Organizing: Room Edition

This was the state of my room a few days ago, whoops!
**Sidenote: I had not fully unpacked from my Colorado trip (hey I was trying to preserve all the memories), and yes that was at the end of January, no judging.**
So needless to say, my rooms needed some cleaning up. Now to tackle a mess of this size, here are a few helpful tips that help me out without losing my shit.

+First off, you need some jams to keep you pumped, I personally prefer Spice Girls radio on Pandora (you're welcome).

+Next, organize and tackle clothes first. Separate the clean & dirty clothes (if you can't tell, just wash it), I like to separate my whites/colors/jeans so creating piles or baskets is helpful.

+Once you separate them, get that mess out of the room, either put it in your laundry room (or in the washer if you're ambitious) and fold any clean clothes to put away.

+Next, focus on the nooks (like my makeup area and nightstand).

**Note: Since you're cleaning, this is the perfect time to get rid of the crap you don't need anymore.**

+Now you must hydrate! You are probably exhausted at this point, go pour yourself a glass of wine, you deserve it!

+Finally, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Put away everything in it's place and complete all the final touches.

YAY! You survived and so did I, phew! That was quite the task, but I'm proud because I was able to organize not only my room, but all my makeup as well! The feeling you get after cleaning, just makes the room peaceful and quaint, I love it!

Thanks to Steph for inspiring me to get more organized, I still need to order some of those nifty hangers that she has to make my closet look nicer!

  1. Look how much you accomplished!! It looks great!!!

  2. I won't lie to you--that's pretty dang impressive. I used to love how my room felt just after cleaning it. It's less satisfying now that I'm married and we are pretty boring when it comes to our bedroom--(wow, that came out wrong)--but it never really gets messy now somehow. Now back in the day? You couldn't see my floor. And don't ask me what the desk in the living room looks like (which happens to be our catchall). I make no apologies! :)

  3. Loved this post! I always jam out when I'm cleaning/organizing! :)
