There are three things that I do every morning that vastly improve the outcome of my day. First is go to the gym or work up a sweat–even if it’s just 30 minutes! The second is get ready for the day. Working from home, I used to be tempted to stay in lounge wear every day, but putting on real clothes and doing my hair and my five minute make-up always puts me in the right mindset to tackle my to-do list. Lastly, make the bed. It takes me less than 3 minutes and it makes me feel weirdly confident and very adult. In the back of my mind, I know at the end of the day, I’m going to be able to relax in straightened sheets and well, I deserve that pleasure!
eBay recently launched Linen Market, an exclusive bedding collection that features high-style/high-quality for less and I ordered a Linen Market for our bed (and for the cabin bedroom–you may have caught that in this post). It’s super soft and offers just the right amount of weight to fall asleep under, while not being as hot as a traditional quilt. We don’t use a top sheet, because they are too light weight for the hassle, imo–but Linen Market is just right and buys me time in between duvet cover washes.
And! It was just $50 for the king and around $30 for a queen. Although ours looks like it could definitely use a steam, I love the added texture it adds to the bed, too. Here’s a quick rundown of how what goes into making our bed every morning:
- Fitted Sheet
- Chris’s body pillow
- Our normal pillows
- Decorative Shams that match duvet
- Decorative Pillows
It’s true, number 6 and 7 aren’t functional parts of our bed, but they do serve to make me happy day in and day out and even help to inspire me to make the bed every morning! I just love seeing it all neatly put together.
