Bed in a Box

the mattresses were each these duffel bags in a box

My son is very busy and orders a lot of stuff from Amazon instead of spending precious time in stores.  I spent most of November and just about all of December with him and his kids last year.  During that time, he ordered 2 new twin sized mattresses and a full-sized mattress from!  I would have never thought of that.

They aren’t the best mattresses I’ve been on, but certainly not the worst either and worth the money they cost, I do believe.
