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.

Furniture


  • 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: https://www.amazon.com/Immuson-Removable-Packing-Different-Stickers/dp/B07DQDSX9H/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1539805227&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=moving+stickers&psc=1
  • 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.

    Utilities/Bills


    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).

Apologies for not posting sooner. I was sort of waiting for the Cicero deck to arrive, which it did on Monday. I like it a lot better than the Regardie deck on many levels. I don't think there are too many boobs ;)

Lingering things from Lesson 1, I did finally start a dream journal, but I know I could be better at it than I am so far.

On to Lesson 2's questions:

On question 1, I have a double cubical altar made from two of these, but it takes up a lot of space so more often than not, I find myself leaving it in the East and working in the center of my temple space. I have a robe, but don't usually wear it unless I'm working a "bigger" ritual than just daily practice. It was made for and used with the rituals from the Cicero Self-Initiation book, primarily.

I do not yet have a set of tools for this specific work and I plan to be making the tools as described in MM. I have obtained a disk and paints for my pentacle, so I'll be getting to that in the next week or so. The Moon is favorable for that, having just passed through New. When I do work with the altar in the center for the daily practice, I've only had on it my journal, Tarot cards and a pen. Of late the altar has sat in the East not only because of space constraints, but also because I currently have an Enochian Chess board set up on it.


Regarding question 2, I have not yet started with the Solar adorations with any regularity, but thank you so much for your summary of them. From that I have written a cheat-sheet and will hopefully get to doing them more regularly. I have often thought about them even if I haven't been doing them yet. In my regular daily practice developed before starting to read MM, I have a "first thing in the morning" ritual and a "last thing at night" ritual, so the Solar adoration parts ought to slot in with those neatly.


Question 3 about the LBRP, I'd written this part for question 1, but will move it here: I've been practicing the LBRP for over a year now and in the context of this working I have only used my finger. In past working, I have tried a variety of tools including a very sharp dagger which belongs to a member of one of my groups, but I only use that when working the LBRP in their space when it is my turn to open/run the ritual. OK, that's what I had above, and now I'll add that even though I have been working with this ritual for quite some time, I still find my visualizations weak and my vibratory results quite variable. I have had a few experiences, usually when working this "for" others, where I could tell the ritual as a whoe was quite effective. When I work alone, though, I have a much harder time judging the effectiveness overall and can only pick out things like, "wow, Auriel was really present there."


For question 4's topic of the Tree of Life, this again is something which I have been aware of and doing cursory study of for a couple years. I have Lon Milo duQuette's Chicken Qabalah and love it dearly. One of my magickal groups has done semi-regular pathworkings, and certainly the Cicero Self-Initiation includes a lot of pathworking also. I can draw the Tree from memory and name all of the Sephirah, but still as yet cannot letter all the Paths. I can put the Tarot trumps on about half of them (mostly the lower half and that's due to the work I've done w/ the Self-Initiation book).


Regarding question 5 and the Tarot, I have a lot of Tarot decks and have been using them to lesser or greater depths for over 30 years. I still don't feel like I "know" any of them all that well, mostly because it's been a lot of "lesser depths" until the past few years or so. Daily practice makes such a huge difference, as well as trusting first impressions rather than saying, "no, that can't be right," and then looking up in a book what I was "supposed" to get. That Cicero deck is really intriguing and I've barely scratched the surface of working with it. We'll see how I feel about it in another week or two. I've switched over to using it for my daily Tarot Contemplation Ritual, but that's only been a day or two. It's also kind of a pain to want to use the whole deck for reading versus using only the Majors for the TCR, and I haven't yet made a bag for it, so we still have a lot of setting in to do, that deck and I.


Question 6 and the format has me a bit stymied. I was very happy to see that you went from, "I wanted to put chapters 1 and 2 into the same post," to "Chapter 2 will be split up into 2 posts." DMK pitches MM as a "one lesson a month" sort of deal, and I can see value in going more slowly than that as long as I keep to a daily practice. I actually haven't even cracked MM open in the past week, but have kept up my daily journals (dream, ritual, general). I know I could be doing more to contribute, so I'll try to step up my commenting, maybe make it a daily practice ;)

It just occurred to me that when we get to making tools, it could be good to break the tool-construction topics out into a separate thread from the main lesson material. Maybe talk a little bit about it in the main lesson topic, but then also point to the tool-specific topic for going into more detail on the actual practicalities of construction. I'll need to go back and re-read what I've read of Lesson 3 to really know if that's a good idea or not, though.


As far as question 7 goes, I don't think I have much more to add at this point, other than I do feel like I ought to be doing more to contribute to the sub. I'm not yet sure how, though.

Thank you again!

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

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Q7EPSHI/

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)

https://www.amazon.com/Sleep-Master-Memory-Topper-Queen/dp/B00FJNQBJ2/

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

https://www.amazon.com/Zinus-SmartBase-Foundation-Replacement-Noise-Free/dp/B017YETH8K/

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:

https://www.amazon.com/TRU-Lite-Bedding-Slip-Mattress/dp/B01AS3HADS

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:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A2G9VFM/

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

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NLNDU00

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/SirBlueHerbz · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I love it!!! The only turn off for me is that you have tj tighten the arms ever 3ish months or they'll fall of or break, but if you just do it when they get wobbly you'll be fine. The other problem I had was that it came in different parts and you had to assemble it and mine did not come with instructions and thanks to the super generic name, I couldn't find any online and I just winged it and I build it fine. It's pretty self explanatory to assemble but takes a little thinking. Other that the tightening of the arms every once in a while and the missing instructions, it's a great chair.The material is quality fake leather and it's pretty cushy, idk if it's as good as a drxracer but it's very nice for the price and I really like the extendable footrest and the ability to put the chair way back, lay back on it and put your feet out on the rest. I would totally recommend it for the price of 99.00 USD + shipping (not amazon prime)
here's the link: New Gaming Chair High-back Computer Chair Ergonomic Design Racing Chair https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HNTLIM4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_wX-Mzb8HXZM96

u/Coffinspired · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

Unfortunately, I'm no expert, past knowing what features you should look for. I know about ergo chairs, but I don't know a bunch of particular models.

I also know these chairs suck.

For $150-200? I do have personal experience with the Alera Elusion Multifunction. Solid chair for the price. We've had one here at the house for about 2-2.5 years, sat in daily, it's still good as new. It's a popular "cheap" office ergo chair to try, its often known as the "poor man's Aeron".

Me and the GF both find it very comfortable and nice enough looking. I have the High-Back and I'm 6'2" ~175lbs. She's 5'8" and don't you dare haha. Kidding, I don't know her exact weight, she's whatever normal weight that is for that height...130-135lbs? I don't know exactly.

It comes in a mid or high back, both mesh. Fully adjustable, has 95% of the adjustments you'll find on $400+ chairs.

