I'm the same way except for me it's books and magazines, computers, ereaders, etc. I am planning to put a couple of shelves on the wall and slide the bed under them. I will still be able to reach all my stuff w/o it crowding me out. Also, easy to pull the bed out to make it and clean behind it. Love sleeping on my own and will never go back to sharing!

luvchevron....you do NOT have a "weird problem"...LOL....you have one of two OTHER problems, though....either you find that sketching before going to sleep relaxes you so you stretch out on the bed with all your supplies and sketch...until you're sleepy...then just toss the supplies to the side of the bed and go to sleep!! LOL.......OR.....you do not have a SUITABLE place to do your sketching OTHER than your bed............either way....easy fixes...............it you LIKE to sketch in bed before sleeping, invest in a proper bedside cabinet with drawers, so when you are done "relaxing", you can just place all your supplies in the drawers, close the drawers ( they'll be there waiting for you the next night! ), and you'll have a whole bed to relax in PLUS a neat, organized bedroom!! Score!!.............if the bed is the ONLY comfy place for you to sketch, then I'd suggest buying an oversized comfy chair AND a cabinet with drawers to set beside it....now you can sketch whenever you please, and still have the supplies in the cabinet ( but out of sight! ), AND have the whole bed for sleeping!! Again, score!!....just need the right pieces of furniture for enjoying your hobby! Good luck!!

Interestedindesign- I feel your pain! Here's something I learned recently and it has REVOLUTIONIZED my ability to purge without getting overwhelmed. Instead of the typical questions (i. e. Does it fit, is it damaged, have I worn it in the past year..... Etc) I ask myself only 2 questions: Do I LOVE it? Is it my favorite? It's the 80/20 rule. We generally use only 20% of our belongings 80% of the time. I've been able (finally!) to make rapid decisions and be happy about it. I've reduced the rod space I need for hanging clothes from about 8 feet to less than 3 feet. Let me tell you..... I'm a terrible procrastinator and am easily overwhelmed, but since starting this the purging now gets me excited and happy. Crazy, huh?
