Yes it would drive me crazy if my bedroom was a mess.
My bed has to be made everyday. No clothes laying around they have to be hung up or put away.
My sheets have to be washed once a week, dusted and vacumned in there at least twice a week.
I cant help it.

Yes it would drive me crazy to have a messy bedroom,or any other part of the house.Hubby has no problem just dropping whatever where ever,ahhh I have to pick up after him,I thought I was done that when my kids grew up and moved out.
My grandmother used to say "A place for everything and everything in its place".

My bedroom is the ongoing project. Making the bed is the first step to getting it clean because then I can use the bed to pile and sort.

We have 4 laundry baskets under the window. Since the pup seems to like to chew out the underwear and put holes in the socks, we now have tall wicker hampers there. I made 3 little plaques for them so now the family can sort their own clothes (jeans, towels, lights, darks). The towels are just piled in front of my closet.

By the bedroom door are two boxes of stuff off dh's dresser and under the bed two years ago running now. And it is time to do this again as the top of his dresser is piled high. The first thing you see too from the hallway.

On top of the boxes are 8 blankets that because the linen closet downstairs has shelves that keep falling, we don't even bother anymore. I guess that repair could be made!

My dresser is a junk area and even though everything else is on there, no hairbrushes are ever there, the dds always take them! I need to find 6 pants hangers like the ones we already have, but wal mart doesn't carry them anymore and I don't want to buy all new ones for dh's slacks! So that is an ongoing project.

It is the only room in our house never painted and we have been here 18 years. Gotten close two times but no go yet. Can't agree on a color, even with myself!

The bed posts usually have shirts draped on them...

And we need two more lamps because there is no overhead lighting. DH doesn't have a reading lamp. And the closet lights are burnt out yet again. Those lousy in the ceiling things get too hot.

So, yes it is messy and no it doesn't bother me enough to do something more about it!

Under the bed is cleaned out finally though and we keep 3 storage boxes there (Christmas wrap, tissue and gift bags, and wrapping paper and ribbons).

I repainted all the bedrooms, we have 4, ours was the last, it is simple with nice clean lines, I am lucky as I have a U shaped walk in robe and an ensuite. We did come from a much smaller 3 bedroom house so I know how it's important to have a place for everything and everything in it's place. But if in a hurry to tidy I throw everything in the robe, so it does have a downside being large, it fits lots of stuff LOL. I suppose I could get rid of some shoes ..... nah !!
If you have kids you expect clutter, you can't help it.
The easiest way to attempt to keep a room tidy is to attempt to put things away as you've used them, I can try.

I too hate an untidy bedroom but I only work 2 days a week and leave b 4 my dh gets up thus he "makes?" the bed and it drives me nuts he never takes the wrinkles out and the comforter is never straight and the top sheet is hanging out past the comforter and even at the foot of the bed, you can see where he hasn't pulled the comforter down far enough to hide the blanket and the sheet!!! Grrrrrrr and he gets mad when I redo (try to do this w/o him knowing-yea right) and his comment is "who's gonna see it?" I reply- "ME!" but he still does it the same those 2 days!

No, it really doesn't bother me that much. We don't spend much time in our bedroom other than sleeping (heehee) with my husband working 3rd shirft. We sleep at different times so the room is used for a closet and a bed. Right now we have a big bed, a dresser and a nightstand in there, along with baskets of clothes and a big bookshelf. The clothes never quite make it in the drawers.
