New Bill



Hello all how is Everybody Today?  well here's the new bill trick that New York is doing. Well they have been pushing this for a while but here it is. As you can see from the picture there are two pipes that go into the homes in New York the Water line and Sewer line. Now if the water or the sewer line breaks then the city is saying that  they will not repair it.(  Mind you we are already paying for these lines in our bi monthly water bills). It's on you but they do have an insurance company that will come and fix it for a cost. The insurance will cost about $ 25 dollars a month that will cover both pipes if they break. If it's not one cost it's another when it comes to living in Expensive New York. 

With this insurance it will cost you nothing for the company to repair it without the insurance it could cost you anywhere from $5000 to $12000 to get the pipes dug up and repaired. You know I have to bite the bullet and get the insurance. The lesser of the two evils

Now on to my window problems. People just don't want to work. My window man has been stringing me along for months about getting my windows replaced. Hello Home Depot maybe they will get my windows done without the stringing.
Home repairs and bills suck!
 So what do you think?

My Challenges



Hello all well here's the story for the week. First don't you just love this picture it was so pretty I wanted to share it with you. Now on to my story. Keeping up with doctors appointment, dentist appointment, drugs. It's crazy. First I have so many medical appointment for various women things that I might as well stay in the hospital for a week just so I can do them all. Let's not talk about the drug plans. I am on Express-Scripts where it's mail in medication that has to be filled through mail order. That's a pain to keep up with. Sometimes I wish I could go back to being a kid  and let someone else deal with the things that we have to deal with being an adult.

Ok, since October is Monday I am not ready!!! Meaning I have so much to do because in November I am going on a cruise and October is the only chance I will get to start get everything ready for it. Did I mention that I need a window replaced in my house.  I called the window man and he said he could replace it., It's been a month, still waiting on my window to be replaced. Did I also mention that  it's hard to find reliable people to work with you anymore. Why is that?

This is why I am not ready life is going so fast it's hard to catch up sometimes let alone keep up. But I am not complaining to loud I am truly grateful for the things that god has blessed me with. Did I mention my neighbor hit my car now I have to fix a dent in my car and a flat tire. She hit me and never told me she did it. But I know it was her. $300 down the drain to get my car fixed. 
This is my life. 

So what do you think?

Scary



Hello all well here's my scary story for the week. I got my hospital bill in and it was something to scream about. I had surgery  Aug 1. I stayed in the hospital for about 6 hours. That's all the insurance would pay for. So the hospital bill comes in this week for the hospital stay , the anesthesiologist, the surgery room  the drugs everything that I used in the hospital. The bill came to ……..$20,879.50 if that don't make you scream I don't know what would.

Thank god I mean really thank god for insurance all I had to pay was $200. The insurance company only gave the hospital $12,000. for everything. Which is still a lot in my book. I can really see why people don't want to go to the doctors or afraid to get sick. It's to expensive.

If I had to pay that bill out of pocket I would be down at the hospital billing office telling them my sad financial story and see if they could put me on a payment plan of like $10-15 a month. You know it could take me a couple of years to pay it off and I hope that during that time I don't get sick again where I need more surgery.

This country has to do a better job with our health care system. Our  health care should be free for all that are citizens and add dental care and drugs that  we need to stay health to the list to .  Just like other countries have we need it to.

                                                              So what do you think?

Cover It!!




Hello all well here's the story for the week. Thank god I cover my A** because if not I would have been in trouble. I had put a full payment down on a cruise back in July . For a 12 days cruise in November I paid about $4300 for 2 people, but we also included the cancellation insurance. I am thankful that we did. My partner was having leg problems and he went to see a doctor. We thought that he might need surgery which would have taken us out of the cruise picture for a while. I called the cruise company just in case to see what the refund situation would have been.
They told me that they would refund all but $1985.00 from my cruise bill. That money would have to come from the insurance company because I had  cancellation insurance. Which I paid a little bit extra for but was worth it. Because had I not had it I would be out a cruise and $1985.00 in cash that I could not afford. I was already on a tight budget with this cruise.

So no matter what it is  your doing or planning to do. Make sure you put the right things  in place just in case you have to cover you A** one day.

So what do you think?

I Like Him

                         


Hello Everyone, How are you today. I just wanted to share something with you. You know I like my yard sales and stuff and I really like see what's kind of yard sales and flea markets they have in other states. I find this guy the Bearded Picker who  goes to yard sales in places like Alabama. Texas and such. He's funny at times. I like him.

