For our guest room we have two twin beds that we put together with one of these:

You could do the same with these and just get a giant strap to go around both mattresses.

u/RoarOmegaRoar · 154 pointsr/AskWomen

I'm going to cheat and put my top three all time faves:

  1. My quilted mattress topper. I trusted the reviews on this one and omg my bed is the comfiest thing ever now.

  2. Comfy tank dress with pockets! I got it in black and it's super versatile to layer with and dress up or down.

  3. Acrylic three drawer makeup organizer to keep my makeup from covering every surface in my room!
u/Mawu3n4 · 50 pointsr/LifeProTips

In a UK subreddit there was a thread of someone looking for the best kind of foam mattress available and a redditor pointed out that all the big brands (Casper, Simba, etc) all have the same base because it's a patented material and the other layers are just basic foam you can buy yourself.

So for less than $200 I got myself the different layers on Amazon and it's easily one of the best mattress I have ever slept on. Every time I lay in bed I'm surprised by how comfy, never slept better before in my life.

Base layer:

Middle layer:

Top layer:

u/broostenq · 38 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

The make converter kits for this. Common in European hotels to have a "king room" that can be converted into 2 twins because many of the king beds are just two twins pushed together.

u/kilgannon · 28 pointsr/frugalmalefashion


you'll have to pay $20 out of your own pocket, but it will be the best $20 you have ever spent in your life. You have to let it air out for about 48 hours, but those 48 hours will pay off. trust me. Do it.

u/Eccentrica_Gallumbit · 25 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Even better, heated mattress pad under the blanket.

u/be_bo_i_am_robot · 24 pointsr/minimalism

Do it! My shikibuton is the best sleeping surface I've ever used, bar none! I beats out my old expensive king-sized memory foam bed and mattress, handily!

I bought my shikibuton and tri-fold mats on Amazon. I use normal sheets and blanket.

Also, the buckwheat pillows are great!

Anyway, every morning I fold and store them away. I put em out every evening.

I love the extra space. And I actually sleep great on it!

u/genericdude999 · 17 pointsr/camping

That's the spirit OP. I try to stick as close to ultralight as possible for backpacking. For car camping it's a great luxury to bring EVERY DAMNED THING I OWN.

By the way, lose those thin backpacking pads and get some Shikibutons. Also I never take narrow mummy bags car camping, ever. Big cheap warm rectangular Walmart bags FTW. Cabin tent! Cooler of beer! Comfy chairs! Propane for everything!

u/The_edref · 13 pointsr/UniUK

Speakers will make your life so much better. I'd recommend getting a shower speaker too, your flatmates will love you.

A door stop is the right answer.

If you get a memory foam mattress topper your life will be so much better. It makes any bed amazing, and, although they aren't particularly cheap, they can last a very long time. I have this one

Get some good quality pens and books of paper. You don't want the refil pads as they always fall apart sooner or later, get some which have metal binding on one side. For pens I always got a box of these or these. They make the vast amounts of notes you need to take much better.

Don't buy the recommended reading until you have checked how many copies the library has. There's a good chance you'll be able to read them enough without paying for them, or search Bookname.pdf into google and it will probably be there.

Pint glasses are very useful things to have, but I found it added a nice touch to my flat if they were all borrowed from pubs.

get a multipack of playing cards on the cheap from amazon. You'll probably get through a fair few packs in first year. Some poker chips were a nice thing to own as well. In 3rd year I got Cards Against humanity as well, and it is a very good game for predrinks

Get minimum 1 good frying pan, 1 good saucepan, a good wooden chopping board, a good chefs knife, a baking sheet, and a colander.

Get a bottle opener like this one and you will have hours of fun pinging the caps at people

I didn't use mine much in 1st year, but all the other years of uni my bike was a great thing to have. It allows you to shop further away (so cheaper) and reduces your reliance on public transport. It also means you can get out of your area of the city occasionally, which is nice.

A french press means you can make a whole pot of great coffee for your flatmates when you are all getting up after a heavy night, at which point they might crown you or start worshiping you or some shit

u/Johng123 · 9 pointsr/VirginiaTech

Get one of the mattress pads for those me they make it so much more comfortable to sleep on and aren't too pricey. (Something like this: )

u/adaml223 · 8 pointsr/minimalism

I sleep on a shikibuton. I bought it about 6 months ago after becoming interested in Japanese futons. Because I didn't want to break the bank to purchase an authentic one, I settled for this one.

I fold it up every morning, fold my blanket, and set it and my buckwheat pillow on top of it and set it away in my room.

Before this I was using an old mattress that was in the spare room of my grandma's where I live. Being that my grandma isn't too interested in the idea of minimalism, my room becomes a very calming place for me when I head up to bed at night.

