10 Good Reasons to Make Your Bed

My dad insisted that we make our bed every morning! Really, Dad, really? Even when our traveling family band was housed in a 32-ft motorhome, we were forced to make our beds (never mind that my bed was disguised as our breakfast table during the day)! Now that I'm a mom, wife, and grandmother with a very sensitive nose, I see great value in the daily chore of making my bed. So, let me share with you a few words of wisdom from the "bed"of my father's teaching garden.

10 Good Reasons to Make Your Bed
  1. Since the bed is the largest thing in your room, it makes the whole room look tidier.
  2. It creates a feeling of accomplishment. It only takes about 10 seconds to make the bed; an easy chore to check off your daily to-do list. 
  3. You are less likely to jump back in bed if it is made.
  4. You can proudly give tours through your house at any time. Every girl longs for that "model home" feel...but model homes don't display unmade beds.
  5. It makes the house smell better, especially at the end of the week before sheet changing time. No one wants her house to smell like a men's locker room! You can leave the bedroom door open if your bed is made, airing out the room with fresh air every day.
  6. A made bed is a great place to fold laundry.
  7. It seems more fresh to turn down a neatly made bed at night than to crawl into a disheveled mass of sheets and blankets.
  8. You can teach your children to make their beds, if you are a good example.
  9. You can show off that beautiful bedspread or comforter you bought with the matching throw where are they? Oh, there they are under the bed! Really? No one will see them there!
  10. It is more fun to jump on a freshly made bed (Just kidding). Kids are less apt to jump on a made bed. Really, no kidding.
