SPLURGE: Did you know that if you sleep 7-8 hours a night, you'll spend about 3,000 hours a year in bed? That's a lot of time in one spot. In fact, you'll probably spend more time on a mattress then anywhere else over your lifetime. Choosing a mattress is one of the most important decisions you will make when furnishing your bedroom. A poor quality mattress can result in a lack of sleep, sore muscles and any number of health issues. If you can only afford to splurge in one area - it should be your mattress.

SAVE: Purchase a mattress protector! Once you've taken the time to find the perfect mattress, protect your investment! Mattress protectors are usually fairly inexpensive and will protect from spills and stains, keeping your mattress in great shape for much longer.
