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!

Organizing Paperwork in a Home Office

One of the toughest areas to keep organized is: PAPERWORK. There is constantly a steady stream of incoming mail, bills, business cards, greeting cards, flyers and who knows what else types of paper seeping in to our lives on a daily basis. If we don’t dedicate time to opening it, sorting it, and putting it away, it can build up FAST. This home office was over run with paperwork, mail, and magazines. This couple had a great system of incoming bills and a calendar of when each bill was due, knowing to pay it by that date. The problem they…

Organizing an Austin Kitchen

Every space, after a while, get’s unorganized due to misc. items placed in random spots. This kitchen is one of those examples. Busy families seldom get the time to take a 4 hour break to re-organize their kitchen. Enter: professional organizers. This client had a pretty good idea where she wanted her kitchen items. She stuck sticky notes on the outside of the cabinets so that we could stick closely to their current main areas for things. The non-kitchen stuff was moved to the pantry and to dining room storage, while the remainder was straightened up, and re-homed. The pantry,…

Catch-All Office Organize

This office organize started out just clearing space and shuffling some furniture around.   My client was extremely busy and had experienced many recent life changes, saying that this room had become a catch-all for a lot of different things!  After we moved a book case, I was able to put a box of books onto the shelves that eliminated one box. Empty drawers by the desk provided me with the opportunity to take a tub of office supplies and make them readily available for use. The closets in the office were storing extra clothing that did not fit in the…

Austin Laundry Room Storage Makeover

Even in the most organized homes, laundry rooms, mud rooms, there is usually that chaotic catch-all room where clothes, your kid’s crap, overflow kitchen pantry items, and just lots of random “do it later” kind of stuff gets dumped. Laundry and mud rooms, entry ways, kitchen counters, etc. are all kiiiind of like temporary holding tanks. They get full o’ stuff  fast if you don’t make the time to deal with ’em. Putting a weekly “house review/reset” alarm scheduled in your smart phone (about 30 mins or so until you’re in the habit) is a good way to remember. I…

Kid's Room Organization

It’s inevitable: where there are kids, there are toys (and a MESS!). My four-year-old loves to play, but never seems to enjoy picking it up. Making a mess is so much more fun! After looking at the overflowing bins of stuffed animals and books scattered across my daughter’s bedroom floor, I knew I had to find a solution to this mess. Rule #1: It needed to be cute. Rule #2: It needed to be fun! My solution? Closetmaid Cubeicals – $64 at Target Closetmaid Cubeicals Fabric Drawers, around $6 each I let my daughter pick out the fabric drawers. After…
