home organizing + move management

Packing can be a daunting task.  Doing it systematically, as written here, can ease the overwhelm.

Lists help unload our minds of what we feel we need to remember.  Writing it down gets it out of our heads and onto paper where we can cross off tasks or items as we complete them.

So, as a starting point, make a thorough list of all items you will need.  

Gather all of your items to be packed as well as all of your travel/toiletries bags.

Next up, group together all the like items.

For clothing, fold each roughly the same width then tightly roll each ite...

Families are increasingly more stretched for time, as a result of an increase in dual-income earning families, an increase in our children’s commitments, and, we own far more belongings than ever before.  So much so that a $22 BILLION a year industry has been built around personal storage.  

Virtually all product trends and sales in the U.S. home organization products market are driven by the fact that North Americans have a lot of, and many consider too much stuff. Consumers say they need more products to help corral their things. Two thirds of Amer...

My heart!  A recent job involved helping a client downsize their 5 bedroom family home to a two bedroom apartment in a retirement residence.  The family has a beautiful collection of china and flatware.  It was a true honour to be granted the opportunity to help find new homes for these treasures.  

While taking inventory of the collection, I kept thinking about the love and stories shared at the table set with these gorgeous pieces.  Many of these items I'm told were inherited by their parents and grand parents which would date them...

Life is so busy.  There are so many aspects of life to be managed on a day to day basis.  Having a home that is free of excess that you do not use allows for better function and less stress.

Assigning homes to those items worthy of occupying your space ensures your surroundings maintain order.  When items are housed in a location that creates ease of use, it is a beautiful thing.

Here is an example...this is my kitchen cabinet that hold our everyday dishes.  I've located it above the dishwasher for easy clean up and beside the dining table for easy tab...

As women, we manage multiple aspects of not just our lives but also of our entire family’s lives.  We wear many different hats and are expected to change those hats at the drop of a errr….hat.  Our crew looks to us for gum, tissue, acetaminophen, a points card, etc.  All this means that means we need to carry with us, a lot of stuff.  A pocket book, a purse, a handbag, whatever you may call it, these handy bags are our lifeline.  A day of errands, a road trip or even a full weekend of activities can lead to chaos forming inside your purse....

Getting organized is often the easiest part.  Its staying organized that many find challenging.  So many times I've been asked, "...but how do you keep up the organization?"  The answer really is easy.

One of the biggest influencers in maintaining organization is to make items easily accessible AND easy to put away.  Assign them homes that will allow you to access them without having to dig around or move other items to get at them.  Otherwise, you will almost certainly disturb the system and create a mess to clean up and rearrange....

Having a well-organized kitchen has always been a thing for me.  I'm not a great cook but I do enjoy making a nice meal for my family and friends.  So, of course, me being me, I thrive in an efficient space. I've had many varieties of pantries over the years and my current pantry wins the prize for the most challenging space to organize.  It is narrow and deep.   Putting items in this pantry without a system in place meant they were lost in the abyss that is the back of this narrow pantry.  What would happen is we would ended up trashing expired food found mo...
