As the summer wanes, houses sell and staging items come back. Kids return to school and moms start thinking about all of the “stuff” in the house. So, I’ve been working on a lot of organizing projects, including one in my own home – thanks to all of the staging accessories coming back into my house! Some of the recent projects outside of my home include: a garage packed with various tools and automotive supplies (an impressive assortment) – and the best part is – they had chickens and ducks and goats – oh my! They stayed in their respective areas – but I had fun paying them a visit after we were finished! I also recently helped an art teacher organize her classroom just before school started. My sister is an art teacher (and my mom was too), so it was a lot of fun working in such a familiar territory. Other projects included working with a mom to organize and store baby clothes for when the next baby arrives, and setting up a closet for her new au pair.
Some staging projects have been mixed in there, as well – but mainly a lot of items are returning… So, how does an organizer organize her own storage space? Well, it’s pretty much there, but with some spill-over. I’ll be clearing out anything that doesn’t currently have a home and adding a new shelf unit (the plastic ones from the hardware store are cheap and easy to assemble). Then, I’ll do a once over to make sure everything that does have a home is in a good spot – and re-arrange as needed. I’ll also pull out items that haven’t been used in a while and put them into the “donate” box. The shelf should help get the extra items off the floor, and that will pretty much be it. However, given that I’ll be organizing other people’s homes for the next few days, I may do this next week. Yes, professional organizers are capable of a little procrastination, too!
Live abundantly clear!
