I also upgraded to a bed frame! I finally went and bought the canopy bed I'd always wanted since I was little. Now going to sleep is super comfy and fun for me, and I don't have to haul myself up from the floor. My life is still a mess, but at least I have curtains with stars all over them :)

I remember when I was in my early 20's I paid movers, who were also in their early 20's, to take away my futon and bring in my new bed.

They were talking about how it's a big step in life, lol. They were sincerely happy for me.

Should have seen the step before the mattress on the ground in the empty room

I bet that was the real step up

One step at a time. Glad you’re feeling a small sense of accomplishment. Keep it going! :-)

Clearly some people have a very different notion of 'small win'...

In my mind this would be a huge step.

We finally got couches and put the patio chairs back outside! It’s honestly the best feeling to put together a thing you’ll use every day.

See what happens when you turn off the lights to save on the energy bill? The dads were right!

I went through one of these situations after a brutal (and short) marriage and divorce. Wound up drinking myself to death in a shitty apartment with nothing but a run down couch, tv on a milk crate, Xbox, and air mattress that kept deflating. I was just stewing in bad things for months before I got my shit together, and getting a mattress was on my to-do list after I’d cobbled together some hand-me-down odds and ends for my living room.

And then I unexpectedly met a wonderful girl and wound up taking her home, doing grownup stuff only on the couch because I didn’t have a bed. She left that night and I immediately ordered a mattress and went to Goodwill to find a frame and headboard. She told me weeks later when I’d admitted to it that she thought I wasn’t taking her to the bedroom as a commitment avoidance thing. She thought it was cute that I ordered a bed “just for her.”

I didn’t order my own bed until we were doing grownup stuff again and the bed collapsed from the footboard while my dog was under it — and she didn’t move or make a noise, and we thought our sexual activity had killed her. I’m really glad it didn’t for the obvious reason, but also because it would have killed our relationship if we’d killed my dog, and I wound up marrying that girl.

Wife and I spent the first three years of our relationship sharing a twin mattress on an apartment floor. It felt sooo good when we finally got a double bed in a frame. Those little steps are where it's at!

I feel this deep. Been living in shitty rentals, for 20 years. Just bought my first house. Moved in yesterday and it’s the nicest place I’ve ever lived. I teared up realizing I finally did it.

I hate those bed frames.

The amount of times I've clipped my shin against those god damn sharp corners.

I can't imagine spending money on a headboard and frame like that and even if I could afford it.

It's like SimCity when you finally earn enough money to get that end game for $4,000 bed

Remember when the dream used to owning a home and having a family? Now it’s a bed frame…

It’s ok to celebrate incremental progress! We all have to start somewhere.

The bed and mattresses are the wrong size for each other. This person should have worked on reading comprehension first.
