Pajama poll - Necessary, nice or needless?

Are you a PJ wearer or perhaps use them as lounge wear but shuck them off at bedtime? Is foregoing PJ's a good opportunity to save some dough

Boxers or nekkid...

For lounging around la casa, it's sweats in the winter, boxers in the summer.

No chance I'll be wearing a full set of PJs in a Texas summer. In the winter, a T-shirt and a pair of sweatpants, usually.

But that's one of my favorite things.

Never could think of a reason to get dressed for sleep.

I wear my smile to bed.
My buddy Patch (stuffed dog used as body pillow) serves as my PJs, so to speak.

You say that as something wrapping itself around your lower body is a bad thing

T-Shirt and Boxers, unless it is cold, then add a pair of PJ bottoms. DW has really cold feet!

Pajama Hymn of the Republic

I wear my silk pajamas in the summer when it's hot
I wear my wool pajamas in the winter when it's not
And sometimes in the springtime, and sometimes in the fall,
I jump in bed with nothing on at all.
Glory, glory hallelujah
Balmy breezes blowin through ya
Glory, glory hallelujah
With no-thing-on-at-all.

I thought we had frugal people here. If you wear any clothing to bed you waste:
  • the money to buy it since it's not necessary
  • the energy expended to remove it in order to use your bed for its intended purpose

Well the men say they have to keep their boys under control. Being a woman, I have to keep my girls under control.....