The downside is that it's a bit "loose" in its tolerances, so slightly rickety when you wheel around. It's fine when you're just sitting in it. Also one or two of the covers that snap over the big metal/sharper parts on the frame are just plastic - they're fine, just not as elegant as really expensive chairs. But, that's the trade-off. Both of those "downsides" aren't exclusive to it over other cheaper chairs - including the cheaper "racing chairs".

https://www.gamingscan.com/alera-elusion-review/

https://www.amazon.com/Alera-ALEEL41ME10B-Elusion-High-Back-Multifunction/dp/B0049UCECE

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Alera-Elusion-Series-Mesh-Mid-Back-Multifunction-Office-Chair-Black/14915766

It's not the end-all-be-all or the only option in that price range - so maybe dig around and compare a few. But, I've been happy with it.

Regardless, no matter what chair you buy (go try some out!), here's some things to look out for:

  • Floating/adjustable fore/aft locking seat-pan (important)

  • Adjustable/locking backrest/lumbar (no a stupid pillow on a racing chair doesn't count as "adjustable lumbar support")

  • Adjustable/removable armrests - at minimum up/down and "wide/narrow". (That's all the Alera has)

  • Open and locking recline/"rocking"

  • You want the recline to be two separate levers. One that only tilts the backrest (like a car) and one that makes the entire chair tip back as a whole (to angle your legs up)...

  • Teardrop seat cushions are nice, I don't know if they're 100% necessary, but I like them. Good for circulation where your legs would hang on the edge, while being able to have your chair high enough.

  • Obviously it needs to go up/down and be a comfy boi.

    It'd be ideal to go test-drive some chairs to get an idea of what you like. If you have any office furniture liquidators around you, they're a great place to check out used Herman Miller level chairs that can be had for @/under $400 if you're lucky. If not that, just the usual places are good...

    Good luck! :)
u/Metalsand · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Seriously. 95% of gamer chairs are abysmal, and focus on aesthetics. Case in point - the padding is always thick on the back. This is important on an automobile where the acceleration pushes you back a bit, but a normal sitting posture means that your spine is pushing onto your rear primarily, even when you lean back. In terms of surface area for high-back chairs which this is, 2/3rds of it is the back - meaning that even if a chair has 50% of the padding that a gaming chair does, if they distribute 40% to the seat and 10% to the back, they're still more effective than their highly padded counterpart. Not to mention, a gaming chair STILL has a giant branding markup after the difference in material cost, meaning you're still paying a premium even after wasted material and design time is spent.

If you ever want a chair that focuses on function rather than form, always look for chairs that have far more attention paid to the seat. If you want a good deal as well as a good chair, the mesh backed ones are actually pretty fantastic - my favorite chair is the Aleera Elusion which only costs $166. I've used it daily for the past 3-4 years, and the armrests are the only part that are showing wear and tear (more my fault than the chair though, since when adjusting from sitting to cross-legged, I put my entire body weight on them).

If you want a durable, office standard chair, Steelcase makes a line of high durability, high comfort seating. I can't speak much for them, except that where I work is in love with Steelcase.

If you don't have money but still want a good chair that is also cheap, hunt them on Craigslist. It's frequent that when an office can't sell the previous set of chairs to a wholesaler, they just let people take them home (since they'd otherwise be tossed). Often, there's nothing wrong with the chairs if they bought office-grade durability, and you can get absurdly lucky and get stuff from a $300 chair for $20, or even a $1000+ executive chair for only $50.

All of these are options I would consider before a "gaming chair". They are the MacOS of chair, in that they aren't bad and they do have good qualities, but the majority of their market buys them because they don't know any better, not because they're actually going to take advantage of said qualities.

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:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012H0JTMA/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1

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:

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.

https://www.amazon.com/Signature-Sleep-Independently-CertiPUR-US-Certified/dp/B004LQ1RJ2/ref=sr_1_1/155-2136574-5011300?ie=UTF8&qid=1485834529&sr=8-1&keywords=bed+mattress

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/patboy19 · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Forgive me for the terrible formatting but I'm writing this in notes for easy copy and paste. I'm moving soon and I'm like 90% sure this will be the layout of the apartment I stay in.

I have a rough idea how I want things but I'd like some feedback and a forum to bounce ideas off. Ok so as I stated above I want it to have a SUBTLE cyberpunk feel think along the lines of:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Cyberpunk/comments/48p40k/apartment/?ref=search_posts&st=J3CV1TAX&sh=7aa1f669

Without all the clutter obviously. I want to have a simple futon where the couch is located and the tv exactly where it is in the render. to the left of the futon I want a corner desk such as:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001FB5LE8/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I3LMFRI393MQQT&colid=2Z9WWCIKD2PXQ

Also I should point out what got me interested in a sort of cyverpunkish is that I have a small purple neon sign that I acquired while I was living in Japan that I think would look pretty neat as some nighttime ambient lighting. I still don't know where I'd put it.

Ok so for the area where the bed is located (I plan on using the futon as my bed) I plan on putting my homelab server equipment. I'm a net admin by trade so it something I definitely plan to build. Anything else you guys could think of to help? Some nice dressers, nightstands, coffee tables and such that would fit the aesthetic I'm going for? Is my plan terrible and can you think of a better way to design the place? I'm not extremely anal about this whole thing I just wanna be comfy in my place especially since it'll be the first time I'm going to live alone.

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/smile_e_face · 1 pointr/buildapc

This one is definitely out of your price range, but I have seen it go for $150 on sale. It's stupidly comfortable, breathable (no back sweat), and supportive without being too hardcore. It's a great chair for us big and tall folks, because the mesh back goes up all the way to provide support to your spine and your head. The only reasons I replaced it with my DXRacer are that it (a) doesn't have adjustable arms and (b) needs just a little more lumbar support. But if you aren't three inches from your monitor like I am (bad eyes) that latter probably won't be a problem, and the arms only needed to be wider, not higher, to suit my shoulders. I used it for over three years, and it still worked as well as the first day without any maintenance, other than the occasional WD-40. Now that it belongs to my dad, he won't trade it for anything.

I've also heard good things about this chair from a friend, but I haven't tried it myself. It seems to suit his scrawny self perfectly, though.

And while I understand that budgets are a reality we all have to deal with, I'd recommend splurging a little on a quality desk chair. Your back and shoulders will thank you in the long run, particularly as you get older. I'm only 26, and I've already noticed a definite change in how much bad posture my body is willing to put up with.

Get a mesh back OFFICE chair off of amazon. 150$.

http://www.amazon.com/Lorell-Executive-High-Back-Chair-Fabric/dp/B000Q5XTE8

This is the exact one I have. Puts together in 5 minutes even if you are an idiot. Amazingly comfortable and resilient. Good on your back and butt.