Just thought of this after I posted. I wish I would've realized the idea of minimalism before I moved out of my apartment. I was already on the side of have fewer possessions than most people, but I hadn't gotten to the point were I realized it and was able to fine tune it. I was basically a minimalist that didn't know it and therefore didn't put much thought into it.

u/lookin4funtimez · 7 pointsr/polyamory

Pro tip: check out something along these lines: EPHEDORA Bed Bridge

u/Michlerish · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

If that's the case, I would suggest any of these (in Asia it's commonplace to sleep on the floor, so I would look around for asian style beds):

Tri-fold foam bed from Amazon

Japanese style floor futon mattress from Amazon

Korean "yo" floor mattress from Gmarket

u/justsomemammal · 5 pointsr/Parenting
u/benjammin9292 · 5 pointsr/USMC

Protip : go to bed bath and beyond or order off amazon or wherever the fuck, and get a memory foam top layer like this

u/_Guinness · 5 pointsr/chicago

When I lived in my smallish 1 bedroom apartment I kept the thermostat at 72 or 73. When I moved into my 2 bedroom condo with tall ceilings I set it down to 65 or 67. At night I'll let it hit 60. I also bought one of these for sleeping. Highly recommend.

Honestly....I got used to it really quick. Without a sweater too. 67 feels rather warm now, and 60-63 is where I start to get chilly.

My what a $500 electric bill will make you tolerate.....

u/whiskey_pants · 4 pointsr/sexover30

Also a tip...if by chance it interests you. Mine drove me a little nuts with moving and shifting. I ended up buying bent quilting safety pins (boomerang shaped) and pinning it to the mattress. It works great and no more needing to fix it every few days. We found otherwise it shifted. That said, we do have some pretty active sex very regularly and I think that was a huge part of it.

I will link what I have now because I love it. That said, I was very happy with the one before that too and can't recall the manufacturer, but I lost the power supply when I took it off for summer to store. The one before that IDK what happened. I don't recall it breaking. My only point there is that I have never had one that I thought was bad. They have all been just as good and I am sure they were different makers, etc. So I am linking what I have for ease of reference, but I bet most of them are pretty great and some features vary so look around if it's something you think you might want to try.

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/homeowners

Space heater

Wood stove

Electric blanket

Also, I got one of these, an electric mattress pad and my wife fuckin' LOVES it.

Ever gotten into a bed with really cold sheets? Yeah not us anymore.

Snack foods like granola bars and mixed nuts - keep the internal furnace going.

u/jsmayne · 4 pointsr/Frugal

idk which therm a rest you were looking at but for the cost of their basic model

you could get a mattress topper

my cousin slept on a mattress topper on a piece of ply wood in a van when she traveled cross country and loved it. said it was the most comfortable bed she ever had

u/mrcj22 · 3 pointsr/NCSU

Bring a small fan like this. Dorms can get really hot, plus its great to use as white noise to focus on if people are being loud when you're getting to sleep.

I would also get a foam mattress topper. Not the terrible egg crate style, but temurpedic type memory foam. (Doesn't need to be tempurpedic brand obviously.)

u/markesh0 · 3 pointsr/camping

So I know how you feel, im 6'3" 375 and i hate sleeping on the ground all together.

With that said, I hope price isnt too much of an issue.

I started with a double tall air matress from some generic company. Its just to offer the buffer between me and the floor.

The winner is this guy, who makes it feel like your laying on the most comfy home bed ever... When your done, use it a home on top of your mattress, but I bought mine just for camping first.

All totaled its around $200, but you will love sleeping in it for sure.

u/eutamias21 · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

OP could also get a floor mattress (cheaper and usually smaller).

u/parmethius2000 · 3 pointsr/Frugal

I bought this exact model a bit ago for a mattress topper but if you get the 1" thicker versions you should be able to just throw it on the floor...

I'll never be without a mattress topper like this as long as I live, that's how much more comfortable I am with it under me.

u/Pixisprinkles · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I was in the exact same boat! The snoogle helped a lot, but what really helped me the most was getting a memory foam mattress topper (I got this one No more hip pain at night!

u/Socific · 3 pointsr/onebag

Hammock is awesome. A decent one will probably run you $30.

If you have $150 to spare, grab one of these. I had this for 8 months+ and still own it, it's comfy and supportive.

If you're cheap, get a second sleeping bag from a thrift shop and stuff it with eggcrate foam. I slept on one of those for a few months and it was not bad.

u/PlantyHamchuk · 3 pointsr/Homesteading

Where are you located? How cold are the temperatures you're dealing with? After adding even more insulation (like this -|1&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_qty_sales_dollar|1&facetInfo=) and grabbing some of those mylar blankets (, checking for air leaks, I'd get a cuddly dog.

