Staying home seems like the smartest thing to do these days, so you might as well enjoy being there, right? That's why I've rounded up a collection of home upgrades under $35 from Amazon that'll take your place straight to the next level. So pull up a chair and join me for some retail therapy.

In my opinion, the bed is the heart of the home (you do, after all, spend approximately eight hours there each and every night), so I'm all about this mattress topper that adds an extra layer of cloud-like goodness to your sleeping routine. Then build on that with a couple of these extraordinarily soft and supportive pillows that have earned 22,000 five-star Amazon reviews, and you're all set to hibernate in luxury.

In fact, Amazon is packed with upgrades for just about every inch of your space, so you actually might not mind spending so much time there.
