I have cats so I make the bed because if I didn't, the cats would lie all over the sheets and get them dirtier faster. I like the look of a tidy bed. It just makes me better able to function to be in a tidy environment. I do not like to have a lot of "stuff" on the bed (pillows, bed scarves, extra throws folded at the bottom, etc. That all registers "clutter" in my head.

I have a goose down conforter that we got before we were married. It is still in good shape twenty five years later. It seemed pricey at the time but it has worked out to about ten dollars per year, so I'm good.

A little late to the game...but same here. Duvet & bottom sheets. Making the bed simply means straightening out the duvet aand pillows. I don't call that making the bed, so it's never on the core list, lol...but it's always *put together*, neat and tidy looking.

Dh sleeps with two pillows, I have two, but really only use one, lol. Other than that, we don't have all that extra fluff on the bed. I agree, it just seems cluttered to me. Besides, the the down comforter is fluffy enough, lol.

We've had our comforter for so long, I couldn't imagine not having one. We wash ours on occassion, and use it year round.

I have both top and bottom sheets so I do noot have to change the duvet cover so often. I only have two covers, one flannel and one cotton.

My version of making the bed is shoving my sheet under my pillow and his sheet under his pillow. :smileyhappy:

Besides, where do people put all that stuff while they sleep?