I love YouTube because it allows me to go to yard sales and flea markets all over the state without leaving my home. I even go to England and see some of their car boots which is like  our  flea markets over there.

Nothing else special is going on but I will keep you posted. Have a great week. So what do you think?

A.C. Bust



Hello All, Well here's the story back from Atlantic City. Some parts were a bust some pretty decent. . First I paid for my first night in Cesar's Hotel $75 dollars the rest of my stay which was 2 extra nights were complimentary. First off  I get to  my room did not have an ocean view as I requested. I had to go back down stairs and fight with them for a room with a view. Then I get to my new  room it was ok, nothing great. I did get my ocean view.  Then I checked my bed like always and  my bed sheets they had a stain  on them. Heck No!!! Hello  housekeeping come and get this nasty sheet off my bed.
Once housekeeping came then I tried to use the coffee maker it's broke. Once again Hello Housekeeping  bring me a new coffee maker. See how the vacations going so far?

Now on to the Hard Rock Casino it's a new one in Atlantic City. All I can say is that I hear them. The music was so loud in the place you could go deaf. They did have good waitress service but the drinks tasted liked flavored water without the liquor. The food was reasonable in price but cold and tasteless. They were not giving you any money away through their slot machines . So I left.

The only casino that showed me some love was Tropicana they gave me $75 in ShopRite gift cards. I won $250 bucks. They gave me a free magic show and I got $6 off my Hooters wings. I love the wings at hooters they are so good.

Overall I did get to the beach, the weather was nice and I visited family. A good vacation without some of the trouble spots to me. So what do you think?

P.S. I got $25 off my room charge so that was a good thing. Since we  complained  we had a right to  I think they just wanted us to shut-up so they paid us to. Works for me.

Atlantic City

Hello all How Are you today?

Well here's the story for the week. So far it's been a quite week for me which is a good thing. I am heading out to Atlantic City this weekend. With surgery and doctors  all this month. I needed a quick get away to the beach and Atlantic City is it for me. Ok, I confess I want to see the two new casinos the Hard Rock and  I forget the other one that opened up in Atlantic City recently. I want to see   what these new casinos look like inside.  Maybe they will be paying you a little something to. Wishful thinking right. At least I hope they have good and cheap restaurants. Because the rest of the casinos on the board walk are  taking your money not giving you  anything and their restaurants suck..
I remember a time way way way back when  I use to get about $50 in food vouchers and $100 worth of free play. Not anymore I am lucky if they give me free rooms. Which this time I have to pay for my stay Sunday night at a coat of $70 bucks. The rest of the week I am staying until Wednesday is complimentary. I know $70 bucks is a lot especially when I use to get that same night free. But I feel  sometimes you have to bite the bullet if you want to do something. Besides my mother lives down there so the trip is also to visit her for a couple of days.
Overall I just need a cheap getaway and for now Atlantic City is it. What do you think?

Worried



Hello all well here's the story for today. This week I got a letter from my medical insurance company asking me if  I  had a secondary insurance company. You see I had surgery 3 weeks ago and I guess the insurance company wants to know if they have to pay the whole hospital bill. The letter stated that I had 15 days to respond if I did not respond in 15 days then they would not pay my hospital bill. I mailed  my response that letter the same day I got it. I was not playing when it comes to someone paying my medical bills.  Mind you I  only stayed 6  hours in the hospital not overnight like I was suppose to. Plus I already gave them $200 toward the operation when I did my Pr-operation tests.
After I read that letter I got worried. what if the insurance company tries to tell me that I have to pay the whole hospital bill. I can't imagine what that will cost. You know people can and do go bankrupt without of control hospital bills. My partner says not to worry the insurance company will pay something. I least I hope so. If not I will be paying the hospital what I can afford which will be $5-10 a month. I am not working so they can't expect that much from me can they?
What do you think?

My Tenant


 Hello all well here's the story for the week. I am kinda sad because my Tenant which is very good and she has a good spirit. Which is rare in people told me that by October she might be moving. I hate the thought of going through the process of getting somebody new that I might or might not have problems with. This tenant and her family are so nice. I don't have any problems with them and she pays on time. She keeps the place neat and clean. Her and her  family are just nice people. She will be missed by me. I have had some crazy and bad tenants in the time that I became a landlord.  My first tenant I felt sorry for her and I let her rent from me. Big mistake. Her rent was always late, she called me all the time for the simplest stuff. Also one time my basement in the rental house got flooded. Me and my partner ran over there. We stayed in the basement cleaning up the water for 4 hours. The tenant did not help and I personally knew her. She had been living in the neighborhood  when I was living in the house.

