Default How can I make my futon more comfortable?

I have a futon but the pad is too thin, so it feels like you are sitting on a set of monkey bars (like from a playground).

I don't want to buy a pad, and I was wondering it there was anything I could use to make it so the bars can't be felt when you sit down.

It seems like there should be a product for this, but I have searched on google for futon and everything I can think of.

The product you're thinking of is a thicker pad.

Or, get another thin, cheap one and double up. Or plywood.

go to wallmart and buy one of those egg carton shaped foams. They sell those for beds. That should help for a while. Save up for an 8 inch mattress then.

You always eat McDonald's everyday for a year. That should put enough added girth to your sissy butt that you wouldn't feel the bars.

I slept on a futon for almost 2 years, and near the end, it started getting the same way, you could feel the slats. However, I love futon mattresses, so when my wife and I moved, we got a queen sized platform bed with a top of the line, 12" pocket spring futon mattress. It's the comfiest mattress ever.

Decent pads are like $100, not happening on my budget.

I sleep on/have been sleeping on a futon for the past 7 years or so. I keep an old comforter folded up underneath it.

For very little $$ go to Home Depot, and have them cut a piece of plywood for you (.5" is fine) to fit under the mattress where you sit. I did this to mine, and it worked fine...world of difference.

Many nights of horseplay for that plank...

Edit:
Use the rest of the plywood for something creative

I still use the chicken wire but now I have a tempur-pedic pad on top. Nice and comfy.
