Cleaning your room can be one of the most annoying and boring things ever. But have you wondered why it becomes so untidy in the first place? Well, it is because of your bad habits. If you mended your ways, built a routine and maintained it, you wouldn’t have to clean so much clutter every week. So here are some of the easiest steps to keep your room clean and tidy.

1. Make your bed

The first thing anyone would notice in a bedroom is obviously the bed. If your bed is untidy, it makes the entire room look untidy. Make it a point to make your bed every morning so that you don’t come home to a messy bed after a tiring day at work or college. To remind yourself that you need to clean your room, leave the displaced items on your bed so that you are left with no choice than to clean it up if you want to get in bed.

2. Keep food out of your room

One of the most common mistakes you do is bringing food into the room. It not only makes the room dirty, but also attracts ants, cockroaches and all sorts of other insects. Bugs in a room is a serious problem so do not let that happen. If you’ve brought food already, do not leave the plates and wrappers on the side table of bed. Take them back to the kitchen and throw away all garbage.

3. Put things back where they belong

If you could practice this habit, you will never have to worry about a messy room ever again. For example, your CDs belong in the entertainment unit and not your bed, so put them back there. Make it a habit to clean whatever mess you’ve created by picking all the stuff up and putting them back in place. If you can’t do it right away, at least pick them all up before bed. This way, you will not have to keep cleaning your room every weekend.

4. Break your old habits

Bad habits are the main cause of a messy room. Work on a resolution and list down all things you need to do to keep your room clean. For example, put dirty clothes in the wash basket, pick up things as soon as you see it, put garbage into bins, put books back on shelf etc. If you do your part, then you would never have to worry about cleaning your room frequently. How hard could that be?
