Mattress Direct culls a variety of mattresses in textures ranging from firm to plush from brands such as Tempur-Pedic and Serta. Serta's iComfort, for example, evenly distributes support across the body with microsupport gel capsules nestled in its memory foam; a specialized material prevents overheating and the resulting unpleasant lava-chase nightmares. Mattress Direct's stock of bed frames, bed linens, and pillows allow patrons to assemble complete bedroom sets in one trip, and an express delivery service prevents the hassle of renting a moving truck or outfitting each leg of a new bed with a rollerblade.
Since 1973, Master Cleaners has tidied garments using time-tested laundering techniques and the latest water-free cleansers. Staffers greet soiled outfits with a thorough sudsing, folding sheets into neat squares and erasing spots from shirts and jeans. The shop also cleans bulky items such as bedspreads and sleeping bags, returning them at a convenient drive-thru window. Dry cleaning removes set-in stains from delicate items such as business suits and silk dresses. To make garments look as sharp as possible, an expert tailor will close holes, replace loose buttons, or add googly eyes for a nominal fee.
Mattress Direct and America's Mattress give somnambulant snoozers a place to rest weary heads with comfortable, supportive mattresses and sturdy box springs. Drift off on a Serta Perfect Sleeper, a mattress coaxing numbered lambs into soothing slumber for more than 75 years. Each mattress features an ultra-soft top and back-friendly firm springs below (twin mattresses start at $414, box springs start at $135). Couture catnappers can snag a Vera Wang mattress for a fashionable 40 winks, with the choice of traditional innerspring or all-foam models, all crafted with careful attention to detail and style (mattresses start at $689, box springs start at $160). Customers can catch Z’s on a luxurious iComfort mattress, a dream-deliverer constructed of memory foam and supportive gel to whisk heat and tension away from reposing bodies. Because the shop is offering a special on select twin mattresses ($79–$99 each), this Groupon can assist mattress misers in hoarding up to four beds-to-be or cushiony improvised sleds. All Serta mattresses also include a doze-defending warranty.
Now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home-care projects underway. Pick up a Steel Grip six-piece screwdriver set for $8.49, a VPT rip hammer for $6.29, and a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Illuminate the newfound décor with a 12-pack of Ace light bulbs ($21.48), the better to see by as you make use of a Purdy four-piece premium paint-tray kit ($19.99). If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge. With the second option, a significant selection of unfinished furniture is available to fill almost any room in your house, apartment, or secret lair. Options range from bookcases and desks to chairs for the very young and the slightly less young.
Lord’s Cleaners and Island Cleaners have both been de-mucking delicate garments, pressing unruly threads into shape, and sarcastically insulting stains until they wither in shame for more than 20 years. Let these professional stain-and-smell strikers launder a shirt ($2.19), a pair of leg sheaths ($5.42), a dress ($8.55), or an entire suit ($8.66). No matter what dirt or wrinkle patterns riddle your wardrobe, both Lord’s Cleaners and Island Cleaners have the gumption and the expertise to make your wearable wearables wearable again (in terms of wearability).