Don't waste money on some other type of chair. The only thing BETTER that you can get is something like an Aeron..but those are anywhere from 700-1500$.

Take it from the people WHO WORK IN THEM...they work.

And for that matter...dont buy anything sponsored by pro gamers.

-Want a good headset for cheap? Get a midrange sennheiser and a modmic. want something a bit better? Get a vmoda m100 crossfade with a vmoda boom mic cable.

-Dont bother with gsync monitors, they wont be around that long. There are software alternatives that are maturing quite well, and by the time you REALLY need that 144hz monitor...you wont need gsync.

-Want louder better sound? for low price get a fiio kilimanjaro 2 e11k. Want one for more expensive? get a good amp/dac, check Head-Fi(website).

-Want a good keyboard and mouse? Dont buy razer.

I use a Roccat MK pro keyboard, after going through three razer mech keyboards...they are just shit. I would recommend a Das Keyboard, But to be honest, I like the function's that gamer keyboards allow, Das doesnt really have that option. Also look up the different switch types, the actuation pressure makes a big difference.....

Good mouse? Get a Steelseries or a Zowie or a good logitech mouse(g502 or so)

-good webcam? get an actual video camera. hook it up to your computer...do research.

I repeat, the Pros get PAID to use the things they do....You do not. Do not constrain yourself to cheaply built things.

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 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004F03L98 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 https://github.com/GothenburgBitFactory/taskwarrior for tasks, and have finally transitioned pretty much all my finances to the double-entry beancount leveraging https://github.com/beancount/fava (after trying the earlier ledger/hledger tools).

Hi! Ergo nerd chiming in because it doesn't seem like a lot the people in this thread know what they're talking about. I've researched chairs extensively and the plain, but not so simple answer is - it depends. The two most important however are your height, and budget.

There's no one chair fit all, so really the best thing you can do for yourself is get a chair with as many adjustments as possible so you can sort of mold it around your body. A lot of chairs don't come like this out of the box, and usually the one's that do will break your wallet without any remorse.

Anyway, I'm 5'6", and poor, so I currently use this chair.

This is by far the best chair at the low end you can get, and I sit in it comfortably for 8-10 hours a day.

Also this nerd on youtube seems to know what he's talking about and has a few videos that give you the quick know how on what you should be looking for.

This article is really good for reference too!

Do yourself a favor and get decent lumbar support. Your body will thank you.

And as a side note. The chair I recommended is 1000x better than the Markus in every way possible.

https://www.amazon.com/Futon-Furniture-Traditional-Japanese-Mattresses/dp/B003VQNM2I/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1518653551&sr=8-3&keywords=shikibuton

I had one of these for a while, and I like it a lot. My floor is bare concrete, though, so I have to layer it up with a few thicker blankets. Would probably also work to get two if you were in the same situation. It's a firmer, more rigid mattress. I like the rigidity of it. You don't sink into it at all, so you end up laying very flat. That was a big improvmeent over my last mattress, which was wearing out and getting a dip in the middle. I wouldn't mind it being softer, but that often comes at the expense of losing the rigidity, so there's a trade off, and I'm pretty content with it where it is. I also love to take it camping. It's not good enough on its own for concrete, but no dirt and maybe some grass? Perfect. I love it.

They do take a little bit of care, though. You have to pick it up at least a couple times a week to let the under side and the floor under it air out to prevent mold. Folding it up helps stretch and fluff the fibers back out to keep it comfrotable. Some recommend taking it out and beating it occasionally to fluff it and get dead skin cells out, but I haven't done that. You do definitely want to fold it up at least regularly. After a few days, it gets noticeably harder.

However, now that it's thoroughly tested and approved, I'm planning to upgrade to a similar one. http://www.tatamiroom.com/cgi-local/catalog.pl?category=PLATFORM_BEDS-40#30 Here's a place I can get a fairly cheap king size one that's also thicker than the one from Amazon. I'm planning to upgrade the size and build a bed frame for it. Something with slats to let it get some airflow underneath it and help stave off mold. I'd really like to design something multipurpose, especially for if the mattress is folded and stored, but I haven't been able to come up with anything I like yet, so I might go for a simple platform with storage underneath.

u/SpockolateChips · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I bought this one on amazon about a year ago and its pretty nice. "Walker Edison Soreno 3-Piece Corner Desk, Black with Black Glass" Its obviously glass and difficult to clean, i would recommend coasters if you buy it. But the price is good and its on sale right now. https://www.amazon.com/Walker-Edison-Soreno-3-Piece-Corner/dp/B001FB5LE8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1511995783&sr=8-4&keywords=desk

Personally if I could do it all over again I would have saved for a none L shaped regular or standing desk like Uplift. They are more durable, easier to clean, easier to move, and provides more long term space where you can actually sit at it and see everything using a keyboard without turning your chair to look at your other monitors. I have to move my chair or my neck to look at my third monitor so dont love it. But for the price I am extremely happy and will save for a really nice desk when I move into my house early next year.

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've been sleeping on this mat from Amazon since I moved into my new place 4 months ago and haven't bothered getting a 'real' bed. I'm actually planning on getting the same one in the full size! This one's just a single padded cushion that you can fold up. It's about 4 inches thick. I have it on a hardwood floor with a yoga mat underneath so it doesn't slide around.

I believe most people add additional pads to it, but I think it's perfectly comfortable on it's own. I like firm-ish mattresses, and it's a lot more comfortable than I had expected. Even when I first got it, I didn't have any trouble falling asleep on it. It took a few nights to get used to, but after that I've never had any back pain. I've read that using futon mattresses are much better for your back, too.

Regular mattresses feel almost too cushion-y for me now... I'm in love with my futon. I especially enjoy the fact that I can fold it up and take it anywhere without needing someone with a truck to move it for me.

I have the 48"x31" bekant and love it. It's a sturdy, slim, and the beveled edges don't kill your arms if you rest on it. Super easy to put together, especially considering its from Ikea.

https://imgur.com/a/uJWnK

I've since upgraded to 3x27" monitors and love the setup. I have mine a little different, with the third almost 90 degrees to my left, but that's mostly just for music/soccer in the background.

I considered making my own L desk from Ikea with linnmon table tops (woulda been like $70 or something ridiculously cheap) but after being able to see/feel the tops, I was put off. They're rather thick with sharpish edges and I didn't feel it would be nice in the long run. More like a kitchen table than a desk if anything.

I considered this guy as well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009YPRRZ8/

Amazon.

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. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CT37L0/ref=oss_product

u/Pyrokills · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

I honestly can't think of a reason to spend so little on a computer chair, unless you're a casual computer user and are sitting at it for at most 3-4 hours a day. Even then you should be ponying up the cash for something with adjustable back support if you don't want back issues.
I sit at my desk on average 8 hours a day and the cheap $200-$300 chairs from office depot etc last me at most 3 years but usually 2 before falling apart. I then spend another $200-$300 and at that point I pretty much could've bought the Rolls Royce of chairs. So if you sit for as long as I do or longer, just take the hit and buy a solid, expensive chair.

