We’ve all been there – you walk into a mattress store, and you want to get out as quick as you can.  The salesman is leering over your shoulder, trying to grab a cigarette every 10 minutes while you peruse the store aimlessly.  The truth of the matter is that if you walk into a mattress store and you don’t know what you want, you are destined to fail.

This is a time in your life when you really need to commit to making yourself happy.  When you walk around that mattress store for the first time, you need to really understand how it can benefit you.  Think about your future without back pain, without tossing and turning, and without that nasty mattress smell that accompanies a bad purchase.  There is plenty of opportunity for you to change your life with this purchase, if only you take the time to find one that really suits your sleep preferences.  I would recommend visiting Slumber Sage at his Instagram or PearlTrees account as a starting point for seeing which types of mattresses will best suit you.

The one thing that we know is that you’re looking for real value when you buy the mattress.  Check out this video which talks about some of the best mattresses you can purchase for the least amount of money.

Deals in the mattress industry are definitely not easy to find, but if you do your research ahead of time, there is opportunity to walk out of a winner.  These days a lot of the startups making memory foam are really offering a good deal, so if memory foam is something that you are interested in exploring, start with the direct to consumer mattress companies.

Other options include latex foam and standard coil mattresses, both of which suit different types of sleepers.  Do your research on each of these types, and be armed with a ton of questions to make your mattress salesman really earn his commission.
