Ok I have moved about a dozen times in my life. Trust me I'm a pro at this. This will be long so I'm gonna divide into sections.


  • Don't buy most furniture until after you move. Why pay to move it when you can just have it shipped to your door, probably for free, or if you buy it locally have it delivered?
  • Don't buy more than the bare necessities at first. It is tempting to make your whole house pretty, but money won't go as far as you think, and its easy to buy things in the beginning that don't work as well as you think or end up being wrong for the space. Better to have what you really need and take time to consider what you actually want to make your life better in that particular space. For me the necessities are:

  • Craigslist, Amazon, Ikea are your friends. Online, read reviews critically. If people are saying it fell apart, don't buy it.

    • I have to give a particular shout out to Ikea stuff, I have some furniture I bought 10 years ago from them still in my home

  • Shop Homegoods for discounted decorations, housewares, kitchen stuff, etc when you are ready aka after the move.
  • If you need bedding Target often has cute bedding on sale.

    Moving itself

  • Don't hire a moving company. Hire a U-haul, then through the U-haul website hiring people to load/unload the truck. You can have them load/unload only heavy stuff and take the rest yourself to save cash.

    • I did this on my last move and they moved all furniture from our 3 br house as well as most of our boxes for like $200. I think we spent less than $500 total on truck and movers (including gas).
    • I actually highly recommended this over moving furniture yourself in a borrowed pickup, or even yourself with a U-haul. The cost is well worth the convenience. Moving is hard.

  • Don't pay for boxes. Boxes are easy to find for free. Typically I take 2 or 3 evenings late at night (around 10 pm) and just drive around behind strip malls until I find enough. (They don't put gross stuff in the dumpster, if there is I skip that one). Sometimes it only takes 1 night. Don't bother with grocery stores or large department stores, they crush their boxes. Check out liquor stores and the dumpsters behind strip malls.

    • Places I have found boxes in plenty:
      • Behind a Barnes and Noble
      • Behind a party store
      • Behind an Ulta
      • Behind clothing stores in strip malls (these are usually pretty larger, great for bigger and lighter items)
      • Liquor stores (they get so many they are usually happy to tell you what day they get their deliveries if you call. These are smaller boxes great for heavier items like books)

  • Don't box clothes. Take plastic trash bags, cut a hold in the bottom, put clothes hangers through the hole, close the tie part, now your clothes are still hanging up but contained and ready to move. When you get to the new house, hang up in the bag, then just rip the bag off. Way easier than unpacking.
  • Don't buy bubble wrap, find a place that stocks free local papers (every city usually has these around) and use paper to wrap your dishes and breakables. Save junk mail and store flyers as well for this.
  • The one thing you should buy is moving plastic wrap, the kind on a 14" roll. Use it to secure blankets around wooden furniture to protect from scratches. Use it wrap any fabric furniture to protect from tears. Use it to group some awkward small boxes into one entity. I only discovered this the last time I moved and will never move without doing this again. This is the only time I have ever moved nothing got damaged, and there is also this very satisfied and "mission accomplished" feeling when your couch is wrapped and ready to go.
  • Label everything with not only the contents but the room it goes in. Even in a small apartment this helps a ton when you unload. When you go to unpack everything will already be in the correct room. I recommend these inexpensive, color coded labels to make it even faster/more convenient:
  • Pack a box in each room of the things you will need your first night/week so you can easily find it in the unpacking chaos. So in your bathroom pack your shower stuff separate, in the bedroom your sheets, and in the kitchen keep your pots/pans and dishes clearly marked. This may not seem like a money tip but if you don't do this you will find yourself running to the store for paper plates or toothpaste you don't really need.

    Once you are in

    Don't forget you are going to have to buy things you forgot about or that just come up those first few weeks. Somehow you will move in and realize you don't have a mop, or a kitchen trashcan, or about 50 other things that just happened to be your roommates, or where the hell is the dish detergent and oh fuck I forgot that I need toilet paper and I ran out two days ago.

    I try to set aside about $100-$200 for these weird incidentals. If you are worried about running low buy stuff at the dollar store, you can get a better version next paycheck. Also if you are low on dishes this a great place to get some that are honestly perfectly fine. Big lots is also good for cheap dishes. Also not a bad idea to plan for the money to eat out a few days during the move when you normally wouldn't. For me its the one time I let myself have fast food.

    Once you are moved in, be careful about your grocery bill if previously you were splitting groceries and not just buying your own. Buying for one is very different than buying for two, easier for things to go bad in your fridge.


    There will be deposits and unexpected service fees. When you set up your accounts ask specifically what will be on the first bill other than normal recurring charges. Do not think the bills will somehow be half of what you used before. Use A/C or heat sparingly until you see a couple bills. Replace all your lightbulbs with LEDs. Shop around to make sure you buy the cheaper ones they work just as well and they will save you a fortune on electric.

    Buy a programmable thermostat if your unit doesn't already have one. They are easy to install yourself, will save you a lot of money buy avoiding running the heat/air while you aren't home, and are only about $40 on Amazon.

    You need internet, you do not need cable. You do not need the fancy internet plan the company wants to sell you. Start with the lowest tier internet plan and buy Hulu or Netflix or maybe both. If you have streaming issues upgrade the internet later. When you set up cable request that you not be on a contract (cancelation fees when you move and don't want it are a bitch).

u/duenotsoonenough · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

1,000 sq feet is a lot! Could you use the kitchen sink for baby baths? Or get a little infant tub, or even an oversized tupperware (or something from the container store). But really, you could use an infant tub and just fill it with water from the sink.

We had a 925 sq foot one-bedroom apartment when our son was born. When he was first born we just had a boppy lounger that he slept in on the floor next to our bed. We started with the Halo bassinet but he HATED it and would only sleep in the lounger. Literally. We tried everything. Only the f*cking boppy lounger. It made me so paranoid bc it said it wasn't safe for infant sleep but he loved it and did fine in it.

Anyways, when he got older (maybe at around 6 weeks) we moved him to a pack n play that had a raised mattress thing (not a bassinet, it's just a thing that clips on that lifts the mattress piece up). And then, we basically moved the pack n play depending on where we wanted to be in the moment. So, when we put him down to sleep, if we wanted to stay up in our bedroom and watch a movie, we'd set him up in the living room/main room. But if we wanted to be in the living room and cook a late dinner or something, we put him in our bedroom. That way, we weren't disturbing his sleep or naps.

We got this when he got a bit older and started collecting more toys We still have it now (2.5 years later) and it's great. Holds a ton of books and toys, and is easy for him to access.

We had a little play gym thing that was cute and collapsable, though it stayed out for the most part because it was the best place to put him down for entertainment for a while.

We got this as a gift (expensive AF) but I LOVE it because the drawers are super deep, and now that he's too big to be changed on top of it, we're just using it as a dresser and it fits a ton of clothes, diapers, wipes, blankets, etc.

Once he started moving around, our whole apartment became his room. We basically permanently shut the door to our bedroom and baby proofed the entire rest of the apartment so he could crawl around. At that point there really wasn't any point in trying to save space lol.

