You don’t usually think of an online mattress retailer as an essential business. Since they don’t have physical locations that can be shut down or that people may not feel comfortable visiting a mattress store during the coronavirus.
Well, the issue is more on the production side. Today Nolah announced that, “today, we are happy to announce that all our manufacturing partners and warehouses have been deemed essential businesses that are not at risk of being shut down during lockdowns!”
That means they can continue to ship and supply as usual and without disruptions. Considering many mattress companies are made in China or partly made in China or another country, it may be slower to get mattresses made right now.
Made in the USA
But Nolah is 100% made in the USA. In Elkhart, Indiana to be exact. Here’s a screenshot of a conversation I had with them:
Nolah Mattress Sale
In addition to being open and shipping, Nolah is offer historically low prices right now.
Get $458 off your Nolah mattress!
It’s up to $300 off mattresses + 2x FREE AirFiber™ pillows ($158 value for free) 😄
We think Nolah is an excellent choice and one of the most underrated mattresses on the market They offer a great value on a quality mattress.
Compare Nolah Mattresses
Nolah has two models – a 10″ and a 12″. If you want a soft or a firm mattress, get the 12″ – it’s flippable so you can choose which side of the mattress to sleep on (top or bottom). It has an impressive lifetime warranty too. And an organic cotton cover. Each has a 120 night trial, which is a little above standard for the industry.
The newest trend in bed in a box mattress brands is the weighted blanket. Popular for years, it seems like almost every bed in a box mattress brand either has one or is coming out with one. We wanted to list all of your options in one place to help you make an informed decision. Most weighted blankets are filled with glass beads.
Today’s weighted blankets are as much a lifestyle item as they are a blanket. You can find something for all ages and tastes. Check out our chart below to help you find the best weighted blanket for you!
Top 3 Weighted Blanket Benefits
Helps Alleviate Anxiety & Stress
The weight feels like a big hug, to help you relax, calm, and minimize anxiety. Some claim that it can increase the feel good and calming hormones – serotonin and melatonin.
Promotes Restful Sleep
When a weighted blanket reduces stress it has the effect of helping you get a better quality sleep. Sleep more deeply and peacefully.
Reduce Sensory Processing Disorder
Many children or adults with autism or other processing issues love how it can help them focus and reduce anxiety.
How Much Should Your Blanket Weight?
When looking for a weighted blanket for comfort, think about the weight that you need. The recommendations are based on how much you weight. Here’s a general rule:
Kids: 10% of body weight plus 1-2lbs.
Adults: 10% of ideal body weight.

If you like more pressure then buy a heavier blanket. Here’s a chart that shows how to figure out the right amount of weight for you. Note, we may earn a commission when you shop through our links.
Today Bear Mattress announced their newest product – a weighted blanket. It comes in one size and weight – 15 lbs. It’s one piece with a soft microfiber cover. Choose from three beautiful neutral colors: light gray, charcoal or cream. We love the cream.
These are the things we look at when looking at which weighted blanket to buy.
Consider the cover – what’s is the fabric? The Bear is a soft microfiber material.
Is it two pieces or one? One piece (no separate duvet type cover).
Is it washable? Yes, but only by hand or dry clean.
Does the weighted blanket come in more than one size? Bear offers this more as a one-size throw option.
Weight and Beads
Does the weighed blanket come in more than one weight? The weight that you should choose depends on your height and weight. Bear’s blanket is available in one weight that is generally good for anyone (except children over the age of 3).
It’s both stylish and modern and comes in three colors. Weighted blankets like this are a home decor item and are as much for the couch as for bed. So ask yourself if this blanket would look nice in your living room or on your favorite chair.
Sleep Trial and Warranty
Some brands don’t offer a sleep trial on blankets – likely because they’re heavy to ship for the price of the product. Bear has a generous 100 day sleep trial and a 1 year warranty.
Price and Financing
This blanket is on par with the cost of most weighted blankets.
Bear Weighted Blanket Details
Here are some specs so you can learn more about this weighted blanket:

With the level of stress a lot of us in this country feel right now with coronavirus, kids out of school for weeks if not months and the uncertainty, it’s a good time to curl up under a weighted blanket. They feel like someone is giving you a big hug – and right now a lot of us can’t get closer than 6 feet apart.
2019 seemed like the year that CBD everything hit its highest popularity. Get it – it got high?? However, the joke’s not accurate because CBD oil doesn’t contain psychoactive properties. Rather, it’s a chemical compound in marijuana and it has a long history of being used as medicine. There are no psychoactive compounds in this part of the plant (the part that makes you high is called THC).
The idea is that CBD helps you get better sleep by lessening restlessness, pain, and stress.
At the most recent mattress industry trade show in Vegas there were several new products touting CBD in mattresses and bedding.
Here are Some Examples of CBD Products Related to Mattresses and Sleep
Therapedic’s new b-Calm mattress line which has CBD-infused cover and foam.
MLILY’s Mprove CBD-Infused Mattress, an organic hybrid mattress with CBD-infused fabric.

