Does this make us "trashy"?

 We (my husband and I) don't have a bed. We have a mattress on the floor. We can't afford box springs or a bed frame. I have looked for free ones, but thats hard to come by with a king-side. Our matress is king size. (I got it on the fly at a 2nd hand store for cheap when I didn't have a bed) I put sheets on it and make it, but its just a mattress.

Does that make us trashy?

To be honest like if I came over and saw it I would be like omg wtf, BUT I wouldnt put u down. I mean u said u cant afford it, so if a mattress is all u have, so be it. At least ur not on the floor. Also, some ppl find it to be more comfy with just the mattress. Hey ... at least u dont have junk under ur bed! LMAO!

 Nope...Makes you frugal...Hubby and I did the same for a year til we got sorted...I hated it though....(We acctually slept on the FLOOR for 3 weeks....*gasp*....

(But to me,....there is a difference between adults going without...and your kids going without...)
