Organised: Toddler’s Room

When Carole sent me a message telling me about her toddler's room she included words like "It's bad", "maybe you wanna sit before looking!" and "feel free to say no". I am sure many of you can relate to this - there is always that one space in the house we avoid because, quite simply, we just don't know where to start. In this case, the room was not being used because of the clutter that seemed...

Organised: Living Area

I only had around an hour with Linda. Linda had the problem that many of us face when moving homes. We box everything up and don't quite get to unpacking everything again or we don't have a place for everything or we need to sort and get rid of old items we no longer need.   My first tip: Have one room where you can work from, i.e. one room where you put and pull things from. In this way,...

Organised: Teen Pad

When Paula sent me a message, she said "It is one of those situations of opening the door, rolling the eyes and saying I don't have the energy for this and closing the door once again". I know so many people who feel like this when starting on their organising journey but don't be discouraged. The freedom and time you will save once you are organised can be life changing!   Paula's...

Organised: Studio Apartment

Organising a Studio Apartment can be quite difficult but organising a Studio Apartment with a 2-year-old may seem almost impossible! Getting kids to join in with cleaning and organising is so important, so you need to celebrate their small victories and learn to allow them space to mess a little.   Shaz's Vision This past weekend I was able to work with Shaz and her gorgeous 2-year-old, Miss...

Organised: Big Boy Bedroom

I am really enjoying getting to know all the moms in the valley. Each of you have your own unique story and it is wonderful to work with you in getting organised. Today I worked with Renée to organise her son's bedroom. You can see the "before" shots below and above (featured image):   Renée's Vision Renée has a very neat home but the space she needed organised was her youngest son's...

How to get organised: Step 2

If you haven't already, please go back and read "How to get organised - Step 1" to get started on your organising journey. So, by now you should have written down what your vision and purpose is for the room and what you need in the space you are organising. You need to be ruthless here. Don't justify items. Refer back to the vision and purpose of the room and check yourself. Or...what your...

Organised: Little Boy Bedroom

After Krystyna and I had a brief discussion about what her expectations and vision for her son's bedroom would be, we got right into organising and forgot to take a proper "before" photo. Sorry! I am just so excited about organising! We did remember a little way in and you can see what it looked like in the photo below:     Krystyna's Vision We discussed what the main purpose of the...

How to get organised: Step 1

As Oprah said, your home should "rise up to meet you". Do you feel like it does that when you arrive home? Or is it the opposite? Having a disorganised home wastes a lot of time, creates stress and frustration, makes it difficult to spend time with the people you love and may be unhygienic in some cases. We live in a world where we are encouraged to have more stuff, to be busier than busy and at...
