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!

I have to keep sites where I have any kind of interaction with people I haven't met face to face a secret, and it gets hard sometimes because I'm on quite a few roleplay sites which obviously involve chatting/interacting with people. I trust everybody on those sites though, but try telling my mom that.     My parents have gotten a lot better since then, but they're still strict about the chat sites and all. My mom is still very strict, but not nearly as much as then. I guess it's because I've gotten older. I'll be 13 in a few days. c: ALSO. If any of you saw my other post, pretend you didn't xD For some reason I thought I'd posted the original forum post. xDD I guess that's what happens when you haven't been on a site in a couple of years, you start forgetting things.

    I know exactly how you feel.  I'm going through the same thing. The thing to know is none of it's your fault.  And you can visit your mom or your dad.  You can try to get your mind of it by hanging out with your friends at school.  I feel your pain.   And I feel bad that this kind of stuff happens in life.  But god will make everything better. :)
