Organize a Master Bedroom
No room in a home should be more important to a couple than their bedroom. Disarray in the master bedroom has more impact on family life, on love and respect, and on a relationship than it does in any other room. Your bedroom should be a space that reflects your relationship and fosters calm, warmth and love.

Quick Tips:
Make it a room for grown-ups. Remember, it's your space. Get rid of the kids' toys and clothing. They have the rest of the house, the master bedroom should be yours alone.

Bring back the romance. Increase those aspects of the master bedroom that add to the romance and get rid of anything that doesn't enhance the idea of an adult retreat and haven. For example, this may mean making the room less of a media center and more of a relaxation zone. Set the tone for your romantic getaway from the cares and hassles of daily life!

Make the bed. The bed is a zone in and of itself—the sleeping zone. A well-made bed encourages order and inspires calm.

Beware of what's under the bed. Don't let the dust mites fester. Drag everything under the bed into the middle of the room. If you need anything to stay there, place them in clear containers with lockable lids. Revisit six months later. If you haven't needed what's under there, get rid of it.

Clean the closet. We wear 20 percent of our clothes 80 percent of the time. To weed out the ones you don't wear, turn all of the hangers in your closet one way. After you wear an item, turn the hanger to face the other way. Get rid of the clothes on the hangers that haven't been turned in the last year. Find out the best times of year to purge your closets and start spring cleaning.
