Warning this post may bring yawns! Sorry in advance.
How often do we think about the bed pillows?
Me, once a year!
Not because I want to, but because I have to.
Every year, I have to replace our bed pillows.
They get so flat that you can fold them in half, not quite to the point of staying folded but close enough.
I was watching Oprah, one day..many years ago..when I used to watch her..I don't anymore. Anyhoo..the program was about "When you should replace things" (I can't say that is the title of the program, but that is what my brain remembers), according to her and her little expert, bed pillows are supposed to be changed EVERY YEAR! Well, we are all supposed to know about the dust mites and such, so to be "healthy" we should throw them away.
And especially if you can fold it in half and it wont bounce back!
And every year I tell myself that when I do get new pillows, I am going to buy the high quality ones, not the $6 ones x4+tax.
But alas, when the time comes, I just can't force myself to pay those high quality prices. My $26 seems far more reasonable than say $70 to $80.
Why should I pay high quality prices, if I'm supposed to be throwing them away every year? (I try not to throw, I recycle for puppy beds)
I'm still not convinced that Oprah and her expert are right. I mean they have boocoo's of money they can makeup what ever kind of rules they want.
I would still like to buy a pillow that would give me the option to recycle or not.
Do the high quality pillows last any longer than a year? or should I say 3 to 4 years? That's how long it will take to break even.
What do you think or know? It's sad to say, but I could use a little help here.
Do you change your pillows every year?
Feel free to tell me if you yawned! LOL
