Why you should
make your bed

I recently adopted many minimalist practices throughout my home and life. I'm still working on most of them as my home has its ups and downs and my life remains as busy, or perhaps busier, as ever.

But lately there is one practice that I've never put forth the effort on that I think I should really try to make a habit. Often cast aside with the senseless jobs, such as washing windows or cleaning out from under your fridge, making one's bed typically only happens when the linens are freshly laundered.

Pictures of the Past

Elsie Harden Goad (left) and her mother, Nora Harden, stand behind the counter of their grocery store in Portia in the 1930s. They operated several grocery stores, restaurants and boarding rooms throughout the early 20th century, serving the local population, railroad workers and the carnival crowd that attended Portia's July 4th celebration. Elsie was also a longtime Portia news reporter for The Times Dispatch. (Pictures of the Past is a cooperative effort of The Times Dispatch and the Lawrence County Historical Society. Readers are encouraged to submit historic photos.)
