Bachelor Pad Clutter

I don’t recommend trying to get organized all in one shot. It’s overwhelming. Instead, start with one or two important areas, and work your way down. We began by organizing the all important desktop/bookshelf that was in need of some attention. By removing everything and sorting through each piece of paper and the office supplies we were able to get rid of the unnecessary items. Clean as you go. This will save you time rather than letting things pile up and having to do a big cleaning session later. A great way to keep loose papers organized is by picking up file storage trays and…

Organizing to sell your home!

This is a great time of year to sell your home. Your open house is right around the corner and you’re tempted to toss all of your belongings into moving boxes. Pretty simple right? Organizing to sell your home is an opportunity to create a new chapter in your life and moving is the perfect time to de-clutter! If you haven’t used or worn an item of clothing in 6 months, donate it. Take the time to go through your old books, papers, clothing, child’s toys and get rid of them. A good place to start is with your bedroom and bathroom. We…

Organizing a Decor Closet

Our client has a guest room walk-in closet that she likes to use for storing linens, clothing, gift wrap, artificial flowers, candles, and other decor items. Many of the items were in different sizes of cardboard boxes, so they didn’t stack very well, and she couldn’t see what was inside.  It was pretty hard to locate the stuff that she wanted! The linens really took up a lot of space, and didn’t really fit in with the theme of the closet, so we removed them and put them in another closet that already had linens in it.  By storing “like…

Organizing and Containing Bathroom Items

We all have those few bottles of bathroom products that we used until they were almost empty, and instead of either finishing them up or throwing them away, we stuck them somewhere… Well, this client had a couple of those mingled with items from both of her parent’s houses that they gave to her after she moved into her own home. So, those few bottles… times three. First, pulled everything out of the closet. We then went through each container and bin item by item and put all of the similar items in piles together, organizing them by type. We had skin…

From Closet Chaos to Closet Tidy!

Whether you have lived in your home for a month or years you can always find things that you can PURGE! The best way to tackle an overflowing closet is just to start pulling things out, any and everything that is just thrown in there. When doing this start making piles that you will be able to tackle easily. Perhaps start with a pile for all of your shoes that you will be able to later match up and see which are out of style or you no longer wear. Make separate piles for bags/purses and even clothes that are not hung-up. Once you have everything sorted into….yes,…

Stuffed Linen Closets

We’ve all been there in terms of linen closets: Quick… open the door just enough to shove the sheet set in there. Quick… close the door just in time to prevent a massive linen avalanche! Step One: Pull EVERYTHING out of the closet. Yes, everything. And then give those shelves a good wipe down with your favorite smelly good cleaner (check out our surface sprays made with aromatic essentials oils!). Step Two: Sort the linens by size and type. Piles on the floor work great, no need to get fancy with it. Step Three: Donate, throw away, or re-purpose whatever…

Closet Spring Cleaning

Oh, closets!   Ya gotta love ’em! I walked into this organize with the intent to help a client switch out her winter clothes for summer.  It ended up being so much more productive in two hours than she expected and I love leaving on such a high note! I started by getting all the folded winter clothes out and into their off-season closet space. There were two hanging cloth shelves that just needed a little going through to ensure that no summer items were mixed in before we moved one out. This opened up more space on her side of…

Making the Off Season Clothing Swap and Pairing Down

Everyone has those clothes hanging in your closet that you have good intentions for, but you never aaaactually wear. I’m hanging on to some jeans that don’t quite fit anymore, but I keep swearing to myself that I’ll be able to squeeze back into them… soon? Today’s client was doing an off season clothing swap and needed to pair down some of her clothes that she had good intentions for, but didn’t really ever wear. A great way to manage those off season clothing items is to store them separately from your in-play items. Whether in another closet, in bins…
