Today I came home to find out that my mother had cleaned my room. Like spotless. Nothing really there. All of my art supplies were gone from their usual places and none of my books were in short reach of my bed.

When I asked my mother about my art supplies, she said that she thought they were just old pencils and pens that I didn't need anymore. Most of them were newish and hadn't been used that much. :\

How do/did you guys deal with your parents getting all over you about cleaning your room?

I mean c'mon. It's not like they live in there.

Just wait til you get your own place, and your mum visits for a weekend. As soon as you leave her unattended she'll start "organizing" stuff and you're lucky if you ever find anything again. But it really sucks that she threw out some off your things, I feel for you

Haha, this happened to my brother last week, he got so pissed. It's never happened to me though, and won't ever happen, since I'm like 21 now. But apparently it sucks hard. I wouldn't want any of my stuff displaced/thrown away, hell.

Another reason I'm proud of my "Elder Status" I'm so grown that nobody youths my ish! Hell, my roommate waited till I came home last Thursday at like 1am to ask me what was wrong w/ the wi fi connection. Alls he had to do was reset the darn Linksys... was afraid to step into my room.

Why? Because it's like a pocket dimension in there...stuff's all over the place & only I know what's what. And that's the way I wanna keep it.

When I was a kid this happened to me all the time. Never really had anything I wanted to hold onto thrown away tho.

But when I was a teen and even now I have/have had my room broken into by my family all the time. Apperently my stuff is super cool and exciting, or they are all birds attracted to shiny objects, and they just had to have it.
My dad snoops through my room like I'm doing drugs or something.
My mom steals my change, my fan, and books from me.
My sisters are cleptos I swear so a short list is: Fabric, Xbox, ps2, nail clippers off my key chain, money, books, drawings, hats I've made, lottory tickets, chargers, iPod, iPhone, old cellphones, wire, beads, yarn, paper, pillows, DVDs, tape, gum, candy, and my dsi has been missing for over 8 months now when I had it put away way the fuck up in my closet.

My room, as a kid, was always such a mess, I always had a lot of clothes books and toys just lying around. You see, I wasn't very aware of my surroundings, and I was rather dismissive when my parents told me my room was a mess, and that I needed to clean it, even if I noticed it was a little messy. Of course, like every kid, when I walked into my room one day and found it cleaned spotless, I was rather upset, because as a kid the world is pretty much out of your control, and your room was basically the one thing you could control, which is what I thought at the time. I mean, it was cool, I didn't have to do the work, and I had more space, but like Sylux said, things were in the wrong spot, some were missing ,and it felt wrong.

Yeah, I hate clutter, so I put everything in a place. If it doesn't have a place and is useless to me, I throw it away. People have always complained to me that my room is too "impersonal," but I don't like living in too "personal" places; it's weird for my (extremely utilitarian) tastes.

The best tidy-room tip I can give is to just clean as you go. Whenever you take something out, put it back before you do something else. Having drawers and storage bins help, too. In the room I'm in now (not pictured) I have two dressers: one for clothes, and one for art stuff. Make sure you make a habit of staying on top of stuff, and it'll always stay clean!

For example: Cleaning off one dish right after you finish eating (when the food is still soft and not-crusty) is easier than washing a mountain of the past week's dishes with hard to scrape gunk on it. Your room is the same way. If you clean stuff as you go along, it's not a daunting job. (: It's the buildup that becomes terrifying. XD

I’m the same way, some people don't understand an organized mess. My mom is a clean freak so generally I kept things organized at home but sometimes I’d have papers all over my desk and my mom assumed my room was dirty. Firstly it was only the desk that was cluttered, and secondly it wasn’t dirty I wipe under the papers and put them back how they originally were because it’s easier that way. Lol I remember my backpack in high school, I was notorious for it, people thought it was pretty funny that I would take like 2 seconds pulling out an assignment from my bag that looked like a pig-sty...I suppose it looked like a magician pulling a rabbit from a hat.

My room is crafted in a way so that I have everything in one main hub. As you can see, from the pictures. I have my Xbox, PSP, and physical PC games on a small shelf to my left, along with writing utensils.

On the right side of my desk, I have my Xbox, which is conveniently hooked up to my second monitor, so that all I have to do is turn it on, and switch input. A small speaker set is hooked up behind my laptop and monitor, so that I can hear sound from it.

I have my tablet on my desk, along with a USB hub for all my extra inputs. My iPod. And my two Xbox controllers, one for my laptop, and one for my 360. I have my second monitor hooked up to my laptop, working in extension mode. And a wireless keyboard and mouse underneath the desk on a sliding part.

Sunnuvabitch, I wish I had a bigger room for all this shit, really. I got about 15 broken skateboards in a pile on the floor beside me, and about four others propped up on a wall... I skate when I'm not playing games, drawing, internetting, or anything else.

When I was very young I had my room really messy and refused to clean it up. My mum literally came in with a garbages bag and put all my toys in it with the intention of throwing them all away as punishment, only my sister begging her not to saved those toys. Ever since I kept my room reasonably clean so she never had reason to go and clean it. When ever she did she apparently got freaked out because I would be things away but in random combinations that didn't make sense.

