Even if you’re on a budget, it pays to invest in a high-quality mattress. Why? You’ll be laying on it a lot. Eight hours every day, in fact. So, invest in a good night’s sleep and a healthy back: get a mattress that you really like.
Like much in life, mattress shopping has migrated online. While your parents went to a department store and lay in bed after bed, you can choose your mattress with a click of the mouse, from the comfort of your home.
How will you know which mattress to choose? Online reviews can help, as does the common trial period companies allow, letting you test your new purchase for weeks before making a final decision.
