Take a look at your closet…how does it make you feel?

When I look at my closet I see: 
_ c lutter and disorganization
_ clothes and accessories I love
wasted space that is crammed full
 
My closet makes me feel:
like I am wasting valuable time searching for things I need
_ irritated and unmotivated
_ well prepared for the day’s events

 

If I could change anything about my closet it would be:
_ the contents
_ the configuration
_ the closet system materials—shelving, doors, lighting etc
_ the size
_ all of the above

 
  Our closet space has an impact on our attitudes about our things and our home. It also is one of the top considerations for potential home buyers. Space matters! The issue is usually size, layout, or the amount of contents we are storing. Your answers to the above should help you understand which of the three issues are bothering you more and where you might want to invest next in your closet. For example, if you are suffering from too much stuff, you may just need help sorting and determining what clothing and accessories are current and suit your style. If you feel like the space is not well used, perhaps you want to invest in functional closet products. Or if the layout is truly frustrating, then a closet system may be the best answer for you.  
We at Birdie Brennan Custom Closets want your closet to offer a Triple A experience:
Ample enough to comfortably store your treasured and valued things
Accessible and convenient
Aligned with your home’s style
When closets are designed with your inventory in mind, peace and contentment can be achieved. The proof is in the results: contents are readily available at your fingertips, a variety of features are designed to address a variety of inventory, and your space feels updated and functional.
If your closet falls short of these goals, maybe it is time to change the relationship between you and your closet! We can help!

Ever have that feeling after your home has been cleaned that things still don't seem put away and tidy? Or maybe you get that nagging sense when you walk into a room that things still need a "once over." Even in frequently-cleaned homes, we can feel like there is more to do when our clutter is the first thing that catches our eye in each room. Well the clutter itself may not be the only culprit. Our house habits can help highlight the things we use in a way that is not flattering.  Can you recognize any of these hotspots in your home?

I always look forward to this cooler time of year to review coats and to decide where best to donate them. So many times when we hear about making a donation, we feel pressure to give financially. But giving something once owned and loved can be a fulfilling part of holiday tradition. I especially love involving kids so they can learn the idea of thinking of others at this time of year. Showing our kids how to prepare an item for donation teaches them how to care for others, but it also shows them to consider how their belongings can be useful beyond their own toy box. The act of cleaning up a gently used truck or putting new batteries into a remote control car to donate demonstrates to kids that our items are valuable to others--and that condition matters. This donation ritual is also an important purge ritual before the influx of contents that are about to enter our homes.

For even the most novice cooks, between now and the end of the year, many kitchens are about to get a workout. We may be hosting parties, holiday meals, trying a new recipe or two, participating in pot lucks, or baking with friends and family. Would't it be great if everything we need is at our fingertips--clean and functional for when we need it?


So often the tools and items we rely on at this time of year are somewhere in the back of cupboards, sideboards, or stored on basement shelving. I recommend gathering, cleaning, and staging the items you know will be needed in the coming weeks. In last week's post ( https://www.getorganizedcolumbus.com/the-ready-made-pantry ) we talked about a well-stocked pantry for the holiday season; for now, let's focus on the items we will likely need in the kitchen and dining areas.
