Not long after I was living on my own – back when I moved into the college dorms, in fact – I found a simple way of making my bed that was fast and easy. The first thing I did was dispense with the flat sheet. I’ve never much liked flat sheets anyway, as I tend to push them down with my feet and find them bunched at the foot of the bed when I wake up.
So now I need only the following to make my bed:
- fitted sheet to cover the mattress
- pillow case (2, since I use 2 pillows)
- comforter cover, aka duvet
Since the comforter is protected by the duvet, it only needs to be washed infrequently. Everything else is easily washed weekly. And most importantly, it takes all of one minute to make the bed in the morning – just a little fluffing of the pillows, and spreading of the comforter over the bed. That’s it!
