Organize Your Bedroom After Downsizing

Organize Your Clothes

One of the best ways to start your new organization journey is to tackle the closet. Clothing is one of the main components of a cluttered bedroom, but here’s what you can do about it:

  • Gather all your clothes in one place.
  • Make piles of “keep” “donate” or “toss.”
  • As you go through each article of clothing, ask yourself if you really need it.
  • Once you have your small pile of keep, you can start organizing your items.

No Closet, No Problem

Not everyone has a bedroom closet, which presents its own organizational problems, but sometimes you have to make the best of your situation. A little creativity comes in handy and here are some closet alternatives:

  • Wardrobes
  • Dressers
  • Under the bed storage

Make Your Bed Multi-Purpose

Your bed is definitely one thing in your bedroom you can’t get rid of, but you can make it serve more than one purpose. As we mentioned before, you can use the underneath of your bed for storage by either getting a bed with built-in drawers or using tote bins to store personal items.

Shelving is Your Friend

If you can’t go low under your bed then go high on the walls. Shelving can be a quick and easy storage solution to help you get organized.

Final Thoughts

A common misconception about downsizing is that it’s all about getting rid of all your stuff, but that’s not true. It’s more about how you keep and organize what you have.