The house when she left was a wreck It smelled of  piss and  incense . The refrigerator was black with mold inside and she broke my toilet among other things.  I had to pay a lot of money to have it  my house cleaned up  and repaired. Then  she skipped out on last months rent that she owed. I said never again. The tenants after that were always angry. They  never payed on time and demanded that I be there at their beck and call when something in the house broke. Needless to say It took me two years with them back and forth in court because of the security deposit. I was glad to get rid of them 

Now this last tenant again I will miss this family, I am hoping she stays another year. She's the only good tenant that I have and I need her and her family to stay. I know I sound  selfish but when you got something good you want to keep it. So what do you think?

Health Cost



Hello all, well here's the story for the week, I am talking about a personal situating  when it comes to health care. I was into the hospital this past week. I had to have surgery  for something. The hospital was suppose to keep me overnight, but they have a policy that they only keep you for 6 hours and then send you home. The reason for that is  the insurance companies will not pay for overnight stays in the hospital anymore unless it an emergency. Anyway being a cheapskate that I am  and proud of it to. When I was introduced to the doctors that would do my surgery . The first thing I asked them was do they take my insurance because I did not want any extra medical bills coming my way. Was I wrong to ask them that since they were about to open a sista up in the operating room?
                                                       
I also told the  nurses that took care of me don't give me any medication that is not covered under my insurance plan. Was I being to cheap with my health? I realized that if it's was not for my partner having good insurance I would be  screwed when it came to my medical expenses. That's why I wanted to tell you that you need  good medical insurance and extra money on the side for medications and co pays. I still have to pay co- pays when I go to the doctors but I am ok with that has long as the insurance company covers the rest. And if you have not notice  Heath Care is expensive

So no matter what insurance you have make sure you set some money aside extra for the unexpected medical cost that insurance companies don't pay for. So what do you think?

I Need Good Food!!!




Hello all well here's' the story for today. I need good food...… Please!
Where I live in Queens I have been to so many places and their food was horrible. Last night I wanted something good. So I  went  to Applebees. I ordered the 2 mains and two sides. I had the salmon and baby back ribs . My partner had the steak and ribs with  rice and potato. Can I tell you the meats were dry and the sides tasteless. I was so disappointed. But what really shocked me was that the bill was $50 bucks for what?? I could have stayed home cooked a steak and made a simple side for less money. Guess that will teach me to eat out again. 

Last month I went to Outback Steak House  I use to love this place but no more they failed me to. Their food tasted like it was frozen and they reheated it . I was disappointed and the bill came to about $100 for 4 people. I don't know maybe I need to get into the restaurant business and serve what these guys are serving to people tasteless, frozen food and charge a pretty penny for it. What do you think?

Well that's the story what do you think?

Spolied..



Hello all , how are you today. Well here's the story for the week. First let me tell you that I did not win the  Mega Million for $500 million. You know I am upset about anyway. Last weeks I was out yard sailing and  got two  Apple  iPods cheap $10 for 3 of them..   The guy was nice enough and found one charger that fit all three iPods. Well we I got home  two turned on and one didn't. So I took  all three  to the Apple store to see if they could fix  one and show me how to work the other two. Here's the kicker part...

First the worker in  the apple store  told me my iPods were dinosaurs they came out in 2012 and they can not be fixed if they break . I was ok with that as long as they were working  and I can put music  on them I am good. So the nice apple employee showed me how to use the working ones and he tossed the non working one but get this...….

While the salesman was helping me a brat and her mother came in to the store and over to the worker and asked if he could fix their $700 apple phone that did not work. While the sales person was explain to the mother what the problem was her brat for a kid kept yelling at  the mother  calling her all kinds of not nice names and how  she wanted a new phone and so on. But the one the mother had in her  was brand new. After the brat stopped fussing the mother turns to her and tells her if she doesn't stop acting up she will be getting a flip phone. Really? 
 I remember as a child if we acted up in a store we got it good right there in the store. What's wrong with kids now a days.

 Well that's the story what do you think?

They Got Me!



 Hello All well here's the story so far. First Monday morning I get a call from the Chase  Fraud unit. They call to tell me that someone  tried to charge somethings on my debit card. They wanted to know if it was me. I told them no the last time I used my debit card was 3 months ago if that. The person that falsely used my card tried to charge get this a Jack in the box meal and they tried to buy some shoes for about 60 bucks. These charges were in California and I am in New York. Thank god I have fraud alert on my cards. But normally when the bills come in I check them anyway just to make sure.