If you want to splurge, get yourself one of these - - we don't heat our bedroom at all, but use this instead + lots of blankets. Very economical.

The advantage of working with such a small space is that you can more easily insulate the heck out of it. Only go for extra heaters if you really need to... they can end up killing your electrical bill and/or burning your place down if you aren't careful.

u/ThePNWBackPacker · 3 pointsr/4Runner

I can’t find the exact one, but it’s similar to this:

American Furniture Alliance Hide A' Mat 3.5 x 30 x 75 inch Jr Twin TriFold Mattress, Navy

u/PM_ME_CLOWN_TITS · 3 pointsr/CozyPlaces

Yep. I just lay the wide side of the rear seat down and slap one of these down there, grab a sleeping bag to put on top and a couple of pillows and I'm set. I stash a cooler either in the front passenger seat if I need a big one, or in the floorboard of the driver's side rear seat if i only need a small one for the weekend. My camp stove and a small suitcase go in the trunk on the side I'm not using for sleeping. There's actually plenty of room in there for the essentials.

The Prius acts as its own generator so if you're in a place that's particularly cold or hot you can leave the car running with the AC or heat on. It runs on the hybrid battery the majority of the time and the gas engine will kick in to recharge the battery every so often. Depending on the weather you can spend anywhere from $0 if it's cool/warm enough to just have the windows cracked for air flow to $1.50 if it's particularly hot or cold and the car needs to run more to make up for the AC/heat.

I was looking for ideas for saving cash on a road trip when I found this dude's blog and YouTube video about setting up his Prius to live in. I'm not living in my car so I haven't done most of what he did to set it up, but I took some ideas for going camping in it.

u/dawobbles · 3 pointsr/minimalism

This. I bought one recently and it's nice to have something that folds up and can be stored away.

u/lencioni · 3 pointsr/twincitiessocial

If your house is anything like mine, I'd guess it will be in the upper 40s in the morning.

Get yourself a heated mattress pad. Easily one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. I think I read somewhere that it only costs like 2 cents/night to run and there's nothing better than jumping into a toasty warm bed at night. I had waited so long to buy it because I had experience with other mattress pads where you could feel the wires, but this one is nothing like that. Super soft. And it lets us set the thermostat super low at night no problem. Beats the old space heater hands down.

Good luck with the pipes.

u/tripleplay23 · 3 pointsr/ethtrader

Memory foam mattress topper! Cheap and will change your life.

u/N_Rage · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

I've slept for about a year on cheap air matresses from kmart and even though I've got some issues with my back it worked well and was comfortable.
However most matresses only lasted about 1-2 months until they developed a hole, even though the material seemed reasonably strong, so if you're planning on finding a long term solution, I'd get a real mattress.

You also mentionned in another post that you will be camping in cold weather. Air matresses do not insulate well, so I put blankets on top of mine, but it still wasn't as warm as a regular mattress.

The biggest advantage of air matresses is their ability to be able to be emptied and stored in a small space and the flexibility this offers. This is great for weekend trips, but when you're living in your car on a permanent basis, it's not necessary.
The only time I deflated mine was when I was doing a road trip with a few people and simply needed the space.

The mattress you linked also seems rather wide and would take up a lot of space, something you already don't have a lot of. Just lie down and measure how much space you actually need to sleep, for me it's about 60cm/23.5 inches, the mattress you linked is about twice as wide.
Another thing to keep in mind is vertical space in the back of your car. In the wagon I was sleeping in I had about 80cm/31.5in in the back from the trunk area to the roof. After putting in 1/2 inch plywood on 4-5inch stilts and then placing an air matress with a height of 6 inches on top, there was very little space left.
So little in fact, that my shoulder had to squeeze along the roof when turning around while sleeping. I'm not even going to go into the effort of getting into the spot in the first place.
Something to consider, in case you're claustrophobic.

After a few weeks a big storm hit the city I was sleeping in, causing heavy rains for about a week, so everything got really damp and the plywood construction started to get moldy, so I got rid of it for good.

I'd try to get a foldable foam mattress like this one instead, it can still be stored somewhat easily while being more durable and insulating better.

u/Sparky_1979 · 2 pointsr/DIY

I've made a few outdoor sofas and unfortunately the seating cushion is the most expensive part. I used fold out guest beds for the seating cushion and just cheap sofa cushions for the back rest. Here's a similar link to what i used:

u/Theupixf · 2 pointsr/breakingmom

Damn... I thought they were supposed to have some sort of fire resistance like kids pajamas. Guess I was wrong. Maybe get one of those mattress pads? (Something like this: ) It would at least cover the area, shouldn't affect putting your sheets on, and might help the spot from getting bigger... maybe. At the very least, it'd cover the spot and you'd have one more layer between you and that.

u/pyrotak · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

Have you considered a memory foam topper. I have one in the guest room on a blow up bed and all my guests say it's super comfy.

