Now that spring is here, we should all look at how we can edit our homes, and eliminate those items we don’t need. In the bedroom, it’s easy to accumulate various things, especially since guests tend to stay in our living space and not enter our personal space. Are you feeling overwhelmed by clutter? Try any, or all of these suggestions to keep your bedroom clutter-free.
Clean out the drawers.
Drawers barely closing? For every new pair of socks or t-shirts you buy, throw away an old pair or shirt. That sock drawer did close at one point, and it should close again.
Rotate clothing seasonally.
If your closet is out of space, it’s time to purge. Pull out warm coats and thick winter clothing in spring and place in storage or an extra closet. In fall, remove summer clothing and store until the following year. Keeping your closets organized will help you keep piles off the floor, bed, and other furniture.
Clean out old magazines.
Magazines are tempting to keep (I’m guilty), but with most publications now on the web, there’s no reason to keep back issues unless they’re collector’s items.
Purchase bedside tables with drawers.
Declutter your bedside tables (or floor next to the bed) when you invest in a nightstand with drawers. Keep your miscellaneous tchotchkes tucked away.
Order storage drawers.
Adding drawers under your bed is a practical way to stay organized, especially if you have limited drawer space or no dresser. Our universal under-bed storage boxes fit under any bed with a minimum of 7 ¼” clearance from the floor.
Make your bed every day.
An unmade bed might not have anything to do with clutter, but I promise – making the bed will give the illusion that your bedroom is clean and organized, and that’s a great start.
