Day 32: Master Bedroom
Considering we have an almost 80 year old Cape Cod style house, all of the rooms are small. Our master bedroom is small. Like real small … only 11’x11! Once upon a time, we had an apartment with a walk-in closet that was 8’x10′, so our room feels super tiny. My desire is for our bedroom to feel like a sanctuary, a place where we can unwind and relax, and forget about the rest of the world for a little while.
Its not there yet.
We currently have a hamper and storage bin on the one wall in our room, and that gives us 2 flat surfaces, and you know what that means – CLUTTER!
I am planning on taking some time over the next few days to clear out that side of our bedroom and turn it back into a sanctuary again.
Here is my Spring Cleaning & Decluttering plan so that I stay accountable, and maybe it can help you out too. This is the order I need to do these tasks to make cleaning go as smoothly as possible.
- Strip the bed, wash all linens, and put away the winter comforter
- Wash the pillows
- Clean the mattress – vacuum and then spray with the Norwex Mattress Cleaner Spray
- Wash all dirty laundry in the hampers
- Take down the curtains and run them through the laundry. Rehang when the room is clean and the curtains are slightly damp (it prevents wrinkles from the dryer)
- Put away clean laundry
- Decide if the items that have cluttered up the room are trash, recycle, donate, sell, or keep.
- Put all donations aside
- Trash & Recycle go to the curb on Sunday evening
- All items in the “Keep” pile find a new home and get put away
- Dust surfaces from the ceiling and work my way down to the floor
- Vacuum up the dust and dirt on the floor
- Clean the windows
- Mop the hardwood floors
- Remake the bed with all clean pillows and linens
Are you going to spring clean your master bedroom, or just do a quick decluttering session? Which does it actually need?