Honestly, it's going to be fine :) when they're first born you end up wanting them so close all of the time anyways. And, for the first 9+ months they don't really move a lot or take up a ton of space. It's just once they start moving around that it becomes slightly more challenging.

u/kaidomac · 0 pointsr/Mattress

I just got a queen Zinus "Green Tea" memory foam bed. Currently $289 shipped on Amazon:

It is pretty firm. I actually ordered a 3" gel topper because of the firmness (you sleep on top rather than sinking into it), but that proved to be too squishy (the topper leaves an imprint of your body when you roll). I have a 2" topper on another bed & imo that is the right level of squish vs. firmness: (the bed is firm to the point where my side wasn't sinking in & was kind of being compressed instead, like when you lay on thin carpet when watching TV or something)

Also, I picked up their awesome 18" tall frame:

TONS of storage space underneath, easy to setup (2 pieces that screw together & fold in half, lightweight & only requires one person to assemble...literally takes more time to unbox it than put it together), no noise in use, plus with the 12" Zinus bed, it's at a good height to walk up to & fall into bed. You will need a grip sheet underneath, otherwise the bed will slide off pretty easily:

I also recommend getting a waterproof sheet (goes underneath the regular sheets), as any spills will sink directly into the foam mattress & never, ever come out:

I got these Mellanni sheets - they are thin, but feel nice:

Slightly better than the Amazon Basics sheets I have on another bed. I have a plastic bin underneath the bed for storing a spare set of sheets & waterproof sheet (both are washer/dryer-safe). Total comes up to under $600 shipped for a 12" memory foam bed, 2" gel topper, 18" metal bed frame, a non-skid pad for the frame, two sets of sheets, and two waterproof mattress sheets. I was going to get a Casper or Leesa, but those were like $800 just for the bed...I got all that for $200 less, still a pretty hefty investment, but a decent deal. Other than that, you just need some pillows & a duvet or blanket on the top.

The mattress comes vacuum-sealed in a box, so you just undo it from the packaging & let it air out for a day or two to fully decompress. The frame comes in a large but thin box (two frames folded in half with some assembly hardware). I didn't have to mooch a truck off a friend or go to a mattress store or anything...ordered it all off Amazon Prime, showed up in a couple days, put it all together by myself in minutes. Easy peasy. Would definitely order another one!

u/mag443 · 2 pointsr/Shopping

Okay so this probably sounds too good to be true but I decided to try a "mattress-in-a-box" thing too and my budget was a tad lower (by like 600 haha I'm a student) BUT I Think I've found the hidden-gem of mattress brands: Zinus. I got mine from amazon, and if you have prime shipping is free.

This is the one I have:

Would give it 7/10 on the 0-10 Firmness scale (which is my personal preference), maybe 5/10 on that memory-foam sinking in feeling, and its held up super well, and only ~$250.

Total satisfaction out of 10 - I'd give it 9/10

Here are some nicer ones:


Also - if you don't already have Honey - it is the best app/add-on for coupon codes.. like for real I'm not a rep for them haha, just crazy good deals. It automatically tries a bunch overtime you're checking-out online. Link to that is: if you wanna check it out!

u/idontknowiguess · 1 pointr/socialanxiety

Thank you. You are kind! I will be happy to share with you some of the philosophers I have enjoyed. What I have enjoyed even more is listening to smart people critique these philosophers. They have a way of breaking down the difficult concepts in understandable ways. Go on YouTube and listen to a guy named Rick Roderick. He has 3 lecture series which introduce you to many of the most famous philosophers. I especially enjoy his critique of Nietzsche, Freud, Kierkegaard, Sartre, Habermas, and Hegel. There is a podcast called the Partially Examined Life which is full of really, really great philosophical discussions. One of my favorites is their critique of the movie "No Country For Old Men".

The bed I bought is off of Amazon, strangely, and it is awesome! I cannot recommend it will be as comfortable to you as it is to me. I am a very large framed dude and this one worked wonders for me.

It is available in many sizes, and very, very affordable. Again, I cannot promise you a good night sleep on it, but it is perfect for me.

Finally, for the science fiction reading I would suggest starting with the best SciFi book ever in my opinion: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It is just too good to put into words.

Enjoy your time on this Earth. Relax, friend. You will find your place. I promise.

u/MoonbeamThunderbutt · 3 pointsr/bifl

I have one. I was extremely skeptical because I'm really picky about mattresses, but my partner had heard good things, and we needed one, so we got one. We've had it for about 2 months.

A large part of the reason I'm picky is that my body is very curvy (wide hips, big ass, small waist), so I need a mattress that is squishy enough to accommodate that and yet somehow also supportive. I am normally a stomach sleeper and/or roll around all night trying to get comfortable, but I find that I mostly fall asleep and wake up on my back now. That's pretty amazing in itself.

Overall, I would recommend it. They have a good return/refund policy. They offer a free squishy addon pad if after a month or so you still feel like it's not soft enough. I have also read that showroom perception of mattresses generally doesn't have any correlation with longterm satisfaction. Basically, I can vouch for the fact that the Casper probably won't hurt you, and it will last longer than a spring mattress at an equivalent price.

For me, it's not the kind of mattress that I associate with "luxury". I don't sink into it like I'm laying on a cloud. But that's not good for your back anyway. It's more that it's just consistently supportive. I don't wake up in pain. And, best of all, I didn't have to go to a showroom and lay on a bunch of mattresses and get hassled/hustled by a salesperson gunning for a commission. We ordered it online while we were moving and it was delivered directly to the new place. I lay on it and it doesn't hurt me. So it checks all the boxes for me.

[Edit] Btw, we have it on one of these basic wire bed frames. Many reviewers also have a Casper and they say it works fine. So I don't think it matters that much what you put it on.

u/gwarwraith · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I read you already bought yours, but I want to put in my thoughts anyways in case anybody else is looking at these or you change your mind. I live with a buddy of mine for the time being and he bought one of those memory foam beds for his daughter (4). The bed is ok, obviously you can't expect the world from a <500 bed but its a good bed for what it is. I slept on it for about 3-5 months can't remember and I don't remember having any issues.

I decided I wanted my own bed, and so I went to Costco and looked around at their selection they had in the back aisles on the wall. There were about 15 beds they had in bags lying longways like you'd see clothes in a closet. Well, I found a gel top foam mattress for about $500 I think it was. It is by far the best bed I've ever slept on, and my friend has some kind of expensive foam mattress over $1000 and I like it better than his. The brand is Sleep Innovations, which I think is the same type of one as those beds.

Here is a link Gel Mattress

It's got the gel on top then the egg crate looking thing and THEN the regular bed. OMG, when I brought it home after buying some of those $80 Jennifer Adams sheet sets in queen size, and the AMAZING BLANKETS for $15 ( I bought) I was so giddy and squirreling around in my bed my friend thought there was something wrong with me. It was literally comfort overload.

The bed came in a box, all rolled up and you just flop it out of the box onto the ground and it sucks up air until it "inflates" I guess. It smells for a day or so then it's great. I love my bed. I bought a frame to go under it so I have extra storage and foam mattresses like to sweat which causes mildew under the bed (found that out the hard way with another foam mattress).

I also bought the foam pillows from costco as well, I think it was 2 pillows for $20 or $10 or something I can't remember. I LOVE COSTCO!!!!!!!!

u/jassykangaroo · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hello! I'm sorry you're sad, but I truly hope to help a little!

So, I really love finding furniture etc, and I can 100% stand behind the foam mattresses sold on amazon. I've slept on one for OVER 10 years, and they're SO cheap and SO comfortable. Zinus is the one but if you really want the premium version, I completely think the extra money worth this

In terms of frames, I have a soft spot in my heart for ikea frames.

u/ImperfectlyInformed · 12 pointsr/slatestarcodex

Speaking as someone who lives in a small SF studio apt...

In addition to your excellent recommendation on varied sizes of containers, I have this 100 clear ziplock bags set as well as a variety of larger bags in varying sizes. So if I've got something with little accessories, I'll toss those accessories in tiny ziplock bags, then put them in a larger ziplock bag shared with the main item when I store it on a shelf or a container. For example, I do this with my medicine cabinet / toiletries. I organize stuff into ziplock bags by function ("sinus / cold", painkillers, GI, etc) and then toss them in the closet in a small box, to avoid clutter in my cramped bathroom and keep only things I use routinely close at hand.

