KEEP IN MIND

  1. 1
    Do not be a pack rat. Some people value things so much that they want to keep it for the rest of their lives.
    There is nothing wrong with that. However, keeping an eraser given by a grade two friend, or holding on to that red bulky plastic car that has no more wheels won't make your room tidier. Let go, think of the things that you have in your room that you do not currently need. If you can dispose them, if you do not want to dispose them, consider moving them to the basement. This is one of the biggest problems of people with messy rooms, they tend to hold and keep those unnecessary things.

    Sort up your things. Arrange your things.
    Give or design an order of your things. Keep those things that you always use close to you. Always keep this in mind, keep the things you use daily closer, arrange things according to their use, dispose unnecessary things.

  3. 3
    Clean up your room. When we say clean up, we mean, get rid of all the dust, mud, and all the impurities from your room.
    There should be no scratch paper on floor, or a bottle of beer, or some loose tissue. Cleaning up your room would give you a bigger space too.

  4. 4
    Make it a habit. Sorting, setting things in order and cleaning are difficult tasks.
    However, if you keep doing them everyday, it would only take so much of your efforts and time and once you do it everyday, it will become part of your habit. Once it will be part of your habit, you will do it without any efforts at all.

    Clothes should be in the closet. Shoes should be in the shoe rack .
    Books should be in the bookshelf. The Laptop and the Tablet should be on the table. All things in their proper place. Nothing out of place. Another thing, crumpled paper, used cups and used chopsticks from delivery should be in the garbage can.

    Space Maniac.
    Space not enough?
    If your room is small, keep in mind that space is important. Unnecessary things that take up space in your room should be removed. Also, don't be afraid to shuffle your stuffs around to determine which order takes up less space, but keep in mind that your preference should be considered, too.

This way, you'll be more motivated to keep your room organized and clean.
