    Any recs for a cheaper mattress, around $600?
    I know what you mean. We got ours when we had 2 incomes and no kids!

    Have a look online. You can get good brands super cheap.

    Neither can I now - not even close! I'm dreading going shopping for one with a limited budget now.

    Keep an eye out for upsize type sales. So you pay for a single but get a Queen etc.

    Places like Harvey Norman do them.

    I'd also recommend checking out the ikea mattresses. For the price they are very good quality.

    Yes, and with a good quality mattress topper pad you could have a comfy bed for a bit less money.

    I think our current mattress is about 5 years old, though I still think of it as kind of new-ish (time flies!).

    We only spent $399 for a mattress from OMF (Original Mattress Factory). It's a pillow top and it's super comfortable and still feels new.

    I've never spent big bucks on a mattress. I don't know if I ever will either, considering the cheaper ones do the job and still last several years.

    It's all personal choice though.

    I just looked on the Ikea website.

    Their cheaper Queen matresses ($199) come with a 25 year guarantee!!

    Anyone got one of these?

    DF and I got a new mattress about 5 years ago for $2000 and it is the best thing we have ever bought. We will probably update it in about 2.5 years when we have to buy our daughter a bed. DS will also get a new mattress then too I think. He has a queen size bed to himself.
