Host: Let’s put it off! Cleaning and organizing your home. Fox 5’s Shally Zomorodi is in Leucadia this morning showing us tips on how to keep it clean and wow, first up is the closet!

Shally: Hi and good morning everyone. Put your hands up if your house is completely disorganized. Yeah look, all of our hands are up and you struggle with getting your home actually looking nice, looking and feeling good. So this morning we are showing you how to reorganize your home. Obviously you recognize this face, Kathi Burns, founder of Add Space To Your Life. She’s here and we’ve invaded Lisa Knight’s house in Leucadia. We’ve invaded this so we can reorganize your home starting with your closet. What does your closet usually look like?

Lisa: It’s a wreck. There’s usually shoes on the floor, there’s laundry, there’s an ironing board, there’s a vacuum cleaner (a wet/dry vac). There’s just a height of industry in here.

Shally: That sounds like my closet. Alright Kathi, help us, help us! So take us in there, show us what are some really easy tips that people at home can do to straighten things up.

Kathi: Okay well the first thing is you never want anything on the floor. The reason being is that you want to have the floor clean so that you can vacuum. And things that tend to fall on the floor in closets are lost and gone forever and you don’t get them anyhow. So the very thing that I did was pick the pile of shoes up out of the broken basket and put them into a hanging shoe basket. This is the size that works great for gents, for women you can see over here we have the smaller sizes and they work great. It’s a wonderful thing because you can fit ten pairs of shoes in this small amount of this whole space, 4 inches basically across.

Shally: Amazing. Okay what else can we do?

Kathi: That’s the first one. The hamper — I always recommend as soon as I see the hamper lid, I take the lid off because what happens with the lid on top of the hamper, clothes get put on the lid and then the clothes don’t go into the hamper. So it becomes a little holding zone and everything gets piled on there. So if you have a hamper with a lid, I’d say definitely take it off.

Shally: I know a whole bunch of ladies at home going right now, “Yes! Now if we can just get the men to put the clothes in the hamper!”

Kathi: And the kids!

Lisa: The clothes in the hamper is a beautiful thing!

Shally: Alright, got another tip for us?

Kathi: Absolutely! We want to hang slacks with slacks, shirts with shirts, coats with coats. The top pole right here, the top shelf is usually not that functional so what you can do with it is you can stack things like the linens, blue jeans that are folded nicely on top as well as sweatshirts. Sweatshirts are bulky and take up too much pole space anyhow. So that’s what will happen is when it goes into winter you’ll have all the sweaters and sweatshirts on the top shelf.

Shally: Okay, this looks good. Thank you! How do you like your closet? Do you love it?

Lisa: I think it’s exciting!! Thank you Kathi!

Shally: Oh my gosh, wait til we get to the bathroom and kitchen! Okay so up next we are going over to the bathroom. I can’t wait for this, everybody’s bathroom is a mess. You don’t want to miss this. We’ll send it back to you guys.

how to: organize clothes & make-up without dresser/storage/closet

Published by:

1474519160_maxresdefault.jpg



Hi,
I recently moved out on my own & ditched a lot of my stuff, including a 6-drawer dresser, 2 plastic shelf drawers (3 drawers each) & now I only have one black dresser to put all my stuff in. Needless to say I wasn’t able to put all my clothes, intimate wears, socks/stockings, pants & tops into this dresser .. So I came up with this idea to use EMPTY SHOPPING PAPER BAGS for storage.

The idea came from my reluctance to part with these beautiful & colourful bags I’ve acquired from shopping. They are all in perfect conditions, strong & stable, it would have been a waste to throw them out or tuck them away waiting for a chance to use them.

By recycling these babies for storage use, I don’t have to go out and spend money on new a new dresser or buy new drawers that could take up a lot of space – space that my apartment doesn’t have. I hope you’ll find inspirations from this idea & go on to organize your clothes or come up with new ways to store things.

Tips:
– Only keep the pretty, high-quality bags with brand-names. Not only they provide the support you’ll need to store your stuff without ripping, it will always look like you just got back from shopping.
– Also keep high-quality bags with bows & patterns, the ones you’d use to store Christmas presents. & I love Christmas!
– Pastel colors & minimalist design work best. Too many colors & patterns will clutter your space.
– When storing big, heavy binders – place the heavy items in the middle and fill up space with smaller books to create balance, so the bag won’t fall over.
– Always tidy & organize your belongings by categories: clothing, books, make-up, etc. Avoid tidying by areas.
– Find & read “the life changing magic of tidying up”. It changed my life.

Here’s a tour of my husband (to-be) Ed’s organized closet! He uses elfa as well. The trickiest part of his closet is how the closet itself is longer than the opening of the door, making it tough to access the items in the back corner. If you have this problem as well (most people do!), check out how I resolved the problem making it super easy for Ed to SEE and ACCESS all of his shoes. Is your husband//wife/fiance/boyfriend/girlfriend organized or is he/she a hot mess!? Leave a comment below or create a video response!
