    If you don't want to spend the money on a non-toxic latex mattress and don't want a futon, then sleep on the floor on a mat.

    Either the floor or a nice latex mattress. The only bad thing about the floor is I have to stay on my back. I'm mostly a back sleeper, but rolling around is impossible.

    I spent a while sleeping on the floor, mostly on a sleeping bag or on a duvet/quilt. Then I built myself a platform and put the duvet on that. I'm a front/side sleeper so saggy mattresses are not good. I bought a foam/memory foam mattress but it would kill my back if I was reading before sleeping. The standard mattress I'm using now is okay, but when I go back to my own house I think I'll be going back to the thinner pad, or maybe as someone suggested, a memory foam mattress topper.

    If you go with latex it will cost yes, and maybe be sweaty in the summer. Unless good ventilation.

    My friend is just like you and she slept on the floor w/ cheap foam pad for years -- but she was happily divorced and not looking for a mate.

    But I LOVE LOVE the firm and healthy option of a wool topper. You don't have to get this expensive. But if you get it from a good company they will take it back and re-crimp/re-stuff it for you when it eventually compresses over the years.

    But even better than that is their all cotton mattress pad. I do not know how any of us lived on that plastic feeling mattress pads of our early years, the one you throw in the wash? But everyone I've given this to for a gift, etc. has raved it's the best part about their bed. Regardless of whats under it.

    Can you tell I'm enthused about this subject?

    I recently got a Tempurpedic mattress with an adjustable bed frame. According to the sales guy, the adjustable frame helps with circulation as you are not laying flat on your back. My boyfriend has also stopped snoring, and I am amazed to say that I am not waking up in the middle of the night anymore, or waking up with soreness/pain. Best $2300 I've ever spent.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.
