Secrets to a (My) Tidy Bedroom
You know how they say that you shouldn’t have a television in your bedroom? Something about how watching before bed disrupts your sleep and how the bedroom should be a sacred place to sleep and recharge and what not. Well, I believe it. Beyond that, I think the bedroom should be clean and tidy always so it can be a respite from the chaos of life. You shouldn’t have to fall asleep surrounded by mounds of clothing or feeling like you should be taking care of the task of putting it all away. You should wake up and feel like you’re in control of your life and surroundings and your room should represent that, dammit.
I’ve been asked multiple times where all of the “stuff” in my room is. The counters are all aggressively bare and clean and the floor never has a single article of anything on it. There are no piles in corners, nothing stored under my bed (bonus points!) and it feels like a meditation studio (*embellishment*). As an extreme case of constant tidiness, I want to impart some tips for keeping this mecca in perfect shape always and the things that help me do so.
If you’re lucky enough to design the inside of your closet from scratch, Elfa closets work wonderfully! You can customize the shelves/drawers/hanging rods and pick your own adventure.
A simple solution for drawer madness is to add walls between categories. Keep the panties from the socks with a divider and keep those shirts in line with the file-folding method combined with a divider. Winningggggg.