LUCID 3" Ventilated Memory Foam Mattress Topper, Full

I also have one on my expensive pillow top mattress that I sleep on. It's incredible.

u/catdeuce · 2 pointsr/simracing

I just got the CSL. I like it, but it needs some adjustment. I'm 5'10" 180, and while I fit well on the 2nd to smallest size it has, it isn't super comfortable quite yet. This video has some info on what you need to do to get it better. I ended up replacing the bottom foam with 4 pieces of this, and have 2 pieces in the back and will probably put 3. I still need to drill the extra hole in the frame for the seat, since it's still a bit pinchy. But if you're up to modifying it, I think the CSL is the better buy, simply because it doesn't have a center post.

u/supermatthew · 2 pointsr/Frugal

You might also consider instead of an air mattress, a japanese futon. It is slightly more expensive but probably more comfortable.

u/forgivepapi · 2 pointsr/Fibromyalgia

unfortunately I had a great weighted blanket, seen here, but I couldn't use it for sleeping. it was fine if I was on my back but if I turned on either of my sides (which I do as soon as I fall asleep, without fail) it pressed me into the mattress so hard that it pushed the pressure points on the sides of my hips so hard into the mattress that it really hurt. I got it for christmas and used it for about two weeks before storing it. I actually sold it recently. so sad. it was the best until it was the worst!

I don't have a vibrating heating pad, but I do have a heated mattress pad, which is great. it's by sunbeam, and they have a great warranty. it didn't work one year and I shipped it back and they sent me a brand new one for $15, or maybe it was free? maybe that was just the cost to ship to them, I can't recall.

i'll have to check out this ultimate bed business, thanks!

u/LunarStone · 2 pointsr/minimalism

I have a trifold foam one that I bought on Amazon, and it was much cheaper and far more comfortable than the "stuffed ones", like the one in the picture.

This is what I have, though you can get the queen sized one as well I'm pretty sure:

I'm not even exaggerating when I say it's the most comfortable bed I've had, and my previous bed was some $900. Just look at the reviews. Before buying this foam one, I had purchased one of the "stuffed" roll up ones, that was about $300.... I regretted it, wasn't comfortable. I purchased the foam one directly after.

The only thing I can think to complain about is that the material it is made of doesn't feel amazing on the skin, but obviously you're supposed to put a sheet over it, so that's not an issue.

For college, I think it depends on your living situation. Are you in a dorm, your own apartment, what? Speaking from experience, I've never lost out on a sexual opportunity from using a floor mattress, but then again I don't bring the girl to my room first thing. I usually don't even bring them to my room until they are displaying obvious interest, like us making out. If they comment on it as we go there, I just say tell them it's an fancy traditional Japanese bed, ha.

I've never had complaints about it beyond that, but obviously you just have to make sure that the area in the room is clean. It's one thing to have a floor mattress in a clean room, and another to have it in a room with mess on the floor. So think about that.

u/JWolff1513 · 2 pointsr/HelpMeFind

How about a heated mattress cover instead? That way you're sleeping on top of it and the cords should be harder to hit.
Not sure if this is available in Australia but here's a link.
Alternately, you can search for "heated mattress pad".

u/bigjim_mccoy · 2 pointsr/minimalism

I have a shikibuton from Amazon.

It is incredibly comfortable. They have some more styles if you look around. Pretty affordable. I've gotten so used to it I don't even think about it but other people find it kind of strange. "You don't own a bed?!?"

u/GingerAle55555 · 2 pointsr/internetparents

This air mattress is $120 and is excellent. It has a built in pump so you can just turn the knob to add more air when needed. It's also pretty much the height of a regular bed so it doesn't feel like your sleeping on the floor. I highly recommend getting a mattress pad like this one and it will really make it feel like a real bed.... we have this set up (along with some IKEA sheets and comforter) and guests who use it always rave that they can barely tell it's not a normal bed. By the time you add it all up (mattress $119, pad $20, sheets, pillows, comforter) you'll be under your $250 but probably close unless you can just use stuff you already have!

If you absolutely have to go the futon route, check Craigslist and IKEA, but to be honest they're pretty pricey for the decent ones and the cheap ones aren't very comfortable.

u/Slaughterhorn · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Yeah those are legitimate concerns - I've only had it for a couple weeks, so I can't comment on the pleather's durability, but I'm sure a cover or throw would help. I usually throw a little fleece blanket on it and that helps with both the heat/breathability issue and the durability.

