If you’re like most people, your bedroom is kind-of a catch-all for laundry and miscellaneous items – but that takes away from what it’s really supposed to be: a relaxing, peaceful retreat from the stresses of each day.
There are a few things you can do to keep your bedroom as neat as possible, though, short of hiring a weekly cleaning service (which you can definitely do if you need a little help).
4 Tips to Keep Your Bedroom Neat All the Time
If your bedroom gets messy before you even realize what’s happening, you’re not alone. It happens to all of us! Use these five tips to keep things tidy every day.
#1: Work On Your Laundry Habits
Don’t keep laundry baskets in your bedroom – dirty or clean. Try to put your dirty clothes near the washer and dryer, and when you have clean clothes, fold and hang them as you remove them from the dryer.
#2: Keep Odds and Ends in a Basket or Bowl
If the top of your dresser or nightstand ends up collecting random odds and ends, this one’s for you. Keep a cute basket, tray or bowl there to corral all your items and keep the surface looking neat.
#3: Keep a “Donate” Basket on Your Closet Floor
When you find something that doesn’t fit or you just don’t like anymore, don’t make a mental note to donate it when you get around to it – put it directly in a “Donate” basket. That way, you’ll keep your racks free from items you don’t use.
#4: Work on Maintenance
Make your bed in the morning (last one out has to do it!) to set yourself up for the day. It’s one less thing to worry about, and you’ll have a nice, made bed to hop into at night.
“If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another.
By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter.” – Navy Admiral William McRaven
