Today's decluttering mission is to declutter your nightstand.
This is often an area where all kinds of things get piled, from late night reading material, cups of water, your glasses and more.
Make sure to declutter the surface enough to get rid of anything that should not be there, and so you can actually access your alarm clock easily each night and morning, without fearing knocking stuff over or off!
In addition, if your bedside table or nightstand has a drawer, clear it of clutter as well. Ready, set, go!
Bonus points if you tell me what types of items normally accumulate on your nightstand and/or what you do to combat clutter and keep the space functional.
Further, below are pictures of bedside tables and night stands that readers have sent in, some of them decluttered and others that still need a bit of work, all for inspiration for you!
Eric provided this picture of his cluttered night stand.
He's not alone in piling stuff onto this spot in your home.
Other readers shared what types of things take up residence on this surface and don't seem to leave.
Do you recognize any of these items next to your own bed right now? Now, I'm not saying all of them need to be cleared off. Some of these make sense in the location, such as your alarm clock. But many of them need to be moved to a different location, or at least regularly cleared off.
My nightstand is a bookshelf and I have lots of medications and medical things needed so it gets cluttered and a mess very easily!
Ideally, the top is for drink and evening snack and a scentsy melter, first shelf is a basket of bills for the week medications, and books/magazines currently reading, and second shelf is my daughters and mine "craft" shelf- paper, markers, cross-stitch etc.
As you can see in before pic it becomes overloaded EASILY.
Just pick and choose the ones you want to do, that will make a big impact in your home. But if you want someone else to tell you the order you can also grab the 15 minute daily decluttering mission calendars and follow along as we all get our homes clutter free together!
