This is for the rest of you.
I like my bed to be made, and therefore almost every day I make it; 29 of 30 days OK maybe closer to 59 of 60 days.
The reason I like my bed made? The bed takes up a lot of space in the room, and if it's made it looks like my room is a lot cleaner than it probably really is. So here are my tips at how to quickly make your bed.
We'll start at the beginning; a very good place to start. When you read you begin with A, B, C. When you make your bed you begin with ZZZZZ. Sorry, I couldn't resist. Seriously though, I start in my bed.
This is the view from my bed. I did have to get up and get my camera, but I do start in the bed. Here's some of the disheveled covers. And if you are the first one to get up in the morning, making the bed is a good excuse to crawl back under the covers for a legitimate reason after the other person gets up.
This picture is just to prove that we don't sleep without moving all night.
You'll start making the bed on the opposite side of where you normally sleep, but stay on your normal side. If you sleep in the middle, scoot to one side. Pull the sheet and first blanket flat and smooth so that it looks like this:
We have a bit of a strange set up for our bed (a former waterbed frame), so the top sheet actually gets folded back on itself and 'hidden' under the remaining layers of blankets during the day, vs. hanging down over the sides.
Then start with the next layers, until you get to the top layer. It wont look perfect just yet, but you are more than half way home.
Now start working your feet to get your side straightened out, pulling, tugging gently on the sheet and first blanket; consider them a pair. No sleeping any extra now. Slide out of the bed.
Now that you are out of the bed, finish straightening out that sheet and first blankey layer. Finish off with the remaining 5-6 layers. Then walk around and 'pretty up' the top layer on both sides of the bed, and viola' you're finished!
No judgement if you want that stuff, but you might think about how often that's what keeps you from making your bed.
Did you think this was a weak topic? Well I've got some equally riveting ideas coming up. Exciting things like how to clean sweep a room, or how to quickly serve ice cream, or make a smoothie.
I'm happy to hear ideas you might have or want me to explore/investigate.
Perhaps I lost most of you and you've fallen asleep at the computer. Crawl into bed tonight and think about it in the morning.
