we spent a lot of money today!

September 5th, 2009 at 12:04 am

We bought a new bed frame and mattress!

Last week we checked out a few stores, but decided to go and look in another part of town. First off we went to a higher priced store, and tried a few mattresses. We decided on one and paid for it on the spot, as it was reduced from $1299 to $899 for today only.

The bed frames, being a higher priced store, were in the range of $700-$2500, and we thought we should go and check out some of the cheaper stores first. Once we got to them though, we realised that, yes, they were cheaper ($200-$900), for a reason! They just did not feel right. Cheaply made, with cheap materials, and no care taken with them. We went home to get DF's work van to pickup the mattress, and talked about spending a little more for a good quality frame.

We went back to the store we bought the mattress from and looked at the cheaper priced frames, deciding on one that was $699 - pine with a white gloss finish, very much suits the style of our house, it is called the 'Romany'. I'll have to post a picture of it next time. The woman knocked $100 off the price which took it down to $599. I also bought a doona cover for $75, marked down from $125. Smile So we saved a bit, but spent a lot in the end. Can't wait to have the first sleep on our new bed though!

It is like heaven, really makes me realise what we were sleeping on before! In comparison our old mattress was like a bunch of coils covered by a sheet. Frown
