Another Question....

How do I buy a bed? Do you have to go to a separate store for the frame and the mattress--How do I avoid paying an arm and a leg and still get a good bed?
Any thoughts on this would be very helpful....

Many mattress stores will throw in a simple metal bed frame with the purchase of a mattress. ALWAYS negotiate price on a mattress - the markup is insanity.

You'll have to buy a furniture bed frame at a furniture store if you want a headboard/footboard.

There are stores such as Walter Smithe in the area that sell all items. There is also Crate and Barrel. I think that both of these places have the bed frame and the mattress and box spring. It it sto your liking for the mattress. Or go to a separate place like PM Gallery to get the items.

Not sure on how to avoid paying an arm and a leg for a mattress. I wish I could tell you how! We bought our mattress 4 years ago. It's a Sterns and Foster mattress and we love it, but it wasn't on the cheap side. I would try to find a outlet store or maybe see if you could buy one off the floor and get a discount on it.
I love reading your blog!!

We bought our bed in pieces. The frame is from West Elm, it is a platform bed so no boxspring needed. Then, we went to a mattress store and I was surprised that the salesperson could give us a deal. I would check mattress stores in the area and compare prices on the specific mattress you like. Good luck!

Go to Costco for the box and mattress. They have the best deals, and great quality. You probably want to get a frame from a furniture store, right? I still have a plain metal frame that just lifts the bed off of the floor, and it came w/ my Costco mattress.

I don't know if the sale is still going on, but Macy's had really great deals on mattresses a few weeks ago. We got our mattress/box spring from Macy's and then just got a cheapy bed frame from one of those little mattress stores, because I still can't find The Bedroom Set of My Dreams.

Carson's Furniture in Eden's Plaza has great mattresses and beds.

the store we bought our mattress at included the frame in the purchase price. I wouldn't buy a mattress off of craigs list but maybe a frame?
