Whenever I see an info-mercial for a crazy gadget on TV, I think who would buy that stuff? Apparently my parents would. And if I’m going to be completely honest, this was a good purchase.
During a visit home, my mom asked my dad and me to rearrange the furniture in their bedroom. We got to work, and it didn’t take my dad long to figure out that I wasn’t going to be able to lift their massive king size bed – even after we removed the mattress and box spring. He left the room and returned with some coaster looking things. We placed one under each of the corners, and then we easily scooted the bed into position.
When I asked where he got them, he said he saw them on an info-mercial! I poked fun at him a bit but the truth is these things were really handy. I tell you this – not to endorse a product – but because I wanted to give a word of caution about moving furniture. We used these little gems because I simply wasn’t strong enough. But if you have furniture that is exceptionally heavy or that has sharp edges on the bottom, use caution when moving. It is possible that sliding it across your carpet without any protection could result in some damage to your carpet. Consider using a product similar to what we used or place a heavy duty blanket under the piece before moving. Either one will make it easier, but it will also provide a barrier of protection between the furniture and your carpet.