I've got a couple little tupperware boxes like which I put labels on and stack in my closet. Plus I've got an old shoebox or two for knicknacks.

In my small pantry, I've got these little DecoBros Expandable Stackable Kitchen Cabinet and Counter Shelf Organizer to maximize vertical space.

I put my seasonal clothing into space saver "packing cube" compression bags.

Some of my cleaning and organizing is motivated by dust mite allergies - but ultimately I'm working on a long-term solution to that. So I'm getting immunotherapy to become resistant to allergens and also use a dehumidifier to kill the dust mites.

I also keep an inventory of the items that I really liked. If I bought it retail, I'll find it online. That way, I can sell or junk something with the peace of mind that I can buy it again when I need it.

I do the typical things to minimize possessions: I have a few merino wool items that I wear most often, have a single bankers box for files with almost nothing it it (scan), no desktop computer, store very few physical books, and so on.

For my sleeping area, I use this cheap Zinus frame and store a bunch of stuff under it. That gives me extra storage and it's also cheap and easy to replace I do a long move. For my bed itself, I use a Sleep Number bed - it's easy to pack it into the back of a sedan, and you can customize the firmness to get to the "medium-firm" which clinical trials have demonstrated to be the best.

My desk/dining table is public white 42" high dining table which allows me to stand if I want; these 29.5" Bar Stool fit and store nicely.

On the digital front, I have a very hefty dotfiles repo, use for tasks, and have finally transitioned pretty much all my finances to the double-entry beancount leveraging (after trying the earlier ledger/hledger tools).

u/GrimwoodCT · 1 pointr/IKEA

As an additional aside to amend this:
Our IKEA mattress support after eight years of vigorous use (plus I’m a pretty big guy) developed a crack in one of the wooden mattress supports. We really loved the frame and didn’t know what to do. We ended up getting a ZINUS Mattress support that fit perfectly inside our IKEA outer bed frame. It is extremely sturdy, unbelievably easy to assemble, holds up to 1100 pounds and wasn’t terribly expensive. Obviously, every frame/mattress size has its own corresponding ZINUS product we simply adore the king-size one that we got. The link below will indicate what we bought. It does not require a Bunkie board or plywood to support our mattress.

u/Konryou · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Just to add to warwatch who had most of what was on my list:

  • bathroom floor mats
  • measuring cup (this kind and this kind; Pyrex is good for the former but any old set will do for the latter)
  • dish brush (like here, way better than a sponge)
  • whisk
  • tongs
  • tupperware containers
  • grater
  • coasters
  • ramekins
  • meat thermometer (I got this one about 4 months ago and it's been pretty good; no more "is this what cooked pork/chicken/meat looks like?")
  • silicone spatula
  • pot holders, oven mitts
  • Various sizes of wall hooks. Useful for hanging things on the wall that would otherwise be leaning or on top of something (broom, mop, linter, hair dryer, depending on your cabinets you can even hang pot lids on the walls of the cabinets)
  • paper towel holder
  • shower/bath organizer - depending on how you are set up, you can use a shower caddy to hold most of your things; my showerhead and the pipe leading to it from the wall is angled in a way so that isn't possible but I've had this for about 1.5 years and it has been great.
  • if you have a cabinet in the bathroom, something like these small drawers may be useful for organization.

    Some of this depends on how much cooking you are planning to do, but it's all pretty essential in my experience.
u/sxooz · 6 pointsr/minimalism

I despise big bulky bed frames. When I was deciding if I was okay with floor sleeping I started sleeping on the floor to see if it was comfortable. I did this for a while and made my decision about getting rid of the bed. I found that I'm comfortable floor sleeping if there's carpet but not if it's hard flooring. You also want to take into account if you are comfortable having sex on the floor, possibly having company stay over, or relaxing on the floor as well. In the end I did keep my bed, and I went with a sturdy, but very practical bed frame. This frame doesn't require a box, and it folds for easy moving. I paired it with a foam hybrid mattress that's easy to move when i move. The frame is definitely not necessary if you live in a house, but I got it for my cargo van. I love that your entire wardrobe can slide under the bed in bins.

I am assuming you probably can't paint, so these are really awesome. You can also get them at I use them and they are freaking awesome. They have so many different colors and they come off and go on easily. I haven't had any problems at all with them!

In my bathroom, I have two storage containers that work for me and sit on the counter, stacked on top of each other. There is one like this, not sure about the size on that one, but small enough to fit on your counter and have hair things, make up, toothpaste, etc, in it. Then on top of that, I have a smaller one similar to this on top.

Also, 3M hooks are your best friend! I have one for my keys by my door. One in my shower for my loofa. One on the side of my nightstand for a small hanging flashlight and my sleeping mask thing. You can seriously use these everywhere! It saves a lot of space.

How exciting, I am sure you will figure out what works for you!

u/amisamiamiam · 2 pointsr/vegan

Have a solid 100% latex mattress and I swear the guest bedroom twin is more comfortable. I like more firm though. You can get more firm latex but price goes up.

Here's the discounted latex info:

This is for the twin on amazon, they have different sizes. Look for certipure if you do go memory foam. (Its way different than the old tempurpedic days.)

We used this bed FJELLSE from from Ikea:

and these slats:

Honestly if I had to do it over I'd buy a larger mattress on Amazon and the Ikea frame and slats. Just too comfy. The latex is dreamy but you have to trust you get the right firmness or you are stuck sleeping in a hammock like experience. That and the fact it weighs a ton. Good luck mattress shopping is fun!

u/SlayinSalmon · 1 pointr/flytying

I like to use the cheap [plastic drawers] ( that you can find pretty much anywhere. They're not real classy looking but they're super functional and come in lots of different sizes for storing different materials. Craft stores also carry storage solutions that work well for organizing small things like beads and hooks.

I'd like to say that my materials are sorted by both type and color, but that would be a lie. They are really just sorted by type.

Here is a [short video tour] ( of a pretty reputable fly shop owner's bench. I've found this style of setup to be both comfortable and productive.

I recently bought a queen size, memory foam mattress (2 inches of mem foam and 10 inches of reg. foam). I have amazon prime so it shipped for free in 2 days. The mattress took a day to expand out of the packaging and it had a chemical smell for a little while but I was super happy with the purchase, I didn't have to go anywhere and talk to anyone to do it, and the mattress is super comfortable. I spent $517 and it was worth it.

Edit: Our mattress is on the floor and I can't tell the difference between that and having it on some sort of platform or frame. This is the one we bought.

u/ElissaB89 · 1 pointr/MakeupAddiction

For my makeup table I have a 3 way mirror that both sides move, that way i can see all sides (behind when I do my hair). This is mine- Mine dosent have lighting, but if it did I would want normal light bulbs and not the yellow off color that the lights that save on electricity use. That way your lighting is true to the outside lights.
I wish mine had more storage. Id suggest maybe doing like the picture and having some on top that hold the stuff you use all the time. Mine has drawers that I keep everything else in. To clean it, because mine gets dusty and left over makeup (powder), I use cleaning wipes. Hope this helps!

u/stubborn_introvert · 3 pointsr/femalelivingspace

So maybe the quality can vary or some people get duds, but we have this zinus frame and we have loved it. It’s been esp great since we are renters that move occasionally, often in older homes where the stairs can limit what goes up them. We’ve never had squeaking. Put a bed skirt on it and storage tubs for out of season clothes and extra bedding.

