    Yes, even though nobody sees it but me. There's just something more comfortable about climbing between the covers when they haven't laid crumpled up all day.

    yep. only i mess it up by lazing around on my neat bed during the day.

    i don't tuck the top sheet. i just smooth is out and top with my bedspread. it's a feet thing, they must be poking out from under the sheet to sleep.

    I won't let TK be the only one who'll admit they don't. I make the bed when I change the sheets.

    Not since I got out of the Army. I look at it this way, I'm the only one (or a significant other) that will be in my bedroom, and since I don't care what it looks like........

    Nope, I find it completely useless to make a bed. It's something you sleep on and no one is going to care if they see it.

    I only make the bed when visiting my parents or friends overnight, although it is pointless if they intend to wash the sheets. I have heard it is good to let the sheets air out a while before making the bed. This discourages bacterial growth.

    Yes. Even if no one is going to see it, I'd feel as though I were being a slob.

    Yup, the bed is made everyday.

    Sheets get changed every week religiously too. I do pull back the sheets and let the bed air out on warmer or sunny days however, but the bed always gets made before evening.

    The pillows and blankets also get hung out in the sun every once in a while too.

    No, but I found a semi solution. I put a comforter down on the bed and sleep on it, that way when I get up it kind of looks like it is made when I get up.

    I make the bed every day. I usually make it as soon as I get up, sometimes I will wait until after I take a shower and get dressed, but regardless, it's always made by the time I leave for work.

    I change my sheets at least once a week (usually on Saturday) and when I do, I will strip my bed and let it air out all day and put the fresh linens on in the afternoon.

    I throw the comforter so that its fairly made up...nothing tucked in. I dated a guy who was somewhat OCD, and he got me in the habit of making my bed. I still do it because it makes me feel as if my bed is clean and tidy when I crawl in each night.
