Embrace the Seasonal Shift: Declutter Your Bedroom for Fall


Ah, September! The air gets crisper, the leaves start their colorful transformation, and the cozy ambiance of fall starts to make its way into our homes. As children return to school and daylight hours begin to wane, there's no better time than now to declutter your bedroom and make it a snug haven. Here are some easy-to-follow steps to help you turn your bedroom into a cozy, organized sanctuary:


  1. Seasonal Surface Swipe

As the nights get longer, you’ll likely spend more time in your bedroom, reading or relaxing. Start your decluttering journey by clearing all surfaces like your nightstand, dresser, and any ledges. Swipe them down with Good Vibes All-Purpose Cleaner in your favorite calming scent like Nag Champa or Sandalwood. Return only the essentials—perhaps a lamp for those earlier evenings, an alarm clock, and your current read.


  1. Fall Closet Flip

We're trading tank tops for turtlenecks and sandals for boots! Empty your closet and categorize your clothes into piles: keep for fall/winter, store for next summer, donate/sell, or toss. This seasonal swap is the perfect time to reevaluate your wardrobe. As you return items, organize them by type or even color for easier outfit creation. And here’s a pro-tip: hang your hangers backwards. If any item remains untouched on a backward hanger come spring, it's time to reevaluate its place in your life.


  1. Drawer and Shoe Reevaluation

Just as the trees let go of their leaves, let go of items that no longer serve you. Examine your shoe collection, keeping in mind the colder, possibly wetter, weather. Do those open-toe sandals really serve you in this season? Apply the same scrutiny to your drawers. If your summer PJs won't cut it for chilly nights, maybe it's time to pack them away and make room for cozier options.


  1. Nightstand Necessities

Your nightstand drawer could probably use a little attention too. With shorter days, chances are you’ll be reaching for a lip balm, hand cream, or maybe even some herbal teas. Remove everything and only put back what will truly serve you during those longer nights. Think cozy and functional—maybe a sleep mask, earplugs, or a journal to jot down your dreams or thoughts. Don't forget your glass of water for the morning.

 

 

 

 

  1. Beneath-the-Bed Basics

As you put away your summer items, you may want to utilize the space under your bed. It's prime real estate for seasonal storage. Be sure to use well-labeled containers to make it easier to swap items as seasons change. If you find relics hiding there that no longer serve you, add them to the donate or sell pile.


There you have it! Your bedroom is now ready for the seasonal shift, offering you a peaceful and organized sanctuary to relax in. Don’t forget the final touch—wiping down your surfaces and giving your floors a quick mop with Good Vibes All-Purpose Cleaner not only cleans but uplifts your mood as you nestle into your freshly-prepared, clutter-free haven.


Wishing you a fall season full of cozy nights and peaceful dreams! 🍂✨
