Does your couch look like this picutre? Have your cushions gotten so saggy and lifeless over time? This couch is only 4 years old, and to be honest, we were considering buying a new one. The saggy couch looked awful and it was an even worse place to sit! But before we traded in the old couch, I did a little internet research and figured out how to fix it! So, I’m sharing with you, the information I found and tried and giving you the guide on how to rescue your saggy couch cushions!
This project is cheap and it’s quick! So get ready, here we go!

- 5-Pound Box of Poly-Fil Premium Stuffing
I got the 10-pound box. That’s WAY more than you need unless you have a bunch of projects planned that involve stuffing things!
You can get Poly-Fil stuffing a LOT of places. Look around for the best coupon always. Amazon always has the Poly-Fil, but often, you can do better going through a craft store and using a coupon for 50% off. Here’s some links to where I found the Poly-Fil:
- Joann Fabrics (Use a coupon!!)
- Michaels Craft Store (Use a coupon!!)
- Walmart (best price I’ve seen without a coupon! This is a 10-pound box – double the other listings for less $$)
For reference, this is what the box of Poly-Fil will look like:
Step 1: Start with your saggy couch cushions:
Ew. Right? And so uncomfortable!
Step 2: Unzip Your Cushions
Step 3: Add Poly-Fil Stuffing To the Cushions
Start adding in the Poly-Fil stuffing. I didn’t take any of the old stuffing out, I simply added in more stuffing. I started with the corners of the pillows and got them all perked up, and then filled the cushions until it was just slightly a struggle to get the cushion to zip back up.
Step 4: Give the Couch Cushions a Good Pat Down
Now that you have the stuffing in the cushion, just pat/punch/massage/squeeze the pillow until it looks nice and smooth and full.
And… BOOM… you are done. Super revitalized couch!!!
I didn’t do anything to our bottom cushions. They are just wrinkled, but otherwise, their stuffing was doing just fine. But here is a video if that’s not the case for you! These guys show you how to fix your bottom couch cushions!

- A 5-Pound box of Poly-Fil Premium Stuffing
- 1. Unzip your couch cushions.
- 2. Start adding in the Poly-Fil stuffing. I didn't take any of the old stuffing out, I simply added in more stuffing. I started with the corners of the pillows and got them all perked up, and then filled in the cushions until it was just slightly a struggle to get the cushion to zip back up.

Make sure you use a coupon to get the Poly-Fil stuffing! The price varies from store to store. The 5-pound box was more than what I needed but it was a MUCH better value than buying the 32-ounce bags of stuffing.
