You will need
- A clock
- A piece of paper and pen
- A duster

Step 1 Identify specific objects Identify specific things to be done or objects to be organized – books, trash, clothing items – and clean by category.
Play music while you clean. It’ll make time pass more quickly.
Step 2 Focus on one area Focus on one area at a time and clean it, before moving to the next one. Start in one corner and move out from there.
Step 3 Set time limits Set time limits and make a game out of it, betting on yourself.
Step 4 Post visual reference Post a to-do list on the door, making a visual reference that targets tasks so you don’t forget anything. This confers a sense of achievement.
Step 5 Make bed Remove your bedding and put on new sheets. Get the dirty dishes, old socks, and any dead things out from underneath.
Step 6 Sort clothes Separate dirty clothes from clean, which should be folded and put away or hung up.
Step 7 Dust and vacuum Dust all surfaces and vacuum the carpet. Spray some air freshener. Done.
