New Mattress Substitute

I desperately needed a new mattress and could not afford one. I had a piece of 1/2 inch plywood (not press board) cut to the exact size of my mattress and placed it in between the mattress and box spring. My mattress was almost as good as new and only cost $15.00 for the plywood.

We have a double bed and use an old ping pong table top under ours. (01/04/2005)

We needed a new mattress set, checked out prices ranging around $1000 and I about fainted. We kept the old set and topped with a memory foam, just like new! Now we can actually get a good night's sleep for under $100. (08/20/2006)