However I understand not everyone can afford that even if they try and budget for it. There are pretty nice chairs (from what I've read) in the $400 range that aren't junk gaming chairs. Here's a list I've found but keep in mind I have never owned any of these but have just heard good things about them.

Lorell Executive

Alera Elusion

ErgoChair

For the last one, the Ergo Chair. I've heard both great things about the chair but negative things about the company itself. The Chair/Company was kickstarted/crowdfunded and some reddit users complained of shady practices, but others got their chairs and loved it so take with that what you will. And as others have said, you can get the herman miller chairs, steelcase etc etc for the cheap and in good condition on craigslist and ebay etc. Companies sell them all the time.

u/lukewarmandtoasty · 2 pointsr/SSBM

I tried out a LOT of chairs when I got into music production a decade ago. I've been using this since 2012 and never looked back. I'm 6'1" so I like a high back but there are normal back models too. I also took the armrests off to encourage better posture. There are a couple reviews talking about how the foam is too thin...they must be like 300 pounds or something because my brother's ~225 and he loves it too. Literally my only gripe is that after about 2 years of use it started getting a little rickety when I shift positions.

I also own this from the same company, and it's also great, but got even ricketier within a year and the fabric's not quite as nice. Surprisingly, the back cushion doesn't make nearly as much of a difference as I would've expected.

u/RotonSan · 1 pointr/buildapc

Since you play long session, its better you buy the most comfortable one and you will not feel back pain. I recommend mesh back chair. If you want comfort, stylish design without budget limitation I would recommend Ergohuman ME7ERG-W09-01W09-01 Black Mesh Hi Swivel chair from [Amazon] (http://www.amazon.com/Ergohuman-ME7ERG-W09-01W09-01-Black-Swivel-chair/dp/B002LK1YNO). I would say the best of the best for long term sitting. Since you have budget limitation try this [Aeron chair] (http://www.ebay.co.uk/bhp/herman-miller-aeron-chair). You can find a decent chair from [here as well] (http://www.artistsupplysource.com/category/50260/furniture-for-artists/?page=2). Just make sure you can sit in it all the way back, with your lower back fully supported.

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

This desk is what I have. It's a bit of a process putting it together, but when it's done it looks super nice and is a very good size. I can easily fit my bookshelf speakers, 2 monitors, and my tower (if I wanted) on one side of the 'L'. The other side just tends to get cluttered with stacks of Magic The Gathering cards :)

u/RocketHops · 2 pointsr/OverwatchUniversity

Can't really speak to low priced chairs but something like this would probably be best.

Note that the armrests fold back instead of adjusting down, meaning you won't have to worry about them bumping into the bottom of your desk. I've also found mesh office chairs tend to have better back support than cushioned ones, unless you're getting one with an adjustable back support cushion, like you see on all the DxRacer gaming chairs.

I can't really help with the mattress, but i have this desk in my tiny bedroom. I use the short section for my computer, and the long section has a 32" tv on it, and all my makeup and junk on the corner section.

I put it together by myself. It came with an Allen wrench, but I used an electric screwdriver with the attachment and it made things go a lot faster. It was super easy, but the glass pieces were surprisingly heavy. It took me maybe an hour, including unpacking all the pieces.

I think they make this desk in different finishes and surfaces too if you're not keen on the glass. But it looks classy as fuck, is super sturdy, and I would highly recommend it.

EDIT: the box it came in was maybe a bit larger than a crib mattress

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.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
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.

u/makanaj · 2 pointsr/OfficeChairs

I don't have experience with that chair in particular, but if you're looking to save some money I would recommend this chair: https://www.amazon.com/Homall-Computer-Executive-Ergonomic-Adjustable/dp/B01MRZ02TL/
I bought it last October and it's served me very well. The only issue I had was resolved by the customer service, which has replaced the hydraulic lift for me when it started dying last month (that's happened on every chair I order online).
I personally don't like arm rests, so if you depend on arm rests and being able to adjust them, that would be the main down side of this chair compared to the one you linked. I'm 6'2" and 240 pounds and this chair holds me very well

hope that helps!

u/djyoshmo · 1 pointr/OfficeChairs

Secretlab's Titan series is supposed to be better than even many of the ergonomic mesh options out there. At $400 (USD I presume?) you can get a LOT of chair, and you can even start looking into the Herman Miller options.


I just picked up this chair from amazon, and even at the 120 I spent on black friday it's a great buy. Upgrading from a terribad years old leather chair to this baby was a revelation. And if you want a headrest, you can always buy one for it aftermarket for like 20 bucks.


Looking at the chairs you posted, I would honestly not bother spending so much money on something that's not necessarily name brand. You can get something of similar quality for 200 USD less (the chair I mentioned is very highly rated everywhere I've looked)--if you're trying to spend your full budget, I'd seriously look into Herman Miller and see if you can find any good deals/sales. Patience is going to be key when it comes to buying a decent chair--the prices can fluctuate anywhere from 30 to hundreds of dollars on a whim.


Good luck!

I brought this memory foam mattress from Amazon:

  • Sleep Innovations 12-Inch SureTemp Memory Foam Mattress
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CT37L0

    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)
    http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90139941/

    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 (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S39849855/) with the most expensive bed slats Ikea carries ($150 for queen so not that bad, http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60125969/) -- 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.

If you can't find a Herman Miller Aeron 2nd hand I would recommend this Lorell executive chair from [Amazon] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0074GX2YE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) with the extra [headrest] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P85C6OU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I did a ton of research on best bang for the buck chairs at the beginning of med school and after looking through tons of reviews, this one seemed to have the most people who were satisfied years after purchase while fitting within my sub-200 budget.

I've sat it in everyday studying for >8 hours for almost 2 years now and it's still as comfortable as day 1. The seat and arm cushions haven't worn down at all. The mesh backing has stayed taut and is very breathable. The headrest is super comfortable. The adjustments are solid and it has a great recline. Set up is easy too. Obviously this is no Aeron but if you don't want to go 2nd hand, I think this is a fantastic option.

I'm single, but let me tell you about my Heaven Bed. You might not find a more comfy option. I bought a shikifuton from Amazon and repurposed a 3" full size memory foam pad. The shikifuton is only wide enough for one person, so you would need to get 2 (it saves space over air mattresses). The luxurious part is taking the cheaper 3" memory foam, using a box cutter to slice it in half, double stack it... now you have a perfectly fitted 6" of memory foam.

It's more comfortable than my bed and is worth the price. The foam can be squished down to very little.