I know this may come across as insane, but something I've always wanted to try is getting a slip cover like this and layering a memory foam mattress topper like this underneath it, cutting it to fit as necessary. Basically just trying to turn the chair into a black hole of comfy goodness. I'll let you know if I end up trying it out!

u/mouseroo · 2 pointsr/PetiteGoneWild

You know what makes a bed even more appealing on cold days? Heated comforters.

u/BlasphemousArchetype · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

That's crazy. Hopefully he's a bro about it if you can't get it taken care of. I only know what I know from being with this one woman who had kids. I'd still try the laundry detergent. Get a bucket of hot water with some detergent in it and a sponge. Scrub it and then hit it with the blow dryer. Also, for the future they make these mattress cover things that I'll link to, if you get to it quick enough you can take it off and it won't soak through to the actual mattress. Then you can just wash it like any other laundry.


u/AstigAk · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I would suggest getting heated mattress pads like this. They use very little energy, and only heat where you need it (in bed). This way, they can turn the heat down in the whole house at night. That will solve part of your problem.

Next, If they haven't already, I would look into air-sealing. Air sealing is one of the most cost-effective ways to save energy. All of the insulation in the world won't really matter much if the house is not air-sealed.

Lastly, at the risk of sounding condescending (I'm not), buy them some sweaters.

u/oscarsmygrouch · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

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

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

u/star_nerdy · 2 pointsr/sex

I had this topper on my mattress for years and it was excellent. But in general you want something foam. The thicker you go the better it’ll be at quieting the sound.

The only hard part about these is that it makes getting out of bed difficult. On the plus side, they help keep my arm from going to sleep when cuddling since my arms isn’t pinched when a girl lays on my arm.

You can go with other toppers. But this is what I used.

u/blackdog_9 · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I purchased this memory foam mattress topper last year and cut it to fit the interior of my tent. We have also used it on the floor of our home (moving in and didn't have bed arrive yet) and in both situations its been pretty comfortable. We put a duvet cover on it and roll it up with nylon straps to about 12" diameter and stick it in a closet when not in use. Pretty cheap and easy to store. If you prefer cushier mattresses I'd recommend getting something that is 4" thickness or more.

u/rvks23 · 2 pointsr/UCSD

I got this one my freshman year and every one of my friends who have slept on it loved it. It's more squishy and soft during the summer but does get firmer when the weather gets cold, as all memory foam works. Just warming it up with your body for a few mins brought it back though..!


u/daniel_ismyrealname · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I got this one on Amazon.

(Soft Heat Micro-Plush Top Low-Voltage Electric Heated Queen Mattress Pad, White)

u/dry_cabin · 2 pointsr/4Runner

I've got this
Only spent one night on it so far but for the price it was great. It fit perfectly with the rear seat bottom removed.

u/AskMeForADadJoke · 2 pointsr/TeardropTrailers

I have a 4” (2 1/2” of it is soft high density foam and 1 1/2” is memory foam”) and it is perfect and SO comfortable. Easily cut it to the shape of the space and it’s awesome.

This is it

u/pyrotonic · 2 pointsr/UCDavis

Hi! The mattress pad I bought for living in the dorms was this one:
I think it was cheaper when I bought it a year ago, but considering you use this every night I wouldn't get a super cheap one - your back will thank you.

It's rather cosy and can take a lot of use (no tears yet, 1 year later!) Heck, even though I have a fairly new mattress and box spring now that I'm living in an apartment I am still using the pad on top of it all. You will want a twin XL size for the topper and sheets in the dorms, but you can continue to use both of them on a regular twin bed later on.

u/jack-dawed · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Memory foam topper

u/Gameboi_Advance · 2 pointsr/AdultBedwetting
  1. Off the shelf, none of them really worked at keeping everything in so I use waterproof pads and just wash them (

  2. I am a very deep sleeper and I do occasionally have insomnia. I've had a few sleep tests done and it's just further proof that I sleep very deeply.

  3. Desmopressin has worked for years, I have never used imipramine.

  4. I don't usually have caffeine, I'm not a coffee drinker. My weakness is that I get super thirsty at night.

    And yes, I've wet pretty consistently during that time, although one summer a bedwetting alarm really helped, it's what I'm currently trying.
u/benjisworld · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

This is the best topper I've found for the price. Been using it for over a year without any problems. It's quite comfortable and doesn't get hot.

I'm still searching for good sheets. Please post if you find something decent.

u/purplerain444 · 1 pointr/Fibromyalgia

I have a heated mattress pad! It's like an electric blanket for your mattress. I knew I would love it because I'm always cold, but it turns out it helps relax my muscles and I sleep better when I use it. Heat therapy for the win! This is the one I have.

u/MengKongRui · 1 pointr/skyrimvr

Regarding the room space, there are ways to play where you don't have to move around much, but moving does add to the immersion and fun.


