Clean Up Your Room Day is a holiday dedicated to making sure your bedroom is clean and tidy. Sometimes your bedroom is the room that builds up the most clutter because it’s not the place that most people see when they come to your house. You should take some time to clean up your room every once in awhile just to please yourself. Clean Up Your Room Day is also the day to do some deep cleaning that you might not do during a regular cleaning such as dusting and cleaning the windows.
“A clean room is a happy room” or as the old adage goes a clean home is a happy home.
Declutter, donate, get rid of things that no longer serve a purpose, bring you joy, or are broken. Start this day goal oriented - what are you going to tackle? What do you want to change or get rid of? What room are you going to work on for the day?
Cleaning can be either a chore that you absolutely despise or something that makes you feel better. Cleaning doesn’t have to be hard. Here are a few tips and tricks to get you started.
