I'm sorry to say that the messiest room in our house is our bedroom. I long to have one of those bedrooms that, when company comes over, I can leave the door open and invite guests to lay their coats upon my luxurious bed and gaze at my lovely furnishings.
Instead, I have this:
And it's even worse when we have company, because all the odds and ends of junk from the other rooms gets stuffed into our bedroom. And it often never leaves.
In fact, our bedroom has few redeeming qualities except for the color, the window treatments, and a shelf I like a lot. So this month I'm joining the 28-Day Organizing Challenge at Organizing Junkie. I really, really need motivation to get this room in order. It's hard to tell your kids to clean your room when your own room looks like a pigsty. In fact, the kids have pointed this out once or twice. My response is always something like, "I have to keep the whole rest of the house clean." But really, it's obscene. So, I have 27 days now to totally transform this room. Wish me luck! Perhaps by the end of the month I could actually leave our bedroom door open when we have dinner guests…
