I totally didn't know this, but according to feng shui it is bad energy to keep stuff under your bed--esp. sharp objects and books. Wow, when we finally get a bed frame I'll be sure to not to put anything underneath it!
The only thing I keep under our bed is an emergency ladder for climbing out the window in case of fire. I figure that way if we ever need it, we'll know where it is. I don't want to have to dig through a closet and try to find it pushed it back in a corner. It may be bad feng shui, but safety trumps that for me!

I had read about this a few years ago--not that I follow feng shui. Still, I must confess that I felt better after removing everything from under my bed about a year ago. I think it was more of a personal accomplishment for me because I surely abused that space in the past by allowing all sorts of crapola to collect there. Now I don't allow anything under there as a point of principle (although the ladder is surely a good idea!).