I recommend checking out the Japanese shikibutons. I had one for about a year and it worked out great for my small bedroom. There are models that can fold up into a couch when coupled with a special frame. There are ones you have to roll up every day to keep it from flattening too much.

I used a fake bamboo picnic mat to keep the bottom of the buton clean. It ran me about $80 US but well worth the money. I recommend, if say you buy a twin size, to buy the next size up for the fitted sheet. It will help keep the sheet from undoing itself.

I hope this helps! https://www.amazon.com/Futon-Furniture-Traditional-Japanese-Mattresses/dp/B003VQNM2I/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1505107924&sr=8-2&keywords=shikibuton

Im currently using This Desk And it works fine, except for 1 issue. I can only fit 2 of my 24" monitors on it currently. I could put on a 3rd but the way the desk is built you kinda have to sit farther to the left/right of the desk depending which way you face so 1 monitor is alittle to far away for it to be a comfortable fit. I hope I explained it well haha its in a kinda of awkward position.

u/KataLight · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Well it depends, do you just want a good starter desk or something you can use for a good length of time without feeling like you have to get another one?Personally I have a rather small desk I thought I would like but have come to realise leaves me wishing for more space for my mouse, keyboard and assorted desk decorations (a few figures mainly). An L shape desk can be great for this https://www.amazon.com/Walker-Edison-Soreno-3-Piece-Corner/dp/B001FB5LE8/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1494868308&sr=8-6&keywords=desk

There's a few more options you can find on amazon just by searching desk. I hope this was helpful.

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/tr1ppn · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Sooo many things. Power strips, extension cords, HDMI/AV cables are all "have some extra" because, well, you can never have too many, or know where you will need them.

Grill? You need a grill. End of story.

You said you were looking for an L-Shaped desk. I have this but black with clear glass. It's a bit small, but I really like it. With some mounts for screens to give more desk space (kb/mouse doesn't fit on the tray) it's nice. It cost me like $80, so it wasn't a huge deal. Good buy.

Also, ample trash cans, especially one in the bathroom with a lid for any lady friends you might have. An absolute must. Spare toothbrush isn't a bad idea either :P

u/Neverlife · 1 pointr/buildapc

I was in the market for a chair about 6 months ago and it seemed to me like the options were;

  1. Find something on craigslist

  2. Buy something from a random Office Depot or Target or whatever

  3. Pay $300+ for a nice chair

  4. Buy this chair on Amazon (Edit: It was $150 when I bought it.. I swear)

    I went with #4. It's not a phenomenal chair, but it's pretty good. I've been using it for 6 months with little issue, it's comfy, it stays cool, it has a bunch of settings so you can tweak it to fit how you sit. I give it a solid 7/10.

So I actually recently bought this chair,

For the price it's actually pretty fair it is a little squeaky and the pillow wasn't like the perfect shape it had a corner messed up, but sitting in it for roughly 30hrs so far has been great! Feel like I got a good value

I have just recently started collecting Vinyl. I found the perfect solution for vinyl storage on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O1FROO/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's cheap, it prime eligable, and they stack so as your collection grows you can get more. I have to say that my most prized records is a signed copy of Rancid2000. My favorite record to listen to is "under great white norhtern lights" by the white stripes on 180 gram vinyl.

Im not exactly sure how BIFL this is but I actually just bought the Lorell LLR 86200 a few days ago because it was the same brand as the chairs in my office that have lasted a while and gave me a great deal. Based on the Amazon review it has lasted 2-3 years for a reviewer and compares well to the Aeron.

Personally having only sat in it for a few days I can only say so much but it feels really solid and it is very comfortable for me.

u/6x9equals42 · 8 pointsr/buildapc

$100 won't get you very far and I'd probably just grab whatever feels nice at Office Depot. The Alera Elusion at $150 or the Ikea Markus at $200 have good reviews. Nicer chair are pretty buy it for life and will be more comfortable than cheap chairs, so I'd save $300-$400 and get a used Herman Miller or Steelcase. You'll probably spend more overall on cheap chairs that wear out than a nicer chair over its life span.

In lieu of buying a second hand mattress (ew.), if you have Amazon Prime [this] (http://www.amazon.com/Signature-Sleep-Contour-Inch-Mattress/dp/B004LQ1RJ2/ref=sr_1_1?s=furniture&ie=UTF8&qid=1452793388&sr=1-1&keywords=mattress) is a pretty darn good mattress for the price. We have a king, and I have honestly had the best sleep of my life on it.

u/FERRISBUELLER2000 · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

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.

I got this desk last year and am currently using it:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00166HC9E/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I generally like it; it's solid, wasn't too tricky to assemble, and fits well in a corner. My only gripe is that I am not able to install a triple-monitor mount that grips the desk, but honestly that's an issue with glass-topped desks in general, not just this model. All in all, I am pretty happy with this desk.

I would reccomend an L-shaped desk. They're really great for that kind of stuff. IKEA has good desks. I have one that I bought at Office Max for about $100. I can also confidently reccomend this Walker Edison glass desk. It's good quality, and very strong. It doesn't have much storage though.

It depends on how many monitors you have and their sizes, but if it's remotely close to my set up, I have a corner desk that comfortably fits a 27" curved monitor, a 23" monitor, a Wii U, PS4, and an Xbox One.

This is the one I have and it's currently on sale on amazon for like 60% off. It also comes with a little stand to put your tower on if you're in a carpeted rooms for airflow. The tempered glass is also nice and easy to clean/dust.

u/Jakomako · 1 pointr/buildapc

Honestly, your best bet is to go to a store that sells chairs and try them out. You should be able to tell which ones are sturdy enough for you, plus it'll be a lot easier to figure out what's comfortable.

I spend a lot of time in various conference rooms for work, and I was very pleased with this chair: http://www.amazon.com/Lorell-High-Back-Swivel-Chair-x28-1/dp/B0074GX2YE

I don't know how durable it is though because the place that had them had just bought them a few months prior.

u/taylortaudio · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

So I bought this guy on Amazon just a few weeks ago:

New Gaming Chair High-back Computer Chair Ergonomic Design Racing Chair https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HNTLIM4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_AYDKzbJ2EX38K

And it's incredible. It has this built in foot rest that hides away, leans all the way back and all for $100 shipped.

But then my friend was selling some of his old furniture from his setup so he could upgrade, and the Dxracer as well as the longer desk everything's resting on he put up for sale. I already had the chair from Amazon, but the reason I didn't spring for a Dxracer was the price. I was able to get the desk and Dxracer for $200 even. It was the homie hook up for sure, but I'm glad I did. He keeps everything he owns in incredible condition, and the quality and fit and finish is far better than the Amazon knockoff. I just wish it had the pull out foot rest.

Now my gf has a chair to game in, and I get to sit in the dx racer!

Can someone please comment on the following chairs?

