Everyone knows that rotating your mattress will keep it in better form. I usually try to do this every year when the time changes. That way I know it is done at least every 6 months. I always have a hard time remembering if I need to spin it or flip it over. I came up with my own solution to SPIN in the SPRING and FLIP in the FALL. It takes the guesswork out and hopefully my mattress will last longer.

My mattress I cannot "flip", but only rotate. This is how I remember to rotate the mattress:
Which way did I flip my mattress last time? Place a safety pin on the bottom left corner, keep removing it and placing it at the bottom left corner every time you flip and turn the mattress. Rotate and flip your mattress flip counter clockwise, so you are assured that you are getting even wear and tear on that expensive mattress.

I use the old saying "spin in the spring, flip in the fall". I do it on the equinox so it's marked on the calendar. Or you could do it on the daylight savings days. Either way, its a reminder.
