Finding the right mattress can be stressful, exhausting and expensive. This is one purchase you do not want to take lightly; after all you will be using it every night for years. Additionally, the right mattress can make you feel better. By getting a full night’s sleep you will be ready to face the day with alertness and fewer aches and pains. However, finding a good night’s sleep can be expensive, $2000 or more expensive, but if you shop right you can find a mattress that will meet your needs for far less. My advice is to shop around, as you will find there are countless stores and hundreds of mattresses. Find out what you like first. Do you like memory foam, a pillow top or a traditional spring mattress? It is hard to know if you like it just by looking, so some companies will allow you to try the mattress risk free for thirty days. This will literally give you a better feel for the mattress. Finally, once you narrowed down the type of mattress you desire, you can shop for the right price and buy smart.
