How To Declutter your Room in 9 Minutes Flat!

Grab a bin. Or a laundry basket.  Or a box. Something easy to hold and deep, that will fill plenty.

Going clockwise around the room, pick up everything that doesn’t belong and throw it in the bin. This works great for toys, but clothing can get tossed in there, as well as makeup, jewelry, and anything that simply doesn’t go there.

You’ll be able to declutter your room, and take two minutes, tops.  Stash the bin in a closet for emergencies and family get togethers, or spend about 5 minutes putting things where they need to be in that room.

The toys that do go in that room, put back in the toy chest. The jewelry gets put in the jewelry box.  Leave the dirty laundry in the bin.

Are there things from other rooms in there?  Great.  Take the bin and go to those rooms, and put things back.  Make your last stop by the laundry room, and dump the rest of the clothing in the washing machine. Simple, easy, and hassle free.

If your child happens to be a teenager, or rambunctious boy, the room probably smells of dirt, sweat, and dirty laundry.  It happens.

To remedy this, take a dryer sheet and put one in the bottom of every drawer, at least one at the bottom of a dirty laundry bin, and a few in the closet, wrapped around a hanger or discretely taped to the back of the wall.

Sound extreme?  Maybe, but dryer sheets are cheap and easy to replace.  Just try it and see the amazing different it makes as they slowly release the scent into the air.  Change them once a week to once ever two weeks, and you’ll be far more willing to step into your child’s bedroom
