DH is no longer giving lip service!

February 18th, 2013 at 01:22 am

Yesterday we spent big money. We wanted a new mattress. We read Consumer Reports and went out to comparison shop, we decided to bite the bullet and buy a very expensive, but well rated mattress that appears to help DH's arthritis.

We discussed it beforehand, but there was still a bit of sticker shock. It is one thing to read up and think about it, and it is another to see that price. We decided it is worth it to buy quality.

We go to pay and we write the check. DH asks if we have that much in checking, and I show him the register. He was pleased and afterwards said forgot we had extra money.

As we drove away, DH said he realizes why we have been eating at home, eating leftovers, buying used or doing without. I said exactly...we can buy nice things when we save up by cutting costs other places.

Today in the way home from church DH said he bet we saved over $15 by eating at home for brunch instead of going out.

He's got it!

    We spend a lot on our mattress in January 2012. I was surprised how expensive they were. It was a very good purchase and helps with a lot of the day to day aches and pains as well as with some of the longer term ones. It is definitely worth cutting back in other areas for.

    That is nice. I too had mattress price shock this weekend. I had to buy two twin mattresses for the boys, and boy, they weren't cheap.

    Mattresses are expensive...we haven't bought one or looked at them in over a decade.
