Psst…Let’s go into the bedroom and Create a Clutter Free Zone.

Create a Clutter Free Zone of Electronics in the Bedroom

While I know there are people who feel there should not be TV in bed and then there are the others who feel that having a TV in the bedroom is better than falling asleep on the couch.   We enjoy watching TV, but we don’t bring our tablets or laptops into the bedroom. For us this is our time to unplug and settle down. Plus our fur babies insist on going to bed at 9:30 or 10 at the latest.

If you are like us we have LOTS of electronic devices all of which need to be charged.

Fitness monitors, golf watch, I-pod and cell phones. We no longer have a landline so I want my cell phone by my bed. Night is the perfect time to charge it but I don’t want cords all over my bedside table.

What to do with the Chargers?

We have created the perfect solution for us.   I purchased a decorative box for all the chargers. Then we placed a power strip inside of the box. I leave all the chargers plugged in and just flip the power strip off when not in use.

This might work for you if you have a drawer. Put the power strip in the drawer.

You can also use dividers for your drawers. Make a place for your remote, Chap Stick, glasses, notepad, pen and whatnot.

If you don’t have a nightstand you can DIY a floating one easily by taking a magazine file holder by mounting it sideways on the wall. Bonus it floats and takes up no floor space and most of them already have a hole for wires.

If you or your significant other has a CPAP machine you can now find a nightstand built and designed to hold this specific machine.

Create A Clutter Free Zone.

Keep your nightstand or bedside table free of clutter. Leave room for a lamp, a good book and your clock. Which in my case is my phone but my phone is set on silent and has a scheduled do not disturb.do not distrub sign-1185059_640

Of all the places in your home that needs to be a sanctuary it needs to be your bedroom. Don’t bring you work papers into the bedroom. You need to relax and you can’t do that if you are working in bed.bed photo-1450776598040-e0dbb5665213.jpg

So TV or No TV in the bedroom?

Sweet Dreams Ya’ll.

  1. Thank you for this inspiration to be decluttered, and keep the bed room a calm zone. I have almost achieved – I sit on the dinning room table writing this comment, otherwise I blog and comment on my bed.

    Great post, loving your blog and all the organizing tips – organizing and decluttter is a passion of mine. Take care and speak soon. Bella
