Dust & Vacuum Master Bedroom
Seems like when your bedroom is organized and tidy, your whole day just starts out better. You may sleep better, you may feel more relaxed, and it may even reduce your stress and anxiety, especially when you can create a little sanctuary! Another added benefit to keeping your bedroom organized is that you might find you want to spend more alone time with your hubby! And…since it is Valentine’s Day’s ……..well, I am just saying – spruce it up!
Having a room in which to enjoy each others company without having things in the way may open the door for more enjoyment. Follow these tips on how to keep your bedroom from becoming a catch all. Your life will thank you for it!
Don’t Let Trash Clutter up Your Space
This sounds so simple and easy, right? But how many of us just throw receipts, clothing tags, and other scraps of paper on the dresser, night stand, or in a chair—thinking we will pick that up later? A good idea is to have a trash can accessible by the bed or in a corner of the room. By just seeing that trash can, you will be more likely to use it. Put the trash in the can immediately. If you allow it to sit somewhere, more than likely it will become a piece of clutter in your bedroom. If it doesn’t belong in there, don’t let it come in.
Don’t Let Your Clothes Take Over
If the laundry is dirty, place it in the hamper or basket. When the hamper is full, take it to the laundry room and wash the clothes. You may find this helps keep you organized. If the laundry has been done and is clean, hang it up or fold it and put it away immediately. Not only will this help keep your bedroom organized, but it will save you hours of ironing time later. When things are put away where they belong, you do not waste precious time running from room to room trying to locate that particular “sweater” or “pair of socks” you need for your outfit.
Keeping an Organized Closet
Clothes all crammed together, shoes piled in a corner, hamper overflowing? That’s not a good way to start your day. A neat and organized closet makes getting up and ready for your day a lot faster and less stressful for everyone, and no matter what your current closet set up is, chances are you can make it better with just a few simple changes.
You may find that purchasing a closet organizing system is the best way to tame a chaotic closet. Simple additions like a sweater organizer, shoe organizer, or stackable shelves can help create more space. By hanging all these things up and keeping them tidy, your items may last longer, not only saving you space and time, but also money.
Avoid the Temptation to Just “Toss it on the Bed”
You might find it is easy to toss things on the bed when in a hurry. The shirt that you wore once and which needs to be hung up, the sweater that got left in the car, your empty winter purse after you moved all your stuff to your summer bag – it adds up.
Keep your bed clear from clutter. Take 30 seconds to hang up that shirt or put the purse in a drawer. Make your bed the most comfy, relaxing, inviting space in the room. You may find that this truly lets you relax and get a better night’s rest.
By following these bedroom organization tips, your anxiety levels will lessen, your quality of sleep will improve and you’ll enjoy spending more time in that space instead of dreading it.