I currently use the Staples Torrent, but after spending the past two months in it for more than 12 hours/day studying, I realized that I can't do that anymore. It needs to go. My shoulders and back hunch forward and my thighs start to hurt after a bit as well. It was great in the beginning--granted I never sat this long for such an extended period of time--but now it's just aggravating.

I don't want leather/"leather" anymore. I need ventilation. Mesh only. I wish someone had told me this sooner.

I'm looking at this from Amazon (Lorell LLR86200 or its newer variant (actually, based on the reviews it might be a different model style entirely) the LLR86205. The first chair in particular has a significantly number of positive reviews.

From Office Depot, we have the Realspace Pro Quantum 9000 Series that was recommended previously by a redditor. Lots of reviews on the site, but also much more expensive as it's $279 from them.

From Staples, the Staples branded Hyken which has favorable reviews and the Acadia, but some people have commented about it not being great for sitting too long.

Lastly, I just discovered Madison Seating from a redditor comment, but I have never heard of it nor know why their prices are significantly lower than the competition. For example, the Herman Miller Mirra at $499 or the Leap Steelcase v2 at $575.

I just want something that will not cause me pain anymore.

For the most part, my budget from Amazon is $250 (max). If it's something that costs a little bit more, that'd be OK--it'll eventually go on sale and I can pick it up at the lower price.

Everywhere else (Staples/OD/etc) it's a budget of $150-200 if at all possible.

If it's for one of the higher end chairs (e.g., from Madison Seating), I'd really have to think about it and see if the jump from any of the listed chairs makes a difference.

EDIT: Online review of Madison Seating show that they take used chairs, refurb them, and then sell as new. I'll skip that retailer.

u/Maswasnos · 1 pointr/CasualConversation

I got a queen-sized memory foam mattress from Amazon and I love it. It's a bit lonely since it's just me, but I figure it'll be perfect whenever I get around to finding a girlfriend. I'm hoping that I won't have to get another mattress for a long while.

Here's the link on Amazon if you're curious: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Q7EPSHI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

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. www.sleeplikethedead.com 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.

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.

ikea has clean & simple beds. Easy to put together.

What I'm going to offer might not be ideal to others but with this budget, and avoiding threadripper. I would suggest you buy the best
Gaming PC - Use this for gaming, streaming, and to edit your videos

Replace 2 fans from corsair with ML120 both fans

I would suggest you wait until i7 8700K comes out and only use one build for the time being but if you can't wait here is my suggestion. With this budget you should have 2 builds for streaming, one for solely gaming and the other will handle the other workload. Also make sure to be very aware of how you will deal with storage and how much you potential think you will need for the future.

When you want to spend a few dollars to fix this comprehensively, I highly recommend this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006MIUM20/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_yqv9Bb2VBVG21

It's super solid, sets up and breaks down easily. Really great frame. Also lets you have more under bed storage and lets you get rid of your box spring

u/needathneed · 18 pointsr/happy

Going through the hard times makes the good times that much more sweet :) Good for you!! I recommend a bed frame like this
. I also have a memory foam and it does not need the boxspring.

u/GloriousFireball · 7 pointsr/buildapc

I have this desk which has worked pretty well for me for the better part of the last three or four years. I have three monitors and a set of speakers on mine, so it should be able to fit two monitors pretty easily with room for your other stuff.

u/RouletteZoku · 10 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have a different brand chair (but my guess is they're all made in the same factory). Not a bad price considering free shipping.

This is the specific chair I have.

Here's another example of a clearly similar chair.


It was easy to assemble, is relatively comfortable, tilts/swivels and has adjustable height.

I'm not sure if this specific model can lean back, if it can't then I would say pass, and grab one of the other two chairs I listed since the price is similar, and the definitely can lean back.

u/bsod666rrod · 20 pointsr/buildapc

Totally convenient. Jokes aside, if you are interested in building your own (in relevancy to the DIY factor to this particular sub-reddit), may I point you towards /r/DIY? Also, depending on the materials you want, here is a Glass & Steel L-shaped Desk, and another if you are more into the Traditional look.

If you do look into building your own however, look into some really cool materials such as

  • Bamboo
  • Apple Wood
  • Cherry Wood
  • Re-used wooden pallet?
  • Aluminum?

    Mess around with different stains/paints! And best of luck!

Oh! Haha I was talking about the vault boy bobble head :P but I actually got the desk from amazon! [Here] ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001FB5LE8?pc_redir=1395433866&robot_redir=1), super easy to set up too. I'm in the US.

Amazon is great for finding computer furniture. I am on my third computer desk and the first two I got from Walmart (bad idea). The third one I got from Amazon and it is already much better. Here is a link. I have found, I like glass+metal desks much better than wood ones. On the desk I linked above, I have 3x 28" montiors, 2x keyboards (one for PC and one for Xbox One) and still have room to eat food or sketch things out on paper if needed.

u/truenoise · 3 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

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.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CT37L0/

You can also get wallpaper to mimic that feature wall:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CT37L0/

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.



u/TackleballShootyhoop · 1 pointr/cringepics

I just got this chair a few weeks ago. I didn't want to shell out a lot of money on a chair, but for $65 I am really liking it. It actually looks better in person, too. The picture doesn't really do it justice.

u/Dudewitagun94 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Get a chair with loblar support and good reviews.

I bought the gaming chair Hommal that is one of those race car style chairs with lombar support and neck pillow. Resembles IKEA brand.

It was around 115 bucks.

I have used it for a whole year every day for several hours and I can tell you now that it os by far the best chair ive used for desks / computers etc. And ive been using office chairs in the 100-200 dollar range.

Get something like mine or get a premium one. They seem to be trending but the utillity of them is great. Never has my back felt so good!

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.

u/Life_with_lemonz · 6 pointsr/IKEA

I had a similar bed, but not from ikea. Tbh I really didn’t want to go through buying and rebuilding so instead I took out all the slates. Leaving just the headboard and frame around it. Then I bought one of these

Metal bed frame

Take measurements of course, but mine fit perfectly inside the frame. They have taller ones as well.

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:

https://www.amazon.com/Zinus-SmartBase-Foundation-Replacement-Noise-Free/dp/B006MIUM20/

https://www.amazon.com/Zinus-Platform-Mattress-Foundation-Headboard/dp/B01B8GQAOO/

https://www.amazon.com/Zinus-Standing-Mattress-Foundation-Platform/dp/B07D7J77VL/

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).

