Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Blanket Storage Ideas?
Since I've got a boarder moving in this weekend, I'm losing some storage space. I'd like to store blankets under beds, but under-bed plastic storage bins don't hold much, and are rather pricey. Plastic bags would work, I suppose, but wouldn't look as tidy. Anybody have any cheap and simple ideas?

I haven't seen them in a long time -- plastic has taken over everything, and costs much more. I miss them. They didn't stand up to being shoved in and out from under kids' beds in kid fashion, but the ones in my room have held up, and I'm no Methodical Mary or Neat Nancy. So if you can still find those, that might work.
Walmart does have zipper-type underbed blanket bags -- more durable and less untidy than regular plastic bags, and presumably cheaper than boxes (though I haven't actually checked the price.) They're similar to the bags that blankets come in when you buy them, but I think you can get them large enough to hold more than one blanket.

I guess you could pretend you were Martha Stewart and tie the folded blankets with ribbons and store them sans container.
