7 Easy Nightstand Organization Ideas
Sort by Category
Start by taking everything off of the top of your nightstand and putting it on your bed. Sort items by category, such as electronics, books, and beauty products. This will make it easier to see what you have and avoid duplicates. (This is one of the steps in the night stand decluttering video I shared at the start of this post).
Create a "To Be Donated" Pile
Be honest with yourself about what you actually use and need. Create a "to be donated" pile for items that you haven't used in a while or no longer serve a purpose. This will make space for the items you actually use and care about.
Use Drawer Dividers
Drawer dividers are a great way to keep items organized and easy to find. They also prevent items from shifting around and becoming disorganized over time. Use them to separate items like charging cables, jewelry, and reading glasses. If you watch the video, you'll see that I like to use old cell phone boxes as dividers. I also like to use inexpensive plastic or acrylic dividers that can be found at dollar stores.
Opt for Space-Saving Solutions
If your nightstand is short on space, consider using vertical storage solutions like wall-mounted shelves or baskets. These can hold items like books and journals, freeing up valuable surface space on your nightstand.
Keep Cleaning Supplies Handy
Keeping cleaning supplies like microfiber cloths within reach can encourage you to clean your nightstand more frequently. A clean nightstand will help you feel more relaxed and at ease in your bedroom. This is also great if you have any allergies or sensitivities to dust!
Incorporate Minimalist Décor
When it comes to decorating your nightstand, less is more. Incorporate minimalist décor like a small vase with fresh flowers or a scented candle to create a peaceful and calming atmosphere in your bedroom. I always have a lamp, a tissue box, and a coaster for my water bottle on my nightstand.
Make it a Habit
Finally, make organizing your nightstand a habit. You can spend a few minutes every night tidying up and putting things back in their designated spot. This will prevent clutter from accumulating over time and make it easier to maintain a clean and organized bedroom.
By incorporating these easy nightstand organization ideas, you'll be on your way to a clutter-free and peaceful bedroom in no time. Don't let the thought of organizing overwhelm you anymore. With a little motivation and these sorting tips, home organization can be a breeze!
