The KonMari Method If you are lucky enough to have Netflix then chances are you have already discovered Marie Kondo and her famous videos that cover topics such as folding your clothing so it stands up vertically, this is a great way of maximising space in your drawers and makes it much easier to see what you have. Any unused items can then be donated to a local charity shop or recycled at a nearby facility. Bare Necessities We have all heard it before, a bedroom should be clutter and technology free to help maximise our chance of a peaceful night’s sleep. A great way to do this is to place a basket by your bed with a book, hand cream, reading glasses or those little things that you like to use for a pre-bedtime pamper. Flip That Mattress Most good mattresses will have a lifespan of approximately 8 years depending on how well you look after them. By flipping it every few months, you can even out the pressure that is placed on your bed springs which in turn will lead to a longer lifespan for your mattress and ensure that you get a good night’s sleep.
