FBO: 'Get a Good Mattress'

If you think about it, we spend about 40% of our lives on our mattress. If you have 35 more years, that's 14 years total -- on that dumpy mattress of yours. Back problems aside, there's plain comfort. The FBO believes in not skimping when it comes to mattress purchase.

Here are some tips:

* Lots of different mattress companies create the same thing, using slightly different variations of coil spring and pillow-top features, and 'plush' and 'ultra plush' and 'firm cushion' names -- all to confuse you, don't worry too much: just pick what's comfortable
* Don't buy a mattress on the Internet, only try one out in person
* When you try one out, lie down on the mattress for 15 minutes in the position you normally sleep
* Expect to spent $1000 to $1500, maybe more. Too much? If you're going to spend 14 years on it, that works out to $1.37 per week of use in 14 years (if you spend $1000).
