QOTD 2/7

How often do you make your bed?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA ROFL :ROFL:

I make my bed about every 3 months when I finally get our bedroom clean.

About 4-5 days a week.

Oh Sandra! Thank you for making me feel better! I can't believe people wash their sheets once a week...or more!

Our bedding is just a top sheet and a duvet. I have taken to 'closing it up' every day lately because DD likes to lay up there sometimes and I rather her be on top of the duvet. I wouldn't call that 'making it' as I really just pull the sheet and duvet up.

As for how often I was the bedding....perhaps we shouldn't go there. Blum 3 I have no real schedule for that and I'm a bit of a slacker...so it's pretty much whenever I remember...which isn't even once a month I don't think. Terrible, I know. Sad I need a maid.

You girls are funny Smile

I make my bed every day because I'm a spaz about it. Maybe once or twice a month I'll let it go on a Saturday or something, but I feel so much better when my bed's made (and it feels so much better getting INTO a made bed IMO although DH usually beats me).

AFA washing, I change mine minimum every other week, but I aim to do it weekly for ours and the kids' sheets too. I'm really weird about bed sheets apparently.

If you consider throwing the quilt on top and throwing the pillows back to a side, then most days, but it doesn't really look neat and tidy.

Also, don't look at the rest of the room, that's a different story. I can't get DS to put away his clothes so I have gone on strike. Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to notice or care.

Don't even ask me how often I wash the sheets. You clean-freaks amaze me.

The bed will get fresh sheets tomorrow because my IL's are coming to stay (in our bedroom). The last time they got clean sheets was probably when my IL's visited in mid-December. LOL.

I make the bed maybe once or twice a month? Since we sleep on opposite schedules I don't see the point in having it made for only a few hours.

I clean the sheets usually every other week (cause I am at the laundromat anyways) or once month (usually when I decide to do a load of laundry at my dads or sisters house instead of going to the laundromat).

People actually make their beds????!!!

I make my bed when I wash my sheets. Which I won't say how often that is (or isn't) in my case.

HA HA HA! SO glad I'm not the only one!

I got a clothes line last summer and I actually washed the sheets more then because I was so loving my clothes line and sheets are the best on there!

The kids beds don't get made...although DS actually made his this morning!! I've been trying to pull up the sheet/comforter everyday, but that's a new thing. The kids' sheets get washed every week, my bed is every 2/3 weeks. It's been more before, but that's the frequency now.

Ba ha ha! ROFL

I never used to do it but pushed myself to get into the habit probably 5 years ago and now hate NOT having it done. Don't worry, my friends make fun of me too...

I have been washing sheets a lot... Pregnancy leads to eating in bed and then I get crumbs and need to wash!

i make my bed any time I fold clothes. I always fold on my bed so I like to have a nice smooth workspace. So it depends on how often I get around to folding clothes!

We don't use top sheets. Only fitted and a duvet - so it just gets pulled up. Twice/week when my cleaning lady comes and does it Smile And sheets get washed once/week when my cleaning lady does it. My house was a wreck at the beginning of the pregnancy when I was too sick to do anything - and DH was at his wits end trying to clean up and take care of DD and work - so we got more help! She's a godsend!

I make up my bed a few times a week. I do change the sheets once a week.
