    Yep. I meant over. Fixed. I think you have a really good futon.

    If you double pad the futon (two mattresses), and get a well built one, they're good. Single mattress ones tend to suck donkey dick.

    Absolutely, well-built futons can be perfectly comfortable. I believe they are more common in Asian countries. I don't know how to you would figure out what brands are better, but I specialized stores would have good information. There's a futon shop in Cambridge up here, so I imagine they must exist elsewhere, though probably aren't very common.

    But I have never slept on a comfortable futon. The "hinge" breaks easily on most and ends up dipping uncomfortably in the middle, or having the two sides on different levels.

    I would vote look into IKEA convertible sofas and go from there.

    It's 4" of wool that's developing a decided dent in the center where I sleep. But I also don't have any problem sleeping on the ground in a tent, so I might not be the best judge

    When I was futon hunting, I actually ran across quite a few that were called futons, but were essentially mattresses. Some even had springs. I think there are more options out there for a "futon" than for the classic layered wool/cotton on a questionable frame.

    Same town. We are just tired of the place where we live, and want a bit bigger place.

    Thanks all. It sounds like futons, with a frame, which is what we would use, are pretty much the suck. I will check out sleeper-sofas. Thanks all!

    So far it has been a productive weekend. Saturday I worked and then had training, but it was great training with a very good instructor which made the 13 hour day worthwhile. Yesterday we went through the closets and got rid of all the clothes that no longer fit. I'm no longer keeping 'fat' clothes. Screw that noise. I can't gain weight unless I want to walk around naked...well, okay, want to go to the store naked. We also got the rest of the bookcases packed as part of our 'kindle only' plan (keeping cook books and text books). Bathroom was cleaned and all laundry was done.

    Today we are organizing the kitchen and the living room.

    You're getting rid of your books? What? What?

    Um, still need those bookcases, then?

    I love closet cleaning. You never know what you'll find. In more recent years, I've kept on top of cleaning clothing abysses, however, and there's usually nothing new to dig out. I'll save my next session for when the season starts turning.

    I've heard from some people that they don't think e-books will stay as popular in coming years. I hope that's not the case because I love the waste-free side of them. Favored books will always remain on display to become dog-eared with love and multiple readings, however. Boyfriend is odd (to me) and only reads books once, however.

    Books went into storage. I was leaving too many laying around, while the rest were acting as dust magnets. I'll do my reading on the kindle. Bookcases went into storage except for one for cookbooks, texts books and knick-knacks.
