Ever splurged on something that ended up changing your life? Me too.
A while back I was wandering around the mall and ended up being suckered into purchasing a ridiculously expensive pillow from the Tempur-Pedic store. This full-priced luxurious specimen of a pillow was so fancy that it came in a zippered plastic case with a handle. I didn’t walk out of the mall that day. Rather, I glided, giddy at the potential of my solid night’s sleep.
You see, before I bought this fancy pillow, I was buying pillows on clearance at Target and Marshalls, disappointed with them a few weeks after purchasing them. My night’s sleep was not transformed like the advertisements promised.
Those inferior pillows had nothing on the Tempur-Pedic.
It was worth every penny. Seriously. Now I admit that you’re supposed to change your pillow more often, but I basically held onto that Tempur-Pedic until every last bit of puffy joy was slept out of it.
Now it’s practically a pancake pillow and my neck is starting to get sore from using it.
What was I going to do? I couldn’t go back to Target. I just couldn’t.
I walked by the mall recently and peaked my head into the Tempur-Pedic store, but I didn’t dare let myself go in.
“No!” I told myself. “Too expensive!”
And then I got home and began to google. And low-and-behold, my pillow was discontinued and now available as a closeout on Groupon Goods.
5 minutes ago, I pressed click and purchased a brand new, 50% cheaper Tempur-Pedic.
Already counting down the days until it arrives.
