My First Remote Job

By | Recent Work | No Comments

This job was a first for me – I was contacted by a client I’ve worked with previously (Basement Storage) and she had an unusual request. She told me her kitchen renovation was nearly done and she was mentally exhausted from making decisions so she asked if I would “design” her kitchen organization from Nashville (she’s in Michigan). I was ecstatic and said yes immediately! I love new challenges and this was so fun to do.

She sent pictures of her kitchen so I could see all the spaces and we went back and forth for several weeks. I needed to know how much tupperware/glass containers she had, how many spices did she have, was there need for a coffee station, etc. I would add ideas to the pictures she sent and then she would look them over and decide if it worked for her.

By the time I saw her over Christmas, her kitchen was complete and she had followed my organization blueprint perfectly and, even better, it worked beautifully in her new kitchen. She needed my help for a few random items but overall she was able to unpack her entire kitchen and she was thrilled with the way it turned out.

A House-Wide Job, Part 2

By | Recent Work | No Comments

As mentioned in the previous post, A House-Wide Job, this client purchased my recurring package and so we have organized multiple areas of her house over the course of 6 days. We have done so much more than what is shown in these few pictures including her desk, her daughter’s arts and crafts cupboard, and the coat closet. We’ve purged, donated, thrown out, recycled, passed on and re-arranged and along the way we’ve laughed and became friends.

To complete these looks we shopped at The Container Store, Target and Dollar General, along with utilizing some things she already owned (which I love to do!).

In her closets, once we went through every article of clothing she owned and donated the ones she didn’t wear anymore, we were able to organize her clothes by occasion. Regular clothes were all put in one closet and her work/dressy clothes in the other. She was so excited to have them separate and I love it too. Now her morning routine is even simpler since she knows everything in front of her is appropriate for whichever day of the week it is.

We still have a couple more days to work together and I’m so excited that soon all her trouble areas will be gone!

A House-Wide Project

By | Recent Work | 3 Comments

This client decided to purchase my “Recurring Package” so we work our way through her entire house, and we have done exactly that. Slowly but steadily we have worked in almost every area of her house. She’s a single mom who works full time and has a sweet little girl and a large pup to care for when she’s not at work. Because of this our days working have been spread out over several months and we’re not finished yet. She still has a couple more dates left before the package is complete but we’ve made great progress in her house and I always enjoy working with her.

Our first day was spent in the kitchen and together we tackled every drawer and cupboard. Some spaces were changed completely while others just needed to be purged, rearranged and organized. The pantry was set aside for my next visit and with some great wire baskets from Dollar General we were able to get her cluttered pantry under control in just a few hours.
