Yes! Today is day thirteen of Organize your Home in 31 Days the Frugal Way! We are on to the bedroom and will approach the task with simplicity and frugality! Taking the step to organize your bedroom should be easy now that you have organized your clothes on day eight.
Let’s start with the purpose of a bedroom. Obviously, the main purpose is to have a place to sleep. Most bedrooms have furniture and closets to store clothing so that is another purpose for a bedroom. For me, the third purpose of my bedroom is a place of peace and tranquility. A place I can get away from the constant hustle and bustle of the activity of my home to my bedroom retreat.
The purpose of your room may be different however make sure you know what the purpose is and keep only those things needed in the bedroom to accomplish its purpose. I don’t keep a television in my room because it would defeat the purpose of being a retreat for me but I do find reading extremely relaxing and therefore there needs to be a place to store books in my bedroom. See what I am getting at?
Organize Your Bedroom
- Step one is to remove anything in your bedroom that does not fit with the purpose of the room. Either, place them in a more appropriate spot in your home or consider donating the items to a charity or a friend.
- Step two is to address your storage needs. Can all your clothes fit in your drawers or closets? Do you have under bed storage? If not it is time to sort through the items and give them to someone who needs them more. You won’t be able to stay organized if you have too much stuff.
- In step three, evaluate your bedroom to see if you need to add anything, like a clock, tissues on the night stand, a plant on a sunny windowsill, throw blanket or more lighting. Don’t go out and purchase these things rather shop your home to see if you can borrow a light or storage container from another room. Be creative and see how nice you can make your bedroom now that it is organized!
