First you will need to declutter - try 5 minutes a day; Your declutter list or plan will be unique to you as you only know what there is, how much of it there is, and where it is. But here is a list of things in your bedroom whihc you will need to sort through bit by bit.

Then on to Organizing: Now that your shelves have been cleared of excess 'junk' - it's time to organize - keeping similar items in logical places;

Thirdly - you can Clean! You might need to start with some deep cleaning first - but the list of jobs below are tasks that can be done in 5 mins!

Month 1, Week 1: Tips for organizing the Bedroom


Declutter Clothing: Go through clothes one drawer at a time. Anything with the tags still on can be put online on sites like Ebay or sold in a consignment store, while other items can be given away, repurposed or sold at a discount. Go through your undergarment drawers and toss out anything with holes or excessive wear in them. Time to go shopping!


Sort clothes into closet sections, shelves or drawers. Organize shirts in one drawer, pants in another; You can also sort by work clothes and leisure clothes. It's up to you - as long as it makes life easier to find certain items, especially if you are in a rush.

if you have more time this week - move from room to room doing the same thing in each bedroom.

I really like adding smaller dividers into the drawers or spaces you have. It's a great place to store the small things in a neater way. Underwear, socks, bras, singlets.


Pick up the laundry. This task can be completely skipped if it is a part of your daily routine (see the home management page). If everyone is good at picking up their laundry and bringing it to the dirty washing basket or into the laundry - that will make your job easier. This week - aim to make new plans to get your family to clean up after themselves and at least deposit the laundry in the right place. The floor is not the right place for dirty socks!
