Shoes. We all have them. We may not be shoe crazy and have dozens of pairs, or even hundreds of pairs, but we all have them. Heels or flats? Sneakers or loafers? Flip flops or sandals? Let’s face it, regardless of what your preference is, we all need shoes.
One of the most common sources of frustration for our clients is the growing, unorganized pile of shoes in their hall closet, the bedroom closet, the spare room closet, and…..you get the point. Shoes have a tendency to pile up all over the place. The worst thing about shoes is that you can pile them on top of each other so you end up cramming them in every nook and cranny. How many times have you opened a closet door only to find a pile of shoes on the floor? Have you ever had to shove your shoes back into the closet so you could shut the door?!

Ta-da!! Now we realize the skateboard isn’t being used as an organizational tool, but what a cool way to store your skateboard AND organize at the...
Have you completed all of your spring-cleaning tasks? Dusted? Swept? Purged? Scrubbed? Enough already! We get exhausted simply thinking about trying to cram so much into a short period of time. Won't you be glad when summer finally arrives and you can say so long to this cleaning craze?!
By now you know that we prefer the term 'non' spring-cleaning. Easy does it when it comes to cleaning and organizing. The mere thought of having to do so much at once can be completely overwhelming. We prefer the slow and steady approach. Setting reasonable goals, and allowing a reasonable amount of time to complete them.
