Today it’s time to take a look at the master bedroom. Clutter in this room is unacceptable. This is your sanctuary, the place you go to rest and rejuvenate yourself. It should not be in disarray.

In fact, there should be nothing in here except your clothes, your bed and a good book or two. It is designed for relaxing and who can relax with four piles of unfolded laundry, a half empty suitcase teetering on the edge of the chair and a box of tax returns in the corner?

Decluttering the Master bedroom.

Get everything out of your room that doesn’t belong.
Empty the drawers of your night stands, armoire, dresser, bureau, whatever. Purge what you don’t want, need or use. Sort through the rest and put it back neatly.

Strip the linens off the bed. You’re in here, might as well get a little laundry done, too. Drag anything out from underneath your bed and sort through it. How can you get a good night’s sleep when you are lying atop clutter?

Vacuum your mattress. Then, flip it and vacuum the other side. Wow. Do you feel a sense of accomplishment? It feels good to do the things you hear about on TV shows but never have time for.
