Getting rid of stuff

Who wants to leave a mess for their family and kids to clean up? Though this is not a fun topic, it is a good idea to have your things in order, particularly in the event of ‘the inevitable’. Your family and kids will appreciate it and you will feel good about it. It’s called peace of mind.

After 3 years of paying a high rate for climitized storage, my client was finally at her wits end and decided to purge, consolidate, and clearly mark boxes. All of these boxes, front and center, are ready for the shredder*. Between this and the trash, we were able to get rid of 1/3 of what was in the unit. Not only was she able to get a smaller unit, we found a facility much closer to her home and for 1/2 the price.

She saved money, got to feel free, and now knows that what’s in there is needed and necessary for her to keep.

It is truly amazing – her story is pretty typical. We hold on to many things we don’t need. Regular spot checks of belongings goes a long way in keeping a free spirit.

Treating Socks with Respect!

I am a little nutty about my socks –  you could call me a sock fanatic. Until recently, I had tried every-which-way to  organize my socks without success.  Seems easy enough – I mean, it’s just socks, right?

I’ve tried lumping them, rolling them, folding them, stacking them and they all look good at first, but within days, my drawer is a mess again.


And then I found this drawer organizer.  It has eight snap-together pieces to create up to 32 compartments. Now my drawer looks like this:

Because I have over 32 pairs of socks, some of them had to be rolled side by side, and they fit snuggly and stay in place.  As I use a pair, I move the ones that are doubled up in the back to the empty spots.  I just love the way it looks – pleases my eyes and keeps it looking clutter free and organized.

These separators can be purchased at Bed, Bath and Beyond for just under $10.
