Peaceful Sanctuary

I've been thinking about this for awhile, and I really do believe that your bedroom should have some priority.

 

It's easy to dump things in the bedroom when you're focused on picking up the rest of the house. Company doesn't usually get to wander in your bedroom, so why not? It's a quick fix.

 

But while the bedroom is often the last room to get cleaned, it probably should be the first. It's the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning, and the last thing to see before you go to sleep. Clutter and chaos are not soothing or calming.

 

So, today, I finally got around to cleaning our bedroom. Sheets washed, furniture decluttered and dusted, floor vacuumed. I even moved a couple things around to make more sense of them. And now I've been looking at the room and wondering why it took me so long to do this.

 

It feels really good.

OMG----this is exactly what I need to do!! My husband and I are booklovers and we have books everywhere-----I try to put them in baskets and shelves but they are overflowing. You are so right that the bedroom should be peaceful and calming. This cleanout is definitely on my to-do list!!

I have a bookcase in the bedroom, too. Not sure if I always like it there, but I love my books!
