I am going to be moving and needing a bed soon. I may be moving into a very small room and want to maximize the space. Also, I don't have much money to spend on a bed. I don't mind firm surfaces or sleeping low to the ground; in fact I prefer these things. (but I can't really handle no cushioning at all and I don't want to sleep directly on the floor).
I am looking for ideas on inexpensive and minimalist beds or ideas for "making" a kind of bed like that. If you can point me in the direction of some kind of mattress-type cushion or give me some ideas for materials I can buy to create a sleeping area, that'd be great. I like back support and don't like things like air mattresses. Any ideas are great, whether they are links to things for sale, places to look, or ideas for materials to create a kind of bed or sleeping area.
I know this made sound a little vague so I am happy to answer questions as needed, but I am also open to many kinds of ideas so purposely left the question a little open).