How Often Should you Wash your Sheets?
There’s no definitive rule on how often to wash your sheets. However, think about this. You probably wear clothes once and wash them. It seems logical to wash the sheets at least every week. Exactly how often depends on your situation. However, unofficial studies have show that college students NEVER wash their sheets. So they may go 4 years or so (unless a parent steps in). And if you eat in bed, drink in bed or otherwise utilize your bed to its full capacity, you need to wash your sheets more often.
Those who have skin issues or night sweats may have to change sheets every night. When someone in your family is sick or has the flu it’s important to wash and disinfect the sheets after they are well. Be sure to wash separately from other laundry.
Fitted Sheets can be a Nightmare to Change
Here’s a fun, lighthearted look at how standard fitted sheets can make your life miserable…
The Problem with Washing your Sheets
The issue with washing your sheets isn’t pulling off all the bedding. That part isn’t difficult to do. It’s making the bed again afterwards. And possibly the worst part is getting all the corners on the bed when it comes to the fitted sheet. If you don’t secure them you have a problem with them popping off and your sheets will get all bunched up. Sometimes you’re in a tight room and it’s difficult to get around on all sides of the bed.
QuickZip is a great concept because the fitted part of the sheets stay on the bed (you can wash them less frequently). The middle part zips off and on so that you don’t need to fuss with the corners. Plus, if you get their starter pack it has 2 fitted sheets so that you can remove one sheet and put the next one on. So you don’t have to wait to remake the bed or sleep without sheets in case they’re not dry in time.
The same goes for crib sheets. You’re more likely to have more frequent changes because babies and diapers…and it usually involves removing the whole mattress. But again, with QuickZip you can simply unzip the top (babies don’t use top sheets). This makes it so much quicker and easier to change soiled sheets, especially in the middle of the night by otherwise worn out parents.
Crib sheets come in 15 designs which you can mix or match (and are so cute). Designed to fit all standard crib mattresses (52” x 27” wide, 5” to 7” thick); Compatible with all crib flat mattress pads; 100% Cotton.
For kids who are potty training, special needs or otherwise need a faster way to change the sheets, get the QuickZip Fitted Sheet Set. It has a wraparound base & 1 zip-on sheet.
Ideal for Daybeds
If you have a daybed with a high back and sides you know how difficult it is to change the fitted sheets on this bed. QuickZip makes changing the bottom sheet surface so much easier. you don’t feel or see the heavy-duty plastic zipper since it’s covered by a flap of cotton. They have a neat and tidy look.
QuickZip Sheets in Navy Percale
Sheet Material , Colors and Sizes
Choose from the more silky sateen or the cotton percale sheets. We have the cotton percale (requested and sent to us by the company) and they’re a little thicker and feel so well made.
Sizes include: twin, twin xl, full, full deep, queen, king
Crisp, cool and light percale weave with a matte finish. 100% cotton, 200 thread count.
Made in Israel
We recommend the premium which comes with the base and 2 sheets if you don’t sleep with a top sheet. Otherwise we recommend the euro set (if you have a duvet). You can order sheets, pillowcases and duvets separately or together.
If you or someone in your household has the flu or other sickness, it’s important to clean and disinfect their mattress after they recover. However, doing so can be difficult, if not impossible.
Your mattress can be a breeding ground for bacteria. In addition, it harbors dust mites, dead skin, dirt, hair, spilled food or liquids and more.
The Washabelle mattress can be disassembled in layers and put in the washing machine to clean and disinfect it.
Available in adult, children’s sizes (twin) which is especially helpful if bedwetting is an issue, and a pet bed.
There may not be another mattress with so much charm and well, cuteness. However, beyond its adorably good looks, the Washabelle mattress has a practical application—it’s easy to clean. The cover is washable. Unzip the bed and remove each layer. Then throw it into the washing machine (and next, the dryer). The base foam layer is the only layer that can’t be washed. However, it’s protected by the zip out breathable waterproof layer that’s on top of it.
Washabelle has two lightweight washable foam layers that have their own cover and a breathable waterproof zip out liner. There’s a foam base inside the mattress cover and it zips up with a durable brass zipper. The washable foam, liner and cover can be tossed right into the washer and dryer.

Washable Mattress that’s Ideal for Bed Wetters and Pets
So if you have a bedwetter, don’t like using a mattress protector, or are a bit of a clean freak like me – this is your mattress. Pets can be the worst too, because you can’t escape the hair that gets into the bed. And allergies are a real concern. Good thing Washabelle has a pet bed!
There’s no way you can cram your current mattress into a washing machine and they don’t come apart. If you do put the memory foam into the wash, it would be like a big sponge and probably never dry out, while developing a mold problem.
So don’t just wash the sheets (you are washing them – right?!), wash your bed!

