Now that you’re older you may want to downsize or redecorate after your kids leave the nest. I moved from a large house to an apartment and temporarily to a room in someone’s house, so my decorating needs are different than they were before.
I’ve also found that it can be a hassle and sometimes physically difficult to haul furniture or other home goods home after shopping for them at a store. Fortunately, online shopping sites that feature home decor can be purchased online to make shopping so much easier to deal with. You can have large items shipped directly to your door.
Add personal touches to your downsized home to make it truly unique as you start your new life of freedom. Whether it’s new furniture, flowers, or mementos, you’ll find something you love by clicking on the links in the list below.
- Bed Bath and Beyond – This is one of my favorite stores for anything to do with kitchen, bed, or bath products but they also have decor, art, cleaning, storage, kids products and much more. Shopping online makes it even easier. Make sure to use their gift and wedding registries and if you have a child going off to college you can get he or she set up easily.

Sleep better as you age
If you don’t have a comfortable bed to sleep on as you get older you may start to develop aches and pains. But shopping for a mattress can be a hassle too. I love that the companies below deliver mattresses in a box that are shipped to your door. Just unroll them and put them on your bed.
- Dream Cloud Mattresses – Dream Cloud is a high-end and luxurious mattress that will help you sleep like a baby. It’s a 15″ luxury hybrid mattress combining the best of latex, memory foam, handcrafted Cashmere, tufting, and coil technology to provide the best sleep money can buy. Its warranty is amazing. If you own a Dream Cloud or even use one and it breaks from normal use, the company will replace it at no charge. It doesn’t matter how old it is.
Home and Renter’s Insurance
- Lemonade Renters & Home Insurance – Protect the Stuff You Love – Covered by AI and driven by social good. This company is changing the business model of most insurance companies. By using technology they have devised a system that pays out fast and is affordable and hassle-free. Rather than keeping money that isn’t paid out, they donate it to non-profits that their policyholders care about. Endorsed by Ashton Kutcher and his team at Sound Ventures. Sign up using their app.
