How to De-Clutter Your Closet image

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 ...

Pittsburgh’s Ultimate Bike Storage Guide image

For organization, bicycles present a strange challenge. They are large, bulky, awkwardly shape, and often dirty. Suburban families typically get bicycles for recreation, which means they might be used infrequently enough that they end up in some forgotten corner of the garage. Urban families, on the other hand, might use bikes for daily commutes, but that means having to find a place to store them in what is likely a more compact living space. No matter where you live, you bought a bicycle because you planned to use it. Whether you use your bike daily or only on the weekends in the summer, you should resist the urge to throw it into a corner—of your entryway or your garage—and you ...

Old School Organizing: Lessons I’m Still Learning From My Mom standard

My mom’s shoebox for receipts, a large check register that would not fit in your wallet, and an over-stocked pantry.  These are three things that in my professional life I might have advised against.  But my mom recently passed away and is continuing to teach me important lessons in simplicity. Her shoebox of receipts was a perfect receptacle for the year’s spending.  Little handwritten notes chronicled what was important.  It took twenty minutes to sort and document medical expenses, taxable items and things that were to be kept.  It was easy to see where she went and how she navigated life using this little paper trail.  There were not two or three places to look for these.  They were not ...