Now on to the next thing I forgot and left my car doors unlocked on Monday when I came back from going out. I stayed home Tuesday but Wednesday night something told me to check my car.  Sure enough someone had been in my card and took the money out of my cup holder. I had about $25 in lose coins and dollar bills for tolls and parking meters. Mind you the car was in my driveway. I am just thankful that the person didn't smash my windows to get into my car. They can have the $25 but if they had damaged my car it would have been more money to fixed then the $25.

This week  has been a week of trying  to and taking my $$. Hopeful the rest of the week will be someone giving me money or me winning some $$. That's my story what do you think?

I Am Tired





 Hello all  here's the story for the week, I am tried of getting ripped off.  The story goes like this guess who showed  this week to do the yard? Yep my gardener he does the yard and then presents me with a bill for $130 bucks. Mind you he missed 2 weeks for the month of June and in my mind my bill should be $40 bucks.  ( $20 a week  for his services)But he goes on to tell me that he charged me $50 dollars for the seeding of the grass and $40 for the trimming of the tree and  $40 for the mowing . I was mad and asked him what did he do  again?  After I paid him I asked my partner  if he trimmed  all the backyard trees.  My partner told me he only did one. On top of that my partner had to stay outside with the gardeners to get him to do the things that he was suppose to do in the yard without me telling him. Every time I talk to the gardener it's always a new price that's more then what I had budgeted for. He's a rip off and this is my last month with him.

Also I went to the doctors yesterday and my co pay is now $50 bucks instead of the $30. Needless to say he charges me for every test done. He tells me that he will not get paid by the insurance company if  I don't get my eyes checked once a year because I am a diabetic. Let's not talk about how medications keep going up on me. I am worried that the money I have saved will not last as long with all my medical problems. I have to rethink about getting a part-time job just so that I can have money for medical expenses.  Well that's my story what do you think?

Summer Got Me Hot!!!

                                                       Hello All How Are You Today?

Well here's my story I am Hot literally Hot!!! My main air conditioner went out last week when it was 98 degrees and the humidity in New York made it feel like 102. It was hot. My main air conditioner that cools my downstairs was on it's last leg anyway but I pushed it and the air conditioner  said F**K you on the hottest day of the year I am out! So I got my fans and used them and then I ran over to P.C. Richards an electronic store to buy a new. Here's what happened. I got the air conditioner I wanted. The sales man tells me since I have a casement window I need a guy to come in and look at  my windows.  They will charge me  $25 for his services. Once the guy comes in to look at my window where the air conditioner  will be then they can deliver the air  conditioner. But get this they can not tell me how much the air conditioner will be because of the kind of windows I have . Huh????

 Now if I had regular standard windows the air conditioner would be $489. But since I have special  windows  the price is up in the air. Is that crazy or what? I said forget it and talked to my window guy. He's making me a new window and getting me an air conditioner for the window cheaper then the  $489 plus the extra $25 I would have spent.

My gardener is MIA again . I have not seen him in two weeks. Which means if I have to do my lawn this week. He's fired. What do I need a lawn guy for if he doesn't show up regularly and when he does  show up he wants a check. 

                                                    So that's my story what do you think?

To Mad




 Hello All. Well here's the story for the week. My darn refrigerator  hand broke off and the  refrigerator is only about 5 years old if that. I was so mad over the weekend they make crap things now. I replaced a refrigerator that was 20 years old  with this piece of crap it was going but the handle never broke like this one. Now I have to find a guy to fix it. More money spend that should not have been because of cheaply made products. I hate that.

I had sent my mother some flowers and a fruit basket from 1800 flowers last week. She got both before her birthday. I had spoke to her later on and she told me that the flowers I send had fallen  apart in 2 days. I called 1800 and explained to them what happen. I had lost the receipt and was not sure about what flowers I had sent her.  They were nice about it and looked me up, apologized for the flowers. They  gave me a $20 credit toward my next order. Plus they are sending my mother some new flowers. Which was a nice thing to do . Since I had paid a pretty penny for the order.

My $1 a day challenge, yes I am still doing it. Told you I am going to Hawaii next year and I need spending $$. Well I barely made my $$ for June. But thank god I had a mystery shop that paid me $30 bucks plus I rolled some coins which came out to $37.50 which $25 of that is going to my coin  stock  challenge. So I have $12.50 toward my dollar challenge, Nice right! 

