Save money on your mattresses and make them more thrift friendly by making them last as long as possible.  Flip them over, and also rotate them head to toe on a regular basis.  Some people flip them as often as once a week.  It is estimated that when you flip your mattress on a regular basis you extend its life 5-6 years.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional tips to save money on mattresses.

 

- Don't set on the edge of your bed. 
 
- Do not buy used mattresses.  They will not last long, and in some cases may be infested with bugs.
 
- Buy mattresses with at least a 10 year guarantee.
 
- Do not let your kids jump on the bed.