My mom rocked up to the place where I live now with my sister, as a 'surprise' she cleaned the kitchen and did the dishes. After she was really condesending being all like, OH it must be much cleaner now than you are used to! The only reason it was a mess is because it was my sisters turn to clean it -_-

I keep them because... I don't know, they hold memories to me. I still have my first board, when I started doing my first tricks. Most of them aren't broken, just really beat up, but I keep the broken ones too. I've only given away/traded about two or three out of them all.
But that's off topic.

For some reason, my room just never stays clean. Like, I'll clean it the best I can one day, and it'll be back to crap in no time. I'm just such a cluttered person. Even my computer's desktop is all over the place.

My mom does that to her 30-something-year-old sister, which is way uncool. But she doesn't really bother with me, because I do what I'm supposed to and get the heck out of her way. I only live with her for three months out of the year, anyway.

I hate my bed. I have a queen sized bed and it takes up like half of my floor space maybe a little less. I don't even have the frame for the bed because it used to be my parents bed before they got a new one and the frame bent because it was old and janky. I want a futon or something but I'm broke allways and I would be spilling off of it more than likely, I'm just under 6' and sleep stretched out arms under my head.
I vary from sleeping flat on my side to sleeping sitting up off and on back and forth through out the night so a futon seems ideal to me.

Man, reading some of you guys' posts...makes me glad for my mom. Grandma used to snoop through her room and throw her cigarettes away (and try to find her pot, which she hid inside a Buddha statue she had.) So...my mom never looked through my stuff. We always had to pick up after ourselves...it was just part of our routine. We weren't like spotless, but we had to pick up and keep things neat. When I was a teen, and I finally got my own room, she made me clean it a few times...but my room usually looked like a bomb went off. Until I got sick of the mess (well, except when I got my own little dogs that stayed in my room when the big dogs were inside, I just kept it clean on my own so they wouldn't sleep on/chew/mess up my stuff.)

My dad wasn't home often, and when he was, he steered clear his teen-aged girls' rooms. I'm pretty sure he was scared of getting lost in female...stuff. He let mom take care of most of the child raising (thankfully.)

I feel like Outcast just has all this pent up rage and then just released it into the wall. He's gonna be the first hulk

This is mostly accurate. I didn't really hit all that hard though...

Oh yeah there's this little spot where the wood is broken what would I do to fix that?

AFAIK, duct tape is your friend in DIY situations. ;p

I broke my share of windows, with rocks of course, wasn't pissed, the cool kids were doing it.

Who said I was proud? Was pretty upset that I had lost my temper like that. I really don't like being so angry, can be a bit scary, you know?

I lol'd to hide my disappointment in my actions.

I wish I was mentally stronger as a kid, if I was... well, I wouldn't have made so many stupid mistakes.

someday, i really want to punch through a wall or a window just to see if i can. same thoughts about hitting a person to see their reaction. i'd only hit a person in my sparring classes or if i had explicit permission from them, though.

i live in a lockwood, so punching the wall does absolutley nothing except potentially break ur knuckles.

I HAVE WITH EXPERIENCE WITH THESE THINGS YOU BUY A SPECIAL METALLIC-LOOKING SHEET THAT HAS STICKY STUFF ON THE BOTTOM KIND OF LIKE A STICKER AND YOU PLACE IT OVER THE HOLE, SPREAD SOME DRYWALL COMPOUND ON IT AND LAY IT ON THICK SO YOU CAN'T SEE THE METAL SHEET ANYMORE AND THEN SAND IT DOWN UNTIL IT LOOKS AND FEELS LIKE AN EVEN WALL AND THEN YOU PAINT IT

Sylux, that only works if you break through the plaster and stuff. Not if you actually break the wood. Calm down, please.

If you don't use duct tape, use wood glue. Assuming the wood pieces are still close enough to be glued together anyways. :\

I agree with Rio; wood glue could be a good fix, or at least temporarily. But yeah, I wouldn't put plaster or anything down unless you've done anything about the wood first. (:

So umm the wood piece that broke off is actually connected to the nail and the nail is bent too. Do I just bend it and back and with what, a hammer?

Better off replacing that nail

My mom leaves my room alone for the most part, she usually bothers me and my twin enough to get us to clean it every time it gets real dirty.

Today:

Mom goes into my neat stack of console games in the living room while I'm at work.
Puts them into a bin
Hides them in the shed
"You don't need those."

Um
well
lady
you see
I haven't even finished some of those.

Your mom is so hard to understand.

Same concept, different story: a year or two ago, my mom took all my games rated T or M and hid them in her desk. I found them and talked to her about it, and we came to an understanding.

Regardless, I've gone almost completely digital. I think taking a week to download a game is worth not losing it in the near future.

I have no real actual room until college starts this coming fall. (Having an apartment. <3)

I can't wait to decorate it!

Guize, help me find some pirate themed kitchen stuff because that's my school's mascot.
