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 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 abound these days to shopping 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.

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.
- Nectar Mattresses – Sleep is important, especially as you grow older and Nectar has some amazing mattresses. You can try one of their fabulous mattresses risk-free for a year and if you don’t like it, they’ll pick it up for free. They also have a FOREVER WARRANTY™. Because they “cut out the middleman” and it’s 100% employee-owned, you aren’t subject to inflated prices that you often see in mattress showrooms. The company is eco-conscious. NECTAR only uses premium Certipur® memory foams that are better for you and the environment.
- 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, hand crafted 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.
