We have been very blessed and fortunate that most of the furniture in our house has been donated or given to us. But when it comes to your bed, that is kind of personal. Remo and I have developed back issues and we know it is due to the hand me down bed. We have searched and looked at MANY kinds and styles. All we really needed at this time was just the mattress for now. Thanks to those of you who suggested Costco. There just was no beating their price and quality. We decided on the Sealy Postropedic Plush mattress. At promptly 8:30 a.m. our new mattress was delivered. Oh, the best part is that mom and dad B. paid for it and said it was our Christmas gift, early. I LOVE MY IN LAWS!!! Thanks mom and dad and I can't wait to begin beauty sleeping!
