Organizing BEFORE You Move: Save Time and Your Sanity

So, you’re moving! How exciting and yet, utterly terrifying. Moving doesn’t have to be your worst nightmare, though. It CAN have the potential to be only a mildly scary mini-dream. Below are a few tips to help you tame that moving beast while staying organized and at least partly sane. Visualizing the New Place Firstly,…

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…

Glitzy Christmas Wonderland

Once Thanksgiving day has come and gone  you know Christmas is truly almost here, but time seems to slip away faster as your gift buying, baking & to do list grows longer.  There’s so much more you want to be busy with than pulling everything out to decorate so you can all bask in the glitzy Christmas wonderland.  My client was ecstatic to have her whole family together on her favorite holiday for the first time in over 5 years! So, I quickly channeled my inner Elf and to work I went on creating a cozy space for all of them to…

Making A Workshop Work

Part of a workshop’s job description is to do some pretty heavy work.   It has to house all the things that are needed to do a job.  In my client’s case the construction business is the name of the game and there are so many facets to that.  His workshop was not doing the work it needed to make things easy to find and ready to go!  There were too many things on the floor blocking the shelves….   Or blocking other equipment that needed accessibility.   The solution was to do some sorting and consolidating on the shelves and…

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…

A Craft Room Rediscovered Part 6

Excited to continue working on some tedious sorting, I arrived to find that some unfortunate events had occurred since my last session.  There had been some water leaking in the hallway and so everything from that area had to be moved to the craft room.  Two steps forward, one step back! With organization going into place it made it that much easier to put those things away!  Then it was back to the where I left off last time!  I had some scrapbook and jewelry totes on wheels that needed to be gone through.   What treasures will we find in…

A Craft Room Rediscovered Part 5

The day I’ve been waiting for!   The craft room.  Nitty gritty jewelry sorting! So the jewelry items have been filtered out of the other craft categories and put into a generic jewelry pile!  I have added and added…. and added!   I know it goes to the jewelry category but what exactly is it? Wire?  Beading?  Pendant? Charm? Earring?  Luckily I had a pile of theses amazing craft organizers staring me in the face just waiting to be put to work!  I love theses things!! And boy did I ever have something to fill them with! Beads…Pendants for necklaces….. All…

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…

A Grandchildren's Play Closet

This is our client’s guest bedroom closet, used by her grandchildren. When they come to visit, this walk-in closet functions as a play closet and arts & crafts space.  This clever arrangement works pretty well, except that the toys get all jumbled together when the kids play. She is tired of having to do all of the picking up, so she enlisted our help! This client wanted a simple solution; one that the kids could manage mostly by themselves. First, I removed most of the items from the closet. Yup, there were a lot of scattered parts.  I put the ones that I couldn’t identify aside…
