So, I was in the market for a new mattress. My old one was so uncomfortable I woke up in the morning completely crippled. So, today I’d had enough, and headed out to the thrift stores intending to get a new mattress.
Those things were gross. Luckily, at the last store I went to, they sold refurbished mattresses- used, but disinfected and cleaned up. I got a full set for $150, which is a quarter of the cost of a new mattress.
I wasn’t intending to get a boxspring too, because I have a platform bed and it’s not necessary. But they came as a set, so I took it.
Well. I just set it up, and lordy is it high. I’m 5’8, and I have to climb into it. It’s the same height as my dresser now, which used to be about 2 feet taller than my bed.
The upside is it’s comfortable, but it’s about a foot taller than my nightstand, and when I hang my feet over the side they dangle with about a foot between them and the floor. So, in short, it looks ridiculous.
Now I just have to figure out what I should get rid of- the boxspring, or the bedframe. My neighbor just got rid of his bed, the frame is sitting out in the alley. Hmmm…
