Bedding on a budget
I did spring for a new mattress and box spring at Sleepy's. Luckily, the salesman was reasonable and listened to my criteria. While I didn't necessarily want the cheapest option, I wasn't about to spend a small fortune either. He worked out that I was able to purchase a Sealy boxspring, a Simmons mattress-both are in their overstock, clearance warehouse in the city, and have been set aside. Since I drive an econo car, my choice was to pay $100 for delivery, pay $30 to pick up at the store, pay $0 and pick it up at the warehouse. My friend drives a big Suburban, and we'll pick up the mattress and boxspring on Wed, directly from the warehouse. : )
These are all being laundered and machine dried, which is my protocol on second hand items, to avoid any possible "issues" coming into the home.
I think we did very well in outfitting DD so far with her new bed. We have plenty of cotton sheets to select from, so that was not on our list. I'd still like to find a warm, wool blanket or a heavy, spun polyester Chatham brand type blanket for her as well.
