Raise a bed without a bedframe?

I want to get the box spring and mattress off the floor without buying a bed frame.

My partner and I share a hand-me-down queen mattress and a wooden box spring. We're sick of sleeping so close to the floor, but we don't have the disposable money to buy a bed frame at this moment. Are four cinder blocks a viable alternative for raising the box spring and mattress off the floor, or would that put too much pressure on the center of the box spring? How can we get our bed higher (and possibly make some storage space beneath) while spending little to no money?
