GETTING 40 winks can be a costly business.
I was shocked to see that Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle spent a staggering £7,500 on his mattresses and bedding.
It’s enough to lose sleep over, if you ask me.
Check out these bargain bedroom savings instead . . .
FRAME IT: Metal bed frames are on trend right now and can add some real character to a room.
But instead of paying £134 for the Keswick cream frame at dunelm.com, swap it for the similar Leirvik white frame from Ikea for £99.
If you are after something a little more solid, try Ikea’s Malm white bed frame for £129 with room for underbed storage. B&M has a children’s single Malmo frame for just £36.
SAVING: £35 on the white frame
MATTRESS MATTERS: The Watson traditional spring mattress has great reviews and is currently on sale for £139, down from £279 at dreams.co.uk.
If there is nothing wrong with your mattress but you just need a little extra comfort, try a topper.
I like the Silentnight deep sleep mattress topper — it is on sale for £22.89, down from £30.99 at Amazon.
SAVING: £140 on the dreams.co.uk mattress
SHEET CRED: I like the yellow patterned double duvet set from Primark for £20, but it is actually cheaper to get the similar grey ochre tribal print set from Wilko for £14.
Grab a matching ochre fitted sheet for £4.99 from The Range.
Top tip: If you are finding it hard to sleep in the hot weather, dampen your sheets with a spray bottle or pop them in a plastic bag in the freezer for a few hours. It really works.
SAVING: £6 on the duvet set
DUVET DEALS: With students off to uni, there are great deals to be had — and you can snap one up, too.
Head to John Lewis for the 10.5 tog House by John Lewis duvet for £15. Or you could check out the duvet and pillow set at Argos for £14.
You will save yourself a pound and gain two pillows.
SAVING: £1 plus two pillows
THIS personalised hessian giraffe box photo frame is a great gift for new mums. Now £7.99 at homebargains.co.uk, down from £14.99.
ENJOY your caffeine fix for less with Nescafe Original, now £5 at The Co-op, reduced from £8.
NEED some tonic for your afternoon G&T? Instead of paying £1.91 for a 500ml bottle of Fever Tree at Tesco, try the Asda version. It costs just 35p a litre.
SAVE: £1.56 plus an extra 500ml of tonic
REMOVE those stains with a bottle of Vanish Gold gel, now £4, down from £8 at Wilko.
GET up to 70 per cent off beachwear online at accessorize.com.
