I used to not care, but since we have kids, no food anywhere besides the kitchen. If I let up and okayed food in the bedroom, I think it would slowly move its way to eating in the living room, the kids eating in their bedroom and that would be a disaster. I am also a germ/clean freak. If there were crumbs in my bed, I'd flip. I wouldn't be able to sleep with dishes on my nightstand lol. I know that would end up happening.