                                        Well that's my story so what do you think?

10 Billionaires That Are Cheaper Than You



Just think about the things that you could do with half of the money they make. Vegas Baby I am coming!

Liars, Liars



Hello All, Well here's the story so far. This is my season the yard sale, garage sale season. This is where I go hunting for my holiday gifts that I give and for my other reasons. I have found a few liars in the bunch of yard sale holders and this is what I mean by liars.
When I read a yard sale post they will state that they will have 5-8 families on the block doing yard sales. When I get there they have only 1
In some advertisement for yard sale/garage sales they will say I have this and that to sell. I will drive 25 miles for that certain items and when I get there they don't even have the item they were advertising . When I ask about it they play dumb like they don't know what I am talking about. Liars
 Then you get to other yard sale holders and you see that they stated they have  the good stuff  that they are selling and it' really cheap junk.
Here's another one you get to a yard sale and they have some good stuff your want to buy. The yardsaler has  priced their stuff at retail prices not yard sale prices. Some people really do think they have gold at their yard sales. 
Why tell all these lies to make people drive so far to look at your junk?  Or overprice so junks so that people don't want to buy it.
If your doing a yard sale be truthful and don't waste people's time and money getting to your sale and you have nothing of value to offer or your overpriced. Gas and time both cost $$.
So what do you think?

Yardsale


Hello all well here's the story for the week. Yes that's me in the picture I had a yardsale yesterday. The weather was nice here but yesterday it was cold felt like 50 degrees. I  will admit Sunday was not a day to do yard sales. I made a big...…. $21 dollars for the whole day. Most of the stuff that did not sell will be donated to charity.
I see that yard sales even the ones I go to don't have a lot of people like they use to. I guess people don't have the money like they use to or they don't need the stuff that people are selling. Including me.
Today is the first Monday in June and I am now 4 days behind my $1 challenge. I have not made any money yet and right now I am not a happy camper. My yard sale money doesn't count that's was earmark for something else. So I have to try and find jobs or coupons to make me $30 dollars this month. Got any suggestions?

I need my money I did a mystery shop last month and got my check today in the wrong darn name. The mystery shopping company made the check out in my email name not my real name. I was pissed. Now I have to call the company so that they can reissue me my check in the correct name. If they think I am going to let them have my $15 they are mistaken.

                                     Well that's my story so far what do you think?

Watch Out Caesars...


Hello all where is my story for today. But first Happy Memorial Day to all of you. Have a safe and happy one. Now on to my story.

I get my American express statement yesterday and I scan it  to see what I have on it. Why am I seeing a $59 dollar charge for Caesars Hotel for a no show on May 17-18.
I called Caesars and told them that I had canceled that reservation and made a new date to come  down. I gave the women my canceled reservation code and she told me that was an old code. I could not get made because this women was so nice. I told her I cancelled this reservation for the date the company was charging me for.  She told me that she would put in the system for the manager to listen to the tape of me cancelling my reservation on the phone and if they screwed up which they did. They would refund my money. This I have to wait for 2 days to get a call back from A manager at Caesars Hotel since this is the holiday weekend. This year Caesars hotel has been trying my patience. I think for the future I will be going to Tropicana in A.C. They treat me better

After all of this what I am saying is always check out your statements because you never know who's trying to get some money out of you falsely.  

That's my story what do you think?

Mattress Problems

Hello Everyone, Here's the story for this week. Mattress problems.  I have been sleeping on a mattress for the last 10 years that was about 20 years old( that's another long story) but I decided it was time to get a new one. My body was telling me that because my back, side and legs were always hurting when I woke up. The old mattress had to go. I went to about 6 different stores and the mattress ran from $2600-1300. I tool the $1300 mattress set but the problem was......

The  Mattress King  store was a small store who had great prices but it was in New Jersey. And 3 hours from where I lived.  The delivery charge was going to be around $150 dollars. Which with all that I was getting mattress, sheets, box spring, mattress covers, etc it would be ok until.....

I happen to go in to another mattress store closer to me and I was looking at a mattress that I liked but it was to expensive. When the sales women showed us all she had. We decided to walk because the mattress we wanted was $1900 not including delivery, taxes etc.  Our deciding to walk was the best deal because she matched what the deal was in Jersey that we were getting plus to be honest the mattress store  that we purchased from was $75 less then the New Jersey store. We still got all the bells and whistles for less then what we originally was going to pay. It's pays to shop around and walk out of a store if you had to . So you could save some $$.

