This was my first official “out of state” job. I have done a few up in Michigan when I am home visiting my family, but this client flew me out specifically to help her and her family.
This client has 4 children (including twin toddler boys), she home-schools her older 2 daughters 3 days a week and runs her own essential oil business with Young Living, so to say she is busy is an understatement. The last couple years have been crazy for this family of 6 and now that life is beginning to settle down she and her husband realized they needed some help to get their clutter under control.
I arrived on a Tuesday and got to work right away in the guest room/home office. Her daughters used to sleep in that room and had just recently moved to the garage (which had been renovated into a 4th bedroom). When the girls changed rooms their clothes in the closet didn’t make the switch so the closet in the office/guest room was full of their clothes. After emptying the closet and discussing ideas for the office area I got to work. The room slowly came together over the next few days as we shopped for different item needed to get her organized and re-worked certain spaces. By the end of my trip her desk, cubbie shelving unit and chest of drawers were all organized to help make her job easier.
The next room I moved on to was the girls’ bedroom. We made sure to work in there on a day when they were in school and the boys were with a babysitter, so my client was able to help me without any distractions. Once the girls got home they were able to help and even put a mirror in their newly organized closet so they had a “dressing room” to get changed in. The mom also wanted to put a reading nook in the bedroom and the girls were so excited to have a special place where they could sit and read.
