My husband and I bought a new mattress today. We checked the big Labor Day sale ads and felt we had a handle on the price ranges. Well, that didn't work out since the "great buys" were not that comfortable to sleep on. Reminds me of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" story. Lots of mattresses that were too soft or too hard. Finally, we decided on one that was just firm enough and slightly over our wish price. My first choice was $1500 - $2,000 more than the one we picked out, but I will be satisfied with our chosen one. Delivery is tomorrow, so one more night on the old mattress.
