How to stop a bed hogger + other ways to improve your sleep &/or stop others ruining your nights sleep

1) Get technical with “This is your side & this is my side”

With a tape measure and a laser – They can’t argue with science!

2) They may get the hint…with these sheets

Buy the bedding and just forget it happens


3) Double up on bedding

Buy & use two duvets at once (1 per person) – This trick we use and it’s awesome! Enough bedding to wrap yourself in + extra warmth on the cold nights.
Scientifically women do feel the cold more than men so you may have to give them a break if they constantly nick the duvet!

4) Upgrade your bed

King size at least – A double bed is not big enough all the time in our opinion

5) Remember other issues might be causing the frustration first

If you’re woken by snoring you may then feel more agitated by having less of the bed

‘Sleepy People’ asked 2000 people what annoyed them the most in bed and here were the results:annoy

6) Put something between you

Buy an XL bumper (a little extreme, even for us). For a more budget solution you could try a pillow between the two of you, however, the pillow idea isn’t great long term as it’s quite large and will give you both less room.

7) Get a new bed with two sides

Create a Hybrid Bed (half hard and half soft or any other combination for increased personalised comfort) – or do a DIY job with one of these £40 devices


8) Turn up /down the heat

Grab a decent heated mattress protector from Amazon / John Lewis or look at some silk sheets for breathability / cooling etc.

9) Never share alarm clocks

Always use two alarms if you get up at different times. Most of us use our mobiles for alarms these days but if you want something more subtle you can pick up vibrating alarms which should ensure your partner stays fast asleep.

10) A gentle elbow to the ribs normally works well



Be a financial rockstar and share this with your friends, family and co-workers to maximise savings:

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
