  • Either I make it or my fiance makes it at some point during the day. It's just messy if you don't, it's nice to see a made bed when you go into your bedroom.

  • We have never made our bed in the 3 year of living together. No one looks in our bedroom so there really isn't a point so long as my blankets and pillows are on my side of the bed and his blankets and pillows are on his side of the bed. we are good!

  • I don't make mine when I get up, partly because my husband works nights so he's in it all day.

    Growing up, my parents always made their bed right before going to sleep. It seemed silly to me (I was never made to make my bed). But I do enjoy a made bed more than a messy bed, and if the covers are too messy, I will make the bed before going to bed.

  • lol I make it after feeding my daughter cause it's easier to fold laundry on there and then it's nice and made for the night. I feel like I get all tangled up if I don't make it! your not crazy at all!!

  • It definitely feels better to slide into a made bed, but sometimes it just doesn't happen at our house. My mom is so into making the bed, that if my dad wakes up to go to the bathroom at three o'clock in the morning, she'll make the bed before he gets back in.
