Congested Closet Turned Creative Corner

Are you a gift giver?  Do you spend extra money on wrapping paper or gift bags not because you don’t have it but because the thought of finding it is too exhausting to even think about?  I’ve been there, I know.   And I hope I’m not speaking out of turn to say that it’s possible my client may have had some of the same feelings.  She had a closet, a closet that was a tad congested, too congested to allow her to be the gift giver I could tell she was!   She didn’t want it to be that way, but…

Purging Outdated Technology in a Home Office Closet

These clients are a sweet tech-loving couple. Shawna and I helped to organize their home office once before, but this time the home owners wanted to focus on the spacious home office closet . Closets can become a catch-all for all sorts of items, but with a little time and some help, it can be a breeze to fix.

There were a lot of great bins and study boxes already in place, so one we removed the clutter, the storage containers were put to better use. In order…

Solving The Walk-In Pantry Puzzle

I was excited to start my day with a pantry organize!  I knew this walk-in pantry was going to be a big job and my client got a jump on the work of clearing a lot of the pantry before I got there.   So when I arrived I knew we’d better get busy!   My client had admitted to being overwhelmed and we needed to find the perfect equation to not only get everything back into the pantry but also make it WORK!  The items from the pantry were also on the kitchen counter…. And a side table between the kitchen…

Little Boys and Their Toys

Little boys.  It was all about ’em today as we peeked into some brothers’ closets.  The first little guy was a big fan of cars, trucks and tractors!  We started by clearing the stuffed animals out that were not played with anymore.  Having those two shelves open gave us lots of room to play with.  The top one was designated for larger puzzles that he would need to have help getting out, while we made room for the wooden board puzzles on a lower shelf that he could access.   Books were straightened and Christmas books were pulled out and stored…

That Awkward Closet

Are you lost when it comes to that tiny office closet and you just can’t seem to figure out how to organize it?  Look no further! Here are a few ways to get in there and get it organized. My client needed some direction in where to even begin with her small yet long office closet. We started by pulling all items out, sorting through and putting them into categories by grouping like items (i.e. office supplies, paperwork, odds-n-ends), then placing them in boxes that we labeled. Labeling makes it a lot quicker to find a specific item that you are looking for. Now is a…