                                                    So that's my story what do you think?

For A Yard!!




Hello Everybody, well here's my story so far. Yesterday I was sitting home watch some judge program when I hear out my window the sounds of a leaf blower. I just knew it was to early for my Gardner to come because it's only April 23 and it's the end of the month. He usually starts on the first of the month. Anyway  my doorbell rings and sure enough it's the Gardner saying that I owe him $200 for  Spring yard clean up? You know I looked at him like he was crazy. I told him what did you do for $200 bucks? I said did you do this, that. this. and also that and that. He told me yes. You know he lied. When I checked after he left he did not do half of the things that I wanted done. My conclusion is that his A** is fired and I will be keeping my money in my pocket and going back to doing my own yard work.

My doctor called. I hate when he calls me after I get test done with news I need more test done. This is the scary part for me because my mind always goes to the serious stuff medical stuff . Like I don't have enough wrong with me already. The only thing I can say is thank god for insurance because without that  I would be screwed!
                                                well that's about it so far What do you think?

Old Town Of San Diego Tour Part 1



Took A trip to San Diego and this was part of my trip. Visiting Old Town Of  San Diego. It was dusty but fun!

Loving Vegas & More


 

Hello all here's my story for the week. I am in love with a place not a person. I love Vegas and I am looking to move there in the near future. Like 3 years from now. I have a lot of clean up I have to do to get my house in order before I move. But I have been looking at apartments online. I am also thinking about getting a condo there. I'm in the research stages right now. I know one thing I have to get the Heck out of New York, It's to expensive and the money that I have saved over the years will not last me long if I live in New York during my major retirement years.  

Repairs are for the birds I ran all over town yesterday trying to find a place to repair my DVD Recorder. Since I try and record all of my TV shows  on it  because it's cheaper then getting cable. But I had no luck. Most of the places I went to like best buy and other electronic repair places keep telling me to buy a new one or they can fix it for $500 bucks. Really?? The system did not cost me $500 so why would I repair it for that much! On top of that they do not make this system anymore so where could I possible buy a new one at??? Everyone is pushing cable thanks but no thanks. I will think of a way to get this thing repaired or I will just miss my TV shows that's all

Summer is coming I know it. New York has been pretty cold for spring but summer is coming and with that instead of me going to yard sales I will be doing a few. Need to clear out a whole lot of stuff. Will keep you posted.
So what do you think?

Making Money & Misc Talk

Hello All well here's the story for the week. I am trying to get my life and my mess in order. I am dumping all my unnecessary stuff and selling the rest. I need the money to go on my Hawaii cruise next year and I want to live a minimalist lifestyle. So out the junk goes and believe me I have a lot of stuff to get rid of. Want some of it?

My taxes were ok this year I just knew my favorite uncle , Uncle Sam was going to bless me with a nice refund. Instead I had to pay the fed $1000 and the state gave me $300. So I am out $700 from my personal pocket. What kind of Uncle is that to take $700 from a non- working person. A bad one that's what. 

My Challenges the coupons one is not going to well and the dollar a day is not bad. I made so far about $38 on the dollar a day challenges. The coupon one about $7 I saved for the month of April so far.
  
Life in general is good it's getting warm out so it's time to hit the street and start my walking. God I need to put down the cake and start thinking about my weight. I want to look good for my cruise next year. Suppose to be going to Atlantic City this week will tell you how it went later on. Hope to win some money. Lord know I could use it. So that's my story What do you think?

Matress Hunt


Hello All here's my story for the week. I am on a mattress hunt. I need a new one because the one that I am sleeping on is pretty old. But the part I want to tell you is that when did mattress get so darn expensive. Here what I am talking about

First Stop Sleepy's Mattress store found a queen size  mattress, box spring, pillows, mattress covers, free delivers and removal of old mattress, sheets and bed frame all for $1800 tax not included in the price

Second Stop P.C. Richard they were having a mattress sales, Serta queens size mattress, box spring, frame, pillow, mattress protector, free deliver and removal all for $ 1998.

Third Stop Raymore & Flannigan Serta Queen size mattress, box spring, frame and  free delivery but if I have them bring me a  headboard it would cost me $65 for delivery.  Even though the mattress and the rest of the stuff is free delivery. Cost would be $2500.

When did getting a comfortable bed get so expensive? And now a days you have to fight with the salespeople for free stuff for the price that they want which is about $1800 on average.

Needless to say I am still looking for a good  Serta mattress cheap. Any suggestions?
