I've been thinking about Japan a lot recently. I like the idea of taking my books home in Furoshiki bundles.

furoshiki: cloth wrapping a longer gift.

Furoshiki (pronounced foo row she kee) is a Japanese craft using double sided silk squares to wrap or carry anything!

To keep bed linens organized, fold each set -- pillowcases, top and fitted sheets -- and wrap with a 1 1/2-yard square of fabric inspired by Japanese furoshiki. Then, using like colors, coordinate the sets by room or by sheet size, and shelve them together. This method makes finding the linen set you need a snap.
