Princess and the Pea (I'm that princess)

Just like the  Hans Christian Andersen fairy tail of The Princess and the Pea- I am beginning to feel extreme physical sensitivity to my bed. I'm almost certain that my back pain doesn't indicate royalty, so the only other explanation is I need a new bed.

Tony and I are REALLY trying to save money and new matresses are CRAZY expensive. I've poked around online and found that Ikea matresses are actually pretty well liked.  Honestly....they've gotten really good reviews! We took a little trip to Ikea in Palo Alto and gave the beds a little test drive. I  have to admit, at first I was a little under-whellmed in Ikea. I really want a super luxurious bed. I (often) have to fight against the feeling of, "if I'm going to spend the money on [it], I might as well get the BEST of the BEST." I figure, I have my whole life to buy a really high-end, luxury bed- I'm 28 years old with a growing family...and right now is not the time. So, an Ikea bed it is!!


We found one that we LOVED! The SULTAN ELSFJORD. It's firm, eco friendly, and has amazing reviews. Also, we can get a 25 year warranty (say whaaattt!?!?!). So, we've made up our minds and in the next couple of months we are going to buy that bed! I'll let you know how it goes. 

Queen bed: $499.00
With box spring: $649.00 (we'll be buying the box sprig too)

im glad you found your choice. If you at all start to waver from wanting it, go check out an independent matress store and go the last few days of the month. We got a Serta full size mattress for Aiden. It was originally $400 but we got it for $250! The owner was talking to us for a long time and loved our little family and gave us a great deal!

You can have mine! I need a softer mattress. We have the "space" one, you know jump on the bed and you're wine won't spill.....
