Arg.......

Ok, it's is 5:33 am right now, and im waking up when i went to bed around 3 am. I am not happy. I have to work in an hour and need to get ready. But I'm so tired. And Im also now in alot of pain. I hate my bed. Its old, and ratty, and a hand-me-down bed, so its like really old. And I'm hardly sleeping cause of it. But I dont have the money to go buy a new one.

I really need a new one though.

^^ Why don´t you try to get one on Ebay... or sell some old stuff so you can buy one from IKEA... I think they have such cheap beds there. The bed calls Dalselv has a very low price.. and it´s made out of wood and If you want you can paint it. I had that bed a few years ago and it was really nice to sleep in it ;)

yeh you don't need a new bed, you could just get a new matress, aren't there like end of season/old stock shops near you, there's one near ours that sells really cheap carpet cut offs and matresses really cheap but they're still good quality I think they just got the stock cheap because it didn't sell in the designated time at other shops??? How about some new pillows, they're not THAT expensive and pillows under your back and neck for the support maybe?

If you still can't afford it, turn your matress over, beat it and hover/vacuum it.

I agree with Ebay. Does andrew still live with you? If he does, maybe you can switch matresses from his parents house. Like, you take his bed and he takes yours, since he'll be sleeping in HIS [I.e. your new one] anyway?

Ikea has a good shiping prize.. here in germany the shiping cost comply with the usually Price for the thing you bought.
Don´t know if its the same in your country but you should take a look to find out maybe it´s worth to check it out ;)

I have found a cost ship estimulator for Canada ;)

and that is the site with the beds ;)

In Ebay there is also a button where you can find people in the same city who want to sell their bed.. Or maybe you take a look in the newspaper.. There are sometimes People who sell some cheap. ones.
Or take a look on the boards in supermarkets... Sometimes you find good things there too ;)

Michelle: I love my futon! It's really comfy and being on the floor means I can literally roll out of bed in the morning or when I want to get stuff on the other side of the room haha. It was expensive though, I got it from a proper futon shop not from somewhere like Argos so it was a few hundred pounds, but it's lasted ages without showing any wear and tear.


Jasmin: You can get memory foam matress topper things, and the memory foam sort of moulds to the shape of your body when you're lying on it. It's meant to be nice and comfy andreally good for your posture. If you got one of those then you wouldn't have to get a new bed or matress, and it'll probably be a lot cheaper as well (don't quote me on that, I have no idea how much they cost, I'm just making a guess!).
Or have you got a FreeCycle group in your local area? If you have, post a wants notice on there and see if anyone can help you out. Someone might have a perfectly good bed/matress they don't want anymore waiting to be given a new home Happy
