Courtney's Story & How The Sleep Shop Started

I created the sleep shop to educate myself and my friends about the importance of getting a good night's sleep. From there, The Sleep Shop grew. 

I am in my 30s and I have already went through a rough period struggling with anxiety and depression that stemmed from not getting good rest. This took a major toll on me through my early 20s and I knew I had to make a change. 

I sought help from a few professionals and in doing so, I learned a lot about sleep and how your mattress and pillow play a critical role.

The most important thing I learned?


Fast forward to now.

I love running The Sleep Shop. It gives me the opportunity to test a variety of sleep products and help people at the same time. It shouldn't take buying 2 or 3 mattresses to finally find one that fits your needs, and your sleep style. I have a true passion for helping people get quality sleep. 

The Sleep Shop Mission:

Our entire team is dedicated to serving our readers. At our core, we love to help people get great sleep. Its essential to living a healthy life. 

With that said, operating The Sleep Shop is very costly and time consuming. We treat this website like a business, because it is a business. To keep The Sleep Shop almost entirely ad-free, we use affiliate links when recommending products we love. These affiliate links are used to generate a comission when a reader makes a purchase after reading one of our reviews. 

Using these affiliate/special links doesn't cost you anything! 

Whether you click through one of our links to make a purchase, or go the manufacturer's website directly, you pay the same amount (unless we've secured a discount for our readers).

This is the best way to monitize The Sleep Shop and keep our team motivated to continue doing what we do.
