Have you ever sat in the middle of your house and wondered how in the world you were going to get your space organized? Where should you start? Will it make a difference? Is it overwhelming not knowing how to begin. That is precisely where my client this week was. She has a toddler and a baby…enough said. She didn’t have hoards of things all over her house. She didn’t have a dirty house. She just had stuff and hadn’t quite figured out how to fit it in her space. She had stuff she had been given from others and needed to make a space for those items she had not intended on bringing into her space.
We worked very hard together all week and I think we were very productive. I was super impressed with the way she was able to make decisions quickly on whether to keep or get rid of items. She was open to ideas I had and willing to let me move around entire rooms of furniture to help her space function just a little better. We ended up pulling several bags of trash out of her home. We piled up about 5 boxes/bags of items to donate and we accumulated 3 huge bags of clothing and one large bin of items for her to sell at the upcoming consignment sale. We overhauled her laundry room/pantry, kitchen cabinets, playroom, son’s room, daughter’s room and her hall closet.
Here are some before and afters from our project.
I think ONE WEEK of work entirely changed her home. We have plans to complete the house project and finish with her master suite and the garage. I believe she will be able to keep her space organized and have a more positive happy mindset now that we’ve worked to make her house neat and pretty!
I think my client would definitely say these spaces are both Neat & Pretty now that we’ve had a chance to work on them together. Hopefully this will inspire you to get started on a project of your own!
