I consider Habit #10: Make Your Bed Every Day an absolute success! Yay!
It didn't hurt that Joseph and I finished our DIY headboard project just in time, plus, after months of searching, I found the duvet cover that fit all my qualifications. Oh, and don't forget the bright white throw pillows that added texture and a cozy touch. How could I not want to make my bed when it finally looked so pretty? College dorm room look…..gone.
Even while I was away at a 3-day conference, Joseph took it upon himself to continue the bed-making trend and make it in my absence — he's a keeper, that one!
I can't even begin to tell you how productive my days were as a result of this simple habit. Having a quick win in the morning gave me the boost I needed to tackle my to-do list, and I had no excuse not to, really. When your bed looks so put together, the rest of your day does too. I know it sounds silly, but it's true!
One of my very favorite things about these habits is when the Creative Savings community joins in on the fun. Everyone who shared a photo of their freshly made bed was eligible to win a $50 gift card to Amazon.com, and our winner for this month is mandy q!

As a reminder, the purpose of 12 Mini Habits is to have 12 new habits by the end of the year, instead of resolutions that don't last.
I'm still working on Habits #1-9, and now I'll add everyday bed-making to my list. I've definitely noticed a big difference doing these habits, and even though they might not always be perfect, at least I'm striving toward them…..and that's progress in my mind!
If you're interested in working through either of those previous challenges, please keep sharing photos of your journey on social media with the hashtag #12MiniHabits to be eligible for future giveaways. And if you're completely new to this whole series, don't be shy in joining us!
Habit #11 is already underway, so pop on over to this post for all the details.
Did you make your bed every day this month?
