Ashlee Edie, cleaning expert at Handy, says that bedrooms should be cleaned properly once a week, but to keep them in order, there are simple, short tasks you can do daily. “In the morning, make your bed and put away your pajamas,” she says. “At the end of the day, either hang up your clothes or put them in the laundry basket to stop them piling up and making the room look cluttered.” She also suggests clearing away items such as books and glasses from the nightstand on a regular basis. A neat bedroom will make you feel great. Here’s how to make your bed 10 times cozier.

Kids rooms and playrooms can get chaotic quickly, so it’s a good idea to keep on top of toy clutter. “Encourage your kids to put away their toys at night to stop mess from building up,” Edie says. “The best way to do this is with baskets where they can easily pile them in.” For ideal organization, label the bins by toy type, such as Legos or dolls. If your kids can’t yet read, add a picture of the toy under the words. Toy chests should be cleaned with a disinfectant at least twice a month, as they can be a breeding ground for germs. Here are the effortless things clutter-free people do every day.
