    The first thing would be to take a good hard look at items and purge. Then invest in some storage options like vacuum bags, thin hangers, double closet rods, under the bed storage, wall shelves with baskets, and over the door storage are top of the list organization. Hang that wall mirror on the back of the door.

    Hi Tracy, sometimes the hardest part is to get started! Take one area at a time and decide whether you need it, love it, or can dispose of it by giving it away or recycling it. I noticed the could easily be attached to the back of the door to get you started and keep it safe from being broken. Think vertical for shelving in the room and closet area. Sort like things with like and you may find you have several items nearly alike and could do without some of them. You can use shallow cardboard boxes (or cut larger ones down to fit) under the bed for seldom used items you wish to keep. Set a timer and work for 40 minutes or so, then take a break away from it. Turn on some music you love and work to the music. Just begin!!

    Start making piles of things to keep, donate, and toss

  • I usually take everything out of the room, then I put items that I need/ love back in one at a time, in their designated areas. For example, if I want to keep pictures on the wall, I hang them immediately, this way I don't create piles for to do's. The rest is either donated or tossed.

    Throw out what is damaged, doesn't fit or you haven't used in the last few years.

    Donate what is still good but you don't NEED to keep.

    Remove everything and clean and paint. Do you have any flooring?

    Use your vertical space (walls) as much as possible without cluttering that area (amazon has some inexpensive shelfing units).

    What kind of room is this? Is this the garage?

    What I have learned is to not buy bins and place things in them, it just adds to the confusion and clutter.

    you need to decide where to start first ! you need to be able to get to your bed and so clean all that off then start culling out clothes you haven't worn in 6 month or more and those that are worn out or you no longer like and donate them then hang up the ones you have left or fold them and place in drawers or containers- you can buy containers and clothes hangers at the dollar stores- just give yourself a whole day and you can get it doen and once you are finished with an item, you put it back in it's place Good luck you can do this

  • I would go through everything and sort it for donation, trash or keep. Then, go through it all again and really think about what you want to keep. Then, get some sort of a closet storage set up to hang clothes/garments. You can find some nice organizational pieces at Target or Walmart with cubes, drawers, etc. for other items. I'd ask yourself what you want this room to be used for? Is it a bedroom? Craft room? Spare room for extra things? That may help you determine what to keep in the room, too.

    The hardest part is decluttering. It becomes overwhelming with so much stuff in a room. I do best to remove it all except large pieces such as beds and dressers and take everything out. Do a top to bottom cleaning and then ORGANIZE. If you don't use it regularly,, decide it its really work it and store it else where where you have more space for occasional usage items. I am the worst pack rat so I know of which I am talking. I suppose my Momma taught me well that I might need it "someday" but it sure makes your life miserable when you have all that clutter around.

    When I'm doing one of my patients rooms, I start by hanging up all the clothes or putting them in dresser drawers. At the same time, ask yourself if you've worn it in the last year, and if not consider letting it go to make room for something new. If your closet is too small, consider putting a second rod in the closet to put tops on top, and bottoms on bottom rod. I use the top shelf and plastic crates to store out of season clothing.

    I would screw that mirror on the back of the door to prevent it falling over and breaking. Pick up some plastic clips to screw in.

    Remove all obstacles that can result in a trip or fall.

    If more storage is needed, consider adding an underbed storage box, or a couple old drawers on rollers that can be used to store shoes, extra linens, and out of season clothes.

    This is a perfect time to dust and vacuum. Launder curtains, and wipe blinds, and clean windows. If your room is dusty, add an air filter to refresh the air.

    Improve bedroom decor to make it more comfortable to enhance your sleep. If money is an object, check local thrift stores as people change their decor and donate there old ones, and then families donate loved ones items when they pass they don't need. Adding a bedside table with drawers will also give you some handy storage, a place for a bedside lamp and a clock.

    Put down the phone, get off the internet, shut off the tv and put on some nice music. If it is not necessary to maintain life on this planet, get rid of it. You already know what to do next. Have fun.

    It can be overwhelming, trying to clean a cluttered space. The others are right about that. Decluttering can also be overwhelming. You can start by removing everything that doesn't need to be in your room. I like to approach my ongoing struggle with clutter by figuring out what actually needs to be in there. For example, I read in bed every night. Which means a nightstand with a lamp, room for my glass of water, storage. If I think of each area based on what it's used for, it helps me focus. Maintain each space as you clear it, and you will create what works for you! Remember it's an ongoing process and you can do it!
