Alert: Memorial Day is rolling around very soon. I can only assume you’re more than likely one of those people who uses the three day weekend to chill by the lake alongside friends or attend some sort of barbecue. But if you’re an expert shopper (like myself) you know the holiday offers one major benefit: Discounts. On. Everything. Not only does the holiday unofficially kick off the beginning of all the summer shenanigans, but TBH it also jumpstarts our credit cards into a full-force-ahead mode. After this, you’ll be running out of pages on your passport and start putting on all the clothes you’ve never worn before—or whatever Drake said.
But aside from taking advantage of all of our favorite fashion and beauty discount hauls, the more expensive (arguably even more important) items in our day-to-day life (like mattresses, furniture, and appliances) also drop in price thanks to Memorial Day. While you might be thinking, “Eh, my mattress is good, I’ll just wait until the next holiday to buy one,” I’d like to remind you of the feeling of coming home incredibly late with your feet pulsing after a long night out and all you want to do is plop in your bed for the next 15 hours. Yep, if you ask me, your mattress is kinda the most important essential if you want to do summer the right way. And thanks to the early Saatva Memorial Day sale, you don’t even have to wait until the end of May to refresh your space.
When you have a bad sleep, everything else in your life goes bad as well. Your mornings drag on even more and you’ll be taking your coffee with a side of back pain (UMM, no thanks). Not only is it a major mood killer for the indefinite future, but an uncomfy mattress will only make you feel less energized and unwilling to spend your days outside. Instead, you’ll be turning right back to that horrid mattress in an effort to get some beauty rest when the truth is, no amount of extra sleep will help you; and you honestly just need to get rid of that thing.

Saatva mattresses are on of the internet’s favorite online mattress retailers, and although its Memorial Day deals haven’t *officially* started just yet, the brand got ahead of the game and slashed the prices on some of their best-selling items early—which is only a bonus for us.
If you’re buying a new mattress, you might want to pick up a few extra accessories to really start your summer on a high note. Listen, it’s going to be hot and if you have some stuffy temperature-retaining sheets it’s going to be a nightmare waking up in a puddle of sweat regularly. It’s definitely not sexy, and when it comes to sleeping in the summertime—it should be.
