4 Steps to an Organized Nightstand

4 Steps to An Organized Nightstand via Clean Mama

This week’s organizing focus is the NIGHTSTAND. If you haven’t grabbed May’s FREE cleaning and organizing calendar yet, you can go here to grab it.

Your challenge this week is to take 15 minutes to tidy up your nightstand. Put the books where they belong, dust off the surface, clean off your lamp and lampshade (a lint roller works great for this!), and decide if there’s a better way to keep and store your must-have nightstand items.

Keep Books in a Basket and Small Personal Items in a Cute Dish via Clean Mama

4 Ideas for Nightstand Organization:

  • Keep a book or two on your nightstand – only your current reads are necessary. A small basket might help to keep the items where you want them.
  • Put hand lotion, lip balm, etc. in a cute container to corral these items and to keep it neat and tidy.
  • Use a drawer organizer in your drawer(s) to contain any other items.
  • If you keep your phone on your nightstand as far away from your head as possible because of possible radiation.

(Basket and dish are from Target and Bread & Wine is a favorite book from Shauna Niequist.)
