i threw out my bad sleeping on the terrible mattress i slept on. it was sunken in the middle and torn along the seams. as i lay on the floor, i realized that I had the bed for over fifteen years. i decided it was finally time for a new mattress. i went to store called "good night mattress." it is not a big store but has a decent selection of mattresses. i was surprised at the advanced state in the science of mattresses. i chose a generic one at first but changed my mind when i realized that the one i had currently was a generic brand. the salesman recommended a tempurpedic, telling me about how it was layered and that he himself had one at home. it was a bit pricey but with a monthly installment plan, i decided it was worth it. i was expecting a huge shipping fee but it turned out that they have their own movers and that shipping would be at no charge. the mattress arrived the next day and even took away my old unwanted mattress. i am happy with the bed.
