When we got into Owen Sound we first went to check out the mattresses at the Brick. I do not know why, but I never have had a good feeling when walking into a Brick Store. We did check out everything they had to offer, even having a Salesperson overtake us right at the door on us entering the store.
We left the Brick, bypassed Leon's and headed directly over to Sears where we had purchased our first Mattress set over 15 years ago. There we were very pleased with the sales lady, and made our decision:
The Kingsdown "Sonoma Euro Top Queen Size.
The mattress Rob had first tried was super duper firm, and there was no way I was going to be able to manage that with my fibro, as I need a little cushioning. The Sales Lady pointed out this one too us explaining it was a nice compromise for both of us. She was right, as we both tried it out and were pleased.
A couple of "perks" with purchasing from Sears, is that if we use our Sears Master Card (which we have only used once in maybe the 4 years we have had it), they will waive the delivery fee of $69.00. Also if we purchase one of their mattress pads, they will give us a replacement mattress within a year of purchase if we are not happy with the the mattress we have bought. The price to remove our old set is $25.00, whereas The Brick was only $20.00, however I think I like the "perks" from Sears more then the $5.00 delivery savings.
Unfortunately since we did not have our Sears Mastercard with us, we have to return to complete the transaction. We will see how the weather is tomorrow.
Since we were right in the same Mall as Food Basics we also went in there to get milk for $3.97 /4 litre, Half & Half Creamer for $1.98 per litre (2 - 500 ml containers @ 99 cents each), Decaf Tetley Tea, Brussel Sprouts and Celery which was on sale at 99 cents a bunch. We spent $34.00. The cost of this locally, unfortunately would have been much more, as Milk alone is $1.00 more, as well as creamer being $1.69 more. I try to take advantage of the stores while I am in Owen Sound for the grocery savings, if for nothing else.
Before we had left the house this morning, I had also made stuffing, stuffed a Turkey and had set it to roasting at 250*F. When got home, it had been roasting along just lovely ... turned the heat up to 325*F, got the veggies prepared and cooking, and Dinner was served by 4:00 pm this afternoon.
When my Auntie called earlier this evening, Rob shouted out in the background that the "Turkey was awful", as she loves Turkey as much as he does. When Rob says something is "awful" this means it is really really good and he doesn't want to share with anyone else. *Sigh* what can I add to that? nothing.
While I have been sitting here typing up this post, Rob has been outside cleaning out our driveway with the tractor. I wonder how much snow we actually will have accumulate this evening, hopefully over with by tomorrow when everyone goes back to work and the children go back to School.
The dishes are done, with only some bedding I washed and hung on the horse clothes racks today needing folded and put away. Mattress shopping is tiring, or is just me feeling "tired" as usual, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
