#favoriteproduct #getorganized #theeducatedorganizer Favorite product alert! Everyone has their go-tos: restaurant, beverage, movie, snack, outfit. One of my favorite products I have come across is what I call the Goldilocks Bins. You can get them at the Container Store and they come in four different sizes: extra small, small, medium, and large. One of these sizes will fit whatever project you are working on! They are priced from $3.99 - $7.99 and come in an array of colors.
#theeducatedorganizer #getorganized #declutter A major part of the organizational process is purging, editing, or whatever term you’d like to call cleaning things out. If you truly want to organize a space, nine times out of ten, items will need to be cleaned out. That does not mean you have to throw everything out or donate all those items to your local Salvation Army. However, I do need to work with the client to see what they truly use. For instance, if working on a kitche
#getorganized #theeducatedorganizer #moveinready It finally happened! I came across a client that had TOO MUCH SPACE! At least, that is what they thought. The couple moved from an older home with what she described as adequate storage in the kitchen and pantry to the ultimate in kitchen storage. Sometimes clients don't want you to organize what is there. They want you to set up their organizational structure from the get-go. This means you must work a little more closely wit
#getorganized #theeducatedorganizer Sometimes when I am speaking to a friend, colleague, or family member about my organizing business, they comment, “You would die if you saw my…”. The secret is this: I don’t care about your mess. Your mess or lack of organization, or being short on time, or however you’d like to classify it doesn't bother me in the least. We all have our strengths and there are only so many hours in the day to get everything done. Do not let your embarrassm
#theeducatedorganizer #pantrygoals #pantry #snacktime #findyourfood This family needed to ensure their first grader could get to his snacks for school. This is great, because it encourages their young student to take responsibility in preparing for his day. He could easily get to what he wanted for the day AND it was labeled just for him!
#theeducatedorganizer #pantry #organization #pantrygoals This sweet family was at the mercy of a very poorly designed pantry. There were so many items stuffed into a small area. The solution? A good clean out and then creating priorities over what they needed to get to quickly.
#findyourstuff #nomoreclutter #theeducatedorganizer Before and after! Sometimes you have those every day toiletry items, but you can't see them! So you head to the store and purchase more. This drains your wallet and space. Being able to easily see what you use daily is important. For the project above, my client needed to be able to wake up and get ready quickly. Having medication, toothpaste, floss, razors within easy reach was important. Products that don't slide around in
#organized #theeducatedorganizer #functionalspace Click above to see the before and after of this bathroom countertop! Sometimes if an area of your home is causing you great anxiety, you have to totally rethink how the space is organized. It requires the organizer to work very closely with the client to understand what they want and need out of their space, in this case, the bathroom. My clients wanted to be able to prepare for their day with ease. Grab the products and tools
I have a love of Converse shoes. As a teacher, especially a science teacher of fifth and sixth grade students, it is necessary to wear closed-toe comfortable shoes that can still look cute with outfits. We do lots of labs/lab activities and I rarely get to sit down. So, in the mornings as I am scrambling to get ready for school, I know exactly where to head to find shoes that will add a pop of color to my outfit. I pull out my bottom drawer and: BOOM! There are my Chuck Taylo
