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!

    If you're having issues on KW then you can always report, ignore/delete, and block the person! Also let the moderators/admin know you're having issues! Same goes with most other places online.  It's also a good idea to tell an adult; you don't deserve to go through this! Whether it be a parent, a friends parent, teacher, principal, counsellor, family member, police officer, any trusted adult!  Unfortunately we here cannot stop what is going on for you, but we can remind you that you can get through this and things will get better. Keep your head up, and stand up for yourself. Take care. :)
