    Well, those are definitely cheap... because you can buy them at WalMart brand new for $100. They're squeaky and definitely break easily.

    The one I saw today was at Liquidation World. It was chocolate brown, fully upholstered (including arms) and sort of a microsuede fabric. Looks almost like a regular couch. Anyway, it is $300 so that's why I asked how cheap you were looking to go.

    Some people that are looking for futons are not necessarily going to use them as a regular bed. It could be used as an extra bed for guests in which case, a futon is completely acceptable.

    I would also love to know who actually gets to spend a third of their lives in bed. I am envious! lol

    Folded up it's the size of a couch (a bit on the small side). I think open it would be in between a single and a double? I'm not sure... Guess I should have opened it up! haha

    Most of us do. A third of our lives = 8 hours of sleep a day. Except for nights like tonight, but I'll make up for that by sleeping in next weekend!

    I think once we're retired I'll get 8 hours. lol But, for now, 5-6 will have to suffice.

    5 or 6 hours? that's not good for you. 8 hours only sounds like alot. that's like 11pm to 7am. if i could i'd sleep ten hours a day.

    See if the Hart store still has any. Everything in the store is on sale since they are shutting their doors.

    That's just not possible for me to do. Last kid is in bed @10, so by the time I make it there it's at least 12 and I have to be up by 6. Some day I will though... some day! lol

    Your emphasis of the word cheap leads me to believe you talk like Regis Philbin. I'm out of CONTROL!

    For fun let's try other words to emphasize.


    You want to SPEND one third of your life on a cheap bed?? Nah
    You WANT to spend one third of your life on a cheap bed?? Doesn't do it for me
    You want to spend one third OF your life on a cheap bed?? Ya that's the stuff

    Ah, but I think that only CHEAP emphasizes that you get what you pay for!!!
