Imagine that after decluttering, cleaning, and organizing your child’s room that it stayed that way.
Imagine your child or children playing nicely and not getting bored easily.
Imagine your child cleaning their room every day in just a few minutes, without putting up a fight about it.
Does that sound like a dream?
In just four weeks, this can be your reality.
Here is the overview and what you can expect from each week.

In the posts listed below I’ve included descriptions and pictures of my personal journey using A Clean Room is a Fun Room so you can see the printables being used in my home as an example.
Your Transformation Goal
In the next 4 weeks you will transform your home.
The children’s toys, books, and clothes that are scattered on the floors and bulging out of closets now will soon be decluttered, organized, and labeled.
Then you can begin to train your child so they can care for their own things and keep their room tidy- without putting up a fight.
And best of all, your child will have a fun and clear space to play in and enjoy!

Week 3: Training
You have finished all the preparatory work now. Your child’s toys are tidy and ready to rotate, their books have been pruned back, and their closets have been made ultra-functional. You want to be able to keep it that way and for your child to be able to maintain it on their own.
This week is all about teaching them how to care for their things by first modeling and then letting them take charge.
Week 4: Daily Upkeep
This is the week that you have been working for. You have cleaned. You have decluttered. You have labeled. You have trained. Now it is time to pass the torch to your child so that they can carry on with the daily cleaning on their own.
Your only job this week is to continue to remind them of their task and deal out a reward or consequence depending on if they completed their clean room checklist or not.