We were tight on funds then and still are. I imagine someday we will upgrade to something prettier, but maybe not until we have our permanent home. I’ve thought about finding a headboard I liked to add to it. For now it’s been pretty practical.

u/grclzbthkrr · 17 pointsr/Assistance

I’m not sure what your current financial situation is, but I wanted to share this anyway. Maybe you could quickly save up for it or make a mini GoFundMe.

My husband and I purchased this mattress when we moved to an apartment together. It’s super inexpensive but has been the best mattress either of us has slept on, ever. It’s a perfect combination of firm and soft. The prices also vary depending on what size/length you get

u/BagelSafetyOfficer · 2 pointsr/SanJose

I highly, highly recommend this mattress foundation. I move pretty frequently and have zero storage space and this is a great solution for both of those problems.

I used to have a really heavy and large wooden futon frame, which was pretty squeaky and unnecessarily difficult to set up but I ended up buying this model off Craigslist and I'm never going back. It's pretty easy to set up, very sturdy, and it makes no noise. And the best part is that the frame itself is pretty light and compact once you break it down so it makes moving it from place to place way easier.

No opinion on the Ikea mattresses, and I'm not sure if this option will work for you, but I slept on this mattress for over two years and never had a bad nights sleep nor notice anything go bad. I prefer harder beds, but that one was still super comfortable (everyone loved it).
you WILL sink into this one, but still be very supported. I never felt like the mattress got overly warm, but I was in SF at the time so that probably limited how hot it could get. You don't need a foundation with that bed, so you could always get one of these.

After I moved I gave it to a friend and he thoroughly enjoys it.

u/budbutler · 8 pointsr/DesignPorn

i love my memory foam mattress, very comfortable and resilient. it was also much cheaper than the average mattress. the 2 main downsides i have come across though are that they can be a little hot. so not great in summer and if you lay in one spot to long it can be hard to move. so if your say watching a movie in bed or reading a book it can be hard to adjust your position into something that is more comfortable for sleeping. i won't lay in my bed anymore unless i know for sure i am going to sleep. other than that though the mattress is fantastic, it's very easy to fall asleep you don't get lumps in the bed, and if you have a partner movement doesn't transfer much so you don't wake them up. oh thats one last complaint, sex is a bit harder since you sink into the bed more. i would definitely recommend getting one though if your looking for a mattress. i purchased a Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress, Queen for 200 bucks at the start of 2016. when it was on sale. it's 279 now.

u/partisan98 · 7 pointsr/malelivingspace

I got a version of this platform bed. I really like it.

Cheap its only about $80 for a queen size
No boxspring needed.
Dont need tools to put it together.
14 inches high so you can fit stuff under it (i keep my laundry basket under it) and can crawl under it when you inevitably drop your phone down the back.
2 pieces and it folds so you can easily carry it up stairs (18lbs each). Folded up it can fit in the back of a sedan if you are moving.
Pretty solid i dont hear any squeaks or anything from it.

High chance you will pinch your fingers while putting it together.
It looks like something you would find in a prison/barracks. I highly suggest a $10 bed skirt.
You can stub your toe on the center leg pretty easy. Throw some pipe insulation on it under the bed skirt to save your toes.

u/sidescrollin · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

Ill just give you links.
This one is firmer than the other one, and while it is noticeable, it isn't any less comfortable. I can fall asleep on my friends bed just like mine.

this is the one I have, which is squishier, but some of that is also our different frame.

One is cheaper than the other, and has a 10 year warranty instead of 25. They are both nice, I would just make the call based on preference of soft and firm. They come in a box, and you have to leave them out for at least a day so the foam can uncompress. Neither of us had any issue with it smelling. It has a smell because its new, but disappears in a day or two.

stay away from the handy living wood slat frame, the wood doesn't last, especially if you are um....persistent in the bedroom. My friend bought this one, and we both agree it is better.

both have good clearance, so you can store stuff under the bed. If you don't have the 100ish extra, you can always save and just sit the mattress on the ground until you can afford it.

I brought this memory foam mattress from Amazon:

  • Sleep Innovations 12-Inch SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress

    I can't recommend it enough. It is super comfortable. I have a bad back and this bed is just plain awesome. There is only one downside to memory foam that I'm aware of: you sink in a little and the foam doesn't allow a lot of air circulation so without AC in the summer it can be too warm. A mattress topper can increase the airflow and make it comfortable. I would recommend the 12" over the 10" (read reviews for details). It comes in a big heavy rectangular box and it smells a lot until it has aired out. It has to sit unrolled/unpacked for a couple of days.

    I also brought this mattress a couple months earlier from Ikea:

  • SULTAN FJORDGARD (latex & foam)

    It is much denser. I actually alternate between the two but the Sleep Innovations mattress is my favorite and I tend to use it most of the time (I have a guest bedroom with the same size mattress as my regular bed).

    Both of these are on Ikea Malm bed frames ( with the most expensive bed slats Ikea carries ($150 for queen so not that bad, -- the cheaper slats have a lot of bad reviews and I'm supper happy with the slats (the frame itself is fine but it is particle board with laminate).

    I brought the foam one in November, 2012 and it has held up well. I think it is a little softer now but so far it is good. I pan on buying a king when I get a house.

u/J4663rw0ck · 1 pointr/minimalism

So I bought this one: Rolling Bed JFM-36080 Black-60inch Queen Size Japanese Mattresses

All the way back in 2014. I proceeded to use it daily for at least 2-3 years. First directly on a tile floor then on a frame. Then it was used for an actual futon frame for a little while. Then I lent it to a friend to use as a primary mattress. And now it is sitting back on a carpeted floor as a guest bed situation.

I will say first off that it has paid its dues and really needs to be retired now. The padding is going to get compressed over time. Served me very well for a long time. When I was moving I just rolled it up and tied it off with the connected tied and threw it in my vehicle and I was good to go. That being said there were definitely some issues.

Take this as you will, but as a single guy, bringing ladies back to your thin mattress on the floor does not impress anyone. You can and probably will get some criticisms thrown your way. Although actually worked better than heavy foam mattresses.

If you purchase a frame and put it on there, it very much upgrades the whole look and depending on what you use may be indistinguishable from a regular mattress. Just be careful to avoid frames with thin wooden slats, get a totally flat board underneath. If you put your weight down on a specific part of your futon you can snap those slats (ask me how I know). I’m not sure if the built in cover was removable or washable, but I always used a fitted sheet and washed that and it worked just fine.

If I had to rock it as my primary again, I would probably build a simple wooden platform to lift it. Something like this:

All in all I was happy with it and if life brought me back to using it, I wouldn’t have much to complain about. Hope that helped. Feel free to ask any questions.

u/poncho_dave · 5 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

Honestly, a full size bed would be perfectly adequate for two, if a bit cozy. It would also buy you a little extra room when every inch counts. I'd recommend a frame like this one that would allow storage underneath. It squeaks a bit and it's definitely barebones, but it's affordable and can fold up easy for moving. I own one in a queen size and have a very small room as well.

As for the rest of the room, get a tape measure and a notepad and measure the footprints of everything in the room so you can draw a plan view of the room and play around with configurations. If casual seating is a must, I would get rid of the couch and instead get a nicer futon frame in full size that can perform double-duty.

