In your Home and Homeschool
Do you find it joyful to declutter in your Master Bedroom? If you don’t, I want you to work on how you think about decluttering in your bedroom. Some of you would just be fine with closing the door and ignoring it. But I want you to purpose in your heart to do 15 minute decluttering missions in your bedroom each day this week.
Zone 4 Missions: The Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom
Monday – Clean out under your bed. If you have a lot of stuff under there, use a timer. Ask your children to do this mission, too. Have trash bags handy for them.
Tuesday – Clear off the top of your bed, if you have things laying around on it. If you have piled stuff on your bed and moved the pile, make sure you are putting things away.
Wednesday – Declutter items from the left side of your bed.
Thursday – Declutter items from the right side of your bed.
Friday – Declutter at the end of your bed. If you still have stuff under your bed, try to deal with that during this 15 minute mission, too.
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
When you lay your head down at night, I want you to feel relaxed and peaceful. The way to get to that point is to declutter items from your bedroom.
Today’s focus is to declutter the items under your bed. Some of you use this area for things you don’t know where to put them. Work on finding another place for these items, so you can sweep or vacuum under your bed easily. Children usually shove stuff under their beds, so this is a great mission for them, too.
Do you pile laundry or stuff on your bed during the day and dump it on the floor or chair later? This is a habit I want you to get away from doing. Your bed should not be your place to toss stuff during the day, and face it, by the time you go to bed, you do not want to fold the laundry that is on your bed.
Your nightstand is the last thing you likely see at night, and it is the first thing you see in the morning. You deserve a decluttered surface beside of your bed. I have a lamp, lip balm, lotion, lavender oil, a book, and my phone plugs in near me. When I go to bed, I keep a water bottle on my nightstand as well.
Keep the things on your nightstand and dresser that you need. Resist the urge to use these flat surfaces as storage for items. Put out some of your favorite pictures on your dresser top.
If you have children at home, ask them to bring you anything from their nightstand or dresser top that they don’t use anymore. You might not get anything from them, so check their room later after you ask them to do this. I encourage my boys to use their top dresser drawer to hold the little things that they would normally put on top of the dresser.
Spend 15 minutes per mission and see what a difference this makes in your bedroom. Have a trash bag and a donation box handy. Your missions will go faster if you have something to put things in as you declutter. I want you to have joy and happiness in your bedroom!