What I did to add space to my room is replace the bed with a foldable floor bed like this:

u/goboinouterspace · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I have this one from Amazon and it is AMAZING. Way more comfortable than my regular mattress! I use it in the summer:

u/trashlikeyourmom · 1 pointr/BlackPeopleTwitter

Buy one of these, it will change your life.

Not recommended for memory-foam mattresses though

u/Older_But_Wiser · 1 pointr/sex

Are you talking about something for sleeping, lounging AND sex or just for having sex in a cold room?

If it's all three then why not just a warm nightgown (flannel maybe?) and some leg warmers.

If it is for sex in a cold room then why not either a space heater and/or a heated mattress pad and/or warm comforter.

We always (or almost always) get naked for sex but DW prefers to wear something for sleeping.

u/Razvan-Sedekiah · 1 pointr/rpg

I wonder if I could make something out of this twin sized memory foam mattress which costs $20... this has been an inspiring thread. Thnx.

u/Abiv23 · 1 pointr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

you can order a 'tempurpedic' bed topper for ~100

u/johnsmithindustries · 1 pointr/LifeProTips
  1. Zone heating. Heat the room you are in with a space heater, keep the central air turned much lower. Keep doors shut and use blankets hung in the entryways to trap heat in the rooms you are using.

  2. If you don't have a programmable thermostat, get one. They are inexpensive and easy to install. Program it to turn things down when you are away and up when you are home.

  3. Open all the window blinds/shades and let as much sunlight in during the day as you can, then close up at night. If you have old or drafty windows, put up plastic or tack up a blanket or use heavy drapes to add a little insulation.

  4. I HIGHLY recommend getting an electric blanket or mattress pad and a nice comforter. Program or turn down your thermostat to drop several degrees (I go to 58 or 60) at bedtime, because there's no need to heat the whole house when you know exactly where you will be for the next 8 hours - asleep in your amazing cocoon of warmth. They aren't cheap, but a good one will last you a long time and save you a bundle.

    Though slightly more expensive, I actually recommend a heated mattress pad versus a blanket, because the heat will rise through and warm your sheets but get trapped by your comforter - keeping the heat next to you. I have the queen size version of this one and it is amazing. It helped me survive winter at school when we had the thermostat at 58 almost all the time. It makes enough heat that just sitting in bed was really comfy, so I would end up doing all of my homework in bed.

    Note: If you've got a programmable thermostat, make sure you turn on the heat about 15 minutes before you wake up to make getting out of bed easier.

They don't say they're waterproof, I wouldn't waterproof yours as the chemicals would dehydrate the leather. Because water is polar and oil is non-polar, whenever you oil (condition - upkeep) your boots, it essentially kinda waterproofs the leather. I've stepped in many puddles and have never had wet socks.

Definitely get a mattress topper. Here's a link to the one I bought, I would pay $200 for how comfortable it is.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

u/mrsaturnboing · 1 pointr/Frugal

I've been thinking about getting one of these trifold mattresses from Amazon:

Two would equal an American Full mattress and can fold up into a place to sit, I believe.

Pretty much any mattress I've ever slept on hurts my back, while the floor does not. I think 3 inches of padding would be just right for me, personally.

u/eddy159357 · 1 pointr/AskWomen

What kind of topper do you have? Memory foam density matters quite a bit. The one i linked is the one I have, and the 4lb density foam is amazing. I think you can also find the 5lb density on amazon as well, and it'll prob feel like a cloud that u sink into like quicksand.

u/morgf · 1 pointr/Mattress

That looks like a mattress pad, not a mattress protector. I'm not sure how tightly woven it is, so how effective it would be at blocking dust I don't know. But if you are looking for a good quality mattress pad, here is a nice one:

u/Suprcel · 1 pointr/vandwellers

Hyundai Elantra Touring,

Memory foam topper, Like This, trimmed to fit. slightly shorter than regular twin, and since I'm only using have the backseat it is quite a bit narrower.

u/AshtonR26 · 1 pointr/rheumatoid

I have this mattress topper and a super firm mattress. Personally, I feel better whenever the mattress doesn't sink much around me and has some support. That mattress topper is only 3 inches and provides the perfect amount of foam support without you feeling like you're sleeping on a cloud.

u/bartleby · 1 pointr/simpleliving

Thanks - that was helpful. I've searched and found some Japanese-style futons that roll up (if desired):

I've also found these shikibuton mat things that fold into three:
I especially like those because the bed can become a seat when not in use.

u/clifgray · 1 pointr/vandwelling

I've got a Crosstrek as well, if you end up doing a build like this make sure you post it! I've slept in mine with this little tri-fold 75" futon and it has actually been surprisingly comfortable. But it eliminates most of my storage room and I would like to fit two people plus storage under the futon. I think it is doable though!

u/Elyezabeth · 1 pointr/vandwellers

If you decide to go with a more substantial mattress pad, I recommend this one it's narrower than a twin, and can fold up if you need it to. I have an almost identical setup to yours in a Honda Pilot and I love it (although I only use it for weekend climbing trips).

