Whether your dresser is spewing out clothes or your nightstand is buried under books, choose one area to clean first and stick with it until it’s finished.
Have the right ‘tools’
Getting your room cleaned and organized will be much easier if you have the right tools on hand. Some suggestions to come with:
- Bags for trash, recyclable items, items to be donated and items that belong somewhere other than your room
- Cloths and cleaning products for cleaning surfaces
- A vacuum or broom to clean the floor
If cleaning is not your idea of fun, try motivating yourself with a reward. Perhaps coffee with a friend, 30 minutes of relaxing, or something that you feel is a treat.
