Nugget Sofa Alternative with Lucid Mattress

One of my goals for 36 and the new year is to really get w handle on finances. As a stay at home mom, endless cosleeping and contact napping turns to online browsing and shopping. With making zero dollars and wanting something new everyday it’s really not a good thing. But I’ve been on a cardboard diy kick recently and Pinterest is just amazing for that – but that for another post and another day!

So the Nugget has been on everyone’s list since I was pregnant and it comes in fun colors and can be built into different configurations like forts and bridges etc. it’s essentially foam shapes with colorful covers. They are always sold out and it’s $229! My friends that have it love it and use it endlessly.

But since Niko’s room and our house is overflowing with baby stuff as is, we are not getting anything else for a while. In fact I’m trying to Marie Kondo purge as we speak!

There is just a crazy amount of stuff you can accumulate over time. Especially gifts, gift bags, stuff my husband brings home from conventions etc. I’m secretly yet adamantly getting rid of stuff we don’t use everyday.

When we moved to Vegas in 2015, our furniture was being shipped from New York and it took nearly a month. The air bed was killing our back just a week in so we got a Lucid off Amazon! We called it the tatami mat and slept well on it. The coolest thing is that it is a trifold and relatively easy to store. We keep it for our many many different visitors and guests that came to visit.

Fast forward to today! A one year old Niko who loves to climb. I made a hill for him which he can also crawl under and slide down. It’s also his floor bed when we are not in play mode! I put two toy storage boxes under to make a hill and the bounce turtle to make an incline.

I went on the Lucid site to see if I could get a replacement cover since there are coconut oil stains everywhere and I saw there is a recall on this mattress – they are sending free mattress covers to make it compliant to fire safety regulations so I’m in luck! So I’ll update once they arrive.

We had a very fun morning – now off to first nap!
