Wardrobe Preppers – Who, What, Wear? image

We’ve all had difficult mornings. You know those mornings. You can’t find that one matching sock. The shirt you grabbed has a stain on it. Your keys aren’t “where you left them." And the downward spiral continues. One of the best ways to get your time back is with Monday through Friday wardrobe prepping. If you have our shelving systems installed—or even if you don’t—using MTWTF labeling on dedicated shelving or a dresser will allow you to prepare each day’s clothing and accessories in advance. This is a great way for kids to learn to plan ahead. For adults, a glide-out valet bar offers a built-in option for daily wardrobe staging. Breathe easy with a prepped wardrobe and enjoy one more cup ...

Thinking Beyond the Closet image

Ever thought about these other areas of your home that could benefit from a customized organization system? Organization is not just about closets behind closed doors. The goal is to maintain organization throughout your entire home and, subsequently, in your everyday life.

Picture an average closet. You walk into a small dark room and fumble for a switch or string to turn on one lonely light. Even with the door flung wide open to let in as much light as possible, sometimes you can’t see what you have hiding in the shadowy corners, and you might even get to work only to discover that you grabbed the wrong navy pants for your navy jacket. Ladies, have you ever worn a black shoe with a blue shoe to work? Gentlemen, have you ever gotten to the office only to discover your suit jacket doesn’t quite match your pants? Most closets need better lighting, but more importantly, they need light in the right places. Recently, we have ...

How to De-Clutter Your Closet image

A closet can easily become a dumping ground for things we don’t use and don’t need. The items we use most often come to the front while everything else gets pushed farther and farther back. Eventually, your closet space is overwhelmed, and it becomes harder and harder to use. If your closets feel like work, it’s time to de-clutter. Most clients have tried some form of de-cluttering but found it frustrating. If you take one item out at a time and try to decide if you should keep it or not, chances are you will quickly give up. If you want a process that works, use ours: Take everything completely out of your closet. When you have an empty space in front of ...

Is Your Summer “To-Do List” Stopping You In Your Tracks? standard

If you’re like me, the Summer to-do list can drag on and be a monkey on your back.  What really motivated me to take action was the fact that my husband was having his hip replaced and I wasn’t sure if he would be able to do the usual tasks to get our home ready for the upcoming season like painting exterior areas of our house, pulling our porch furnishings out of storage and tending to the garden. My self-imposed deadline to complete everything was “before Summer.” I love that deadline because things don’t loom in the back of your mind and haunt you. Every time I would try to relax I got this little pang of guilt saying “I should be painting ...
