    Thank you that is a very good idea..It really is not the cost as much as not being able to shop.. cant leave DH alone yet and don't like leaving him in care by himself.. recovering from a stroke Aug. 9..only been home from hosp. 4 weeks Friday,10th.

    When I had to rebuild the cushions in my old camper, my ex went to an upholstery shop to buy the foam. They cut it to the sizes I needed. Be sure to get a very firm foam as the softer types will be too squishy and butts will bottom out against the floor. I paid very little compared to JoAnns prices for foam at the upholstery shop.

    You might be able to call them and have it cut and ready so you can just run by and pick it up. Or have a friend or neighbor go after it for you. People are usually very willing to help out in times of trouble.

    Another idea for foam option is to buy the foam egg crates at Wal-mart or wherever and cut and layer them. They aren't to expensive and should go a long way. Just a thought.
