Welcome to Day 6 of the Spring Cleaning Challenge!

Is your room relaxing and inviting or cluttered and chaotic? Now's the time to clean your own room and get that organized, too, starting with your nightstand:

  • Put away anything you don't need before bed or first thing in the morning.
  • Recycle old magazines, put books you're not reading back on the shelf or donate them, and clean out the drawers.
  • Keep anything that will create a calm atmosphere and help you sleep, such as a sleep mask, a glass for water, or a soothing candle (which you should blow out before going to bed!).
  • Remove any clutter on the floor next to the bed, change your sheets, and make your bed each day to keep your room feeling fresh and clean.

Do you have a nightstand or dresser?
Is your closet chaotic or organized?
What are your tips for keeping your room clean & inviting?

I feel like cleaning my room would take an eternity lol. We have so much stuff and nowhere to put it. But, it does need done very badly.

We just cleaned our room out last week. Dh had two bags of donate and two bags of trash. Thank goodness!

We have nightstands and dressers. My closet is mostly organized except for the mess of gifts on the floor. I have no tips to keep things clean and inviting. My room is usually a mess of clean laundry and dhs mess of dirty and who knows what else

 This one won't be so hard, needs a good dusting, clean sheets, and vacuming!  I try to keep our bedroom neat and clean weekly, makes it much nicer and restful for sleeping.

My room is clean,but I wouldn't say it was relaxing. I would say it was ugly.But untill we get the kitchen remodel done,it will have to remain clean but ugly!I don't find much relaxation in there right now!
