Hey guys and welcome back to my blog!
You know when you have to tidy your room but have no clue where to start?…
Story of my life! XD
I always always ALWAYS have trouble with tidying my room and quite frankly, I never have the motivation for it because in my mind it’s a grueling chore, that’s going to take ages, and to top it off? I don’t know where to start!
But have no fear! For I am here to share my great, powerful wisdom of bedroom tidying! (You can thank me later XD )
So! Lets get started!
- MAKE A CHECKLIST
Sounds simple enough right? Of course it is! Just grab some paper and a pen and do yourself a checklist!
I don’t know about you, but for me, checklist’s make everything seem easier and puts things into perspective. I also find it incredibly satisfying when I complete a task and get to check it off the list!!! That’s one less thing to do and I’m one step closer to finishing!
2. SET A MUSIC PLAYLIST OR PUT ON A MOVIE
Some may disagree with this because both can be seen as a distraction or can bring you away from what your supposed to be doing… but as long as your not just sitting there doing nothing, what’s the harm of it? If anything, It’s nice to have something going on in the back ground so then I’m not tidying in complete silence XD Also that way, I can rock out to some awesome tunes while hoovering or listen to one of my favorite stand-up comedians XD
3. COMFY CLOTHES ALLLL THE WAY
This isn’t a must-do, but you’ll feel a lot more comfortable. Especially with all the moving around your gonna do! Keep in mind, you may also break a sweat and if your wearing tight jeans and a shirt, it may get a bit uncomfortable.
4. LETS GET TO WORK!
The first thing to do is to pick the less hassle tasks first. So, an example: MAKE YOUR BED. Its simple, easy and done within 2 minutes… then boom! You’ve completed your first task! CONGRATS! 😀
Next, you’ll choose another simple task… like taking down glasses, plates etc… or throwing away any rubbish you may have lying about.
Then, you get to work on picking up all the clothing you have lying about. Folding all the clean clothing in a pile on your bed and putting all the dirty clothing in your dirty clothing hamper. Or if you don’t have a hamper, a bin bag would do just fine.
Once you’ve separated the clean from dirty, you can then escort your dirties to the washing machine and put away the cleans in their designated draw or wardrobe.
At this point, you should be able to see your floor and can now move on to decluttering any shelves, windowsills or desks.
When I start to declutter my shelves, windowsill and desk , I go through all my things and will throw away items I feel I don’t need anymore or no longer have value to me. At first, I found it very hard to part with most of my belongings as I have a tendency to keep everything I own because I feel it means a lot, or might come in handy later..
But this behaviour is a big NO-NO! To get over this, I followed Marie Kondo. She has a technique where you hold the item in your hands and you ask yourself, “Does this bring me joy?” If the answer is yes, then you keep it, if its no, then you chuck it. If you have to think about it for a long time, the answer is probably no… So get on it!
If you’ve gotten this far, then WELL DONE! I’M SUPER PROUD OF YOU! 😀
At this point, we should be coming to the end of this post. So I’d like to say a big thanks to you for taking the time to read this post and I hope you enjoyed it! If you did enjoy it, please give it a like, a comment or even a share! I’d really appreciate it 🙂
Thanks again! See ya x