Utopia Bedding Quilted Fitted Mattress Pad (Queen) - Mattress Cover Stretches up to 16 Inches Deep - Mattress Topper

u/Toostinky · 1 pointr/overlanding

This isn't the exact one I have.. but you can get something similar almost anywhere

u/itsmikeo · 1 pointr/TeardropTrailers

I bought this and absolutely LOVE it. I cut it to the shape of the inside of the teardrop and covered it with the shallowest fitted sheet I could find (9" deep) and its really, really comfortable. What I like about it a lot was there are two firmnesses put together into one mattress. Helps a lot with support.

Welcome to the frozen north and brace yourself - winter straight up sucks. Here are some things that will make it better!!:

These bad boys will keep you from falling on your butt when you're walking on icy roads and parking lots.
A heated mattress pad will keep your bed nice and toasty warm! Sanctuary!!!!
In a similar vein, a heated throw blanket will keep you warm while you're on the couch. The great thing about heated mattress pads/throw blankets/etc. is that it keeps you warm without you needing to turn the heat up, using less heating oil. And using less heating oil is a GOOD THING!
They aren't sexy, but long underwear are effective at keeping the cold at bay.
Chintzy cotton socks aren't gonna cut it anymore. Invest in some solid wool socks. Yes, they cost a lot, but they are worth their weight in gold!

Don't worry - you'll make it :)

u/StAliaTheAbomination · 1 pointr/BDSMcommunity

A little late to this party, but I had to ask my gf to find the Amazon link.

We both get pretty damn wet, but she's prone to squirt. We use this:

They have never leaked. They're big enough that one is fine unless like... We want one under both of us during oral. The bottom is plasticy and stays where you put it. The top is soft like a mattress-top. We have several... Because we have a lot of sex, lol. But they're truly amazing. We've never had to do the sheets... Even after the 10th squirting orgasms in a row, when there's literally a puddle on top.

Confort AND protection? Perfect!

It's not just plastic, so it absorbs too, so there's little chance of run-off. When done, just fold it up, wash it in hot water, and wham, ready to go again.

EDIT: A final thought.

u/phoenixjet · 1 pointr/Frugal

The electric mattress pads work and are definitely worth the money. I bought this one about a year ago.

u/Kadin2048 · 1 pointr/GoodValue

Also I can recommend this heated mattress pad if you want to go that route:

It's a bit more expensive than traditional ones because it has a transformer that drops the voltage actually going through the heating coils (makes it a little more safe around pets who might chew/claw it). If you don't have pets you can get a Sunbeam one for about $40 less.

u/yami_fiesta · 1 pointr/vandwellers

Like this? Was that comfortable? Do you know how high your bed platform was? I am trying to do a similar thing in a 2005 Ford Escape but it looks like the CRV has much more internal height, even though the Escape is overall taller, my platform is putting me too close to the ceiling.

u/cfc1016 · 1 pointr/vandwellers

also check THIS out. Definitely less compact than a camping-oriented sleeping pad, but will probably be considerably more comfortable, and take up far less space (when not being used) than a solid, one-piece mattress would. I've had this or some other similar version on my 'potentially useful equipment' list for future/possible builds.

u/humpbackwhale88 · 1 pointr/financialindependence

Delayed response, but I actually use a mattress pad from amazon that lays on top of my low quality IKEA mattress, and everyone who has ever sat on/taken a nap in/ etc in that bed agreed that ours is rue most comfortable. Not too firm, not too soft. Feels like a dream.

u/LandonJS · 1 pointr/minimalism

Would you mind posting photos of your sleeping situation? I have been considering doing this for a long time, and now that I have a new place in a new city, I may take the plunge. I'm on an air mattress right now.
I've been looking at this:
But I also considered getting a buckwheat hull mattress that is self-assembling pods filled with hulls. It's about as much as a normal bed costs. OR something like this, which is a combo of a roll out mat with buckwheat hulls inside:

You might consider getting a memory foam topper for your bed in the interm. My grandmother's bed is about 20+ years old and has some painful areas. But the foam topper blunts most of these uncomfortable areas and makes her bed sleepable. Just something to consider. Also you might want to see about reducing the noise level in your room too. Thinks like computer towers, fans, etc. Can create a white noise that you ignore while awake but can affect your brain as you try to reach deep sleep.

Also FWIW I've heard that the brain's "sleep cycles" are 90 minutes long. That is once your asleep your brain takes about 45 minutes to hit it's most regenerative state, after which it slowly crawls back to "light" sleep. If you don't wake during light sleep it goes back for another deep cycle.

