a shortcut to sleep
(That isn't sleeping pills)
I found a Sealy “mattress topper” at Target (for $75) that I will get in October, instead of an entirely new mattress. 3-inch memory foam mattress toppers are usually sub-$30 (from what I see), but Sealy is selling theirs for more and are a “household name” in mattresses/pillows, so I will opt for that, because I need a good night's rest (and to not be in pain).
So, this is a good call. I still like the Casper Element mattress a lot, and found the size I need at Target for under $500, but I don't have that kind of scratch right now. So, a topper it will be.
