Follow This Organization Rule To Keep Your Bedroom Clutter-Free

Keeping your bedroom tidy can be an unpleasant chore. Between our hectic lifestyle and the sheer amount of belongings, appropriately organizing our living space can certainly be a challenge. However, there is one key organizational rule called the three-object rule, which can rejuvenate a cluttered space and prevent clutter.

It's so easy to come home from a busy day and lay your clothes and various belongings around the room. Then you get up and, in the frenzy of trying to get out in the morning, leave even more things lying around. A few days of that can clutter up a room pretty fast. Keeping the floor clean and having a designated space for everything readily available is vital to help prevent clutter from accumulating in your home

In addition, a lack of space often contributes to the mess. Many of us do not have the amount of allocated space we need. This can be because of basic affordability, or it can simply boil down to sharing a bedroom with a partner who also has many belongings. That makes staying organized even more important.

How to clean according to the three object rule

Cleaning a bedroom doesn't just involve making sure that clothes, bags, and personal items are put away. You also must do basic cleaning such as dusting, sweeping, and wiping down surfaces. Of course, you must be able to freely get to the surfaces that need to be cleaned first.

To make the job easier and your bedroom look less messy, it's best to keep displayed objects, such as knick-knacks and other personal items, to a minimum. The three-object rule says that each horizontal surface, such as a shelf, table, or windowsill, should contain three items at the most. It even goes as far as to state that having no objects is optimal. Then, you can easily move items to clean underneath them. You also will present an uncluttered space, which helps calm the noise in your room and give off soothing vibes.

Additionally, your nightstand should only contain items that are needed for you to sleep. That means tissues, a drink of water, your glasses, and an alarm clock. Anything related to work, such as books, paperwork, tablets, and even phones, should be kept away from your immediate sleeping area.
