It's Fall Purging Time!

If you live in the Northeast it's almost time for the inevitable wardrobe switch to your fall/winter clothing. While you are working on your "wardrobe switch", evaluate the clothing you are storing. If you didn't wear them during the season, ask yourself why? If they are out of style, no longer fit, or you just don't like them pass them on or try to sell them. Keep only the items that you love and make you feel good, release the rest!

Tip of the Week: Organizing Success

It’s all in the labeling! If you plan on organizing a space in your home and you want it to stay that way...get a label maker. Labeling spaces naturally brings order to a space and leaves no excuse as to where something belongs when you are done using it.

Tip of the Week: Pack Like a Pro

Ziplock clear bags make packing for trips quick and easy. The next time you or a family member is traveling pickup a box of gallon sized ziplock bags and a sharpie. Pack like items (socks, underwear, athletic wear, and pajamas into the bags and label them. Don't forget to pack your liquids in them as well, if they leak it will hopefully will prevent spillage into your luggage. This method will not save space and unpacking time when you arrive at your destination.

Bonus tip: Pack 1-2 extra large pillow sized ziplocks for dirty clothing.

I’m trying to be creative with our 13 & 15 year old this rainy day. I would like them to clean out drawers in their desk and night stand. I must admit they are both organized (yes it has rubbed off), but sometimes their drawers get a wee bit messy. I’ll let you know later if I’m successful. I won’t be around to nag either, I’m heading off to an unpacking job this morning. 🤞

A messy basement storage room was in need of help, Affordable Organization was called and took the case!

A good size room in the basement of this 2-level home doubles as a laundry room and storage space. The space had become a dumping ground for items that probably weren’t going to be used again, but the final decision hadn’t been made so the pile had grown over the years. Affordable Organization was asked to help with this project so that decisions would be made quickly and efficiently.

Tip of the Week: Conceal Cords with Hooks

The summertime is a super time to organizing your garage.

Affordable Organization works in garages on a weekly basis and the most common piece that we add into the garage is additional shelving (metal or plastic). After shelving is built, we sort and purge all of the contents of the garage then place them into clear labeled bins or directly onto the shelves for quick use. Contact Affordable Organization to set up your garage consultation today.

Tip of the Week: Teach the "One In, One Out" Rule.

Children need to understand that storage is finite, and that continuing to collect eventually leads to clutter and chaos. When they get a new toy or clothing, send an old one to the donation bin. It's okay to let go!

Tip of the Week: Car Travel with the Kids

Make car seating work harder by installing inexpensive plastic shoe pockets on the back of the seats. Children can then contain their games, earbuds, and snacks for the next family road trip.