WIth a space this size, it's all about finding multi-functional pieces and things that can be broken down quickly and tucked out of the way.

u/Kendallsan · 2 pointsr/lakeview

actually, i'd try amazon. we got a really amazing mattress, topper, and headboard/bed frame for about $1000 and they delivered right to our door.

if you are looking for something cheaper, this mattress is shockingly comfortable - we have it in our guest room and my VERY picky best friend loved it. you can get a great bed frame for cheap, too, there are a bunch on amazon.

i'm all for shopping local, but easy is also important.

u/Cville_Reader · 3 pointsr/Parenting

We have a bookshelf that has a shelf on top and storage bins on the bottom. I really like it! It's great for storing books on the shelf and dress up clothes in the bin. My only complaint is that our tallest picture books don't quite fit and we have to put them on their sides.

Even though it's pretty inexpensive, I feel like it's a pretty sturdy shelf and it was easy to put together.

u/tehzephyrsong · 3 pointsr/TinyHouses

You get what you pay for, and you spend a third of your life sleeping, so a bed is worth investing in.

That said, would you be willing to consider alternative styles of beds that can be put away during the day, like a rolling futon mattress or a foam pad similar to the one that the sofabed you linked uses? If you prefer a firmer bed, a futon like the one in the first link will serve you well. My SO and I sleep on the queen-size one and it works very well for us, although we both like very firm beds. It's pretty easy to roll up and move when needed.

Cheap = free futon on Craigslist. Just take the mattress.

For a new, cheap, actual bed - Amazon

Foam you will just sink through to the wood. Futon mattresses are better but they are a bit tough. For a proper nights sleep get a coil mattress.

Inflatables are great for 1 or 2 nights. Very comfortable. Get the ones that are twice as high for maximum comfort.

u/PartTimeVelociraptor · 3 pointsr/bloomington

Depends on your definitions of "cheap" and "decent". The price for a queen mattress can run anywhere from like $300 to $8000... so words like cheap/decent are going to be pretty relative. calls anything under $700 for a queen a low-price mattress. (Midrange is $700-1800.)

With that in mind and free delivery being important, you could consider one of the very highly rated foam mattresses from Amazon. Here's a link to Tuft & Needle's mattress -- but just scroll down to the "Compare to Similar Items Section" and you should see the specs and reviews for Sleep Innovations and Brentwood Home as well.

I'm no expert, but I feel like one of these 3 mattresses could be the most "decent" in the $500-600 range.

If you are looking cheaper (but not smaller--because of course a full/double would save you money over the queen size)... there should be options locally. We bought a spring mattress from Pate's Mattress Outlet (4500 Centennial Drive--Might be closed now?) about 6 years ago for about $350. (We did drive it home ourselves, though.)

It was good enough for us (an only moderately overweight couple), but after only about 4 years a couple springs had sprung and were poking through the top edges of the mattress--probably from us sitting on the edge of the bed.

Here's the link on Amazon if you're curious:

u/RareRibeye · 3 pointsr/teslamotors

To start things off from other threads/videos I’ve seen:

The trunk seems to fit a twin size mattress. One user recommended this. With a twin, two adults should comfortably fit. You could probably uncomfortably fit 3 people (spooning).

Camper Mode: AC drains less battery than heaters. Seat warmers also drain less battery than heaters. Overnight heating in freezing climate seems to drains ~3-4%/hr or ~2.4kw/hr according to this video, but YMMV.

Make sure to lock the vehicle via the Screen and turn off the alarm while you are sleeping in the car or your movement might cause it to beep throughout the night. Also turning off sentry mode is good if you want to conserve more battery as well. Got the above advice along with other helpful tips from this video.

u/Mitzy_r · 2 pointsr/Mattress

You should look at exactly what is supporting the bed right now. There should be at least a couple center supports holding up the middle of the bed. If those are missing or broken you just need to figure out how to prop it back up again.

Being there is no boxspring you probably have lots of slats under the mattress and as long as they are not broken or warped beyond repair, beefing up your center support should be sufficient to make thing stable again. Worst case scenario, beef up the center supports and get a couple pieces of 3/4" plywood to put across for support as well. Just make sure it is evenly supported on the sides and center. Or you could go with something like this: and just pull out your existing support system. I wouldn't mess with anything like you posted in your link.

Beyond that its tough to say without actually seeing what is going on under the bed. Your mattress may or may not be ruined, just really depends on how bad it was and how long it was like that. Get your foundation right and go from there.

I agree with downsizing the bed - it definitely dominates your long skinny room. We actually replaced a newish expensive posturpedic with this reasonably priced mattress and couldn't be happier. You don't need a boxspring.

You can also get wallpaper to mimic that feature wall:

If I were you, I'd splurge on lighting (task light for reading, mood lighting, etc) and getting a nice dock and speaker set up for your phone / music. Be sure to include artwork that is important to you, and bedding that you love.

I got Tuft & Needle. No problems with heat or sex. I had a small issue (my fault) where I nicked the outside cover while unpacking it. I made a suggestion to them in their survey and they refunded me an unsolicited $100. Great service.

The bed starts off a bit firm but settles. Not in the way a bed says with springs, just got more comfortable. A year later and I still love it. No issues at all. Get a good waterproof cover (that doesn't make noise) for any new mattress, especially foam. You don't want any spills (or other fluids) soaking into foam.

I'm in small room myself, trying to make the best use of space.

Consider a Japanese futon. I've been using one for the last five months and I love it. It is...maximally firm. Personally I like the "primal sleeping" aspect, and it helps a bit with my sciatica.

I'm using:

Lately I've been considering a bit more padding.. possibly going with a legit tatami mat, otherwise a firm 1" foam pad.

The futon folds up quickly and fits in the closet. Plenty of room for a narrow bench sofa to use during the day.

u/dgamr · 1 pointr/Mattress

You absolutely do not need the Casper foundation specifically for the Casper mattress, the foundations are all pretty similar. These look marked up a lot, even compared to traditional retail.

I don't recommend the Zinus mattresses, but their foundations / frames / storage frames are pretty good & inexpensive, and I've heard good nothing but things about them:

Check Casper's latest terms to see what restrictions (if any) they have on the mattress return policy (visible damage and not using a foundation typically invalidates the warranty / return policy of a few bed in a box offerings). They might specify slats or something like that.

The foundation you choose will affect the feel of the mattress to some extent, but not a lot. The main thing you can do with the foundation to make the whole experience a bit firmer (if you end up wanting that) is to build or buy a bunkie board (which is basically just a sheet of plywood between the mattress and the foundation).

And if it's not obvious, huge gaps in the slats are going to cause some wear and tear on the mattress. For example, a 4"-6" gap is fine (12" is not).

Ya, on one hand I can see that, but people are unlikely to specifically seek out some Chinese made cheap $4 widget to order directly from an unknown manufacturer who might consider selling directly to consumers, but I'd imagine larger purchases like a mattress from reputable, recognized companies, people would not be as hesitant. Seems like it's bound to go that direction as more people are buying things like this for these type of prices relative to storebought mattresses:

How many people are going to be going to mattress firm to spend 3-5x the price when awareness catches up? The big mattress makers are surely going to have to adjust over time as they lose sales to people buying direct and I'd imagine a lot of these mattress stores will too.

Both are good choices, $50, luna is a cotton jersey feel, coop is a more smooth and ever so slightly thicker feel.

Foundation: , basic zinus metal frame, 67

u/totally_not_at_work · 4 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I hated. HATED. my sleep number mattress. I had an "expanded queen" which is the same as a queen size, but six inches wider, with two air bladders. the two air bladders were tiny, and provided no support for a man my size (6'5"). The mattress felt wonderful for a few months, until the outer shell broke down and the only support was the air bladder.

Two separate air bladders means no cuddling - any variation in firmness (which is inevitable) will result in an uncomfortable ridge in the middle of the bed. If you have sex in or near that ridge, you will stretch the shell, and create a gaping chasm of sorrow in the middle of the bed.

