A Guide to Organizing your Work-at-Home Flow

Since so many of us have been working from home for a few months now, the novelty of it all is starting to wear off. Maybe you have started noticing that you aren’t as productive as you’d like to be or you can’t quite figure out how to emulate that conducive work environment. Below you…

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…

Purging Outdated Technology in a Home Office Closet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. The closet was full of outdated computer wires, cds, hard disks, and computer parts. 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…

Dusting Off: The Home Office

So many of us have those spaces in our home that we intend to use for one purpose but, after time, end up being used for something else. Many times it’s short term storage, which after a while, has a tendency to nudge you down that slippery slope into catch-all storage. This homeowner’s front home office was due for a little dusting off and an organizational update. She had designed a beautiful, functional home office and after becoming a temporary (see: always longer than you’d like) storage area, it was time for a reset. In the entry way were two beautiful french doors. We…

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…

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…

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…
