I bought THIS mattress a few months ago. I was suffering from lower back pain every day, and my girlfriend suggested that it might be from sleeping on too soft of a mattress. My back pain was significantly reduced in as little as a few days (not completely gone, but a large part of that has to do with how much lifting I do at work). Strongly recommend.
Amazon. This changed my life.
i purchased it on amazon. [link]
It's lasted a year and a half and it's $231. That's already better time/$ than you got after the last one and it's not noticeably different than day 1.
You can get a new super, super comfy mattress for very cheap.
We have this one: [link]
My sister visited and we gave her our bed recently, she commented on how comfy it was.
We are on our second one bc the first one was for our van, second is for our apartment.
I would encourage you to consider looking at this from a creative perspective.
It's an important need that you have a good mattress, so you can be well rested.
It's also important that you use this windfall in the best way for your future selves.
Imagine for a second if your family member, who has a very clean house, told you that they were upgrading from their very nice, comfy mattress to an even fancier, comfier mattress, because they just want extra fanciness.
They ask you, do you want our old clean, good, nice, but not super fancy mattress? I would say yes. I don't know what you would say.
People sell brand new mattresses every single day. Rich people upgrade for stupid reasons.
You may be thinking to yourself, I would never buy or sleep on a used mattress, that's disgusting.
Well, would you ever sleep on a bed in a hotel, or in an Airbnb? If you were visiting friends, would you sleep on a guest bed? Or even in someone else's bed, if the sheets and linens were all very clean?
When you buy a foam mattress online from Amazon or another company, it comes w/ a satisfaction guarantee. If decide you don't want it, and were to ask about returning it, they tell you to keep it, and send your money back. These mattresses get sold on craigslist.
If I were you, definitely get a good mattress if you need it. It sounds like you do.
But, I encourage you to be creative, strategic, and open minded about filling this need.
Maybe you can use $100 to get a used, clean, comfortable mattress, and put the other 84% into your emergnecy fund.
A night's sleep from a comfy mattress is good, and important. Sound sleep because of a well padded emergency fund is better.
