Getting started

If when you walk into the room it looks like a bomb skidded then chances are you going to look at it and think that 15 minutes just isn’t going to cut it. This couldn’t be further from the truth, spend just 15 minutes (if you need to set a timer) and in that time just do your best to remove the majority of clutter and mess from just one area. Within about a week you will be amazed at the amount of progress that you have made and you should be ready to move on to a regular maintenance schedule.

The regular maintenance schedule

The best way to do it

Ideally, your child should do all of these tasks (depending on their age) so that they can learn how good it is to have a clean room and so that they can build healthy habits for the rest of their life. It only takes 15 minutes to keep the room need to tidy and looking great.
