    Mattress is a Serta euro top pocket coil on the softer side. Just epic. Returned the box spring and got the king size slat kit from ikea for $120. Just got 7 more inches less height

    I don't get this either. IKEA slats all the way.

    It absolutely WRECKS my morning if the first thing I need to do is "fall" out of bed. I'm more of an "ooze" onto the floor and slowly get up kind of guy

    Update on the Ikea slats. Screw those things. I thought it was going to be the perfect solution but they sag unfortunately so I end wrapped up in my mattress. They will be going back. I think I just need to cut some plywood down and that will be a good solution. Unless someone knows of a bunkie board supplier here in Calgary?

    Depending on what the bedframe looks like, you might be able to use a couple old doors. Random suggestion, may be hard to find the right sizes, but that's what we have under our queen instead of a box spring, and it works fantastic.

    What about a low profile box spring?

    I tried wood for a while, but it ended up sagging and moving around. As much as I dont like the height, getting a proper box spring made a world of difference.

    Which ones did you get? I got the more expensive Slats and they work really good.

    Yeah sagging wood is no fun. It's got to be firm hard wood. Makes everyone happier. Height also matter, regardless of what she says.

    You'll get used to the height thing pretty quickly. It's really not that bad and worth the trade off to have a proper box spring / support.

    There is a Team Canada gear sale on at Winsport today (was yesterday as well) and managed to get a pretty good haul for dirt cheap:
    -4 Nike Team Canada Jerseys (Olympic, Jrs etc) $10 each
    -5 Team Canada Nike Compression shirts $5 each
    -3 Team Canada Nike Compression bottoms $5 each
    -4 Pairs of adidas socks (1 free with each jersey purchase otherwise $1 per pair)
    -Gatorade water bottle -free with purchases

    Sale is still on, but quantities are getting limited. Apparently most the good stuff sold yesterday. (Stick, gloves, track suits, other clothes etc) If anyone wants to go today, its in the Team Canada dressing room in arena A. They also had the last Olympic jerseys for $60 each.. but I was ok with the cheaper ones.

    Thats the crappy part.. its not advertised anywhere! I saw it posted on a FB group by someone who works at the arena. By the time I got there more than half the stuff was gone.. but still some decent deals.
