  • Yeah, making your bed every morning is imperative because it gives you something that you've accomplished at the beginning of your day which leads to higher self esteem the rest of the day. Also, it's more inviting when you get ready to go to bed at night which helps you sleep better. I ALWAYS make my bed every morning; even though I don't sleep it much; with my newborn and all. But I still make it up when hubby wakes.

  • I make my bed as soon as I'm out of it, mainly because I want the kids to do the same.

  • My mom is this way. Her house is always very nice and presentable too. I was forced to make my bed every day growing up. I don't think I've made my bed in 15 years now. My DH makes the bed when he changes the sheets for me. But I don't think that counts. LOL If you like the bed made good for you.

  • My mom is like that, she can't lay down in a messy bed. I am the complete opposite, I only make my bed when we have company, a messy bed is very comforting to me for some reason.

  • I never make the bed except when I've washed the sheets. Or if company is coming over.

  • I make mine every morning for the same reasons Keisha posted.

  • Same as Christina and lilysmom - I only make the bed when I change the sheets or if I think someone is coming over. And even then it depends on who. But we don't have a pretty bed - we cosleep so I have my blanket and hubby has his, and our bed doesn't look much better made than unmade. Someday we will have a pretty bed, just not now :)

  • I do it because usually there's laundry to do and when it comes out of the dryer that's where I dump it and fold it. If it's not made it drives me

  • I do make my bed every day, but since I use a quilt it's just a flip of the quilt and adjustment of the pillows and done.
