Someone asked me this question and I thought it might be fun to ask others -
Do you or do you not make the bed before you leave the house? Comments are welcome.

I make all the beds and open blinds/shades before I leave the house.

I make the bed before I leave the bedroom every weekday morning.

On weekends I make the bed after I have my morning coffee.

That's my routine exactly!
However, I heard someone say, "Who do you think is going to come over, the bedroom police?"

I see no point in making the bed or open blinds (why bother nobody but hubby, I and Jesse will be in bedroom). Only time bed is made completely is when I wash bedding. Sheets get pulled tight at bed time at night.

I grew up in a family where you were ordered to make bed before you got to leave the bedroom, I refuse to live like that and never saw the point of it.

When I get out of bed in the morning I fling the quilt up over the pillows, just to keep the dog hair off them (they're flannel). If people are coming over, I arrange the quilt neatly, straightening it and retucking the end in if necessary.

About 15 years ago, I made the New Year's resolution to make my bed every day. It's the only New Year's resolution I've ever kept!

During the winter/cooler times of the year I will sometimes make the bed.

In the summer, no! It's too hot. I would end up flat out on the floor if I did.

I open all the blinds every morning.

Yes, always, it cuts down on the dog hair on the sheets/pillows so I only have to shake out the cover

Same here. NO ONE sees the bedroom except for me and the dogs.

As someone else said, I have NEVER SEEN THE POINT of "making" the bed.

I must confess that when I fling the quilt it doesn't always cover my hubby's side of the bed fully.

My bed must be made before Bandit is aloud loose in my room. If it is not made he quickly digs under all the blankets, pillows and sheets. Everything becomes untucked and thrown on the floor, including the fitted sheets, in a matter of seconds.


If the bed is made, he lays quietly on it and just does a few tumbles.

I try to at least pull the covers up b/c my 3 cats sleep on the bed during the day and I don't like hair in the sheets. If people are coming over, I make it nice and arrange the pillows.

i was too ashamed to select "no, never" but honestly - it has nothing to do with leaving the house or not... i only make my bed every few days when i'm cleaning my room because a perfectly made bed makes my room "complete". during the week i dont make it daily because i usually return to it several times a day. working from home and having a laptop doesnt help the matter either. when company is over however, its always made and thats because i live in a free standing loft and all of upstairs is my bedroom... if anyone has to come up for any reason - boom - theres my bed.
