We’re concluding this month by completing the finishing touches in our bedrooms. When it comes to organizing bedrooms, this is the “fun stuff”. Here are some suggestions:

1. Make your bed. Clear off the surfaces of your furniture and place the contents on your bed. Dust your furniture. Now decorate these surfaces with only the items you really like, trying minimize your knick-knacks. Donate what is left over or try to use them in another room.

2. Dedicate a small drawer or basket for dumping the contents of your pockets each day. (This is an especially great idea for men). When the drawer or basket starts to fill, it’s time to go through it!

3. Go through your jewelry. Keep only what you like. Make any necessary repairs. Consider storing your jewelry in a shallow drawer. Use jewelry organizers like this or make your own using ice cube trays and drawer dividers from the dollar store. If you’re short on drawer space, then hang it up! I love hanging my jewelry in a hanging organizer like this one.

4. Consider rearranging your furniture or adding some decorative touches such as updating photo frames, getting some accent pillows, or using some scented relaxation candles to help you enjoy your new space!

5. Finally, if you have any other special projects that you’ve been meaning to get to in any of your bedrooms, go ahead and get them started!

Don’t forget to try to complete the finishing touches on as many of your bedrooms that your time allows!

I love the idea of making the bed, and then putting everything on top of it. One of my problems is that I’ll start a project and won’t finish it. But this way I can’t go to sleep until the job is done. Just what I need!
