Quick Tips! Tidying Up

Jun 25, 2013

If there's something that no one likes to think about, it's cleaning their room, but keeping your space neat won't just keep your parents happy - it'll make you feel good as well! Check out these tips on how to tidy up in flash!

Organize and Prioritize

When it comes to be able to tidy up in no time, it helps if you have a method of organizing your stuff - then you can just throw things where they belong. For example, if you haven't got them already, you may want to buy some organizers, like:

  • boxes (you can buy some that store things under your bed, so it's out of sight-out of mind)
  • shelves (if you love books, you're going to need some of these)
  • envelopes

Pro-Tip: Remember to put the things that you use the most - whether it's sports equipment or stationary, in easy reach. This means you won't be rifling in the back of your closet and instantly making more mess when you need to get a hold of it.

Fold It and Forget It

A great way to make sure that you're able to get those clothes off the floor quickly is to rotate your closet according to season, so in summer bring all those shorts and tanks to the front and stuff those old winter coats in the back. It'll make organizing your clothes easier.

Pro-Tip: Have a laundry basket or bag in your room, so it's none of your clean clothes on the floor mix in with your dirty ones, and on laundry day you'll be ready to go right away!

Change Is Good

One of the second largest culprits for things ending up on the floor after clothes, is change. And guess what, if you have a jar, bowl or even a piggy bank to collect it all in, you'll have a secret little stash for when you're short on cash.

Paper Trail

Another big problem a lot of us have is too many papers, if it's not homework, it's letters, magazines and notebooks - somehow all that paper really piles up.If you have room in your desk drawers and shelves for all the paper, use envelopes and folders to organize them, but if not you can always buy binders.

Color coding is a eye-pleasing way to organize paperColor coding is a eye-pleasing way to organize paper

Pro-Tip: If your mess-making vice is getting crafty, and you have loads of craft supplies, then that should get a box all on its own - all those pencil crayons, paints, glues should be together.
