Happy Organized Closet Dance

It’s time to get up and dance!  Luxary closets are here!

I had the honor of meeting Sharon Tindell and Erin Hogue during the TCS Closets launch at The Container Store Farmer’s Market Location.  It was really fun meeting everyone that attended!

(Left to right Linda Cooper Smith, Erin Hogue (Senior Buyer at The Container Store), Sharon Tindell (Chief Merchandising Officer at The Container Store), Me, Megan Acuna, Amber Benton, and Cheryl Perkins)


They were serving food and cocktails in file boxes…how cute is that?!

Sharon introducing TCS Closets to everyone and raffling off $5,000 TCS Closet gift card! The energy and excitement was so amazing!

30 Day Get Organized Challenge

IMG_3605

Happy New Year!  It’s Get Organized Month and I will be giving an organizing challenge each day to get you jumpstarted on getting organized in 2015. If you haven’t done so, you can still join here.

Each day, I’ll post a new organizing task for you to tackle — from paper organizing to organizing your car trunk. Once you’re done, give yourself a pat on the back and share your achievements on TwitterFacebook  or Instagram with hashtag #30DayGOchallenge and #MasterOrganizing for a chance to win $25-$50 The Container Store Gift Card! Also be sure to follow the #30DayGOchallenge hashtag for motivation and inspiration, too.

Each challenge is based around little changes that can make a big difference. By the end of January, you’ll have learned which challenges were the toughest (and which were the most fun), and that will help you figure out the areas of your physical space and life you want to continue organizing and maintaining throughout 2015.

Are you as excited as I am? Great! Let’s get started. Simply check in or join Master Organizing to get organized in the new year!

Challenge 1:  Make your bed as soon as you wake up.  It’s very simple and will set the tone of your the day. It can help make your space look neater too.  Feel free to share how you make your bed in the comments below!DAY1

Check Out These 2014 Before and Afters

I can’t believe that 2015 is tomorrow.  What a year it has been! Check out my favorite Before and After Organizing Projects of 2014:

Starting with tons of items being shredded, recycled, donated or trashed…

I was so giddy seeing 60lbs of papers being shredded and compacted into squares, it was awesome!

Loved donating extra home building supplies and furniture to Habitat for Humanity Restore

What couldn’t get donated to Habitat for Humanity went to the local Women’s Shelter

Even smaller organizing transformations happened in 2014, which is better than no change at all…


Got rid of 4 garbage bags full of stuff and made homes for the toiletries in this bathroom…oh yeah!

When de-cluttering the bathroom cabinets we stumbled upon some fish rocks and decided to use the rocks as a colorful make up storage unit!

Reorganized furniture and set up paper management system for this Home Office!

25 garbage bags where removed from this space to create a Shabby Chic Home Office!Loved organizing all of the spaces in 2014 and I have such deep appreciation for all of the organizing encounters I have had this year.

Now get ready for 2015 because January is Get Organized month and starting on Thursday, January 1st, I will be giving away daily easy and fun organizing tips to get your 2015 rocking in organization! If you haven’t already done so, join the 30 Day Get Organized Challenge here.

I’d love to know which organizing tip(s) was your favorite.  Do let me know in the comments below, or on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram . And if there is something that bugs you the most about getting organized, let me know and I will post an organizing tip about it!

Cheers to the New Year,

Master

P.S. I do my best to post inspiring, useful and fun organizing content on YouTube and starting a new channel called Master’s Minimalist Thoughts in 2015, stay tuned =)!

Clutter Free Holiday Gifts

Don’t know what type of gift to get your loved ones?  How about gifting them experiences rather than physical things that can just add up to the clutter in their home.  Here are my favorite clutter free gifts for this year’s holiday season:

Women: Nail Salon, Massage/Spa or Facial Treatment Gift Certificates

Men: Case or bottle of their favorite alcoholic beverage or Haircut/Barber Gift Certificate

Young Adults: Movie Tickets or Concert Tickets, Help pay towards an experience that the youngster is currently interested in like..Ski/ Snowboarding Lesson, Swim Lesson, Guitar/Piano/Music Lesson, Basketball Camp, Ballet Class etc.

Children: Tickets or money to help them go to a Theme Park like Legoland, Savings Bonds, My Gym Class, or Lowe’s Build & Grow

Couple: Hot Air Balloon Ride, Gondola Ride, A Night at Bed and Breakfast,  Williams and Sonoma Cooking Classes

Family:  Grocery Store Gift Card, Restaurant Gift Card, Bake them some goods, Edible Arrangements, Invite them over for dinner for no special occasion, Cleaning service Gift Certificate, or Professional Organizing Service Gift Certificate =)

Unisex: Coffee Gift Card, Zumba/Dance/Marital Art Class, Personal Trainer Session, itunes Gift Card, Gas Card, Pay for a registration for a race like Ironman, Flying Trapeze Lesson, Sky Diving Session, or Car Wash Gift Certificate

And if all else fails create a coupon book specially tailored to them and have coupons for making dinner for the whole week, taking out the trash, watching the kids for a whole weekend.

Or donate to a person or family’s favorite cause like Charity Water

I’m excited to hear what your favorite clutter free gifts are, let me know in the comments below.

Stay Warm Out There,

Master

P.S. Don’t forget to use any overstock of drawings from your child’s school artwork to use as gift wrap or even holiday cards to hold those gift certificates!

P.S.S. I do my best to post inspiring, useful and fun content through FacebookTwitterInstagram, and YouTube. See you there!

How Organizing Can Help Couples (1)Contact

 

During this time of year we get the chance to get together with family and friends who we haven’t seen in a while.  I don’t know about you, but sometimes I can pick up conversations with people as if I just saw them yesterday, others sometimes not so much.  It all comes down to how we communicate with one another.

So I met with my good friend Anna Osborn, LMFT to discuss how couples can communicate with one another when de-cluttering your home or just even getting ready for the holiday festivities. Click the picture above to listen to our discussion or click here.

Even if you are not in a relationship, but share your space with someone, the strategies that Anna and I discuss can be easily applied to your situation as well.

There are great strategies shared in this discussion and I’d love to know which one you need to focus on most in your life, and why.

Once you have listened, joined the discussion below.  I’m excited to hear your take.

With love and deep thanks,

Master
