We bought a mattress

May 22nd, 2011 at 02:23 pm

We went and bought clothes with the extra money from my paycheck this week. We needed clothes. The hubby's were full of holes and his jeans were soft. We got him a couple pairs of jeans, a belt, and plenty of shirts. Then, we went into our emergency fund and bought a mattress that we needed. We've been sleeping on a twin-sized mattress together and it's horribly uncomfortable. So, we're happy with our purchase. I'm unhappy spending so much money.

But we've done well with saving and paying off our debt, so I think it's okay. I hope so, anyways.

Our emergency fund dropped $550. But, I'm hoping it'll still be okay.

    Heh, heh, I was just thinking, back in the seventies we bought products to MAKE our jeans soft!

    I'm really glad you're off the twin-size mattress!

    when we bought our house and moved in, we bought ourselves a new mattress, the one we were previously sleeping on was DH's, which was also previously his dad's! so it was OLD. we spent $900 on the new mattress but it has a warranty for 10 years and is the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on.

    Reminds me of our first apartment after we were married... we also slept on a mattress on the floor. And it was an air mattress for the first few weeks! I think that a bed is a decent necessity that leads to a better quality of life, it's not like it's a luxury item (although it can be if you go really high-end, I guess). I like whitestripe's insurance of the 10-year warranty, as well. You can build that fund back up, I'm sure of it! Good luck.
