Opt for Storage Under the Bed
Get more mileage out of the horizontal space in your bedroom with sliding or rolling under bed storage bins. It’s a great extension of your closet, allowing you to rotate your seasonal items or even store bigger, bulkier items like backpacks, purses and blankets. Plus, the storage hidden if you have a bedskirt. Stick a label on the outside of each container so when you peek under the bed you’ll know exactly what you’re looking at. Short on linen closet space? Another idea is to keep extra sheets for your bed here.
Tame the Shoe Pile
Get Your Jewelry in Order
If your necklace collection has outgrown its jewelry box, but you don’t have enough for a jewelry armoire, try a hanging organizer. These organizers usually come with or snap onto a hanger and have plenty of clear pockets so nothing gets tangled. Earrings, rings, bracelets and even watches will all have a home here. Added bonus: Having it in your bedroom closet encourages you to wear jewelry more often.

Make Your Bed Every Day
Remember when Mom used to force you to make your bed each morning? She was practicing the basic tenet of staying organized. According to Julie Morgenstern, “Don’t think of [organization] as ‘putting things away,’ but think of it as positioning [something] for its next use.” Treat your bed as the sanctuary it is by positioning it for use every day. If you spend three minutes each morning to tuck and fold, you’ll develop a habit of keeping order in the room, which may translate into motivation for picking up the pile of clothes on the floor.
