Would you ever buy a used mattress to save money?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s TRY 98.3 social dilemma came from Timothy. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime. Inflation is crazy right now and we’re all looking to save money. My wife and I try to save every penny we can. Anyway, we need a new mattress. Well, yesterday on Facebook a friend posted that she had a very firm and expensive Posturepedic mattress for sale if anyone was interested. I showed my wife the ad and told her it was a great way to save money on the mattress we needed. She thought I was crazy. She said she could never sleep on a used mattress and she didn’t care about the price. I do not understand. We sleep on hotel mattresses all the time and they are used by many different people. At least we know this one was used by a friend of ours. How can I convince her to save the money and buy the used one? To help

Well, Timothy is right in his logic, but I’m still with his wife. I don’t think I can buy a used mattress. There are plenty of places these days to get reasonably priced mattresses, so sorry Timothy, no used mattresses for me either.

What do you think? Let me know on the TRY the Facebook page.
