More important than how long your bedding will last or how comfortable you are, is the safety of purchasing new mattresses and putting them on old box springs. The risk is that the older ones may not meet flammability standards and thereby put you more at risk even if your bedding does meet the standards. If you have gone to various mattress stores, and you have been encouraged at each one to purchase both bedding and box springs, it is still up to you.
Platform beds are increasingly popular today. The way they are made does not necessitate having a box spring. Mattress stores suggest that a box spring is much stronger than the wood frames of the past. This may or may not mean that your platform bed has inadequate support. That is really up to you. It is important that you do everything you can to help your bedding last. It is also important to do all you can to stay comfortable as you sleep. It may be that purchasing a new box spring every time you purchase mattresses will save you in the end because it may extend the life of your bed.
If you simply cannot afford it, then that is all there is to it. If you think yours do not meet the standard, then you can get rid of them, but you will want some form of support. If you cannot afford box springs, wood supports are an option even though they may not be as strong. If you choose not to buy box springs, you should check and make sure any bedding you purchase are still under warranty. Since the mattress stores believe it helps mattresses to last, they may only let the warranty work if you purchase both together. It may depend on the store, so you should ask.
If all else fails then the best solution is to measure the width and length of the bed. Use these measurements and cut out a plywood deck. I would recommend cutting them into 2 or 3 smaller pieces. Cutting one large plywood deck can be difficult, especially if you have a larger size like a king or queen. Once again though check with your manufacturers guide. The flat foundation could possibly make the mattress less comfortable.
