Declutter Bedroom In 15 Minutes
When your bedroom is cluttered it makes it very hard to put your hands on the clothes you want to wear for the day or even get a good nights rest, sometimes.
Declutter your bedroom and you will be much more at ease in your space. See the following tips in which I will tell you how to declutter your room in about 15 minutes.
Of course you will need to do this process about once a week, usually, to keep things in place. As you read through and start doing what I suggest, it will put in your mind a habit of putting things away as you bring them into the room or take them off, if the clothes were dirty.
How To Declutter A Bedroom – Start Here
What you will need:
- a trash can
- a recycling bin
- a clothes hamper
- a catch all bin
- a handheld vacuum
- a timer
Set your timer for 15 minutes. At this time, I suggest you don’t spend any more than 15 minutes doing this declutter. This is a general go through. If really messy you may certainly need more than that.
Put the recycling bin and trash bin in your doorway for easy reach.
Start With Your Nightstands
Next take all things off the nightstands so that they can be dusted or wiped clean with a damp cloth, if you have rings or stains.
I like to use a hand held vacuum to get up all the crumbs and debris.
Next, arrange the things that stay on the night stands in a way that is appealing. A lot of times it will be an arrangement of 3 things. And then put the things you need such as your alarm clock on the stand as well.
If the stand has drawers, remove everything, sort the items and dust out the drawers, then return needed items and put the rest in your proper bins.
Take A Walk Around Your Room
Next walk around your room with your catch all bin and put in anything that is out of place. Start with the bed and under the bed, then work around the rest of the room to declutter within your 15 minutes.
Dirty clothes would go in the hamper, so that you do not need to handle them more than once, you could pull that along as well.
Check Your Dressers
Most lists on how to declutter a bedroom are going to include cleaning your dresser(s) and removing unwanted things.
Start with the top, bring your bins over and put anything you can in the proper bins. Put away your rings and jewelry.
And just like the nightstands, use the handheld vacuum or a damp cloth to remove all the little bits and pieces from the top of the dresser.
Time To Sort Catch-all Bins
Sort your clothes into 3 piles. Dirty clothes of course go into the laundry basket.
Sort into smaller piles according to the location they need put away in. Your dresser or your closet, for example.
Clothes that need stored – If any are seasonal, you could certainly put them away in a storage box for now.
Clothes that need repaired – What needs to be repaired? Look for a hem that is coming undone or loose buttons and put it in a pile to be repaired.
Don’t forget to start a donation bag. All most all of us have extra clothing and items that really need to be gotten rid of or we just don’t like any more. Let someone else enjoy them.
Those clothes in the piles now need put into their proper place – the closet, the sewing room or into your dresser.
Declutter Your Bedroom Final Touches
The final task to declutter your bedroom is to now take all your bins and empty them, putting the items in their proper places.
Now is the time to also empty the trash and put the bins you were using away.
I have another article on how to declutter your bedroom closet that would also be appropriate to read.
Now, look at your timer. Is it still ticking away or did it go off all ready? Either way you will be able to say “Declutter Bedroom? Piece of Cake”, with this information.
Remember to do this about once a week, and that will keep the actual time needed down to 10 to 15 minutes most times.
