If you’re like most people, you wouldn’t want to waste a good weekend just to clean your bedroom simply because you’ve let the clutter accumulate overtime. Here are three of the most effective organization ideas that will let you declutter daily.
Clean As You Go
As simple as it may sound, not too many people can clean up after themselves. Some people are often in a hurry, usually leaving their clutter especially in the morning. But unless you kick in the habit of always cleaning up as you go, your bedroom will look like a total mess. We’ve listed below some examples on how you can easily declutter and strategies to help you remember to put things back where they should go:
-Once you’re done with your morning drink, take back your mugs and glasses to the kitchen.
-As soon as you’re done reading your favorite book or magazine, immediately put it back to its bookshelf.
-After workouts, stow away any equipment that you’ve used such as yoga mats, balls, and weights.
-If you’ve pulled out 15 shirts out of your closet while you’re looking for something to wear, put them back immediately once you’ve found what you’re looking for.
When you think about it, doing these things at once will only take a few minutes, or sometimes even less to accomplish. It’s better to spend a few minutes every day putting things back, rather than spending an entire day or two just to declutter your home.
Keep Your Clothes Tidy
Clothes lying around on the floor is one of the culprits of a messy room. Once you’re done with your daily workout, you take it out and leave them on the desk then you hit the showers. After that, you throw your towel on the floor. What next? You’ll look at what to wear, so you’ll probably try about seven shirts and leave the ones you don’t like on your bed. You can see where we’re heading, right?
In the long run, save yourself from hours of cleaning up and tidying up by putting back all your clothes to your closet once you’ve decided on which one to wear. Make sure to put your laundry in the basket, and hang your towel to try. These things would only take a couple of minutes. Make it a habit not to leave your pajamas in your bed. Instead, neatly fold your nightwear and put it in a drawer. You can alternatively install a hook by your closet so you can hang those there. You’ll surely be thankful that you did this, rather than find yourself digging and sniffing your clothes trying to figure out which is clean and which is dirty.
Immediately Throw Away Trash
You’re probably familiar with this scenario, right? Candy wrappers, clothing tags, empty water bottles, receipts, and many others start to accumulate, and if you don’t take care of it immediately, things may get out of hand. The trash belongs to the trash bin – so make sure that you put it in there.
You’ll be surprised how much time you can save by cleaning up your home and by saving a few minutes every day just by keeping things tidy and in place every day. Starting today, make it a habit to declutter, throw away the trash, keep things tidy and make sure that your stuff is placed in the proper place. You’ll thank yourself for doing this in the future.
