Tips On Organizing Clutter
Get Rid The Junk
There is probably a lot of junk just sitting there in your room which you know you don’t need, but are too lazy to throw them away. Half of that clutter is probably due to that - unwanted pamphlets, old newspapers and magazines, disgusting dirty used-up tissue papers, paper mails, menus of restaurants that are now closed, and so on. Clearing this up will definitely open up a lot of space in your sweet little room that your mommy built up for you.
Use Your Wardrobe
First things first, the floor is not for keeping your clothes and the wardrobe is not meant for hiding away from your girlfriend or wife. There’s a reason why a wardrobe is called a wardrobe and a floor is called a floor. Help yourself, come out of the wardrobe, pick up your clothes from the floor and put them into your wardrobe, neatly. Don’t just stuff them. Organize your clothes and make sets. Place each of the set where it rightly should be. Keeping things where they belong is an easy way to manage clutter.
Make Your Bed Every Morning
Every morning, does your bed give you the feeling that you went into a freestyle wrestling competition with a pig on it? Start making your bed as a routine. Deal with whatever seems out of place, right from putting those pillows by your head side, to brushing off the dust, and straightening those tiny oceanic waves formed on the bed sheet that seems hit by a cyclone. Doing this on a daily basis will clear up the clutter and make your room look a lot nicer and cleaner.
Set Cleaning Tasks
Depending on how severe a clutter you make, set aside weekly or fortnightly cleaning days to get rid off that mess. Do your laundry and get the stink and stains out of your clothes. Vacuum your floor, your carpet, your bed, your couch and everything you can lay your hands onto. Dirty and messy room radiates negative energy. So, get rid of the disorder before you become all negative and depressed.
Hire House Boy/ Maid
Too lazy to do all that or too busy to get time off from those long hours at work - hire a house boy or a maid to do these daily chores for you, while you sit back and relax or work your brains off at the office. You’re bound to have a pair or two of your favorite clothes that you had given up from your list and tagged, ‘missing’. However, make sure that the maid or the house boy is a reliable person, lest you start losing on your expensive stuffs on the name of cleaning.
