Keeping your room tidy

Cleaning can be a time-consuming chore; a happy environment is a clean environment. One of the most important aspects of keeping your room clean is first learning how to keep it tidy. The first step is to decide and evaluate what is essential, preferable or necessary for your room. This will help in prioritising and sorting out of things for example when you have an array of books it will be wise to set them per when you are going to use them, putting the ones you will need soon closer. Try to not to make things look spread out as it makes the room look smaller.

Getting rid of rubbish is one step away from a tidy room. If something can be thrown out, then do so. Throwing out things does not take a long time. Keep a bin in your room and make sure you regularly empty it as an overflowing bin can make a room look clumsy. Never put anything on the floor or store any trash to get rid of later just get rid of waste as it occurs.  Smell of the room is essential, you should be careful of what you put in the bins as things such as food can give a room a bad smell.

Follow the take something out and put it right back rule. Putting way things where they belong does not only help tidy but it will be easier to find the item next time you need it.

Do a monthly deep cleaning and get rid of the things that you no longer need and create space for other important things. Wipe and dust surrounding areas and tops every day to avoid any building up of dust.

Keep your drawers and lockers organised as the first step of keeping the tidiness. Whenever you take things out of the drawer make it appoint that you return it to the right place. Only store things that are useful and discard any things that are unwanted for example pieces of papers or packaging plastics that cannot be used for anything. Use glass jars and containers to store small things. At times, small items are so small to have a place allocated for them and makes the room look clumsy. Have a place for everything, do not leave anything out. Put little hooks everywhere and these can be sticker ones so need to damage the wall.
