Organizing Your Bedroom

Organizing a bedroom is crucial to your mental state!  Believe me, I know :-) You will feel more calm and relaxed if you're space is neat, clean & orderly.  You will feel the results immediately.  Some experts say that your sleep will improve too, which in turn helps you wake up with a better attitude.  Don't you want that?!

CLEAN YOUR BEDSIDE TABLE -- From the moment you reach over to snooze your alarm clock . . . you see CLUTTER.  There's nothing wrong with keeping a book or two on your bedside table, but do you really need 5 magazines, a container of tissues, 3 bottles of moisturizer, two glasses cases and that bottle of antacid there as well?!?!

Remove everything from your bedside table that is broken or that you haven't touched in at least 2 weeks.  Things that should belong in other areas of the house should be put back in their proper homes.  They don't need to take up real estate on your bedside table.

Think of creative ways to organize your space.  Do you have lots of books & magazines on your bedside table?  If so, add a book shelve like the one here.  How many books or magazines do you really need at your bedside?  If it's more than a book shelf might hold, maybe a linen lined basket might work.  I have one on the floor near my bed.  It works perfectly for me & isn’t an eye sore.  Toss out, donate or give away magazines & books you're done with.  Have a book swap at work or donate them to the town or school library.

Once you have decluttered your bedside table, you need to make sure it stays that way.  Therefore, create routines that suit you.  Make a point to clean it up every night, every other night, or every Sunday.  Whichever works for you.  Routines helps us stay organized & will keep your bedroom decluttered!
