There is no need to wake up with your neck hurting because you had a bad pillow, says another member, “I recently bought a buckwheat pillow. I’ve tried memory foam and down before, but I’ve been sleeping so much better since I started using this one. I used to kick my blankets off and roll over 30 times during the night; now, I wake up in the exact position I went to sleep in. They’re a little noisy, but the support it gives to my neck is unparalleled.”

People who appreciate music should invest in quality earphones; according to this user, “Though Average iPod earphones do last a while, they don’t sound the best and eventually break at the end of the pin connector.
