She admitted the door on her and her husband’s bedroom is ‘child-locked’ and had become a ad hoc storage facility for anything they wanted to keep from their two and four-year-old kids’ reach.

‘I literally gutted the room of everything except for furniture and piled it throughout the rest of my home,’ she said.

She said it is the first time she has been so ruthless, but it was ‘totally worth it’.

‘I removed 1/4 of a garbage bin full of rubbish and packaging and filled my boot with op shop donations,’ she boasted.

Because everything had been taken from the room she took the opportunity to move the furniture to ‘better spots’.

‘I love this room now, it is such a relaxing space,’ she wrote in a blog post detailing the huge job.

‘Looks great, I bet you feel better,’ added another.

Others warned her being organised ‘becomes addictive’.

‘The real challenge will be keeping it this way and not letting clutter edge its way back in,’ she wrote.
