Get Organized in 2012 – Week 7

I don’t know about where you are from, but here, Winter has finally arrived. It makes me want to climb in bed and cover up to stay warm. What a dream to stay in bed and read or watch TV all day and forget the freezing wind outside.

If that’s your plan too, then maybe it’s time to do a little more organizing in your bedroom. A few weeks back you organized your nightstand and dresser. Let’s look at the other areas of your bedroom. You want it to be a place of serenity, not chaos and clutter.

Week 7

Day 1. Start by looking around the room, at the areas that you decluttered a few weeks ago. How do they look? Staying organized takes maintenance. Take a few minutes today to maintain those spaces.

Day 2 and 3. Do things land on the floor? Is there a pile? Examine what’s in the pile. Why do you put clothes on the floor? Would you hang things on hooks if they were available. Are there piles of reading material? Maybe a bookcase would help you maintain a clear floor. Take two days to sort through and find homes for these items.

Day 4. Do you have enough lighting in your bedroom? Sometimes another lamp or a brighter bulb would make all the difference. What a easy fix!

Day 5. Do you have a chair in the space? Do you sit in it or is it a repository for other things. Think about why you do this. Clear the chair and start sitting in it to read, relax or watch TV, so it really is a chair and not just a hamper or extra desk.

We will both brave the cold weather and bedroom decluttering together. We can do it!
