Sick...

I've been really sick for the last week - sicker than I've been since dh and I have been together (11 years now). Man, what a week! I missed 4-1/2 days of work. I shudder to think what my students are going to be like tomorrow. I still can't do a lot - I get tired very easily and the coughing is just horrible. My kids are just going to have to understand that I'm going to have to take breaks.

My sister decided she didn't want the bed, so I'm going to list it on Craigslist. Dh and I have not decided on a price yet. I'm selling it all - queen sized head and baseboard and frame (about 20+ years old, a little scuffed but still in good condition), Sealy mattress & box spring about 5 years old (we paid about $700), Memory Foam topper about 3 years old (we paid $100 for that), four sets of sheets (2 flannel sets less than a year old, 2 percale sets a little older), and a bedskirt, unknown age that we bought at a rummage sale. (We bought a king sized bed)

So - I'm taking opinions. Dh and I agreed to a base price, but I'm thinking of starting a little higher, because we can always go down. This is a complete bed - I mean, take it home and set it up. If it were me, I'd wash the sheets again after I bought it (not because they're dirty or stained, of course, but because that's what I do), but otherwise, someone could literally be sleeping on the bed that night, not needing to purchase anything else.

Ideas on a price?

Hi Kris. Sorry you've been sick. I'm not sure about a bed price. Have you checked the prices others are charging on cragislist?

Last year we found a really good mattress on freecycle. If you don't find one there you should also try cheapcycle. They both have incredible deals.
