I'm not a very organized person. How do I keep my room clean?

I'm trying to keep my room clean but when I finally clean it, it goes back into a mess!

In the morning clean and do this every day. Just tidy up and put things away. If in the middle of the day or in the evening it's a mess again, clean it again. (If you don't like cleaning and get tired of it and don't want to do it everyday I use a strategy to help me. I take everything that's out of place in my room and put it on my bed. Then, what's on my bed I put back into place knowing I can't sleep or lay down until its done) also, after you use something, put it back AS SOON AS YOU'RE DONE WITH IT. Not "I'll do it later" or "in a second" do it right away. These steps worked for me and now they're a habit for me that I will be carrying with me forever. My room is constantly spotless :)

You might need to get rid of some stuff or every morning and every night clean your room.

Everytime you move stuff around to find something, make sure you put everything back!! Keep clothes in hampers, make your bed every morning, dust and vacuum as needed, have a trash can in your room, keep books and papers on shelves or a desk or whatever you have, get rid of stuff you don't need...I used to have the same problem keeping my room clean!! :)

If you take something out put it away when you're done. If u throw something on the floor,pick it up when u get up or next time you see it. Just keep telling yourself,The cleaner you keep it the less you have to clean. If you put your shirt in the hamper when u take it off, you won't have to pick it up later.

Set yourself mini-goals,like,i won't go online till I've tidied this or that up or,I won't go out till I've cleaned this & that.. That's how I get most of my housework done,it could work for you.

Keep as less things in your room as possible. Less things are easier to handle, managing Vatican City is easier then managing US.

Depending on you your habits your personality your schedule etc.
Do you have more energy in the a.m. Or in the p.m.? Are you always in a rush? Are you lazy&undisciplined?
Try scheduling a specific day&time each week(maybe every Wednesday afternoon clean up for 1hour) and/or every Saturday am. Also crank up the radio to help you get motivated.
