A couple of year ago, I produced a very large sack that was not only comfortable, but people loved it.  There was only one problem with this sack, It was a bit too big.  With college coming quick I needed something that would still have the same qualities only a bit smaller.  We have to remember college dorms aren't the biggest things in the world.  The basic shape is a 4' by 3.5' cylinder with 60lbs of foam.  This sack was modeled off of the classic Movie Sac.  The benefits of making your own sack is saving money and making it exactly how you want it!  This sack seats about 2 and is perfect for you and your special someone.

You can buy a Cozy Sack on Amazon cheaper than making this one lol but nice instructable!
I've seen bean bag beans at K-mart. I'm not sure if they still have them, but you can check.
could you use packing peanuts instead of foam?
you could but i don't recommend it. Packing peanuts deflate over time and wear out, also when you sit on the sack the noise would be awful! My recommendation would be shredded poly foam there's a link on my instructable.
This is awesome and looks super comfy. Perfect for any dorm room!
It's so comfy you have no idea. I always fall asleep when i do home work in it though haha no joke!
