With all the precious free time you will have, surely whatever sleep you’ll be getting you’ll want it to be of the highest quality. In order to get your best night’s rest, you will need a premium mattress that can properly support your body (and provide even heat distribution), premium pillows that will perfectly cradle your head and neck, as well as the coziest duvet and the silkiest sheets. Everyone could use some extra z’s they missed out on during the week, so go ahead and spend your weekend fast asleep!
Online Shopping Spree

But wait, it gets even better: get an additional $125 off any bedding bundle— a total of $275 in savings! What’s better than online shopping from home?

Throw on some music, order some delivery, but just make sure it’s BYOB (bring your own blanket, obviously) so you’re not having to put any effort into the setup. As far as cleaning up… well you can worry about that once it’s Tuesday!
To really feel like you’ve made the most out of your President’s Day weekend, you’ll want to stay in bed and sleep like a boss. Give yourself the break you deserve, and indulge in your lazy desires. With this guide, you’re ready for a marathon of laziness.