If a person is awoken during a deep cycle it's more jarring to the senses than waking up during the light side of the cycle. I am just relating what I've heard. Best of luck finding a better night's sleep. :)

u/GoorooDougie · 1 pointr/CX5

I've got a 2016.5 CX-5 Touring, just went and measured. From back hatch to end of center console is 67". With passenger seat pushed all the way forward, you can get to about 77". I've laid down diagonal (I'm 5'10', medium build) and it's doable, though not very comfortable. Better would probably be one of those tri-fold mattresses (link below), which fits perfectly if you move passenger seat full forward and lay down 60% of the back seat. I've laid the mattress in (it's 75" x 25" unfolded) and it fits great, feels comfy, but I haven't yet slept on it that way :)

u/kendamagic · 1 pointr/japan

keep in mind that the whole futon set will cost more than $250. there are other foldable floor mattresses available and if the price is a major issue, then you might as well go ahead and make mcgyver your own set out pieces that are more readily available in america.

u/RiotGrrrl585 · 1 pointr/vandwellers

I've got one of these coming in the mail. Can be folded as a kinda crappy chair, or all the way up.

u/liverwool · 1 pointr/AskUK

I'm with /u/LeahTheTard on this.

Our bed was awful for feeling the springs (my gf didn't have a problem so it might just be me having a princess and the pea moment), we got a memory foam topper in March and I have slept well ever since. It's one of the generic 3 inch thick toppers like this. My only complaint is that it gets quite warm in the Summer.

Edit: meant to reply to /u/garyomario, sorry!

Zinus 12" Queen Green Tea mattress, middle sagging after 6-8 months (did I get a bad mattress?)

Hello all. I suffer from a chronic sleep issue for over 10 years and also fibromyalgia like body pain and pressure points. Last December after finally being sick of the Sleep Number C2 queen I've had for a number of years, I extensively researched online and bought a Zinus 12" Green Tea Mattress, Queen ( At first, I had no complaints and it. However, within 6 months I definitely noticed that it's not kept it's firmness in the center middle and quickly sags in when I lay down for awhile.

I'm the exact opposite of what you'd call a heavy set person (Male 36, 5'11' and 74.8 kilograms) and am using the base of the old C2. If I move to the sides I can feel the firmness/support of what it originally was. I've even tried readded the 3" thick-4 pound foam topper I had bought for the Sleep Number ( to see if that would fix it, but it only pronounces it more.

I've been just dealing with it for the past few months but it's only getting worse I have to believe this isn't normal. I want to start a warranty claim with Zinus but I just cringe at having to go through all of this.

I'm just wondering, was I just unlucky and get a bad pick of a mattress? Had anyone else experienced this? Any and all comments & suggestions would be appreciated!

I went through something similar with my senior cat. It's tough.

If washing the beds is difficult you might try switching to blankets that better fit in the washing machine.

A waterproof mattress protector pad, the kind used for toddlers and incontinence, is pretty cheap, soaks up urine well, and is easily washed too. If her bed's flat it might work laid right on top; just get two so there's one on the bed or blankets while you wash the other.

If the floors need more protection you can cover them in cheap shower curtain liners ($2-$3/each.) Use mailing or duct tape to connect them. I also bought a dozen cheap towels and laid them over the liners to contain the urine and make cleanup easier, throwing towels in the washer and then wiping down the plastic with Lysol. This method might also allow you to move her to another room, one that's not as heavily trafficked as the kitchen.

In case you're not already doing so, you'll want to bathe her regularly. Wipe downs with warm washcloths help.

I wish I had more advice to offer. :(

u/OutOfMemory · 1 pointr/Vive

Get one of these things, man! I've been sleeping on one for months, surprisingly comfortable. Not even the firmest mattress I've ever been on. Then throw it in a closet when you're gaming.

u/HarambeTaughtMe · 1 pointr/carcamping

I haven’t tested it out besides when I was making sure it fit in my car, but I just bought this foam topper .

Not only does it fit my Honda HRV like a charm, but it also can fold up and be stored in a compact manner. Smells weird but that can be fixed with febreeze.

u/insyndication · 1 pointr/ChronicPain

Get an electric matress pad. It has helped me tremendously! There are much cheaper ones, i just grabbed a link for you

u/vmcreative · 0 pointsr/minimalism

Ive been sleeping on one of these trifold mattresses off and on for about three years. Theyre surprisingly comfortable with nothing else between them and the floor. The only issue is when I have someone over for the night (generally if I'm looking to hook up with someone I go over to their place so its not a huge issue... lol) I'm currently in the market to upgrade to a higher quality shikibuton, which can run pretty expensive for a nice onw but I think might be worth the investment.

u/fifteencat · 0 pointsr/minimalism

This was recently recommended at r/simpleliving. Can't vouch for it but it looks promising to me.