I suspect that a single bladder mattress would be acceptable, but for the price and durability (roughly 18-24 months) it is not worth it.

I currently rock one of these these, which costs 1/10th the price, and has already outlasted my sleep number in terms of comfort.

I am on month 12 with this mattress, I don't expect it to last much more than five years. At $100 a year for pillow like comfort, I am very, very happy.

This has been recommended before, and it was such a great idea I bookmarked it. If I could give proper credit I would, but Reddit's search function is the absolute most useless piece of garbage I've ever been subject to in 20 years of computing.

u/ucla_posc · 2 pointsr/minimalism

Traditional beds have a mattress sitting on top of a box spring (a mattress sized wooden frame with springs in it) which in turn sits on top of a bedframe (typically made of wood or metal).

An alternative to this, is to get a bedframe that has wood or metal planks ("slats") going across the frame. They perform the role of the box-spring while contributing significantly less bulk. In North America, these are most popular at Ikea--it's a sort of European approach. Here's a low slatted frame on Amazon. Here's IKEA's slatted bed base category--in IKEA most of their frames can use a slatted base.

If you search the /r/minimalism for sleeping stuff you'll see that a lot of the more dedicated minimal people here use Japanese-style sleeping futons, relatively thin memory foam mattresses, and people here with actual bed-frames often forego a box spring or use a slatted base.

Good luck.

Get them shipped from Amazon. I got this one for some family who had fallen on hard times:

Pretty much all of the foam mattresses on Amazon are highly rated and come shipped with all the air removed. You need to open them, let them grow back to full size and air out a little and they last forever with no issues with the sides losing structural integrity like a regular mattress if you like sitting on the edge. They also require no box spring. You can get a cheap bed frame from Amazon too for the same price as the mattress. all told you can spend $200 bucks for a full bed with frame and mattress.

They are very firm, however. Which I love and they don't wear out in the middle and form that body crater that a lot of normal mattresses do. There are options for different top materials like gel and memory foam and a few with little raised cooling towers that let air circulate under.

    There are a ton of other posts about the real estate market in town and its really a sellers market right now. We have a ton of new-build apartments that have gone up recently and are expensive for what Pittsburghers are used to paying for rent but are in-line with your budget.
  2. Amazon - seriously. Unless you want spring for some reason they have this 12in foam mattress for $190 which will be cheaper than anything you can get locally.
  3. This is a tough one because it can vary so much. I would research the type of car you want to buy, then look comparable ones up through Kelly Blue Book or AutoTrader and go from there
  4. Verizon FiOS is the best speeds per price if where you decide to live gets the service - and honestly if you were between a couple places and theyre close go with the one that gets FiOS.

I use a Sterilize drawer until too but not so huge. Unless you have a full boy scouts troop with you, I think it will get crazy to find anything in there.

I use a table top one which I place on the picnic table.
I reserve one drawer for basics like lighter, matches, Ziploc bags, spices, etc.
Inside the other one I put the utensils and in the third one I position my cooking tools.

Sterilite ClearView 3 Storage Drawer Organizer

As for the camping kitchen, here's some good reviews photos of a Coleman brand. It will give you an idea of the way you can use it so you can determine if you want it.

Coleman Pack-Away Deluxe Kitchen

I personally have a big see through plastic tote where I carry my whole camping kitchen.
I have a collapsible sink with a drain which I use to wash them (or carry to a washing station depending of where we are at) and then I leave everything to air dry in there.

In the same plastic tote I place my drawer unit and some kitchen towels, a grilling mitt and a vinyl tablecloth with some holding hooks.

Bear in mind that I can't fit very long cooking tools in the drawer unit but I just use some short ones and the things that are longer like my stainless skewers, still fit in the big tote.

Idk how to break this to you, but you could have gotten a really great one on Amazon for like $400.

u/oscarsmygrouch · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Back in 2014 I needed a really cheap bed really quick so I ordered this bed and mattress topper from Amazon Prime.

It is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. I now have it in one of my guest rooms and most of my family and friends prefer to sleep in the room with that bed! So I would highly recommend those products.

  1. This vanity is the most expensive item on my list.

  2. I've always wanted a vanity. I've never had a nice piece of furniture for myself and this would be just for me. I'd love to have somewhere to sit and relax while I do my makeup or paint my nails. Every girl needs a battlestation!

  3. No, I would not. I'll get it eventually, it's just a matter of time. :) I've actually told DJ that I'd accept a vanity as a form of proposal. hahah.

u/earfullofcorn · 17 pointsr/Frugal

Amazon sells these mattresses that are similar to ones sold at Ikea that get shipped to you in a duffel bag and they unfold.

Here's a twin for $160. It's the #2 best selling mattress on Amazon. Here's the best selling mattress list if you're interested.

Another suggestion is to go to Target and get the Target brand air mattress. When I first moved to an apartment, all I slept on was my air mattress because I couldn't afford a bed. I've had it for 3 years with no problem. Here's the one I have. It's $46 plus you'll need a pump ($15). There are cheaper ones if you want a smaller one.

Also, I'd second someone's suggestion of buying a futon. It can function as your couch and bed. Good luck!

u/TheSlyEmu · 1 pointr/baltimore

Metal bed frame.

Good condition and free. All you have to do is come pick it up. It's already dismantled and can fit in a small car.

I try to do local whenever possible, been happy with Wood You and the The Futon store on N 16th and Main St.

That being said... recently got this for a guest with an "extended stay." We ordered this mattress and this bed frame. Total cost for a queen size bed/mattress: $381.00 (including shipping).

Quality was awesome and it's better than the bed we're using ourselves at more than 3x the price.

u/Protanope · 1 pointr/LosAngeles

I got this mattress from Amazon when it was on sale for about $185, but its current price is definitely not a bad deal. Read the reviews (ALSO FREE SHIPPING TO YOUR DOOR so that you don't have to go down to a store and pay for them to bring the damn thing to you). I like it a lot.

u/sarlok · 1 pointr/Frugal

I got this mattress and this frame along with this mattress protector. I've been happy so far and I am sleeping better than before. I have lower back issues and need good support. This is a firm mattress and it takes a couple minutes for you to sink in, especially the first month. After the first month or so it does not take as long for the foam to shape to you.

u/ThrowMeAwy1996 · 3 pointsr/BDSMAdvice

I have the same type and it's great link

I'm pretty big so we got the extra sturdy, can hold like +1000 lbs bed. It's great, no complaints. Hasn't broke and doesn't make a lot noise.

u/joeltrane · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Yeah, I did some research on the different densities. I was mainly trying to decide between this mattress with 4" of 4 lb density and [this one] ( listed on here last week with 2.5" of 3 lb density memory foam. I was concerned that the other one would not have enough memory foam to feel comfortable and that the 3 lb density might wear out more quickly.

One of the top reviews for this mattress was by a 200 lb woman and she seems to love it, so I'm hoping it will work out for me. I weigh about 215, by the way.

u/bobbybick · 7 pointsr/videos

Got a "burrito bed" from Amazon in 2016 for $230 + $80 for a metal frame to put it on. This was after I tried going to brick and mortar stores and saw that they wanted $700-1000 for just a mattress and the frame would be like another $200 minimum.

It's probably the best sleep I've ever gotten and plan to buy one again in the future. It was made better in that the salespeople at brick and mortar acted like I was a crazy idiot for buying a mattress online and that they "hoped I like bedbugs".

u/AlexTakeTwo · 3 pointsr/femalelivingspace

I am a big fan of my Zinus storage bed frame. Very solid, no squeaks after almost 2 years, and the extra height/no box spring is great. I bought mine on the recommendation of a friend, she and her husband have had theirs for a year or two longer than I have and have not had issues either.

