Newfangled Internet bed companies.

Casper, Tuft and Needle, Leesa, and undoubtedly others.
I have seen countless ads on YouTube by the late King of Random, Bob of I Like to Make Stuff, and others. Bob has the best ads because he talks in a picture-in-picture while you can still watch him work on his project.

I bought a mattress off Amazon for $237.82. It came in a lightweight box, expanded quickly, did not smell, and was a mattress.

What do you expect?

I was happy to have a twin XL, the first mattress that I have ever had more than three inches longer than I am laying on it.

Normal mattresses have thick and tough covers. This reminded me of sweatshirt material. I took off the cover and there were two layers of foam, but it seemed to work.

However, I feel there is more to my tossing and turning than insomnia, is my mattress impeding my ability to sleep?

I should have gone to bed earlier last night, but I started tossing and turning two hours before I needed to wake up. My brother wakes up every single morning at four or five and lays down on the couch, so I got up and slept on his bed, which Mom bought from Big Lots.

It was amazing how much more comfortable it was! I think that when I have a chance I will visit Big Lots and quite possibly have them order me another twin XL. Their cheapest is $210 with 4.5 stars!

Nod by Tuft and Needle is rated 4.3 stars. Both have about five hundred reviews: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07JV...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

How many of you have ordered vacuum-sealed mattresses and how have they worked for you?

I don't have any problems with insomnia.

I grew up sleeping on a straw mat on a hard packed dirt floor. And we slept well! But we worked hard all day so that straw mat was a welcome site!

I simply follow the same work-sleep pattern. Work your butt off all day so you can sleep the sleep of the dead. In the morning, that hard pack is your alarm clock.

Just got our first expanding mattress by mail. It doesn't seem particularly comfortable to me, but sleep quality has more to do with routine and having a consciousness that can rest easily than coil count. I'm capable of sleeping pretty soundly on carpet, on a couch, in a tent, in a hammock or in bed.
