Day 3023 - My bedside table

What does your bedside table say about you?

We've all seen those posts where people empty their handbags and share with they world what they carry around with them.  It (apparently) says a lot about a person.  All it says about me is that I don't clean out my receipts often enough and that I seem to be a collector of bobby pins and pens.

What does say something about me is my bedside table.  Or more precisely, what I keep in the top drawer of my bedside table (which I've opened for you today).

Besides all the keepsakes from yesteryear, my bedside table houses the stuff that are important to me come bedtime. 

Let's see what it says about me today.

My bedside table says that I watch TV in bed and that right now I'm indulging in my chick flick library.  Breakfast at Tiffany's is a favourite of mine that I watch with the model daughter.

My bedside table says that my fitbit is spending more time off my wrist than on right now which also suggests the exercise side of things isn't going quite as well as it could be.

My bedside table says that I have pain in my back, neck and shoulders and that the dolphin massager is getting a work out.

My bedside table says that I'm currently wearing silver jewellery and that I'm loving the earrings and matching ring the hubby and kids bought me for my last birthday.

My bedside table says that hair-ties are the must-have accessory this summer as I continually pile my hair on top of my head.

My bedside table says that I'm reading a book that I never would have looked twice at had my lovely neighbour not loaned it to me (along with a pile of others for the hospital waiting rooms before Christmas).  I'm thoroughly enjoying it!

My bedside table says that I appreciate my cousin and her thoughtful gift "The Wisdom of Sundays" by Oprah Winfrey.

My bedside table says that my bed is my comfort zone and it's where I go to escape. 

My bedside table says it's getting cluttered and it's time to clean out the top drawer to fit everything back in.

What does your bedside table say about you? 


  1. Mine currently has: a lamp, for reading. A Russell Brand book on addiction. Tissues (yay, sinus!), a water bottle and (oddly) a piece of a woven baby carrying wrap- just a panel that I bought because it is gorgeous, but I haven't done anything with it yet!

  2. I don't so much have a bedside table - rather, my side of the bed is close to a bookshelf so I just put my things on there. I usually have the book that I'm reading at the moment, a Bible and my phone which serves as an alarm clock in the morning. I love the idea of having a proper bedside table, though. Maybe if we had a bigger bedroom!

  3. My bedside table is overflowing and says I need a bigger bedroom with more storage! Or does it say that I need to declutter and go more minimalistic?!


  4. Always have a book or 3, lamp and glasses. Less is better for me - but please tell me hubby that too. LOL

  5. I have a lamp, photo frame, flowers and a candle. My kind of perfection.

  6. Oh my bedside table has quite the range of items too. I have it all in a tray (at least it looks tidy!) and there are some medicines I take, eye drops, a book, some cream for my legs/face, and pen or three....and right next to those is a lamp and a remote for the fan. I also have, thanks to my clever furniture making spouse, a top drawer which holds more 'stuff'. Denyse x PS I think my fit bit is back in its box. it was getting to be a nag!

  7. My bedside table is small and has phone, ipad and lip balm on it. Usually nothing more.

  8. The top of my bedside table is always too full. Currently has 3 books, neurofen, water bottle, 2 jars of pens etc an eraser and a fork (lol I just ate lunch while sitting on my bed with the dogs). How is the Oprah book?

  9. A bedside table really does say a lot. I was looking at mine earlier this week thinking, geeez when did it get so dusty. Which is, indicative of my current housework situation to say the least. Haha.

  10. My bedside table says I really need to clean & dust it. The drawers don't even let me open them, they are that bad! I do nothing but sleep in my bedroom so I think my desk would be a much more accurate indicator of my personality! Lol!

  11. I would love to have a neatly styled bedside table, but by the time I pile my latest book, bedtime medications, CPAP, TV remote, and other random bits and bobs on it, it doesn't look very stylish at all!


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
