5 Simple Ways to Declutter your Bedroom

Regardless of what role your bedroom plays within your home, it must represent a place of ease and tranquility. A hideaway from all outside interactions and disturbances in a stress-free manner. Does this sound like a room you would like to escape to each night?

If it does, then let me help you declutter your bedroom in 5 simple steps. Stay with me and go at your own pace.
  1. Tackle one space in the bedroom at a time.
  2. Separate the things in the your room. It is a good idea to have another part of the house as an organizing area.  Perhaps a connecting room, or even the hallway area works well.  Place your things in the following classifications: Usable, Junk/Recycle, and Donate
  3. Junk are any wrappers, boxes, papers, etc.  If you have recycling in your area, this makes it much easier. This is a simple and basic process, but be careful and not throw away anything important like bills, statements, or items you may want to keep for future use, such as holiday cards, invitations, announcements, etc.  I may have done this once or twice, helping to clean someone else's room.  This is why I highly recommend cleaning your own bedroom.  These are your personal and private items and you would not want to risk losing anything important. 
  4. Consider items that can be donated to an organization that can help someone else make good use of items you no longer use.  Items such as softly worn clothing, bedsheets or blankets that have been replaced with newer color or design, are welcomed by organizations such as Goodwill, Salvation Army, and Am-vets. Plus you can use this as a tax write-off.  Just just ask for a receipt.
  5. Finally you are ready to start bringing back the items and clothing you intend to keep.  Bring the items back into the room.  Wash or dry-clean clothing if needed.  Fold or hang garments and put them in their proper places neatly.  Be sure all garments are put into a dresser drawer or closet.  
    Now was it really all that hard to declutter your bedroom? It was probably more tedious than anything. You can now relax and enjoy your bedroom like it was intended to be - decluttered and stress free. Learn more about how to declutter your bedroom from Mimi Tanner, who is one of the leading experts in this field.
