Official Packing Organizer of bookofjoe


What can I say?

The world is coming to me, at long last.

From the website:

    Mesh Cube* Packing Organizers

    Here's our solution to staying organized and making airport inspections painless.

    Mesh Cubes have nylon mesh on the top and sides for easy viewing.

    Great for socks, hosiery, lingeries, T-shirts and more.

    Set of 3 includes 2 Small (10" x 7" x 4") and 1 Large (13" x 10" x 4").


Besides Green, they also come in Black or Red.


* The word "cube" is inaccurate: a cube, by definition, has six identical faces.

This solid has three opposing pairs of identical faces.

To be precise, it is a special case of a parallelepiped, a solid with six faces each of which is a parallelogram.

The special case here being that each parallelogram is a rectangle.

Just thought you might be interested... I loved the word "parallelepiped" when I learned it back in the day, perhaps in junior high school, yet I don't think I've ever heard it used in speech nor seen it in print or online since.

That's now been remedied.

I thought "packing" means you take everything you need for 3 days and cart it around in 3 large duffle bags. Lightbulbs; check. Toilet Paper; check. Floss; check. Car Keys/glasses; time to turn around....
