    I second the curtains, blanket and fruit bowl. Yes a woman needs a nightstand or end table they can reach from bed. Your apartment is going to feel a thousand times better.

    A shelf mounted on the wall can serve the same function, just need a place for eye glasses, tissues and a glass of water.

    I don't think I can mount stuff on the wall in my apartment.

    Well, it is going to be a while. I am first going to downsize things to make room. Then I will buy things as my finances allow.

    A thought on the “nightstand”

    google “bamboo folding stool”. something like that would be ok. It is small, reasonably attractive, easily moveable, and could add an extra seat at your table, serve as a nightstand, give you another work surface, or be put away in a closet depending on your needs. Do not get a plastic or metal tube legged one.

    and a stool, with a solid top. Do not put a folding chair (with a back) next to your bed.

    Yes, I think that's a great idea. I would think that a key principle of minimalist decor is multi-functional furniture. I actually used this technique in the summer this year: we bought 4 stools for our butcher block table, but only two are needed 80% of the time. So one goes in DH's workshop and one went next to DH's side of the bed to hold his cpap.
