Spring Clean Your Bedroom

Springtime means fresh flowers, fresh air and a fresh start. What better time to clean out your room and get rid of all that old junk that’s clogging up your space and your life? Here are some tips to help get the spring cleaning started!

Pick a Day

Check your calendar and pick a day (on the weekend when you’re not busy with school and homework may be best) to do your spring cleaning. Commit to it and don’t procrastinate or change your mind!


Write a List

Before you start, make a list of things you want to accomplish during your spring cleaning. This could include sorting through all your clothes and getting rid of the ones that don’t fit anymore or that you don’t wear, wiping down your window inside and out, cleaning out your hamster’s cage, vacuuming the carpet, changing your bed sheets, etc.


Invest in Organizers

Before you start, head to your local dollar or discount store and pick out some new storage containers, bins, baskets, closet organizers, etc. After all, you can’t organize things unless you have a place to put them.


Three Boxes

On the day of spring cleaning, get three empty cardboard boxes and label them “garbage,” “goodwill” and “out of place.” As you clean out your closet, desk and under your platform bed, start filling up the boxes with things you either plan to throw out (“garbage”), give away to charity (“goodwill”) or need to find a new place for (“out of place). As soon as you’re done sorting and cleaning, take the “garbage” box out to the garbage, head down to your favorite charity and donate your “goodwill” (or call and ask to have them pick up your stuff, if possible) and find the right place to put your “out of place” stuff.


One Spot at a Time

Don’t try to clean your whole room at once. The day will go faster if you concentrate on one area at a time, like your closet first, then under your bed, then your desk, etc.


Rearrange Your Room

Spring cleaning isn’t just a time for throwing out junk and tidying up – it can also make a great excuse to rearrange your furniture and belongings for a fresh start. Try your bed out by the window or against a new wall. Move your desk to a spot where there’s more light. Get creative!


Reward Yourself

After you’ve finished spring cleaning your room, treat yourself to a little reward for a job well done!

    Umm...If she is the kind of girl that likes to talk a lot and tells everybody what is going on then the whole school will know when she finds out you like her.  I say who cares if the whole school knows you like her.  I like it if a boy tells me he likes me and ask me out.  I don't like boys trying to be sneaky coz they stink at it and end up looking stupid.  If you want to be sneaky about it you can ask her if she can help you with your homework or ask her if she wants to hang with you and your friends at the mall or you can look at her and smile and see if she smiles back at you.

    well, as a girl i know that i like it when boys are up front with there feelings. girls like to know that they can trust you to tell them the truth no matter who's watching you.  that may show that you really do like her. if you need to do it privately, then mabey if you do any after school activities and she does then ask her then. jojo(:
