Could You Use 25% More Storage Space?
When I get a call from a propspective client about an organization project, there is always the comment "I'm so disorganized. I have nowhere to put anything".... and while many times that's true, often times it's just a matter of putting like things together.
When you put like with like - you actually SEE what it is that you have.
We recently packed up a kitchen, dining room and living room for a client who is having her grandchildren move her into a home that is all on one level. As is usual, before we begin packing (especially when we are not hired to do the unpack!), we first go through all cabinets, wall units, breakfronts, etc. and put like things together. From five (5) different locations, we found 42 vases! Of those 42, only eight were of good quality. All the rest were the type you get when a florist delivers flowers.
Fortunately, we were given permission to donate 30 of the florist vases.
Another time, while reorganizing a kitchen for a caterer who uses dried dill weed frequently, I found 10 jars of dill weed among four different cabinets. Some were opened, some were not. By combining the open jars and storing ALL the dill weed in one cabinet, we ended up with 6 jars. This client will not have to buy another jar of dill weed for a long time!
So, you get the picture... put like things together so YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE. And, you too, can create 25% more storage space in your own home.
