Purging Outdated Technology in a Home Office Closet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 The closet was full of outdated computer wires, cds, hard disks, and computer parts.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

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…

A Craft Room Rediscovered Part 3

Session 3 in a busy little craft room.   Today I had another surface that needed clearing. Okay, not JUST a surface but it was the major priority!  Can you see it?  Let’s do this thing!  There was lots of sorting that went on and a LOT of items that just went straight into the trash!  Along with that area, I also worked on the under the table space of a previous session.  I just plain ran out of time and so when I returned I knew that this would be valuable space asset if used properly.With this small space, various…

A Craft Room Rediscovered – Part 2

I had been to this craft room before!  And I was ready for another phase of getting it back to functioning for a busy mama! The last session we worked on clearing floor space and getting a lot of items out of the room.  Today it was time to clear a sewing area! Today was the day! This time there was room in the craft room to do the sorting.  My first priority was to get the counters cleared off enough to see what was inside those cabinets.  The set of cabinets on the left were full of fabrics that…

Straightening Up Office Storage

Like most closets, after a while, without fail… things get shoved in last minute just to be out of the way, and items have a tendency to get jumbled up. This office storage closet was no exception. It started off organized in containers and most like-items were with their counter parts but after a while, those containers were out of place from being taken out and put back on the shelf. Things got shoved in where they didn’t necessarily belong. We removed everything from the shelves and wiped them down. Then to put it all back… All the similar paper…

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,…

Organizing a Storage Closet

This busy family of 6 needed a better system for their storage. Namely, all those cute keepsakes and kids’ artwork that they’d need to occasionally get to for school projects and ‘show and teach.’ This mom wanted a system that was easily accessible for her kids to put away their own artwork and get it out when they needed to. First we took everything out of the closet. The bedroom floor got a liiiittle crazy for a while while everything was strung all over the floor. We moved the larger boxes and items up to higher shelves for less frequent…
