Sometimes I think back to my childhood when my mother would come in with a yard stick pulling everything out from under our beds. Believe it or not but I think I always had the most amount of stuff under there. We then had to find a place for everything or else into the garbage it went. Having shared a room with my sister, storage was limited and our small closet barely contained both of our clothes much less extras.
I guess my room is similar now in that the only place to put things is under my bed or on the night stand. Since my younger days, I can happily say I have improved and the following is what I had hidden under there:
- Bin – bedding
- Small bun- childhood blankets and a couple stuffed animals
- Violin, wedding music binder, music stand
- Empty space saver bag (kinda ironic)
I organized my sheets and pillow cases and took everything else (into my closet, to deal with at a later date)
Feng shui believes in order to allow free energy movement, under the bed must be kept clear. More important for me than energy flow, is to not allow dust to collect. I now have free range with my vacuum to get under there every week.
