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…

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…

Tidy Up That Garage Space!

Garages!  This client was ready to get hers tidied up!  And she was glad she could call in some help!  She had already started identifying like items and gathering them in totes on the shelves outside her entry door. We clarified what she wanted on each shelf and also took into consideration the priority of the convenient grab!   Other items were moved to locations further from the door.   Onto the other portion of shelving and miscellaneous items that tend to gather in garages! This part just needed a good going through so everything came off the shelves. Recent law school paperwork…

Organizing Garage Storage

Garages are one of those places that ends up storing a little bit of everything for easier access. This specific garage was right off of the kitchen, making it a handy spot for overflow kitchen appliances and different cooking related items. This client also likes to decorate for the holidays, so she has some tote boxes stored here with Christmas decorations in them already.  However, there aren’t enough, so the overflow gets scattered.  She also uses this space for storing cleaning supplies, kitchenware, and small appliances.  She keeps one car in this space, but it is a two car garage.…

Unpacking a Catch-All Garage

When moving, we all have that one last space that often acts as a dumping ground for the stuff we aren’t quite sure what to do with ey. A lot of the times that space ends up being the garage. This newly combined family had just moved and had slowly been unpacking their garage which had become the catch-all from their move. A lot of what was in the garage was garage-related stuff like camping, sports equipment, tools, and boating supplies. Each of those areas were sorted into piles and while going through the contents, we were able to donate…

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…

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…
