Spring Cleaning – Closet Purge

Posted on Mar 27, 2014

Spring is here, at least according to the calendar. Eventually we will all need to dig out our Spring and Summer clothes and gladly put our Winter clothes to rest. Unfortunately I do not have a walk-in closet, so I have taken over both closets in the master bedroom and part of the closet in our guest bedroom, where I keep off-season clothing. The first thing I do is swap out my Summer/Winter clothes from one closet to the other. While I’m swapping out my clothes, I’m simultaneously pulling out those clothes I have not worn in over a year. I throw those in a donate pile. If you have a walk-in or large enough closet to hold your entire wardrobe, I would keep your current season accessible and the off-season items toward the back or in an area less accessible. Here are some donation/consignment places for clothing in the area: www.conshyconsignment.com www.greenestreet.com www.impactthriftstores.org...

Snow days are perfect for organizing! We’ve had a few of those this winter, so no excuses for not getting organized.

How Do You Organize a Closet?

Posted on Oct 8, 2013

I often get this question when clients ask me to organize their master closet. So here are my basic, easy to follow rules when organizing a closet. They may sound very detailed, but hey, that is why you hired me, right? From left to right, I begin grouping clothes by type and color I start with sleeveless tops, then on to short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves and finally long sleeves Next in line are jackets, which consist of suit jackets, light outerwear and zip-ups Jeans and pants are next. I separate casual ‘weekend’ wear from ‘dressy/business casual’ wear Skirts and dresses are last. I start with skirts – short to long – and finally, dresses. Dresses are further sorted by sleeve length I’m also a huge believer in shoe racks for all your shoes. Put those beauties on display, so you can easily find them Once your closet is organized, it’s easy to...

Keep Your Kids Organized This Summer

Posted on Jun 15, 2013

I have organized a few playrooms and I love these Kidkraft storage bins. They hold a generous amount of toys and you can see what’s in them. I have seen them as single, double and quadruple bins. They are also somewhat adult decor friendly! Here is another great storage idea. This unit holds books, toys and has bins for smaller toys. The larger bins are great for regular size paper, legal size and coloring books. I was able to separate and organize crafts for a client, using these bins! For more storage ideas and organization tips for kids’ playrooms, contact me! Kids Shelving Unit Children’s Storage Bench HAPPY...
