this would make my mom so happy!

Fraidy's picture

judges, i need some official rulings.  If I share a bed, and am the first person out, but convince the other to make said bed (strongly against his will), do i get credit for this?

And, no, it isn't that important to me, but he and I had an argument about this, where he said he's not doing my work for me, and i said that convincing him to do it is more work than doing it myself.

sandyliz's picture

LOL! I totally agree, sandyliz. This challenge really does involve family members and roommates, what with all the cooking at home, fish for dinner, pimped out bed and energy-saving. My dear husband agreed to do ten feats (but no workouts) with me for January (including Jan Plan Plus!!!).

whatodds's picture

i love this challenge! I propose to either make or buy a load of new throw pillows and get some new sheets. btw, one of my things to live by is to make my bed everyday...neat bed, neat mind? seriously it somehow helps me feel more organized

urbansherpa's picture

The Boy has such an annoying tendency to oversleep and be late for work (after I've already left) that there isn't a hope in hell of him making the bed! Shame, as this was a challenge I could tick off myself quite happily.

CakeOrDeath's picture

I'm wondering if it counts if I make my half of the bed when I get up.  

yeahredgymnast's picture

I make my bed everyday, so no problem here.  :)

volcane09's picture

yeah i am working at home now and making my bed in the morning helps me create "edges".

I already have great sheets and comforter. so i  going to finally put up those curtains i have had sitting here in my bedroom. get a decent bed night lamp, and i just ordered a new pillow.

anilop's picture

Oops, to soon.

I bought my bed a microsilk, microfiber "down" blanket.

I see I still need to make the bed every day.

I'll be back.

@HereNow's picture

just posted a pic of my freshly pimped bed. organic cotton shetts.....yummers.

Saucyd's picture

This will be a hard one, but I know I'll feel better when I come home from work each day to a nice tidy bedroom. Will take my special quilt (handmade by me!) out of storage and put it on the bed, which will motivate me to make it every day.   100% hand-quilted, made with fabrics designed by Laura Ashley.

have5cats's picture

I just bought new sheets yesterday!  Good timing. 

I attempt to make the bed every morning, but my BF banned me and does it himself because he says I do a crappy job. 

tiffany's picture

New quilt (to help with the 20 degree weather), new sheets, vacuumed and rotated the matress, and a new bedside tray to hold my sleep journal and water.

sidneystiles's picture

Sandyliz, so sorry it took us so long to make an official ruling. If you convince him, credit is yours: feat accompli!

Charity D.'s picture

I have bamboo sheets (I love the feel of these), a down comforter and my bed is made each morning, even with the furkids that try to help.

lhlady517's picture

snagged some new sheets & a new comforter - so far so good on the making the bed too.  yeah for polka dots!

artichkme's picture

thanks Charity.  But now it doesn't matter, as I am back in a bed by myself.  Which has to be made, because its the couch during the day.

so, another Feat on the way to completion!

sandyliz's picture

New down comforter!

KKesquire's picture

I got awesome new sheets and new lampshades for our bedside tables. I already make the bed every day so I can confidently say this will continue to happen.

alicetiara's picture

I make my bed (nearly) every day, and love the way it gives the bedroom a relaxed and welcoming air.

Trix's picture

I make 2 beds every day. I like coming home to a made bed, then I don't look at the mess in the rest of the room.

jan1965's picture

I have these amazing new cozy flannel sheets!  PLUS I've added pillows under my knees (sleep on my back) - I am so comfy and cozy, I look forward to sleep every night!!

michlny's picture

I make my bed every day and change my sheets every week... but today I thought I'd go shopping for some pimps. Unfortunately I didn't find any I liked.

kornflowers's picture

In a NY apartment, making your bed every morning is almost a must!  Nothing makes the apt look messier than it is than a bed that's unmade.  

Pimp:  de-cluttered nightstands, new simple vases, and new shams for the bed.

@certainDISASTER's picture

i LOVE doing this. It's on automatic now. Whenever I leave, even if I'm in a hurry, my bed just doesn't look right not made!!

ramonalisa30's picture

Totally pimping my sexy self in my bed with a new satin nighty... trust me when I say this- this is totally new to me!

Llaves's picture

33 consecutive days of making by bed - I don't think I've EVER done that before...

swell1's picture

we're nuts. but...we did pimp my bed!

msh258's picture

making my bed when I get up instead of before I go to sleep - a habit that I think is going to stick.

gleam's picture

makin my bed every day, got some sky blue 620-thread-count sheets and a new quilt... yumm

kornflowers's picture

I'm not winning any super-pimped-bed prizes...but feat accompli nonetheless!

babarbanel's picture

this has started to become a compulsion. i actually feel a little anxious until i make it. my mom would be so proud and so very, very surprised.

twinklefee's picture

The new pillow was totally worth the money, and I've discovered that the bedroom stays cleaner when the bed is made. I'm more inspired to want to hang up my clothes or put them in the hamper rather than toss them in the corner if the bed looks nice. Who knew?

neversent's picture

Not a big stretch.  I do this every day, anyway.
