Your Mattress is Putting You in Debt

There are many areas of our homes that cost us money. There’s the lights, devices, and other electronic equipment left on when not in use, which drives up the energy bill. There’s the air conditioning that’s being used when all that’s needed is an open window and a fan. Then there’s the refrigerator full of food that will go bad because you eat out too much or over buy at the grocery store.

Did you know that your mattress can also be a great thief of your money? Of course, this all depends on the age of your mattress but if you are looking at a bed that is well over ten years old, there are ample ways this mattress is costing you money in places you didn’t even think to look.

Sneezing?

Dust mites live in all our homes and they particularly love camping out in our mattresses. For those of us that have allergies these little guys can cause a great deal of disturbance when we are trying to sleep. More than $17,000,000 were spent by Americans on health care to reduce the swelling of their nasal passages and sinuses in 2010.

Consider replacing your mattress to a type or brand that has been proven to reduce the amount of dust mites you will come in contact with. Take these steps to ease both your allergies and your medical bills. Memory foam and latex are great contenders while coiled seems to attract the most mites due to the spaces available inside. If you want to know more about latex mattresses, check out these reviews for the best latex mattresses on the market.

Pain?

This is another area of expense that could be greatly reduced with a new mattress. Old mattresses tend to lose their form or get the coils misshapen due to natural wear and tear.  You either get poked in the back with the misshapen coils or you don’t get the support that you need when you sleep. Your shoulder and hips end up hurting if not supported well. A new mattress will help with your pressure points and provide your back and neck with the support.

Our suggestion is to hit a bedding store and try out the different kinds of mattresses available. There are innerspring or coil mattresses, latex, memory foam, and hybrids. Each has its good points and others have their not so savory characteristics.

There are firm mattresses, soft mattresses, and those that fall into the Goldilocks area of just right. Only you can tell what‘s right for you. Still, getting a new mattress means less pain on pressure point areas, less trips to the doctor, avoiding physical therapy, and less pain killers to pay for when the hip starts hurting.

With these ailments on the run you’ll find that you can save money which can be used to pay off any debt.

Up late?

Is your mattress keeping you up at night? If you are sneezing through the night or experiencing a great deal of pain in your hips, shoulders, neck, or back, then there is another way this mattress is costing you money other than medical bills. This would be in your lack of productivity.

Think about it for a moment. If you are not getting the sleep you need to be your best self the next day then you are most likely not performing at your peak when working. If your productivity lacks, over time, this can cost you money in sales, wages, or even a job if it got out of control. Of course, we a realize that few people out there would let their lack of sleep be the cause of their unemployment but we also know that things can get out of our hands easily.

Still sick?

An old mattress can wreak havoc on your immune system. This falls right back to the inability to get a good night’s sleep on an old mattress. A lack of sleep leads to a weakened immune system. This means you will get sick more often and we’ve already illustrated how health problems cost money and can be reduced with the purchase of a new mattress.

Gaining weight?

Have you noticed how your jeans or slacks are harder to button as of late? This could be the result of sleeping on an old mattress. Folks who sleep more, eat less. If you aren’t sleeping well and gaining weight this could lead to diet plans and the need to purchase new clothes. Losing weight can cost money, which might be a direct result of your bad mattress.

These are just a few problems with an old mattress and we hate to let this problem cost you more and more money. Mattresses are one of those areas where you need to invest money to save money, which is always a great idea especially where our health is concerned.
