Quick Tips on Decluttering in Your Bedroom

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Do you need to do a quick mission in your bedroom today? Here are some pointers to help you break it down and move quickly to bring order to your bedroom.
Piled Up Clothing:
Do you have clothes piled in the corner? Chairs and treadmills in the bedroom are a clutter magnet for clothes. Usually your clothes spend more time on the treadmill than you do. Spend a few minutes putting your clothes away.
Covered Up Flat Surfaces:
Are your flat surfaces piled full? Take a look at the piles. What you can give away or throw away? What needs to be put away? Get it down to the bare essentials. Put away the things that do not have special meaning to you.
Corners Filled with Clutter:
If you have things piled in the corners, find a place for them or get rid of them. Sometimes we get so used to seeing things in the corners of our room that we quit “seeing” them. Look at your room with fresh eyes. Spend a few minutes clearing your corners of the clutter that lurks there.
Think about how you feel when you walk into a hotel room or a vacation rental. Until you unpack, it has clear surfaces. Do what you can to recreate this in your bedroom. If you have cleared off surfaces, you can dust weekly. If your surfaces are piled high, you probably are not dusting in there regularly. It’s time to evict the dust bunnies!
 Under Your Bed:
Do you use the underneath part of your bed for storage? Consider not keeping anything under your bed or only a few things. It will be easier to evict the dust bunnies each month when I tell you to clean under your bed.
Make Your Bed:
Look at your bed. Do you need to freshen up your linens, bed cover, or pillows? Adding a few throw pillows can give your bed a new look after you make it each day. If you are slacking on making your bed daily, resolve now to make your bed as soon as you get up each morning. I get up before my husband in the mornings, and I make my side of the bed as soon as I get up.
Cluttered Closet:
Open your closet. If it is cluttered up, start decluttering a few minutes at a time until it looks better. I do not want you to pull everything out and sort. I just want you to flip through your hangers and pull out whatever does not fit or that you don’t like. It might be one thing, and it might be ten things. Do not tell yourself to hang onto it if you have held onto it for years waiting to lose weight to fit into it. Do not feel guilty if it still has tags on it. Bless someone else with it, if it does not fit.
You can make your room a haven of rest. Use these tips for some quick missions to bring peace to your bedroom.
Today’s Zone Mission is to toss your worn out or ill-fitting undergarments.
Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is a cookout with our homeschool group.
Have a great day!
