Do It Yourself: How to clean and organize your messy room

Does your room look like a tornado hit it?  Does your mom always nag you by saying, “You need to clean your room.” Well, here is a do it yourself guide to how to clean and organize your  messy room.

First, gather all of your supplies. You will need a dust rag, furniture polish, laundry basket, a few boxes, a few sheets of lined paper, (for labels), a pen, tape, clean bed sheets, trash bags, a cup( to put your pens and pencils in), and a vacuum cleaner.

After you have gathered all the supplies you need, you can start cleaning.  Go to your bed, and take off the dirty sheets, and put them into your laundry basket. Take your clean sheets and make your bed.  Then gather all of your dirty clothes that are lying around your room. Put them into your laundry basket along with your dirty sheets. When all of your dirty clothes are picked up, take your basket into the laundry room and start a load of laundry.

Once you have started your laundry, go back into your room, pick one of the boxes, and create a label called “books.” Take a piece of tape and put the label on the box. Start cleaning by picking up any books that you see lying on the floor. Continue cleaning by removing all your books from your book case. Put the books into the box with the books that you found on the floor. The next step is to dust your bookcase. Put a small amount of furniture polish on your dust rag and dust your bookcase.

When the bookcase is dry from the polish, slowly go through your box of books, during this time, look at your books, and ask yourself “Do I read this book a lot?” “Do I really need this book?” If the answer to these questions is “Yes,” then return the book to the bookcase. If you do not need this book, put it into another box, be sure to create a label such as: “give away.”  Or “charity.” And tape the label onto the box. While you are cleaning, if you find anything else you do not want put that item(s) into this box, consider giving these unused or unwanted things to  one of your favorite charities.  By the time you are finished going through your books, go back to your laundry,  and check to see if your clothes need to be put into the dryer.  If this is the case, do so, then start a new load. Then go back into your room. Look around and pick up any trash that needs to be put into a trash bag(s). When this is done, take the bag(s) out to the trash bin outside.

Thirdly, pick up any notebooks, pens, and pencils that are lying around. Put your notebooks on your bookshelf or neatly on your desk. Put your pens and pencils into a cup. Put your cup on your desk.

When you hear your dryer go off, bring your clothes back into your bedroom and fold them, put them into your dresser drawers, or your closet. Go back into your laundry room and start another load of laundry, once it is done, put the clean items away.

Lastly, vacuum the whole room, this includes any rugs that you might have in your bedroom. Once you are done vacuuming, return the vacuum to its proper location, take the box of charity items into another room to be stored, and return any other cleaning supplies to its proper place. Come back into your room, look around. It should look clean now, so enjoy your new cleaned and organized room.