It looks like they make a platform model and low profile too.

u/relaximadoctor · 1 pointr/fixit

Flip it if it's double sided. If not, and funds are really an issue cover the area with a generous amount of duct tape and buy a cheap mattress topper. Walmart had some for under 20$.

If you have the ability to save up 250 or so you can buy a new mattress that will really improve your sleep quality. Avoid mattress firm. Here is an example from Amazon

u/pistolopera83 · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I've been sleeping on a Zinus Memory Foam 12" Mattress for over a year now and it's quite comfortable. Truth be told before this I was sleeping on a very very expensive tempurpedic and I have trouble telling the difference between them.

Investing in a good nights sleep is crucial, sleeping well is very pivotal to keeping a healthy mind and mental state.

u/wildmonkeymind · 1 pointr/AskMen

Ikea Hemnes bed frame with 12" Sleep Innovations memory foam mattress, a couple memory foam pillows and a couple standard fluffy pillows. Simple solid colored comforter. High thread-count sheets. Oh, and king sized, so myself and another can both go full starfish comfortably in the night.

All told I spent somewhere around 1200-1500 USD, and everything has lasted me (very comfortably) for four years. Simple, classy enough without being overpriced, insanely comfy, rave reviews from all ladies who have graced it.

My friend bought this. I fell in love the first time I tried it out and had to buy one for myself. I've had mine for 16 months and now my mother wants to get one.

It is warm. I like my bed warm though. If you get hot really easily then meh.

You will have to check on a return policy but I do believe there is one if you hate it.

It may be hard but it softens up as your body generates heat. Winter you may notice it more hard. Doesn't bother me.

You can read reviews and sort them by new. I love it. I no longer wake up in back pain. Also got a nice memory foam pillow and my neck feels great every morning now too.

u/JasonDJ · 1 pointr/Frugal

I really love the Tempur-pedic knockoff I got on Amazon. Plus, a 20-year warranty and eligible for Prime Shipping. I coupled this with an Instant Foundation and put it in a new king-size frame that I bought at a discount furniture store.

I'm quite happy with my purchase. The mattres and foundation, combined, were $775 (for a King set) when I bought it. I had the money available, but opened up an Amazon Credit Card at the time for an extra 10% off (or maybe it was $50? It was two years ago, tough to remember) and also bought Prime at the same time.

u/puck_functuation · 0 pointsr/orlando

I recommend not even going to any of those places. I bought a queen-sized memory foam mattress on Amazon a year or two ago for about $300 shipped. Here's a link to the best reviewed mattress on Amazon. You can narrow it down from there.

Good afternoon,

I’m trying to build a king sized futon bed, using a metal frame (like this: Sleep Master Platform Metal Bed Frame/Foundation (King) - Perfect for Spring, Latex, and Memory Foam Mattresses ) I’m not sure how to attach the hinges to make it work right, along with how/where to attach the back bar to hold it the couch position.


u/Bridger15 · 3 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

They aren't. We just moved to a new house and bought this one from amazon for $450. So far it's been great, and is very comfortable.

u/u60n0 · 104 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

Honestly you can go on Amazon and get quality beds. I bought a memory foam queen mattress online for $300 shipped. I worked as a delivery driver for a mattress company for 2 years, and I can verify that this mattress is on par with the quality of our supposed "$2000" memory foam mattresses. Mark ups are INSANE. My boss would spend around 2k for a delivery from the manufacturer, which would contain something like 6-8 full beds (mattress, boxspring, frame). Each of these would sell for between 1k and 4k with delivery, varying only somewhat in quality. Only the really low end "discount" beds were noticeably less comfortable. The one I picked up online stands up to many of the luxury beds I've worked with, its the best mattress I've ever slept on. 10/10 would buy a bed from Amazon any day and probably from here on out.

Edit: for those who have been asking, here is a link to the one I picked up:

u/balla786 · 3 pointsr/Edmonton

I bought this:

Waiting for delivery, but I've read good things about it and at that price, I can't find anything queen size that cheap. Delivery is free, it's compressed into a box.

u/The_Drizzle_Returns · 2 pointsr/madisonwi

In particular, if you watch slickdeals for about a month the 12 inch Queen Sized Zinus Mattress goes on sale quite frequently for $210. Its a great mattress and worth the money (shipped free, prime is 3 day while non-prime is about a week).

u/twulferts · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

I have the queen T&N and I like it just fine. It starts out very firm, but will soften up after a few months. I also have a latex topper that I got off Amazon that softens up the feel of the top.

I got this plain box for it for now because it was cheap. Eventually I'll probably upgrade to something made of wood so it looks a bit nicer.

P.S. The mattress also runs a bit hot, so keep that in mind.

u/dontsmileatnazis · 1 pointr/personalfinance

You could probably get a dresser super cheap or even free on craigslist. Used beds don't seem like the greatest idea to me, but you could get something like this setup for not too much money.

u/bababooey_bababooey_ · 3 pointsr/pittsburgh

Well I bought [this one] ( around 1 and a half years ago. I love it. It's not the most expensive mattress in the world but I really like it. My ex gf always raved about it. I have it on 2 box springs side by side on a metal frame.

You take it out of the package and give it time to expand and within 10 minutes you will be like 'wow' and within 3 hours you will be like 'how the hell did that come out of that box?'.

u/CSD18 · 1 pointr/minimalism

I got one of these used for dirt cheap but I would have zero issue paying full price, it's been excellent. Great storage underneath and no squeaking or movement.

Amazon Link the brand is Zinus, and it's semi memory foam. I got the full 8 inches one so it was 150 with tax for me :D. they are the best, i feel so rested from last night sleep.

u/Sphexi · 1 pointr/VictoriaBC

I got the 12" yeah, looks like it's on sale now as well:

I find it pretty firm, even sitting on the edge it doesn't give way as much as a worn out spring mattress will, I was really surprised. I'm not a tiny person either, so average sized people will find it really firm.

I'll basically always buy this style from now on, and at this cost and the convenience of having it show up at my house why not?

u/phylogenik · 1 pointr/rational

How do more expensive mattresses like this compare to e.g. sub-$200 mattresses that you'd get from companies like Zinus (even sub-$100, depending on the sale)? All my mattresses have been in that price range and last me many years no problem, and we put them through a lot of use (as a bigger, married guy). They seem as comfy if not often much comfier than e.g. mattresses you find in fancy hotels or airbnbs, but I've never consistently slept on $500+ mattresses like the ones you linked (but Casper in particular annoys me, since for a time it seemingly advertised on a bunch of podcasts I listen to).

(of course, there are mattresses that cost several thousands of dollars which may or may not be substantially different from those mentioned)

For 8ish days I'd also just consider getting a blowup, much easier to get rid of/donate afterwards, or keep for occasional guests. Though as a software dev maybe those temporary costs and inconveniences become pretty trivial.

u/Dehno34 · 1 pointr/personalfinance

My wife and I bought this mattress and this bedframe in January and we love it. You can be in a nice bed for a few hundred bucks.
You can't afford anything fancy that you think you need, and a bed is not an emergency.

u/Dark_Shroud · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace

Same here, I recommend them to people all the time.

Their Smart Base alone is worth it and save a good amount of money of the decades that they'll last. Just not having to purchase or deal with a box spring.

u/jellytin8 · 3 pointsr/AirBnB

My husband and I got this one for our Airbnb:

We get many compliments on how comfy it is. Can't speak for lifespan, but it's been used for about 2.5 years, is still doing great, and is a reasonable price.

u/TheThunderbird · 6 pointsr/malelivingspace

Thanks! I'm an engineer, so my choices were also driven by practicality.