$349.99 + free shipping with prime. Had mine since April 14, 2014

Downsides :
takes like 2 days to decompress once you get it - and i see you're in a time pinch.
You absolutely should buy a protector at the same time, and those are hard to get right ... some of my ... 'sleepovers' complain this protector is too hot - probably because it is waterproof - which might be a good add for op. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0035E63WM?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00

upsides:
pretty much everything else, comfort, price, quality, durability. Spring mattresses are good when new new (1-2 yrs) especially for husky (250lbs) young men who like to ..... jump ... on the bed, this thing is just as good since the first day my evil bitch ex girlfriend unboxed it while I was still at school. The video on the unboxing looked pretty awesome..... but i will never know if it was actually that awesome.

u/Dark-Huntsman · 1 pointr/gaming

They are premium products and are advertised as such

To be honest, the dx racers are amazing, aesthetically but very expensive for my taste. I cannot fathom spending over 150 for a chair

They are very comfortable but some features I found Unecessary or pointles,I mean who is gonna wanna turn their chair into a table!?

I have settled for the homall desk chair it's like 80 on amazon

u/Legendhidde · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Please don't buy one of those "gamer" chairs, this is for every major purchase, do NOT buy into the gamer bullshit. Those chairs may look good and sturdy, but they're everything but the best. Save your money and buy a proper ergonomic desk chair.

I hate how everyone is advertising these things, only because they're gamery.

Look at something like this
and this instead.

Buying into gaming chairs is just like buying into Gamer peripherals, like audio and keyboards. High prices, over the top looks but mediocre performance and awful build quality.

We have a japanese futon. They're super inexpensive, comfortable, and they roll up to give you more floor space.

I've been sleeping on one for about 1 and a half years now and I never want to go back to a regular mattress, my back isnt in pain when i wake up anymore lol. We own like three of the queen size ones for different rooms.

Honestly I am using Lifetime tables. As long as you are not putting anything super heavy on them they are fine. If you have nothing but a computer to put on your desk, then having a real 'desk' would be better.

This one looks pretty cool for your price range.

u/Cloudbuster274 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Another chair that is cheaper is This Chair, it's $150 bucks or so, it's not as good as an actual Herman Miller but for the price its great. I got it two years ago and it's still going great.

u/SXSJest · 1 pointr/Austin

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: https://www.amazon.com/Zinus-Memory-Green-Mattress-Queen/dp/B00Q7EPSHI/ref=zg_bs_3732981_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=WPH1AKGRVPDVEQ7R1V7Z

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.

u/wtcnbrwndo4u · 2 pointsr/nfl

I'm getting a new one when I move in a couple of weeks. I'm planning to order this guy.

One of my friends bought it, and it's pretty great. Also has like 20K reviews. For $250, you can't beat that.

u/woofdoggy · 2 pointsr/Mattress

Go to mattress firm and try out a Tulo Firm, it is pretty firm, comes in at 700 right now.

Target has a wide variety of sheets, you can get a king set for less than 55 typically (https://www.target.com/s/threshold+king+sheets)

If you are a Costco member or know someone I think they have some sheet sets that are less when on sale.

Mattress Protector: Luna: https://www.amazon.com/Luna-Hypoallergenic-Waterproof-Mattress-Protector/dp/B002AQPUW0/

Or Coop - home goods mattress protector: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UKHSNYI/

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

Foundation: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006MIVR06 , basic zinus metal frame, 67

Another zinus more traditional slatted option: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07199DPJM 95

Comes out to around 875-900 before tax. Leaves enough for a comforter or blanket. I am sure there are cheaper options for everything I've posted, but those are all products I've tested and at least are familiar with them.

If you want to be adventurous and try a DIY mattress (not very difficult) I can recommend some parts that might work out within your budget too.

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.

u/kickingpplisfun · 1 pointr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

A good(but still cheap) L-shaped desk. It's not perfect, but everything's at roughly the same height(some of them have multiple levels), and you'll have plenty of desk space for monitors of both types, controllers/interfaces, and notes. You'll also want other furniture like a comfy desk chair because you'll be in your studio a lot.

I'm currently working with two thrift-store desks, but this desk is looking promising for when I get a few hundred extra dollars to buy more studio stuff(I'm kind of broke right now).

As far as electronics go, an upgrade to your (computer)keyboard and mouse is a good idea so you can make certain assign certain things in your DAW to more convenient places like a thumb button on your mouse.

Anyways onto the details. Yes it's a cheaper chair. Yes it has flaws. The arm rests get loose easy but can easily be tightened with the tool they give you. Unfortunately mine squeaks from using it when I was heavier. My fiance has one too and hers doesn't squeak at all. It's rather comfortable and would reccomend giving it a shot if you haven't pulled the trigger yet. I was skeptical because of the reviews but overall its been a good chair for 100 bucks.

Mid-Back Black Mesh Swivel Task Chair with Mesh Padded Seat and Flip-Up Arms https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KUPS3JU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_qWliybVTAFPMA

I'm a big fan of this chair. The arms fold up so I can play guitar sitting in it and it rolls under the desk top nicely. It's very comfortable and stays cool. My old chair used to make me sweat cause the back and base were leather material. The one I linked is just fine, at least for me.

u/bl1ndside · 1 pointr/funny

This is the chair you want. The office I work at purchased the mid-back version and I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it was. Since I'm a slacker I like to have a high back so I can lean back. I've used the same chair now for over 2 years and it's still going strong. Little to no wear and I expect it to last a while longer.

u/FamousSuccess · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I feel your pain. I have a comfortable normal office chair. It's above average for sure, but it does lack some of the support really needed. I want to upgrade to something with more neck/head support. I've been looking at this:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MRZ02TL/ref=psdc_668180011_t3_B0031LKYMY

Now I will say, you've got half a foot and 50 lbs on me. I can't speak to the sizing except that generally when I'm in these type of chairs, the top of the chair is above my head. In my experience with racing seats (real ones for cars), taller/wider folk get by just fine by purchasing a "Wide" variation of a seat. It's mostly in the shoulder that create the most discomfort, so accounting for the helps the most.

u/rj_inthe412 · 31 pointsr/pittsburgh
  1. Depending on how much work you want to do you can still find homes for sale inside the city for that price. If you are looking to rent everything should be in your budget as well. Also when you say Pitt do you mean University of Pittsburgh or just Pittsburgh? Pitt is the school, PGH is the city, PIT is the airport. [its a quick way for people to clock you're new if you use those interchangeably]
    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. You can expect to pay around $100/mo for 100/100mpbs fiber. $60 will get you around 50/50mpbs. FiOS is the only provider that matches upload/download speeds.

Some other decent ideas were people using solid flat sided doors as a desk top and make a frame out of 2x4s or filing cabinets and just set it on top. The doorknob hole is perfect for running wires.

