This may come as a surprise to us Not-So-Tidies, but (drumroll please).... Tidy People make their beds.
I KNOW, RIGHT??
What a waste of time.
....Since you're going to be right back in it in 16 hours. Psh.
There are plenty of reasons NOT to make your bed each day, but unfortunately, none of them are very good.
Except for the one that your cat is under the covers.
Or that your tiny little arms can't reach across your bed. The T-Rex plea does stand up to scrutiny.
I dunno. Perhaps your reason is that your bed-making skills are at Level: Dog.
You really can't get much lower than that, skill-wise. I'd say that one might work.
But in the end, the only valid reason to not make your bed is when your day gets cancelled. Because, let's be honest, some days should be cancelled.
I love that pillowcase.
Today's Small Thing is to adopt the Tidy Habit of making your bed.
Even Not-So-Tidy people can pull their comforters up and fluff their pillows. It takes about one minute, but instantly makes your bedroom feel neat and fresh. Tidy, even.
Do you make your bed each morning? Do your children make theirs? Toddlers can *help* by putting their pillows and stuffed animals on while you do the hard part. Even if the rest of your house is a complete nuclear wasteland of clutter, knowing your bed is made empowers you to take on the world.
How long will it take you to get all the beds done today? An hour? A half hour? 15 minutes? Hmmm. I'm thinkin' 5 minutes. Time yourself and let me know the results.
