Less than 80 bucks in boxes. Plywood over the boxes optional depending on containers selected. I now have boards over the tops, you could also skip the tops and go open boxes, ply atop. Yes it is a hassle getting to things but a lot less hassle than having all that junk strewn about. wish each box were full of cash.

Step 1: Just the Right Boxes

Oh one can use "found" milk crates just abut any box with some strength will do. Some will require plywood on top. These tough boxes found at Costco and many hardware chains were ideal for my needs. 8 OF THEM ARE EXACTLY QUEEN SIZE!!!!!!!!

Step 2: Final Step

Place mattress atop boxes of choice.
