    Invest in a down comforter and you won’t believe how warm you will be during the winter season. That is all you will need on your bed when you sleep at night. You can really turn down the heat and stay warm. Like you said, the duvet cover is a huge pillow case that will keep the down comforter clean. I’ve never had any problem with it shifting.

    USPS has a book rate, $3.00. Isn’t that great!

    A duvet is a cover for a down blanket. I love love love down blankets. I use mine year round. If you have feather alergies they also make some comparable down alternative blankets. I think Ikea sells down and down alternative at a decent price. Costco also sells down blankets sometimes. You can also find them everywhere else – JC Penny; Macys; Bed, Bath & Beyond; etc.
