There are few things in our millennial lives that are more important than catching enough zzzs. Finding the right bed for our varying sleep needs can prove challenging — especially when we're talking about shelling out some serious dolla dolla bills, y'all. Enter the bed in a box, a convenience that seems to be increasing in popularity *and* affordability. Scroll on and find your way to better rest in a boxed bed without breaking the bank.
Try going green in the bedroom with an Avocado ($1400) organic mattress that's produced using sustainably harvested latex rubber foam (instead of memory foam) for better temperature control. It's also made with moisture-wicking New Zealand wool that is both anti-microbial and dust mite resistant.
Why we love it: Safe and non-toxic, environmentally friendly, optional pillow top add-on
The downside: On the costlier side
If you love that sinking foam feeling when curling up with your main squeeze, then Novosbed ($1000) may just make the right impression (see what we did there?!).

Why we love it: Three firmness options, 120-night trial, 15-year warranty, good for all sleeping positions

Now you can have the best of *both* worlds with a Tomorrow Sleep ($890) mattress that has coils and foam. The company also offers a Tomorrow Sleeptracker Monitor that analyzes your cycles and makes personalized suggestions to get a more restful night.

The downside: Lacks the enveloping foam effect
Made with non-toxic, food-grade materials, the Purple ($1000) mattress is actually purple (which we love, obvi) and is designed to cool overall body temp. Unlike traditional memory foam, it bounces back to its original shape and is cushiony without being too soft.

The downside: Not great for very hot sleepers or foam lovers
If buying a new bed via mail makes you a little squeamish, then you should def check out Nectar ($670). Not only does this company offer a one-year trial, but they also guarantee their medium-firm mattress forever.
Why we love it: One-year trial, lifetime warranty, plush, *and* supportive
The downside: Long ship-out date
