How to properly DE Clutter your dresser top

Hello and Happy Saturday!

So, if your dresser have looked anything like mines in the past (hot mess) then it is definitely time for a little organization therapy. I have been struggling for a long time trying to find simple ways to organize my dresser top and keep it DE cluttered. It became so cluttered with cosmetic products, jewelry, mail, books, receipts, pictures, cd’s, dvd’s, clothes, I mean you name it and it was on my dressers.



Once I started the organization process awhile back, life has become so much easier and I feel great about the progress I've made and how I have maintained it.

Your bedroom is a place where visitors usually don’t go, so it becomes a super comfort spot. It’s so easy to lose control of all the clutter. Here are some efficient tips that have helped me along the way. Take breaks as you go through the steps; you don’t want to overwhelm yourself. 


Remove everything from your dresser top. It’s best to place everything in boxes or containers to sort through later, and also to avoid a huge mess in your room. Organize as the items are being put into your boxes. All the paper clutter in one box, clothes in another, cosmetics products in separate container. This step will save you time later when your getting ready to go threw them and put them the items in the proper places. 


Once everything is cleared off, clean and dust the space with the appropriate cleaners. Now you have a clean dresser top and you can decorate it with a picture or book or two, candles, or your favorite perfumes.

I use a container I brought from Target to store other items I don't want just laying around. Everything does not need to be on the dresser, so don’t over clutter. If you don’t use it regularly then store it in containers or in the closet. If you don't use it at all then throw it away.
