Declutter & Organise Your Bedside Table

Declutter your bedside table so your bedroom is a relaxing and restful space. Bedside tables can easily become a dumping ground for clutter at the end of the day. My tips to declutter it and keep it organised.

A clutter free environment is crucial for when I want to have a clutter free mind. This is why I like to set the right tone from the moment I open my eyes. My bedside table is the first thing I see when I wake up (or if I’m lying the other way it’s my hubby’s), so I like to keep it tidy. If I see clutter first thing in the morning I start the day grumpy (similar to how I feel when I see a messy kitchen) – and that’s no fun for anyone.

Whilst I don’t keep much on my bedside table, what I do keep has a purpose and a place.

I don’t keep very much on my bedside table – my lamp, diffuser (which has been very helpful during winter to ease a cough I have niggling), flowers and a clock. I removed my illuminating alarm clock a few years ago as I was going through a period where I couldn’t sleep. I would lie there at night watching the time pass and I got so frustrated. I typically wake before everyone else so don’t need an alarm each morning, but on the days I do I set my iPad or phone.


  • Look at your bedside table, as well as inside the drawers. See what storage solutions aren’t working.
  • Remove everything from the bedside table and drawers, grouping like items together.
  • Determine what items you haven’t used in over 12 months and consider purging them.
  • Clean your bedside table removing any built-up dust.
  • Add any new and/or your current storage products in your drawers to help you keep it organised.
  • Place items back in a tidy and organised manner.

I also keep inside my bedside table drawers really minimal. I’ve used our clear crystal micro trays, they come in a range of different sizes so I can make them fit perfectly into my drawer. I keep things that I usually use every night and a few items that are really sentimental to me.
