Saving money and the case of the $6 pillow

For the past few weeks I’ve been looking for one of those knee pillows. You know what I’m talking about? Here’s one from Amazon. For some reason I get annoyed when my boney knees touch each other while I’m sleeping. Yes, I’m a side sleeper. Odd fact: when I sleep on my back I have nightmares. Weird, right?

Instead of ordering a knee pillow from Amazon, I’d been using a regular pillow. It worked fine except it was a whole ordeal just to flip from lying on one side to the other during the night. The pillow always pulls the sheets and blankets and it gets all out of sorts. Well, I’d had enough but always one to ponder how I can do things in a contrarian way, I stopped by a local Goodwill and lo and behold, there was the perfect pillow! Queue the angelic choir…

Did it have that familiar Goodwill scent? Maybe. Do I want to know where it came from? Absolutely not. But I love that I found a suitable alternative that has quite a few benefits: it serves the purpose of cushioning my legs at night which will hopefully help a tight back each morning, I didn’t have to order from Amazon, I saved some money, AND it’s recycling something.

Talk about a win/win! Is there anything you’ve been looking for brand new that you found elsewhere gently used? If so, let me know about it in the comments.

Thanks for dropping in…
