One of my favorite parts of a long weekend is spending as much time in bed as I can. With quality R&R at the top of my list, making my bedroom the best it can be is of the highest importance. Depending on where you are, cool fall weather might seem like a faraway dream, but it’s never too early to start preparing your space for shorter, cooler days. For me, that means decking out my bedroom with charming curtains, a bed frame I love, and sheets that I think everyone should have at least one set of in their linen closet.

One more long weekend must-have that may not be top of mind is a cozy mattress. However, it doesn’t have to mean splurging on a whole new bed. A high-quality mattress topper can refresh your bed in a blink, and with Labor Day deals in full swing, you can find one for a steal. My favorite of the bunch is TEMPUR-Pedic’s TEMPUR-Adapt Topper, which you can snag for a whopping 40 percent off until Sept. 4.

If you’ve wanted to try a TEMPUR-Pedic mattress, but shied away from the cost, the TEMPUR-Adapt Topper is the next best thing. Because it uses the same materials found in their best-selling mattresses, you get a similar feel for a quarter of the price. As someone who’s slept many nights on the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Mattress, the comparison checks out! Additionally, when you consider that the TEMPUR-Adapt Topper can also be used separately from your bed as an added layer of comfort for a sleeper sofa or even the floor, you get a lot out of it for the price, especially since it’s on sale. This TEMPUR-Pedic topper is a great fit for those who prefer a soft-but-firm feel for their bed and don’t have the extra cash to shell out for a brand-new mattress.

Once opened, the TEMPUR-Adapt Topper can be slept on immediately, but it doesn’t settle into its full three-inch height for 24 hours so it’s best to give it time to expand. The Staytight Corner Straps will secure and stabilize the topper on your mattress, and while it’s not required, a good mattress protector will help to make it all feel like one piece. Another benefit of adding the mattress protector is that it will help to prolong the lifespan of your mattress and topper by keeping them safe from stains, mold, and general wear from everyday use. The TEMPUR-Adapt Topper is dust-mite and allergen-resistant, and even has a removable cover that you can toss into the washing machine to keep it looking as good as new.

Thanks to the topper’s additional 50 percent of TEMPUR material, you get more personalized support as it self-adjusts to your movement throughout the night. Additionally, if you tend to sleep hot (like me), there’s an option to add a cooling feature to keep the heat at bay. All in all, if hefty mattress prices have made you shy away from upgrading your bed in the near future, consider investing in a mattress topper instead. Based on the many that I’ve tried and tested, it doesn’t get much better than the TEMPUR-Adapt.
