Establish a Cleaning Routine
One of the first steps to keeping your room clean is to create a cleaning routine. You can either follow a method that you’ve used in the past, or you can try something new. Whether you prefer to clean your room in sections or you prefer to clean everything at once, you should make a routine that works well for you and your schedule. If you have a roommate or housemate, you should make sure they are a part of your cleaning routine as well. You want to make sure that everyone in the household is doing their part when it comes to keeping the house clean.
Create a No-Brainer Chore List
Once you’ve established your cleaning routine, you can then create a no-brainer chore list. A chore list is essential for keeping your room clean and organized. If you don’t have a cleaning schedule, it’s likely that your room will stay messy and disorganized. The most effective way to create a chore list is to make sure you include all regular cleaning tasks as well as one-time tasks such as doing laundry and cleaning out your desk. Once you create a chore list, you should make it a point to check off each task as you complete it. This will help you stay accountable and motivated to continue cleaning your room and keeping it clean.
Only Bring in the Things You Use and Love
The minute you purchase something, you are responsible for getting rid of something. When you bring something new into your room, you must remove something else. This rule applies to everything in your room, including decorations, clothes, and other items. If you love a certain piece of artwork or a certain item, then by all means, bring it into your room. However, if you do not love a certain item and do not have a use for it, then you must get rid of it. You want to keep your room clean and organized, and having too many items in your room can make it feel cluttered and messy.
Set Up Strategic Storage Spaces
As you only bring in the things you love and use, it’s essential that you have a place to put them. The best way to set up storage spaces for your belongings is to make sure you have enough places to store your items. It’s best to have a variety of different storage options. Some of the most common storage options include utilizing drawers, bookshelves, and closets. Make sure you have enough storage space, as having too few places to store your items can leave your room feeling cluttered and disorganized.
Don’t Forget to Breathe!
Lastly, remember to breathe. Getting stressed out over cleaning your room is not worth it. Instead of getting frustrated and angry with the mess in your room, try to focus on the positive. Having a clean and organized room can be very beneficial to your health and well-being. Having a clean room will also help you reduce your stress levels, as a messy and disorganized room can be very stressful to live in.
