Not Martha


Furbish put together some good links about how to buy a new mattress, and I have a couple I’ve been saving up: Slate on how to cut through the marketing gimmicks of Sealy, Serta, and the rest, and Ask Metafilter has many threads on this, including lots of talk about memory foam mattresses. The basics as far as I remember – coil count doesn’t necessarily matter, the same mattress will be sold under a different name in different shops, don’t buy a pillow top, and box springs are unnecessary except as a matter of preference.

While we’re talking bedding there are pages with pictures on how to fold a fitted sheet at the web sites of both Target and, of course, Martha Stewart.
