A comfortable bed may not be flashy like a car or clothes, but it is one of the best things money can buy.
I sleep somewhere between 5-7 hours on an average night - and those 5-7 hours are awesome. A lot of times it is less than that. So, when I do sleep, it is really important that it counts and that I wake up rested in the morning.
One of the best ways to do this is to buy a sweet bed. I bought a king size with a giant pillow top (which basically means it is ultra-comfy), and, even though I sleep in pretty much the exact same spot every night, it hasn't made an indention at all. Ending my night in my bed is an awesome way to end the day.
I'm not saying I have the best bed ever - just that I can't wait to get back to my bed after a long road trip/vacation because it is better than almost any other bed I've ever been in.
When you sleep, the worst thing that can happen is that you wake up sore in the morning (or even worse, in the middle of the night) and feeling generally unrested. While there can be other factors, your bed plays a significant factor in that. Looking back over a lot of the things I have purchased, my bed is easily one of the best purchases I have ever made because I never have these feelings.
Make no mistake, a nice bed can be spendy, but it is one of the better investments you can make and I guarantee you this rule doesn't end with me. Just ask anyone that has purchased a nice bed and you'll get the same sentiment.
Pro tip: Buy a king-size bed as long as your room can fit it. It is one decision you will never, ever regret.
