We are now into the fourth week of the Clear the Clutter Challenge!  For this week, I am focusing on how to declutter a master bedroom. If you missed the other previous weeks, check out week one, two, and three.

Last week, Kate shared some great tips for decluttering a kid’s space and what to do without a playroom. I also loved her thoughts on embracing your season of motherhood and toys.

Clear the Clutter Challenge- Organizing without a playroom

Jaclyn shared some amazing tips for decluttering with kids. I loved her advice to involve the kids! This is key because it teaches your kids the importance of decluttering.

We absolutely loved Two + Me & You’s playroom post. The dress up clothes area was a favorite of mine. I loved how she used her space so well and used containers to store items. Make sure to head over to read all of her tips!

Now onto the master bedroom

The master bedroom is a place of relaxation and comfort. A couple years ago, I heard a speaker share how she was focusing on creating her master bedroom to be a place they loved. After hearing her say that, I realized I had given little attention to our master bedroom.

I have some goals for the decor of this room, including building a bed frame for the bed, but I am pleased with how the room is slowly coming together.

Often this room can become cluttered and out of sorts because it is not one of the main areas of the house.

Master bedroom decluttering, tips and tricks

Focus on these zones within your master bedroom: 

Dresser Top- The tops of dressers are magnets for clutter. Clear everything off and evaluate what should be on your dresser. Ours holds my jewlery box, a bowl as a catch all for my husband’s random things, and some candles.

Closet & Drawers- While we will be going more into depth with decluttering clothes later in the challenge, I did go ahead and go through the drawers. I will share more on this area later but remember, take everything out! If you do not love it, let it go.

Nightstand- These are the other clutter magnets in the master bedroom. A nightstand really only needs to hold a few things: a clock, note pad, pen, light, decor you love, and book. Keep only the items you actually need at night.

Under the Bed- This is the forgotten space but it needs just as much attention as the other spaces. If you like to use under your bed for storage, consider using nice containers such as these clear plastic ones.

Magazines/Books- I love to read before bed so my Kindle and books are at the night stand. Since the space is small, I am limited to what is held here. The key with keeping the magazine and book clutter away is not letting it pile up. While I love to save my favorite books, I do try to donate ones that I did not love. With magazines, I tear out recipes to try and then recycle the magazine.

  1. The master always seems to be the last room anyone works on! I finally spent a little money on ours last spring but it would help a lot if we had somewhere else to put the dog crate! I love all the tips you shared!

  2. Great job! Our bedrooms really should be a welcoming and relaxing place!

    Try dropping off your old magazines to Meals on Wheels. The recipients love to get new reading material and it gives your magazines one more life!
