Look for sales in the ads; call some stores. Where I live there is a store called something like Hotel Liquidators, they sell used furniture, mattresses, etc. from hotels. From what different people have told me hotels are required to change their mattresses before they start to show wear. The store here also sells new items, but I haven't checked the price. Look on Craigs List, freecycle, etc. A lot also depends on what you want in a mattress.

I wouldn't recommend buying a used mattress right now, when bedbugs are so rampant. Just keep your eyes open for a good sale, or do what I am considering - buy a platform bed of some sort.


Then you only need a mattress and not a boxspring which would save some money. Something like this, for example:

A matress isn't something I'd suggest anyone skimp on. However, being poor myself, I understand about pinching every penny for all you're worth. I'd say check your most reputable thrift stores. We prefer our local St Vincent de Paul thrift shop, but I'm sure you could find something at your local Goodwill store, too. Keep your sleep habits and firmness preference in mind as you shop; you know what you want in a matress. Once you buy, consider buying a plastic matress cover and put it on before the matress comes in the house. If you'd prefer not to, please consider pre-treating for any hidden critters before you bring the matress indoors. Hope you find the perfect matress!