For example, that couch also rearranges into the exact size for a [queen sized mattress]( Signature Sleep Contour 8-Inch Mattress) to lay on top except for one missing corner, which is exactly the height of the coffee table. I can also fit a queen sized bed where the bar stools go. When my sister and her friend visited, they each got their own queen bed. One of those beds is stored in the closet.

u/femalenerdish · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

I think you could rotate the bed. Put the head of the bed at the window and push it to one of the walls. Either 1. push it to the left wall and put the desk between the end of the bed and the dresser along the wall, or 2. push it to the right wall and put the desk at the foot of the bed, like this.

If you can, I would also get a taller bed frame so you can store more underneath it. I just got this one. The quality is great and there is SO MUCH storage underneath. There's also cheaper, but still well reviewed options, like this one.

u/vapeducator · 1 pointr/pics

Here's a similar 12" thick pillow top mattress and a steel frame, both with free prime shipping:

Extemely strong steel bedframe that eliminates a box spring and fits storage boxes underneath:

u/Not_A_Red_Stapler · 1 pointr/Mattress

I found another one that's closer to your ideal price of $300 ($289 for a queen).

That said the $200 one will probably do you better since you presumably need money for a frame of some sort as well (and a mattress pad and sheets get the idea).

u/three_rivers · 2 pointsr/getting_over_it

Thinking about this, if your budget is $200, here's a 12" foam of the same brand you posted for under $200. Really good reviews, I think this would be hard to beat comfort wise:

u/ricemouse · 1 pointr/mazda3

I've done something similar with this (twin folding mattress):
What I suggest is getting a more narrow mattress, so you can keep more of your things in the same place (instead of on top of the mattress). You could also get by with only moving one of the seats forward (with something narrow). This particular one is a bit long, but you can jam it in there. You'll definitely want to look at blacking out the windows as well (maybe use black posterboard.

It can get a bit annoying moving everything around daily converting from camper to car, so smaller stuff is probably better.

u/luke276429 · 1 pointr/Frugal

Here's a $400 that I've had recommended as well. Also has excellent reviews on Amazon.

u/Megacannon88 · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace

I bought a Tuft & Needle queen a couple months ago with a folding, metal bed frame. The mattress was only $600 and the frame about $100. It's easily the best best mattress I've ever slept on. No more sore upper back. The bed frame isn't particularly stylish though.

EDIT: frame:

u/travinavan · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

If I were doing a 5 day build, I'd skip insulation. I was in a van this summer that I had insulated with polyiso, and when it was cold outside, it was cold inside the van, and when it was hot outside, it was super hot inside the van. I never got my electrical hooked up either, so I'd skip that too. Bought a 50,000 mAh battery bank. Never really used it. I did use a long 12v extension with a splitter to charge my phone, run a fan, etc.

I'd probably put down subfloor, that's cheapish and a one day project.

For the bed, I bought this frame for $60 and this memory foam mattress, but you could probably get a cheaper twin mattress. The nice thing about the bed frame is that you can store plenty of stuff underneath it in storage totes.

u/Dinosaurs_dont_real · 2 pointsr/centerleftpolitics

I've really enjoyed my Tuft & Needle mattress. It's kept its shape (no sagging in the middle or anything) and is very comfortable for me. It's around $600 before tax for a queen size. Link:

On the lower end I've personally heard good reviews from people about the Zinus Green Tea Mattress and the Casper Sleep Essentials mattress, which both can be shipped for <$500. Zinus in particular has Amazon Prime shipping to minimize time spent sleeping on the floor.

For a little bit more I've also heard that the Purple mattresses are super comfy, despite their really stupid, pandering advertising campaigns.

u/RealNotFake · 4 pointsr/Fitness

Getting proper sleep is vital during your rest periods for you muscles to rebuild. Don't have loads of cash? Then buy one of these bad boys and be done with it. That's the mattress I sleep on and I can vouch for the ridiculously good value. Once you go memory foam you won't go back. These are basically the same exact thing as tempurpedic but super cheap.

u/boooooyouwhore · 5 pointsr/breakingmom

Yay! I love when things like this happen. It seems small but it's not, that's your space! Separate, adult space for you.

This sounds a lot like the first house my husband and I rented together. Not really a bungalow but it was built in 1903 and of course had tiny closets so all our clothes were in a weird tiny bedroom down the hall and our bedroom was basically a mattress on the floor (also couldn't fit the box spring upstairs).

An idea, we got this for the bed:

Cheaper than a real giant bed and it folds so once you do get one you can store it!

This doesn't look sturdy at all.

The thin slats and the hollow steel frame won't survive long, especially with heavier people. Also, while the slats are interchangeable, the frame can't be repaired if it bends.

The reviews are not very flattering either, mostly from people complaining that you can't have sex on it or it breaks.

Edit: The same brand has the Zinus 14 Inch Elite SmartBase Mattress Foundation, for Big & Tall, Extra Strong Support, Platform Bed Frame which looks to be pretty durable. Have to buy a mattress separately though.

u/ChucklesManson · 1 pointr/phoenix

I have purchased two of these mattresses a year ago, and I'm happy with them. They are medium firmness and don't smell like chemicals or anything. Amazon delivers them to your door. One of them has a foam topper on it but they are comfortable without.

Not only is memory foam hot, but the porous structure is a magnet for dust, mold spores, trapping sweat, bacteria, and if you have pets, dander and mites.

[I bought this mattress for my son (currently $190).] (
If I could do it again, [I would purchase this platform (currently $82).] ( Or make your own.

For less than $272, you'd have a pretty good setup for an apartment.

Amazon recommends purchasing this bed frame. It's what I have, and it fits the mattress perfectly.

I bought this thing as a frame for my memory foam mattress, and it supports me(300lbs) and the mattress just fine, I totally recommend it as a frame for anyone who's looking. I can throw myself on it and it doesn't even budge.

what i use honestly one of the best beds I've ever slept in

I guarantee Casper is better, but this is 1/4 the price

Me and the girlfriend got a king size of this off Amazon and love it.

Paid less than $400 as it was on sale.

Check out some of the competition as the mattress industry is incredibly corrupt and there are huge margins some smaller companies are cutting.

Folding mattress and storage case - is quite nice.

I had a mattress shipped using Amazon Prime. It came in a box that would easily fit in a standard sedan.

Of course once you opened the box it inflated nearly instantly to the actual size.

We bought this one a little over a year ago and LOVE it. It's firm, doesn't sleep hot, and with Prime delivered right to our door.

It's so great. It's the Signature Sleep 8-inch Queen Contour Mattress, for $249.99, Amazon Prime eligible. We love our mattress so much. We get so sad when we don't get to sleep in it.

Zinius on Amazon. Best mattress I’ve ever had and it cost $275 for a Queen.

This is the one that I just bought a couple months ago. I use a plastic drawer set next to it to contain all the makeup though.

I bought mine in black, and it was shipped by amazon at the time, so it didn't have the ridiculous shipping cost, but it looks like the other two colors are still shipped by amazon.

If you're looking for something with more storage in it by default, this is one that I was also considering, that I've also seen some of the ladies on this sub with.

I swear by this mattress, super cheap super comfy:

I've seriously never found a "normal" priced mattress that I liked.

u/johnfoster8 · 10 pointsr/sex

I got this

It's pretty amazing for the price and there's only a few bolts to even squeak. The bed it replaced had like 50 bolts and screws and drove me insane.
