This cupboard is an old school stationary cupboard we bought years ago. It is groaning with stuff and more stuffity stuff. Whenever I put anything in there, I kind of just open the door and wedge the item in wherever it will fit.
Then there is this cupboard on the other side of the room. It is actually one section of his built in wardrobe. Things keep falling out of it onto the floor. It scares me.
Every now and then I do a big clean of his room.
I used to get anxious about how dusty it got and how messy it was. Then I figured that it is his space, not mine and I just change the sheets on the bed, pick up washing, vacuum the floor that I can see and dust the window sill.
I have more interesting things to do than make my son clean his room. Besides, he won't let me throw anything out and I respect his wishes. My husband would trash the lot but I say that is not ours to trash. It belongs to my son and he needs to make the decision. Who are we to tell him what to keep and what not to keep? I can pack things in boxes and store them when he is ready to do so.
Goodness knows I had to do my room as a child or my father would give me a hiding to remember (which I do thanks). Didn't make me a tidy and clean person. In fact, it made me resent any housework at all.
Having said that, I think I might clean my own bedroom.
After all what are Saturdays for?
