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.
