Organizing closets is one of my favorite things to do and summer is a GREAT time to tame the best, one closet at a time! I love pulling everything out, getting rid of what we don’t need, and then replacing things all neat and tidy, freshly labeled, color coded, and ready to go.
I know what you are thinking ~ big surprise Molly, you are a home organization expert. And yes, its true that I have a natural inclination to seek order in everything I do. However that doesn’t mean that the people I live with jump for joy when I say its time to organize the house.
You may know that I’m married to my college sweetheart and we have 3 children covering high school, middle school, and elementary school. We are a very active bunch and more days than not, my garage door is more like a revolving door and yes, after 5 years we had to have some parts replaced because we use it so often. To survive that level of activity, I need to organize the house in a way that makes staying organized a natural side effect for each family member. That means making sure that its easy to use our systems often and that’s not as hard as you think.
First, take time to observe how your family uses the space you want to organize and then implement a product solution that helps you maximize the space you have for the most organized result.
To help you kick off your summer organized, I’m hosting a giveaway!
This year I’ve been delighted to discover The Stow Company. Not only are their products off the hook awesome, they are a company full of wonderful people and visiting their home offices was like returning to the mothership. Their mission is clear, their product is stellar, AND they are super organized! A company with 3 unique brands for every need, my favorite starter kit comes from The Easy Track Brand.

It’s simple to add and rearrange accessories and components such as shoe storage racks, drawers, jewelry organizers, storage shelves, belt and tie racks, and valet rods. The Easy Track starter kits can be used alone or combined with other kits to organize storage spaces of different sizes from a small linen closet, to a standard reach-in closet, and even a walk-in master bedroom closet.”
