I have to have a top sheet. James couldn't care less, but I don't like the feel of the blanket right against me, I have to feel that cool sheet. When it is hot, I think the top sheet makes me feel cooler (sometimes all I use is the top sheet), but when it is cold, I think it helps hold the heat from the blankets in better.

I make it every day....always did when I was a kid, my mom insisted on it. There was a few years when I let it go when my own kids were very small, but not the case any longer. The rooms in my home are small and unkempt beds just makes the mess seem more unmanageable.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I dont make it as soon as I get out, but usually when I go to get ready after a shower.
DH does not make it. ever.
Sometimes I make it right before I get in for the night.... call me OCD but I can't get in an unmade bed and sleep.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

In the same vein, how many here use a top sheet? I always do for my bed but my kids just use a fitted bottom sheet and a comforter on top. Of course, the comforter has a cover that gets washed regularly. What about ya'll?

Same here

Ok.. you win the prize!!! One thing to make a bed in the morning, but to make it up right before you retire, borderline crazy!!! I'm joking!!!

I enjoy reading your responses! I know a few of you mentioned the feel of fresh sheets - I could not agree more!!!

I don't know anyone who would want to get into a dirty bed, so I think everyone likes fresh sheets.

I make my bed every morning. Of course, there's different levels of "made"
I have a waterbed. I pull the sheet and comforter up over everything, no tucking. The cat likes to sleep under the covers during the day and he can get under the covers easier That's my story and I'm sticking to it
Give us this day our daily bacon.

never saw this thread.
I never used to.
didn't see the point, just gonna get back in later right?
one day the neighbor kid came over to help us do eggs for Easter. she ended up eating the whole can or smoked oysters but that's a different subject.
anyway, her mom came to retrieve her, and we started talking.
somehow the subject of bed making came up.
let me know she'd been in my house when I didn't know it.
but, after wondering about that, I reheard her comment.
"yea, you don't make your bed...." I thought, ''what?'' how dare her say that, how dare her know that, how dare her embarrass me and bring that to my attention and the attention of her mother too, who's other name was Mrs. Clean?
From that day forward, as soon as I get out of bed, no matter the time of day even 4:00 am, I get out and make it. Husband even gives me a hard time cause there are tons of pillows on it and he'll say, "honey, I'm just gonna have to take them all off, it's okay to make the bed but leave off the pillows." my thoughts are, the bed's not made unless the pillows, all 839 of them, are in place.
I even make the kids beds when I'm there at their houses. No, really...........

reminds me, I gotta change our sheets today....thanks for the reminder

I make mine every day. If I don't work, I make it while cleaning. If I'm working, I make it before I go to bed, lol. I HAVE to have sheets and blankets straight. DH thinks I'm psychotic with this and LOVES to throw the covers off right after I make it, lol JERK!! LOL

As I leave in the AM (About 4:45 AM) there are two labs and DW in the bed. I would get in trouble if I made it. When I get home it is usually made.


One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.
