But the thing is, us parents get tired of telling you over and over again to clean it. And I know what you’re going to say, “this is how I like my room,” Or perhaps you’ll say, “I know where everything when it’s like this.” You’re not telling me anything new. I once, was a teenage girl myself. And I too had a messy room. But the older I got the more I realized that I couldn’t handle the clutter.

Learn To Developing Motivation

Most, not all, teenagers lack the motivation to do just about anything. This comes from their lack of direction and meaning in life. Take some time to yourself and develop and strengthen these traits. It will benefit you in the long run. When I took the time to step back and evaluate my situation, my life became clearer. And so did my room. It’s not in our nature to be sloppy, there’s usually a reason behind it.

Do this for yourself and I promise you, You’ll have no problem keeping your room and your life clean.

Sell Your Old Clothes For Money

Look around your room. Look at all those clothes on the floor. When’s the last time you wore that dress or those jeans? Teenagers, without knowing it, are often border-line hoarders. Why keep all those old clothes that don’t fit you when you can see them for money? You may or may not have a job yet that’s bringing in a cash flow. But even if you do, everyone can use a little extra money. Take your old items to places like Plato’s Closet. Going this route will give you instant cash. Another route you can take is to sell your clothes to places like Thredup. When you sell your clothes online, it takes a little bit longer to get your money. But sometimes It’s worth it.

Store Things

The phrase ‘store things’ these days usually means storing them in the cloud. Although I’m not talking about the cloud, it’s a very similar concept that I want you to adopt. Just as you would store picture or media in the cloud. Take some time and store things that you aren’t using in a storage bin. Things like closet organizers, shoe racks, and storage totes can do wonders for a messy teenage room. One of the best things about storage products is that they’re so customizable nowadays. You can get almost any color and any pattern that you want. There’s probably a pattern to match your room!
