If you want to do some cleaning around your house, you should give yourself a better system in order to keep your home cleaner from that moment on. There are tons of organization tips and cleaning tips you can use to keep each room in your home looking spotless. Let’s take a look at a few of them for the different parts of your home:
When getting started on the bathroom, you will first want to clean out your medicine drawer. You most likely haven't opened it in a while and, whether you know it or not, medication can expire. You will want to throw out all the things that you completely forgot you had. As far as your bathroom sink goes, throw out any makeup or skincare products that might be outdated as well. Check out your shower and bottom drawers and discard anything that you don't use or no longer need. Try to move all the items you use often up to where you can easily access them. Consider buying small baskets or plastic containers to hold your products and items that you need to use on a daily basis. If you want a more finished look and even more easy accessibility, add labels. There will be so much more storage space after you've cleaned out all your drawers. Organize everything nicely for a clutter-free bathroom.
In this room, you will want to start with your nightstands. Your nightstands should really only hold items you need. You don’t need to place anything on your nightstand other than the products and items that you use before bed. You can make space for a lamp, the book you're currently reading, night creams, or maybe an extension cord with plugs for charging your devices (though I don’t recommend you sleep next to any electronic device).
This area should not have anything but what you need immediately before bed and when you wake up. Your floor should be absent of any clothes that you might have lazily changed out of and left there. Put any worn clothes in your laundry hamper and everything else where it belongs.
When you get to your closet, you should consider getting rid of the clothes that you no longer wear. If you haven't touched it in the past year, you probably aren’t going to touch it anytime soon. Consider donating such items to either charities, friends who will appreciate them or even throwing an clothes swapping party (be creative)! De-cluttering your closet allows you to know what you have, make your mornings more desirable and most importantly save you time.
A kitchen is a place where you cook, eat, drink, and socialize therefore, you will want to keep this room tidy and functional. First and foremost you will have to plan how organized you want your space to be. Using containers, dividers for your utensils, labels will help keep everything tidy. You will first want to empty all drawers, sort through them and only keeping the items you love or need. Organizing everything by category will help maintain your living room after time passes. Once that’s completed, work your way to your counter tops and wipe them down. You want to make sure everything is tidy since it’s one of the most used spaces in your home. Decide where you want each item to be placed based on convenience and least/most used. Once that’s completed, add your items in their designated container, label them accordingly and presto change-o you’re space is organized.

THE LIVING ROOM
It can be a little hard to keep this room clean since it is where you and your guests might hang out the most and because of that, it’s important to de-clutter this area regularly. As I mentioned before, before you start you first need to figure out your plan for this space. Figure out places to put all your items and how to store all of your items like video game consoles, remotes, and board games. If your home lacks space, ottomans are great for seating and for storing all in one. They are also very cute and will add a little style to your space.
