We take great pride in the work we do for our clients. Below you will see some of our projects, including the extensive clean out and organization of the Mothers' Home storage rooms.
An Organized Home Office
Most clutter build-up isn't intentional; it happens one day at a time.
In this case, a home office became the place where any overflow from other rooms was diverted. Over time, so much stuff was put into the room that it became impossible to enter anymore.
When this client called me, she was beside herself, desperately wanting that space back. First, we had to dig our way into the room, and then back out again! One item at a time, we determined what was trash, what was a donation, and what was valuable. We brought in some shelves to hold storage and, slowly but surely, we uncovered the space so it could be a useful office again!
Amazing Results with a Little Bit of Shelving
One of the challenges of having a small twin home is limited storage. In this house, I found a basement crammed full of unopened wedding gifts, outgrown baby clothes and toys, and other assorted clutter. On top of this, the husband had just bought a new car he wanted to store in the garage, so the exercise equipment in there needed to be shifted to the basement too! That's a LOT of stuff for a small amount of space.
But as you can see, it's amazing what a little bit of shelving can do! Not only does the basement now look clean and tidy, but there's also lots more room for the drying racks! Plus, they now have storage to spare!
This Client is My Hero!
At 30 years old, she survived breast cancer. Then, just four months after she was given a clean bill of health, her husband died suddenly, leaving her with their three children under the age of five. Obviously, keeping the house uncluttered during this period was not foremost on her mind.
Over a year later once the fog had lifted a bit, she realized that things were a bit out of control and she needed to get organized. The basement was absolutely packed with clutter, closets were overflowing, and there was no room for her kids to play. First, we tackled the basement storage room. It was covered with construction dust and debris, not to mention unpacked boxes, forgotten gifts, and holiday decorations.
On a 100 degree day, we hauled a ton of trash out of the basement into the dumpster in the backyard. The donations we put on the curb. After moving in some shelves and bins, she now had a well-organized space with room to spare; a perfect place for the rest of the clutter in the house.
Next, we tackled her two little girls' room. There was a deep closet that was packed full of clutter; some of it the girls' and some of it her father's (who she inherited the house from). We unpacked the closet, took the valuables down to the basement for storage, and nicely organized the girls' toys and books. You can see the difference!
Finally, there was the crawl space. During the year following her husband's passing, this was the dumping ground for anything and everything that she didn't want to deal with. We tackled it with the same gusto we did the basement. And now? They have a perfectly organized little storage room for things that don't really belong in the basement. This is one of my favorite organizing projects I ever worked on, and I am so proud of the mother and her kids for what they were able to accomplish!
Clean, Organized & Tidy!
Furnished basements can make for outstanding playrooms for children. But you keep your eye off those kids for more than a minute and you're going to end up with a huge, disorganized mess!
This was another sad case of a mother in mourning. She had just begun shiva for her husband and simply didn't have the strength to organize and clean up the space. It was my pleasure to come in and make sure that the playroom would be clean, organized, and tidy, so she wouldn't have to spare a thought on it
Divorce Clutter Doesn't Have to Be Difficult
Divorce, even when it is mutual, is never easy. Sometimes, rather than dealing with your ex-partner's things, it's easier just to shove them into a room and not think about them.
In this case, a divorced Dad called us in to help take back a storage room filled with his ex-wife's old stuff. We fought our way through the clutter, eventually organizing everything in bins, making this storage room back into a useful space that wasn't just filled with old memories.
