Easy one this. Go to IKEA and buy a cheap FUTON matress. Take it home and roll it up into a swiss-roll shape (doesnt have to be ultra-tightly rolled up btw, just not too loose)

use a couple of bungee straps or cord to hold the swiss-roll shape together. Stand the rolled-up Futon in the corner verticaly - hey-presto!... cheap bass trap!

Futons are made of layered cotton wadding, and are very dense inside. Rolled up into a thick tube shape, their absorbtion is very good and they are deep enuff to capture fairly low bass wavelengths of around 500hz (680 mm)
