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?
How do you organize your bedroom the frugal way?
