I spent a lot of money for my foam mattress. A ridiculous amount of money. And I would pay it again to get that same mattress. Coming from a tightwad like me, that’s saying a lot.
But what I love more than the mattress is my pillow. It’s called a Z Zoned Dough pillow.
When we bought our mattress two years ago, I noticed the pillow they had in the showroom was especially comfy. I asked the salesman about it and he showed me several densities and lofts (the height of the pillow).
I was in LOVE. I am the pickiest person in the world when it comes to my comfort, so believe me when I tell you that that pillow changed my life. No more neck aches. No more punching down the pillow to get it to contour around my head right. No more headaches in the morning.
I hemmed and hawed about the price, but it was worth it. Even Greg got one after he tried mine.
I used to use a Japanese buckwheat pillow, which was fine, but I will draw blood on anyone who tries to take my Dough pillow. LOL!
Pillows (and mattresses) are such personal choices, but it’s the difference between night and day to get the right one for you. Please don’t be like me and live in misery because of the price. It has been so worth it. I could kick myself for not getting one sooner.
What kind of pillow do you like? Soft, firm, high, or low?
A firm, low-loft pillow is perfect for me. Greg likes his softer and slightly higher. Have you ever tried a buckwheat pillow? It’s a little noisy, but very malleable. It was kind of like hearing someone eating cornflakes every time I moved my head. Unfortunately, I move around a lot at night so it sometimes woke me up. Greg claims I kick too, but I’m not owning up to that.
Side Note: I took the plunge and bought the Roomba 880. I’ll report back to let you know how it worked. I decided to go ahead and get it when I saw that they were $100 off the regular price. I think the sale’s only for three more days. These things never seem to go on sale so I thought I’d better jump on it.
I had done a lot of research since I mentioned it a couple of weeks ago, and this seems to be the best one for the money.
Now to train the dogs not to bark at it.
