The $1200 Kit For Moving In TogetherPublished: January 24, 2019
Moving in together is a major investment: emotionally, romantically, and—perhaps most significantly—financially. Whatever funds you’ll save by sharing rent will be nullified by the cost of furnishing a kitchen with more than a hot plate and finding a mattress you both like. We sourced everything you need for sharing a bedroom without breaking the bank.
4Sleep Boxed Mattress
Why Buy: 4Sleep, founded by a married couple who struggled for years to find their perfect mattress, is designed with couples in mind. The four layers of memory foam each serve a different purpose: temperature regulation, motion control, pressure point relief, and maintenance of proper alignment. Though a $900.00 price tag may seem steep, sleeping night after night on a cheaper (and flimsier) mattress will end up costing you that much in physiotherapy and chiropractor fees. A good mattress is worth it.
Big Red Rooster White Noise Machine
Why Buy: This works great as a standard white noise machine, but offers five additional sounds if you want to experiment. It’s not beautiful, but it is compact enough to tuck under the bed or inside your closet.
Magnolia Organics Dream Collection Sheet Set
Why Buy: Soft, breathable, and sustainably produced, these sheets are well-suited to people with sensitive skin and those who sleep hot. Expert and customer reviews applaud their long-term durability and color retention.
UrPower Essential Oil Diffuser
Why Buy: By releasing essential oils throughout your room, this diffuser eliminates the need for a candle. The mist adds moisture to dry rooms.
Rianne S Duo Vibe
Why Buy: Insertable vibrator? Check. Cock ring? Check. This dual-purpose vibrator offers a lot of “bang” (see what we did there?) for your buck.
Klipsch Bookshelf Speakers
Why Buy: American legacy brand Klipsch has been crafting speakers, headphones, and audio devices for over 70 years. This small-but-mighty pair fills a room with rich, balanced sound without overwhelming the space.
