Do you try to keep your bedroom clean?

In my case, I am a neat freak. I used to be the messiest person in my house and my parents would constantly yell at me to clean my room. Now I can't sleep on my bed if it's not made. I can't even sleep if my room isn't clean. No matter how sleepy or tired I am, I would get up and clean my room until I am satisfied, on top of that, I would even make my bed. I don't know how I developed this overtime, but I actually don't mind how crazy I sound haha. After helping my friend clean up her room for a major makeover, I'm actually kinda clean I'm clean. It was so tough to clear out all of her junk. How's your bedroom like?

Our apartment and the way it is kept is a sneak preview into what type of a couple we are. We are both strict and ensure everything is always cleaned, packed away and in it's place. I like the bedroom clean and smelling fresh

On Monday my bedroom is clean and organized. On Friday, everything is a mess and out of place! :) I can't clean my room everyday, imagine making my bed. I should do all those things, but when I get home tired, the only thing I want to do is laying down on the bed and sleep. I throw clothes and bags on the first place that I see on the closet and I'm only going to worry about them next morning.

Wow, so I'm guessing you do all your cleaning on the weekends! At least you don't have a ton of clutter from years ago like my friend.. we had a hard time throwing a bunch of old stuff out!

I am also a neat freak. I always make it to the point that everything is clean especially my bed. I love to look on my bed when it is properly made. It's like a great accomplishment for me of the day.

Hahahaha I love to look at my bed when it's made too! Especially when I walk pass my bedroom, I just can't help but to look at only my bed. It makes my bedroom look so lovely.

Haha i think we share a common interest of having our bedroom neat and clean.. Well even I'm one of those who constantly checks their room if everything is in proper place or ot.. bed nicely made or not..no crap on the floor..Even i don't know since when I have developed this habit. but i enjoy it anyways..I put up gifts from friends in the showcase and on the table so that I feel attached to them..I have a lots of posters in my bedroom that have love pics and quotes on them...:)

yes, for me im a perfectionist, so everything i see has to be all arrenged in a neat oreder, and everything has to be.. well perfect, so my bedroom is always clean, unless im drunk and there is something on the floor then i wont bother with it because well im drunk and i dont care really, but the majority of the time yes my room is clean, when i was a kid my parents always made sure my room was clean and spotless and i just picked up that habit and now im glad i did because its a healthy habit to be clean, in school my binder was always organized to a tea, so not only is my room clean but every aspect of my life i try and keep it clean, for example i clean my car every month, yes it is a pain in the butt, but its worth it to have a clean car. most people dont worry about cleaning their cars because they dont think it matters, and for me personally when something is messy it bothers me like very much so, so my instinct is to clean it before it bothers me anymore, which is what i always do, my room i clean everyday, and when i vacum and stuff i always move everything and vacum under neath everything, most people dont do that either, which they should because theres dust and mold that lives in dirt and its not a good thing because you can get very sick

Just like you, i have that habit. I want our bedroom so clean always. Even, if i am tired from work, if i entered our bedroom smelling not good, i will really get a clean rag with a fabric softener and wipe the floor. I will fix my husband's beddings again ( i go to work ahead of him, coz' he has a later schedule in their work), because he fixes them just so-so. Only, when the room is clean and feeling fragrant, would i sit in the couch and watch TV and wait for husband to come home. I think, the term for our being such is OC? Obsessive - compulsive?

My bedroom could be cleaner and i would like it to be because i think clearing some of the mess out will help me sleep better. i just rather clean up a little at a time though. i definitely make sure not to eat in my room. i don't like the idea of food or even crumbs being in my room or especially on my bed.

My bedroom is very neat and tidy. Adrian and I are the very same way. We both like clean homes to live in. Now my daughter is a different story. she could sleep with a pile of junk on her floor.

I keep i clean most often but it would be always clean if I'm at home. When I go out to school I can't help rushing and leaving things out of order but I clean it soon as I get home. I won't sleep if my bed is not made too.

I am similar but with my kids. I always make sure there beds are made before i even get to the kitchen to make breakfast. And then towards the end of the morning i come back and do my bed. There is something though about having my kids rooms clean and neat. I try to get them to do it but its so frustrating and time consuming that sometimes it just needs to be done. hopefully all this hard work will pay off on them!

I try to keep my bedroom clean most of the time. However, that is not always the case. For some reason unknown to me, I tend to just throw my clothes on the floor rather than in the laundry basket. Maybe it's laziness after working, since I usually work more than one job in a day. Who knows? But other than the clothes on the floor, my room is pretty clean. I only have my bed and one nightstand in my room, and a huge walk-in closet that holds a dresser along with my clothes, bed sheets, purses, etc. I can sleep if my room is a little messy, but I sleep even better if my bed has been made.

Well needless to say I do make the attempt. However, this is one of those things that are slightly more tricky than we might think. There are times where despite the fact that many of us live in it a good portion of the day, the bedroom tends to fly under the radar. Actually that's really not really true a lot of the time. Parts of it is clean but other parts tend to get overlooked. I do try and make a light sweep of the room to the point where unless you are really nitpicking it, you wouldn't know that it was really dirty a lot of the time. Then I do a more deep and heavy cleaning, pretty much ripping everything apart every month or so. And I do mean deep, to the point where I have to clear the entire morning to do so and have nothing else to do. That was today actually. I am going to enjoy the two days that it remains clean as well.

I do usually keep my bedroom clean, however I have a problem at the moment because I am in between properties so am back with my parents for a couple of months, and there is not enough room in my bedroom for everything that I have brought back from my other house. However, I do normally like to keep my room clean as I feel that I can sleep a lot better in there if I do this. I don't know why, I think that if you are in a clean environment, it helps for your mind to remain clean at the same time. I may actually clean my room a little this afternoon, as I could do with getting rid of some things that I don't really need in my new house.

Well, I started out like you, I am the messiest person alive. And, also, my parents keep on yelling at me to make my bed. I used to be lazy to do that. But recently, I started to tidy my own bedroom. But I don't turn out to be a neat freak like you. It's amazing how your parents turn you into a better person.

Not really. To be more honest my bed will be clean but the other bed in the same room will be messed up with all my clothes scattered allover. There are those sudden times when somethin out of no where happens and you decide to clean the room and when my mom comes in she is suprised and wonders if I actually got up from the right side of the bed that morning. Sonuds crazy but its just that crazy thing that can kick into you. From now on will make a conscious effort to keep my room clean and tidy. Will remove that 10 minutes that it takes and do teh good things. Thanks again...
