Guest Post: Controlling “Dump” Zones

There are a few other organizers I have met in this great town of Athens. I love that we can support one another. I had the pleasure of having coffee with a new organizer just getting her feet wet in this business, Lisa Lewis.  She has some great ideas and has been working on her own home and friends spaces for some time and is now available to help others. She has a special passion for helping those whose clutter has become debilitating and extreme.  But for today I've ...continue reading

The Cottage

Fancy Food

My newest client and I have been working on different projects in her house. This week we decided to organize her pantry. She and I had looked at several pantries on Pinterest to brainstorm for ideas. She has a pretty standard large cabinet pantry with wooden shelves that are very deep. Things were getting lost in the back of the pantry and although she was still having a hard time getting all the spaces to work right for her kitchen. Unfortunately I don't have a before ...continue reading
