Mail Order Mattress

Remember when you had to schlep home from the mattress store with your new bed strapped awkwardly to your car? Hooray for the inventor of the mail order mattress. What a time to be alive!

When I was in high school, my mom and I actually had a new mattress fall out of the back of our truck. Fun times.

Nowadays, having a mattress delivered is free and easy. Mattresses arrive in such tiny, compacted boxes that even yours truly can move them. And I'm a wimp!

When we purchased mail order mattresses for our new home, we recorded their dramatic unboxings.

It's alive! 

See how easy that was? Both of these beds continued to expand for the next couple of hours, reaching their final size by the next day. I'm always amazed by how thin mail order mattresses start out in their box.

Oh, one more thing. I am a rambler. One more, more thing, I'd like to share a nifty email I recently received from one of my blog readers. I've been wanting to share this but wasn't sure how to tie it into anything. This mail order mattress post is my perfect opportunity:

Hi, Kitty –

I emailed you in early December about considering an Amerisleep mattress. You kindly replied, and I wanted to give you an update.

We did order a King bed, and I was surprised that it arrived so quickly. In fact, we weren’t ready for it so we had to scramble to get things ready. (New paint, leading to new carpet, leading to re-arranging the bedroom.) Anyway, we finally were able to start sleeping on it and we are absolutely thrilled! Thank you for posting your honest evaluation.

We got a nice $250 discount when we ordered, and since I used your link I hope you received your bonus. If you didn’t, please let me know what I can do to make that happen for you.

Have a wonderful Christmas!

My blog readers are awesome. When we were chatting via email last month, this same reader wrote:

Thanks for your help. I hope you and your Sexy Nerd have a great Christmas season. (I would call Janet my Sexy Grandma but that just sounds creepy -- even though she is a grandma and is very sexy.) We have shared a bed for 38 years now and have had a great marriage. It's even greater now with four grandangels and one more on the way.

How sweet is that? I love my blog readers!
