I don't have time to. But, I HAVE to make it before I lay down at night. Ticks DH off so badly!! I just can't stand to get into a messed up bed. It all has to be swept smooth and top folded back just right too. I have a few quirks that drive my husband completely nuts. LOL

Sort of,I have down comforters summer and heavier winter ones.So I do my bed like they do in Germany no top sheet no blankets no bed spread you just cover down comforter with a duvet cover.I put on two duvet covers.Just straighten out bed and thats it.I also got rid of the extra pillows and shams.It's the best sleep to me no getting the top sheet and blankets getting all twisted up.Plus the down keeps you warm and cool depending on your body temp.

Wow, I'm surprised at all the non-bedmakers! I thought everyone out of college made their beds daily!

Takes less than a minute to make it in the morning. So much nicer to come home to, to look at any time of day, and to climb into at night.

Yes, I always make the bed. I cannot stand getting into bed if the covers are all over the place. I cant sleep if the sheets are pulled out, and the comforter not in place.

it would be interesting to see if we have any Ex-Military lads on here, and how they answer :)

Paul was retired Navy but he had me to make the bed for the last 52 years...

Now?...it doesn't always get made every day. It just isn't that important anymore.

Well, JMCrew, that explains why everytime I go through Germany and overnight in Frankfurt (3 different hotels now) that they arrange their beds that way----I have to admit that it is very comfortable and I always get a good night's rest!

Made every day; bottom sheets pulled straight, NO wrinkles. Duvets and pillows shaken and replaced. Can't bear to see the beds unmade and in a mess. Since DH had his op and needs the adjustable bed we have 2 singles and I hate it after 39 years sharing a double. The adjustable has been wonderful for him though so I can't grudge him that can I?

Hardly ever I must admit. The only times that it gets made is if company comes over, and at night i do a quick straighten.
