How do I get a 198 lb box up two stairs and inside before it rains?

FedEx freight just delivered a mattress but did not bring it inside. The mattress is in a rectangular box that is 198 lbs and I need to get it up and over two stairs so that I can slide it into the house through the front door. [more inside]

Box spring or wood slats?

We just got a nice new mattress. It came with a box spring. We were using our old mattress on an IKEA bed (the Redalen, which I guess they don't sell anymore) with their cheap wooden slats, the Sultan Lade, as support. All things being equal, we'd stick with the IKEA bed and slats. But are all things equal? Are there advantages to using the box spring instead of the slats?

How to break the cyle go to bed early? Is it procrastination?

I have an annoying tendency to go to bed very late, like 3 or 4 am and wake up at lunch hour. I've tried to change this by getting used to wake up when the sun comes up but I'm always breaking this habit and going back to sleep with the windows covered. I think I got this annoying habit because I procrastinate during the day and when the day comes to an end I don't want to go to bed because I didn't do what was most important during the day. So I try to do that important thing until like 4 am and them go to sleep. I want to break this cycle but it's so difficult!

Help me buy an economical bed!

I'm furnishing my apartment on a truly shoestring budget, and need to buy a bed for the first time. I know nothing about buying beds besides the concepts of frames, mattress and boxsprings (well, that and buying new to avoid bedbugs). What kinds of factors should I be considering? Where and how should I be buying my bed? What's a reasonable price? Please educate me! This is in the U.S.A. [more inside]

Found a bedbug in a library book - what now?

I was reading a library book when a bug crawled out. It was paper thin, and was moving incredibly slowly. My partner captured it and killed it, and then put it between two pieces of tape. We've looked online and, yep, probably a bedbug. What do we do now? Watchful vigilance? Fumigate our entire apartment (which may not be affordable at this time)? Somewhere in between? Details inside, if you want more... [more inside]

Ikea bed and mattress suggestions

Our bedframe is broken beyond repair. Perhaps this would be a good time to get a bed that is larger than a full. Our budget is Ikea level—so I have two questions: 1) Will their queen size beds comfortably support our combined weight of 500-550 lbs? 2) Are there any Ikea beds or mattresses that you particularly like?

Where should he sleep?

I just found out that when your child reaches 35 inches, they're supposed to transition out of a crib -- and that's my son's height. I think he could probably climb/fall out of his crib at this point. But what if he's not ready for a toddler bed? [more inside]

Adjustable bed recomendations

My parents are looking for an adjustable bed (the kind where you can change the angle of the bed, not the adjustable firmness like sleepnumber). We've had a hard time finding good reviews, so I'm hoping some people here will have first hand experience to share. Any good/bad brands to keep in mind? Anything they should think about when buying such a bed, or things you wished you knew before buying one? Thank you!

Searching for a Song Title

"...find someone else to beg..." This is a lyric from a song that last.fm played for me just as I was leaving yesterday. I couldn't get it to show me the title (server and browser troubles) nor did Google or lyrics.* have anything for that phrase. It sounded somewhat like Semisonic, but I'm not sure. Any ideas what this song might be? Don't make me beg.
