At some point in the next couple of weeks I should be getting my new bed. In honor of that, I've decided I need new Bed Stuff. Not blankets because fuck me, we have about a billion of those things! Also, I'm not really into comforters or comforter SETS (probably because my mom was insane for that when I was growing up. On any given day the woman had about 15 different SETS of sheets, including duvet covers and pillow shams and all that stuff! I have about 4 fitted sheets for the kids cribs and maybe 2 for our bed. I don't see the need to have any more than that, myself). I will need a mattress pad, and a couple of deep pocket fitted sheets (we don't like flat sheets, so that would be a waste). I will probably get a new bed ruffle, just because it keeps the kids from realizing that there is space under the bed... and anyone else from seeing stuff we've shoved under the bed.
That leaves pillows. Our pillows are horrible. BTW, don't ever buy pillows from IKEA. Awful. I'm really picky about my pillows, though. I need them to be FLAT as possible, without being flush to the bed itself. I've often wondered why I need a pillow in the first place, but I do seem to need that 1 - 2" of elevation *shrug*. Anyway, I need an almost flat one when I'm sleeping on my back or stomach, and can use a slightly fuller one when I'm on my side. I also need one to hold onto - so I'm constantly flipping from one pillow to another throughout the night. I was looking at these pillows
on Amazon. I'm liking the reviews because most of them comment on their general "flatness", or non-firm-ness anyway. The only thing I don't like is that they seem like the pillows that you sink into, which causes them to plump up all around your head. I hate that.
What kind of pillows do you use and do you love them or hate them?
