There are few things I hate shopping for more than pillows. You can’t truly try them out. They almost never have a trial period. And there’s such a ridiculous range of prices. 

And yet we have to buy them anyway. 

So we did just that today at Costco. A two pack of king size pillows to replace the two with which I’ve been suffering. 

I don’t use the word “suffering” lightly. Just check out the difference between my old pillows in front and the new ones in back. 


Yikes. It’s a wonder my neck hasn’t fallen to pieces.

Despite my concerns over the possibility that the cassette I owned was an alternate cover, it was still correctly guessed, and quickly at that. Again, by Steve B. Think you can guess this week's challenge photo? Be careful or you...

My pillow is probably forty or fifty years old. It's the height I like it and never changes. I'll be devastated if I have to replace it.


They just don't seem to last that long, do they? We have a brand we love and buy over and over, but it only lasts a year or so. I guess it forces us to replace it ;) They are $$ though. Hope the new one is great!


40 to 50, literally?


Yeah, my Sams Club pillows were little more than a year old. Two at most.

It was my mother's. I remember it was a little thicker than mine (which I also still own). When she eventually replaced it I grabbed it. I have no idea how long she had it, but I imagine it would have been either from when they moved into their house in 1972, or at some point during my early childhood.


Wow! That’s crazy, but cool.
