Put Dirty Clothing in a Hamper

Since time is of the essence with this quick clean, don't worry about unrolling socks, and pulling shirts right side out. These tasks are easier to do whilesorting the laundry. Just grab all of the dirty clothes and place them in the hamper.

Collect Clean Clothes and Refold or Re-Hang

Pick up any clean clothes and refold them or re-hang them in your closet. If you have a significant amount of clean clothing lying around waiting to be folded and hung, skip this step and place the clean clothing semi-neatly on your bed after you make it. You can hold your bed hostage and remind yourself to take a few minutes to put away the clothing before bed.

Throw Out Any Trash

This is not the time to determine if you're ready to trash old copies of magazines, or that pair of shoes you've needed to be repaired for two years. We're throwing away obvious trash like tissues and paper, not sorting through boxes and closets. Save the major trash sweep for when you have more time.​

Make the Bed

Yes, we know there is a major debate about whether or not tomake the bedafter all, you're just going to get back into it in a few hours! However, making the bed changes the look of a room and makes a space feel more inviting and look less cluttered. It's a small task that will make a big difference.

Pick Up Misplaced Items

Put any random items that don't belong in your bedroom into a basket, box, or bag. Don't try to take them back to their respective spots around your home one at a timejust put them all in one location for now and move on.

Straighten Surfaces

If it's been a long time since you have cleaned your bedroom, you may have a large accumulation of stuff that belongs in your room but is not in the proper place. Take a brief survey of this "stuff". If, in a minute or less, you can put it all away, do so. If not place it all in a container so that you can go through it and organize it later.

Mop, Sweep, or Vacuum

Don't move furniture tosweep or vacuum. Just do a quick run-through of your space to collect any obvious dust or debris. If you have a few minutes left over, grab the basket of "stuff" from the step above and place the items in it in their proper areas.