I ended up getting a cheap but sturdy metal frame, a headboard-in-a-box, a cheap bed board (had a box frame originally, but it made the bed too high) and the big expenditure, a memory foam mattress, all purchased from Amazon.com. Had the mattress for about 18 months and it's been awesome! So much better than my old mattress.

very good, reasonably priced chair.mesh back helps with back getting hot, seat is quite comfy, i think mine is slowly loosing its cushion-ness, but still very supportive (had it for over a year). seat also has a lot of adjustment (seat tilt, back tilt, height). only complaints i guess would be there is not any arm rest adjustment and nothing really in the way of lumbar support. but again, for the money, this chair should make anyone happy.

u/MarzMan · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have a Lorell which is pretty good except for the hydraulic piston which I replaced with a larger one. The mesh is very durable and fairly comfortable.

Just looking, amazon has some cheap mesh chairs and they look to be highly rated. Seat padding looks sub-par but the flip up arms is an awesome feature.

These types are the gold standard gaming chair but they are made for a specific body type and I don't fit that mold even remotely, I'm far too tall and wide for them so I've never even wanted to try them out. This is most likely a knockoff brand. DXRacer is the one brand I've looked at, they've been around a few years.

Pretty much had the same journey as you.
From a glass setup: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001FB5LE8
To a wooden Ikea desk: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S69006392/#/S29006394

The glass desk just got dusty way too easily and was a bit too cramped for my 2 x 27" monitors to enjoy. Not to mention I had to rest a towel or similar on it if I wished to enjoy a hot beverage or breakfast. Too much hassle.

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!

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.

Edit: claimed. Thanks!

u/Zachkay · 12 pointsr/buildapc

Amazon has tons of chairs that are basically ripoffs of dxr racers and other fancy brands. I got one of these a few months ago and absolutely love it. I just took off the armrests because I don't like them in general. Super comfy, can play games for hours without getting sore or legs falling asleep.

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/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] (http://www.amazon.com/Sleep-Innovations-SureTemp-Mattress-Warranty/dp/B003CT37L0/ref=pd_sbs_hg_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=10252NKCFKSG0ZTPDHYJ) 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/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.

There is no such things as a good $100 chair. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002LK1YNO/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

This is the only chair I buy anymore.. I bought 1 a few years ago, and now this is the only chair I buy for the office guys too. It is amazing and it has a life time warranty (which I have easily taken advantage of on some of the chairs i have purchased).

Don't be cheap on a chair.. your back will thank you.

I'm also in the market for a new chair. I'm sick of the fake leather (PU Leather, Bonded Leather, etc) chairs that ive unfortuantely been using for far too long and my back is forever thankful for it. I've looked at chairs ranging from $100 up to $900 and while I do enjoy the borrowed SteelCase Leap that im currently sitting in, I could never justify the price for this thing. Dont get me wrong, its built like an tank and will likely last decades instead of years, But its just not for me.

If you want a chair like the SteelCase Leap, they can be found for very reasonable prices used for as low as $275 here: https://designerseating.com/collections/work/products/steelcase-leap-v1-office-chair-black-fabric
So many great chairs sat in board rooms, offices, etc and were hardly used and are widely available.
They even the Herman Miller Aeron Semi-Loaded Size B, slightly used of course for $475. That's a $1100 chair new!

As for me, im looking at buying either the Alera Elusion Series Mesh High-Back Multifunction Chair found here:
https://www.amazon.com/Alera-Elusion-High-Back-Multifunction-Chair/dp/B0049UCECE/ref=sr_1_3?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1492660004&sr=8-3&keywords=high+back+mesh+chair&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011

The older I get the less I see the need for super fancy expensive stuff it seems. Use to get fancy leathery chairs that were hundred of dollars and now I got a mesh chair that's fairly cheap and can say it's been the best chair I have ever got so far. I'm surprised the price has gone up about $25 since I got it two years ago though.

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.

u/Kairus00 · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

I have a high back mesh chair made by Lorell and added on a headrest. I've had mesh chairs at work for years and I'm a big fan. It's not plush like a big leather chair, but it's still comfortable and breathes so well. This chair has good adjustability; the seat can be moved forward/backwards independent of the back and then it has your standard adjustments.

Craigslist is your friend for couches. I got a $3k (new) leather couch in good condition for $200 that way. That was one of many choices at the time, for no more than $400. It's long and comfortable to sleep on and I could probably sell it for $200 when I move. Add another ~$100 for a nice Japanese futon and you've got beds for 2 guests.

I've had back problems before and initially bought it for that reason, but now I have a hard time falling asleep on a traditional western bed. I'm a stomach and side sleeper. I think if you were a back sleeper the transition would be a lot easier. But I also learned that sleeping with another pillow for back support depending on your sleeping style was important too.

http://www.lumobodytech.com/2013/06/improve-your-posture-while-you-sleep/

I've had no problems with my back since switching and can honestly say I'll never go back. (no pun intended) IMO, pay the shipping and invest in the shikibuton. It's the best purchase decision I've made in a long time.

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. https://www.amazon.com/Memory-Pillow-Luxurious-Velour-Washable/dp/B0049E1OOE

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.

I actually slept on this for over a year, last year, before getting married. It was great. Definitely takes some time to get used to though. After a few days your whole body starts to crave a traditional mattress, but it adapts.

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.

If you have prime, great deal. I’ve used this desk for two years and it’s great

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.

FOR REAL, they are so expensive. im happy to find this one.

Between those two I'd get the mesh one. When I was younger I was all over the (p)leather chairs but I moved onto the mesh ones due to better ventilation for the back.

What about this one? It's under $100 and has a ton of good reviews:

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.

I got two of these.

They were cheap and with Prime shipping got it real fast. They seem pretty solid and have decent reviews. They are modular, but only vertically. I would recommend if you are on a budget. Also, it comes in white, black, or natural wood.

I think this studio is kind of cute/cozy! If you can change the bed for a futon, that's a bed and couch in one.

Is there enough room to put the big table where the small table is in the pictures? You might be able to fit a couch where the big table is, and put the small table in front of that? Or get rid of the small table all together and get some shelving instead... with perhaps a love seat?


If you want to go Japanese style, you could get rid of the bed, and get a roll-up bed, that would give you more floor space.

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.

I walked in to the office furniture store in my town, the 6'6" salesman spotted me, and sat me this chair. The seat height is 64 cm, which fit me perfectly. Since it's my personal property, I carry it from job to job.

This chair has an unusually high back and long seat. It's made in Taiwan, of all places; a quick check on Amazon UK does not show it available there.

Try and office furniture stores that cater to City (yes, I realize you're 400 miles away from there) firms, this is the only other place I've been to other than Amsterdam and Sarajevo where I didn't feel unusually tall.

But, not to despair; most office chairs have a standard 50mm diameter seatpost, you can replace the stock seatpost with a longer one.

I have this one. I love it. I am 6 ft tall and usually like to pull my legs up into the chair. Very comfortable.

I have this chair with these added arm rest covers, and it's amazing. I spend A LOT of sitting these days (yay dedicated!), and it keeps me comfortable.
