It Is Time To Shop For A New Pillow

OK~ I am thinking that I read somewhere that you should change your bed pillow yearly. I thought to myself, really? It seriously takes me a year to find the perfect pillow. The pillow I had been sleeping on was no longer supporting this 40 something year old's neck. Hence, the mission to find a new pillow!

While strolling through several stores I found myself staring at pillow after pillow. Finally, one day, while meandering through Target;  I took the plunge and tossed this memory foam pillow into the cart.

My neck is adjusting and I do think this ventilated (nice word, right?) memory foam pillow will be a good fit for me. I honestly did not know that shopping for a pillow could be so stressful. There are round, square, thin, thick, soft, hard, and lumpy pillows lining all the shelves in all of these stores. And would someone enlighten me as to how a busy Mom is supposed to know that the pillow she tosses into her cart is going to be the one that relieves all of the stress of the day?

I will keep you posted and let you know how the pillow situation evolves at this house. I'm more stressed out thinking about how I like this crazy thing than I was with my old, neck straining pillow! I am chanting to myself each night, "I will sleep tonight. I will sleep tonight!" After two weeks, I am still waiting for that comfy night of sleep with this pillow. I know, I know, two weeks is not a fair trial period. I need to be patient and accept the fact that this pillow is the next best thing to a relaxing day at a spa. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

*I purchased this pillow. I did not receive any product or monetary compensation for this post. The opinions expressed here are mine and nobody else's.


  1. This is going to sound crazy but I've had the same pillow for the last 13 years!! (I wash it regularly) Its not that I haven't purchased new pillows. I just can't find one that's the same. It was one of those real expensive ones...$30-40, if I remember correctly. So worth the money! If only I could find one just like it!


I always love feedback on my blog!
