  1. When I read your post requesting prompts for your 10-min write self-challenge, I was watching TV. I thought back on my day and scanned the room for ideas and typed them in. I was about to press “send” when this over-excited ad announcer insisted all of us viewers immediately drop whatever we were doing and run down to the mattress store for the BIGBIGBIG weekend sale. The graphics were spinning and pictures of beds were flashing by (which I thought an odd choice for a ad promoting sleep) and then up pops this flashing graphic, “Buying Guide for Pillows.” The announcer said it was a limited-time offer as part of the swell deal on mattresses, but only if we acted now.

  2. I like how you prefaced that you would fill in the details about the pillow based on your imagined perfection of the pillow and not what she said. Though unrelated to pillows, I feel like I do that with a lot of things people tell me or that I experience. I am going to start prefacing ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck with the pillow buying! My husband I have Serta’s. Well worth the extra money!

  3. As much as I love to criticize it, I recommend buying pillows from Ikea. They have lots of different materials and firmness or support indications in store. And they always have one of every model on display, so you can touch and feel what it’s like. I love my medium thickness natural foam pillow!

  4. I once purchased a foam curve pillow for over $150… used it for a week and got a terrible neck cramp that only went away once I switched back to my fluffy Sears dime-a-dozen pillow. ๐Ÿ™‚ The cat seems to like having a $150-dollar bed to nap in now! LOL.

  5. I purchased two soft and fluffy ones and two foam pillows. My husband loves copious pillows at night so he has three and I have one haha. I found I actually hated the foam one (too firm for my tiny neck) and only ever use the practically non existent fluffy pillow. I think a certain amount of trial and error is necessary when shopping for pillows. It’s more of a guess and check because even if you try them in the store and like tjem, it might not feel good for an entire night of sleep. I hope you find the perfect pillow. It’s an ongoing search for me! Thanks for sharing this!

  6. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but my honeymoon period with the pillow was brief. It was the best thing EVER for about a week, and now it’s just another pillow. Such is life, I suppose. ๐Ÿ˜‰
