Confessions of an Organizer – Another set of eyes

December 8, 2009

Sometimes clients will hire a Professional Organizer because they need to view their space through another set of eyes. I’ve been in many homes in differnent stages of disarray. Most of the time clients feel that they don’t know where to start, and they think that their current organizational system is the only system to fit their space. Most clients are really surprised that some new suggestions and original organizational designs become the solutions they were looking for. They find that the little investment in hiring a Professional Organizer was completely worth it.

Look for Empty Space

Wine Bottles in WindowIf you are challenged by storage space, try thinking about the space that’s actually right in front of you.

All open wall spaces
Mount shelves to store books or knick-knacks that are cluttering up essential surface space.

Backs of doors
Hang up shopping bags and aprons on doors in the kitchen.  Find a new home for your kids’ raincoats and rarely-used painting smocks in the bedroom.

Underneath beds
Store seasonal items that do not require frequent access.

Suitcases

  • Keep travel accessories and seasonal shoes in an out-of-the way space.  Attach a temporary label to the suitcase so you know what you’ve stored.

Under shelf baskets

  • Store binders or rarely used books.
