Give your master bedrooms a refresh. Purging clutter, setting up organizing systems, and clearing out the dust bunnies from underneath the bed will give you a fresh perspective about your Master Bedroom.
Once completed, your newly organized master bedroom will be simple, clean, and clutter free. Don’t keep clothes in the dresser drawers (keep them all in the closet), no more book shelves in there anymore, and the room will be free of excess clutter. You will create a peaceful environment where you are able to unwind after a long day. That is the goal. Make this space a calming place where you can relax. Here are the steps that will get you there.
THE ORGANIZING PROCESS
1. PREPARE: Collect 5 laundry baskets/boxes and label as follows.
- Keep – Everything that stays in the room.
- Trash – Things that need tossed in the trash (or recycled).
- Donate – Everything that you are donating or giving to someone else.
- Clothes – ALL clothes that stay in the room.
- Other – Everything that goes to another room in the house.
2. SORT: Concentrating on one hot spot at a time, empty the space completely.
Under the bed – Pull everything out and sort it into the baskets. Try to keep this space empty and free of dust!
Dresser drawers – Pull out all of the clothes and empty onto the bed. Sort through each piece of clothing. Does it fit? Do you still wear it? If not, donate it! Fold and place the clothes back into the drawers (like items together).
Night Stands – Empty out the drawers and the top of the stand. Clean it off, wipe it down, and only put back the necessities back!
Dresser top – Clean it off, going through each item thats on there. Sort though using the basket system. Wipe clean and put back only necessary items. This is a clutter hot spot. This is the first area people notice when walking into the bedroom! Try to keep it clear of the clutter.
All other hot spots in the room – Using the basket system, go through what’s left of the room.
- Clean the windows, blinds & mirrors
- Wipe down doors, baseboards, doorknobs and switch plates
- Dust Dressers & nightstands
- Wash Bed Linens, curtains, bedskirt
- Vacuum mattress/flip mattress
- Wash pillows, sheets & comforters
- Clean ceiling fan & lighting
