Believe it or not, clutter doesn’t appear overnight. It slowly builds up and accumulates.
One day you come home from work and throw your jacket on the floor.
The next day you place your sweatshirt on top of the jacket.
And, BOOM! Just like that, you have a heap of clothes covering your bedroom floor, making your room cluttered.
Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home.
It’s your resting place; where you go to relax and rejuvenate.
Because of that, it’s imperative to keep your bedroom organized and clutter-free.
If your bedroom is in a state of despair at the moment due to all of the clutter, don’t feel discouraged. You are not alone!
So, are you ready to take back your bedroom?
Listed below are 11 clever bedroom decluttering and organizing hacks that you can use to clear out all of the useless things in your room.
Take things one step at a time
Accumulating clutter is so much easier than trying to get rid of it.
And if it’s too much clutter, you can start to feel overwhelmed by it all.
That’s why it’s best to start off slow and take your decluttering process one step at a time.
Focus on one area of the room and once that area is completely decluttered and organized, move on to the next area.
For example, start by clearing the clothes off your floor, then declutter and organize your closet, then move on to your dresser drawers, your vanity, your nightstand, and so forth.
Don’t try to do too much too fast.
Whatever you do, just don’t stop moving!
Pick up everything on your floor
It’s time to finally tackle those mountains of clothes living on your bedroom floor.
Place dirty clothes in your laundry bin and place clean clothes in your dresser or closet.
Declutter your nightstand
It’s so easy to stack everything up on top of your nightstand.
Throw away junk and items that you no longer use or need.
Do this for other surface tops in your room, like the top of your dresser and the top of your vanity.
Once you’ve finished decluttering your nightstand, you can use a nightstand organizer to tidy the items you’re keeping.
Clear out your dresser drawers
Start off by completely emptying your dresser drawers. Sort through the clothes and place the articles of clothing that you don’t wear anymore in a trash bag. Fold the clothes that you are keeping and place them neatly in your dresser drawers.
Make your bed
When your bed is made up it instantly makes your bedroom look 10x more organized and neat. Try to get into the habit of making your bed up every day as soon as you get up.
Utilize the space under your bed for extra storage
Using that small space under your bed for storage will make a huge impact on your bedroom.
To make the most of this handy storage space, pack your belongings into storage containers and store them underneath the bed.
If your closet is stuffed to the brim and you don’t have any more room in your dresser drawers, place those items in a storage bin and slide it right under the bed.
