This is where that made bed comes in handy. If you have a lot of clothes to refold or rehang you can neatly stack them on your bed to remind you to fold them later. This saves you a little time now, keeps the room looking neat, and makes sure you will be reminded to fold them before trying to crawl into bed.
Easy! I don’t have any clothes that need to be folded now!

If making the bed seems like a waste of time, humor me. Smooth out the sheets. Smooth out the blanket or comforter. Fluff your pillows. Stand back and take a quick look at the bed. It looks much neater, not necessarily better, just neater. On the plus side, you’re not as likely to loose things in your bed when it’s neat.
Ah, poor cat. Gotta get him off my bed. He looks so peaceful though… I got him off! I feel like a terrible person now. Oh, right! The bed! I have to make my bed!

Don’t worry about anything but trash right now. Pick up all the obvious trash and throw it in the can.
That was easy. There was just a handful of wrappers left over from halloween.

I know the dirty clothes in your room are probably near the hamper, but we want to actually put them in the hamper. Don’t worry about unfolding your socks or turning clothes right side out. We’ll do that when we sort out the laundry.
Great timing! My mom told me to put my dirty clothes in the hamper just as I got to this step.

You may already have a hamper, trash can, or toy box in your room. Use the list below to gather the things you need to clean your room. Don’t begin cleaning until you have all of your supplies in your room. Trying to find supplies one at a time is a waste of time.
I’m not going to do this step. I’m going to focus on actually cleaning before I dust and wipe down stuff.
