Trying to save off-topic questions with a new less-broad question

In reference to:

http://lifehacks.stackexchange.com/questions/289/how-to-wake-up-quickly
http://lifehacks.stackexchange.com/questions/239/what-are-some-waking-up-methods-for-non-morning-person

Both on-hold as "too-broad", I was thinking of trying to cook up a less-broad more direct question.

Something along the lines of:

#Waking up in the morning when standard alarms fail

I tend to sleep through alarm clocks is there a reliable way to wake myself up in the morning?

I've tried setting the alarm to beep, music, talk radio, various volumes, using multiple alarms and so forth, but I still seem to be able to sleep through the worst of them. When they do wake me I tend to slap the snooze button and go back to sleep, without even remembering that I've done it.

I'm not interested in half baked ideas like pouring water on the bed, or buying expensive specialty alarms.

So... is there a safe, reliable way to wake myself up without spending much money?

I just wanted to check my thinking before asking a question and having another question on the topic closed.

So is this any better or does it need more work?
