My bucket list doesn’t just consist of travel and adventure. DIY projects and home renovations are a huge part of my list. One of our favorite things about moving into a new house is making it our own by creating art pieces and finding furniture that fits our style. We have an extra bedroom now, which gave me complete freedom to create a room uniquely our own. I found secondhand furniture on kijiji.ca and local secondhand stores, painted old furniture to make it match, and printed canvas prints from previous trips to hang on the walls. The only piece of furniture that I didn’t want to buy secondhand was a mattress. I’d spare no expense for the most comfortable sleep. After more than 30 engineering improvements and nearly half a million happy customers, the Casper mattress had a reputation we could trust. It’s more breathable and comfortable than ever and ships to Montreal. With a 100 night trial and free return pickup, we ordered The Casper Classic to help give us the sleep we need.
The Casper mattress arrived in a compact box. I dragged it into the bedroom and cut open the tape. It was rolled up in packing plastic and when I cut it open, I could see the mattress expanding. I rolled it out on the frame so I wouldn’t need to lug it once it was expanded. I managed to open it and move it on my own but it was heavy.
Within a few minutes, it had expanded into a thick, queen mattress. I sat on it, laid on it, and rolled around on it and it was like one large, fully pillow under my body. I was excited to go to sleep.
There were a couple things we wanted in a mattress for our bed. Cord likes to stay cool. Unlike traditional memory foam mattresses, the Casper is designed to help you sleep cool. The open-cell top layer uses convection and conduction to flow heat away from your body. Similarly, the memory foam layer leverages airflow to pull heat out of the top layer, leaving you cool and comfortable. During our first night in the bedroom, the air temperature was warm and humid. We wanted to test the bed without any air conditioning or open windows. Cord worried that it would be too hot, but he woke up feeling refreshed and cool. The bed didn’t make him feel sweaty or uncomfortable. We both slept soundly. The mattress is softer than my previous mattress and it felt like a cloud under me rather than a firm layer.
Having a great sleep is the key to being productive and being ready to create bucket list memories. I’m not just willing to buy things secondhand; I love it. I can find things that I couldn’t necessarily find in stores and make them personal, but having a great sleep is the key to having a great day and I wanted a mattress with exceptional reviews and service, and one that hadn’t been slept on by anyone else. Capser delivered a mattress with a noticeable difference for a reasonable price with exceptional service. I wish all purchases were so flawless.