The Yaasa Weighted Blanket combines the popularity of a weighted blanket with the style of a chunky knit throw – it looks amazing on a bed or furniture!
Instead of beads to add weight, which can shift and move around, theirs uses polypropylene fibers.
Cover made of 100% natural cotton – in two colors: cream or grey.
Choose from 15 or 20 lb weight.
The Yaasa Weighted Blanket
Many boxed brand mattresses have or are coming out with weighted blankets. Yaasa’s take on the trend is unique in that the blanket isn’t for comfort alone—it’s very stylish too. In fact, you can’t tell that it’s a weighted blanket until you put it around you and feel the calming effect it has on your frayed nerves. That means it looks great on your couch but also helps with stress.
The weight of the blanket provides a warm, gentle pressure that mimics the feeling of being held. This comforting pressure immediately induces calm and contentment.
What we love is that The Yaasa Weighted Blanket offers the benefits of a weighted blanket, without the heat, as the knitted cotton adds breathability. Unboxers will love the natural cotton, however, it will need to be dry cleaned.
You can choose between the 15 or 20 lb version. The 20 lb option is also an additional 5 inches wide.
Length 72″ x Width 40″
Length 72″ x Width 45″
The Yaasa Weighted Blanket comes with a 1-year warranty.
The Yaasa Weighted Blankets ship from Santa Barbara, California using FedEX ground and is free.
Yaasa Weighted Blanket Cost
This is a higher end product. The 15 lb version is $249 and the 20 lb is $269. Interest free financing is available which would make payments to just over $60 a month with no credit score check.
Need an old mattress, box springs, bed frame or adjustable bed hauled away? When you get a new mattress, the biggest question most people ask is, what to do with the old one. Most of the time it’s a lot of work to get rid of your old mattress.
First, you’ve got get it out of the house. And mattresses are usually heavy, especially a king size. It can be over 100 lbs. Then you have to fit your mattress and box springs into your vehicle (you may need a truck for that). Last, you need to take it to the nearest dump and pay the fee.
I’ve learned the hard way that the dump isn’t a place I want to go to again. Ours makes you get out of the vehicle and dump out your mattress onto the piles of garbage all by yourself. So there’s more lifting but it’s slippery and harder to move. Plus, it’s the grossest, dirtiest smelliest place to be. They should’ve told us to wear waders! I had to remove my shoes to get back in the car.
I recommend using a junk removal service like LoadUp, to save yourself the hassle and trauma of having to do it yourself. LoadUp is available in over 170 cities nationwide, with guaranteed up front pricing that’s 20% cheaper than most competitors and without any need for a sales person to visit first to haggle over annoying estimates. No sales visit, no add-on fees.
They literally just show up and haul away your junk so you don’t have to. LoadUp’s junk removal specialists will pick up the items from inside your home by appointment or from the curb if you can’t be there. So convenient!

Until recently I didn’t know very much about LoadUp. But they employ locals to pick up and haul away junk. Like Uber, people use their own vehicles to do that. Here are some important facts about LoadUp:

Curbside Pick Up
You Don’t Have to Be Home or Wait for Someone to Pick up your Junk
But perhaps my favorite part is that LoadUp will either pick up items from your home OR they offer curbside pick up. So if you’re busy or don’t want to have to be home for the pick up, you can schedule online and put your items on your curb. No waiting around and everything is out of your house. Their app will notify you when the driver is on their way and when they pick it up. They use real time GPS so you know when they arrive and when your items are picked up.
LoadUp will Pick Up Sleeper Sofas, Adjustable Beds and More
Besides electronics, furniture, exercise equipment or other junk, LoadUp will remove your mattress, box springs, old bed frames, adjustable beds and sleeper sofas.
If you’ve ever tried to move an adjustable bed or sleeper sofa you can appreciate just how heavy and difficult they are to move. They’re usually big, awkward and VERY HEAVY.
Mattresses and beds are brutal on your back!
So save yourself the work and let the pros handle mattress removal for you!!
Layla Sleep just came out with a hybrid – the Layla Hybrid Mattress. The new mattress stays true to brand with these two features – copper infused memory foam and that it has flippable firmness™. One side is soft (4/10) and the other is firm (7/10). Contrast that with a mattress like Idle that is flippable but you can order it with one half of the mattress medium and one half of the mattress firm.
Individually wrapped coils and memory foam make it a hybrid. There are also handles to help you with rotating and flipping the bed. And a zip off cover for easy cleaning.
We appreciate how transparent Layla is in the construction of this mattress – they tell you the density of the foam. How the mattress is constructed gives you a clue to how it will feel. Notice that the soft side has a lot more cushioning than the firm side. Compare that there’s 4.5 inches of memory foam on the soft side and 2.5 inches of memory foam on the firm side.
