How to Replace Your Old mattress with a New mattress
scroll down to see how you can pay less than $400 for a Memory foam (queen) mattress!
When George and I first got married we inherited my family’s old guest bedroom mattress– We were so young and limber that we didn’t need a brand new mattress and slept great on the hand me down.
Fast forward 8 years.
After two pregnancies, three kids and countless backaches later–we really needed a new mattress. I think when you are pregnant, you feel every single little imperfection with an old mattress. Everything hurts and you probably end up finding somewhere else in the house to sleep where you find comfort (at least, that was for me!) Then you have a baby and you feel 100 x’s better then suddenly you can’t afford a brand-spanking-new mattress!
Update 1/29/2016: We have had this mattress for 9 months and STILL love it! We are in the market for a smaller mattress for our guest room and are probably going to purchase one with our tax refund.
So here we are– we need a NEW mattress! I have to admit, I don’t want just any mattress either. I cherish my sleep and comfort. Now I want a mattress that will help me sleep better. We’ve looked into mattress stores– a lot of them are too expensive. I want to sleep well, not sleep broke!
When you are ready to replace your mattress– I HIGHLY suggest sitting down and making bullet points about what you want in a mattress. That way, you aren’t suckered into things you do need.
Here is our wish list:
- memory or gel layer
- Queen or larger
- less than $600
- delivered for free
and since we are trying to be more natural — eco-friendly would be awesome also!
George calls me the Google queen.. and there is a good reason for that. I usually almost find a solution with google– and you better bet that I found a solution. We found GREAT affordable queen mattresses right HERE.
The mattresses are Gel/memory foam and most are LESS than $600 + FREE shipping!!
Shop for a mattress ONLINE? Yes, I know! It’s a scary thing.. but sales guys at mattress stores are just as scary. I really wanted to avoid the hassle of dealing with salespeople.. It makes me feel like I’ll just be pressured to shop for things. The thing that caught my eye was that these mattresses have gel or memory foam and are under $600! That is literally impossible to find at the furniture store.
Then, I noticed that their mattresses are warranted against manufacturing defects for 10 years AND if you aren’t happy after 60 days trial they will refund your money and pay for the return shipping. No questions asked.
How could we NOT try this? I checked all of our wishlist items– including the Eco-friendly part! woot!
So, we took the plunge and got THIS mattress. It’s only $389 + FREE shipping and is gel/memory foam! I won’t lie– I was pretty nervous to order online.. then about 4 days later, we got this huge box! (even the dogs were like “what the heck!)
The mattress is vacuumed sealed and rolled– it fit perfectly in the box!
It took about 3 hours for it to reach its FULL size. We just popped it right onto our existing box spring and waited for it to raise to fit it in our bed.
It’s an 8 inch, so it’s on the short side. It is a Gel-Memory foam (if you want the normal height, I suggest the 12-inch memory-gel mattress HERE it is only $599 + FREE shipping) and it is pretty dang awesome! The gel is great for “hot” sleepers… It helps keep you cool and molds to your body. Sometimes memory foam stays MOLDED to your body and you get stuck with that permanent mold—but not this one. It goes back to a flat surface.
I’m pretty shocked but we LOVE it!
Even better, this is eco-friendly. So not only are we helping the environment–we’re saving money. Here are some great facts about these mattresses:
I love our mattress so much and the comfort it offers when I sleep on it. I reached out to the company to get you a couple of discounts if you want to replace your old mattresses (one awesome advantage of being a blogger! 😉 )

So when you are looking to replace your old mattress without going broke:
1. Make a LIST of what you want in a mattress before you do your research
2. only buy what you can afford–be careful in financing a mattress
3. NEVER pay for delivery. You are already giving them your money (just saying…)
4. Buy a mattress that will last– you shouldn’t have to replace your mattress for another 10 years.
Disclosure: I was provided with a zzzsleep mattress to blog about what I thought about it. I wasn’t compensated for it and would never blog about something I didn’t feel strongly about. 🙂 We needed an affordable mattress with comfort and I wanted to let you know about an awesome one.
