Get Organized with Custom Closets

Moms, Treat Yourself This Fall!

You have been getting the kids packed and unpacked from Summer camps, getting the family to and from Summer vacations, and getting everyone organized for the new school year with trips to the store for books, paper, pens, pencils, markers, haircuts, new clothes, new shoes, new backpacks, lunch boxes and everything else under the sun. Now that you have successfully transitioned the kids and the family into the new school year, it is time to take some time to get yourself organized.

I know there are plenty of moms out there who put themselves last on their list of priorities when it comes to things like buying new clothes, buying new shoes, getting a haircut, and so on. What many mothers do not realize, though, is that if you are putting yourself last, who is putting you first? Getting your children organized for the new school year–and more importantly keeping them that way–is not going to happen unless you get yourself organized first.

Let’s start by taking a look at your bedroom closet. Whether it is a disaster or could just use a good sort-through, now is the perfect time to take some time for yourself and get your belongings in order for the new season. Saint Louis Closet Co. specializes in getting you organized, and we can work with you to create a bedroom closet that will work with your daily life. That is the great thing about getting a 100% custom closet: the space is designed with your needs on the forefront. One of the many features that we offer is shoe shelving. You can get flat or slanted shoe shelving for as many pairs of shoes as you need. No longer will you need to spend 20 minutes digging through a pile of shoes on the floor trying to find one matching pair.

Being able to get out the door as efficiently and quickly as possible in the morning is directly related to how prepared you are to face the day. If you have to spend 15 minutes in the morning deciding what to wear, ironing your clothes and picking out shoes, that means it is going to be 15 minutes that you are unable to make sure your kids are up, moving and ready to get out the door. A few things that I use daily to get myself organized in the morning are the folding ironing board and telescoping rod from Saint Louis Closet Co. I get myself as prepared as possible the night before so that I can focus my attention of getting everyone out the door on time and on schedule. Saint Louis Closet Co. offers a folding ironing board that fits conveniently in the space of a 24” wide drawer. After ironing my clothes for the next day, I hang it on one of our telescoping rods that extend from the side of our closet unit. And by having shelves that clearly display the days’ possible shoe options, I never have to dig for a pair of shoes to match my outfit.

The reason I chose to focus my post this week on getting moms organized is because I believe that moms’ needs are the last ones on the list of priorities. We all need to realize that, as mothers, we are the driving force behind the success of our families, and if we do not take some time to take care of getting ourselves organized in the short run, we will not be able to get the rest of the family organized in the long run.

St. Louis Closet Co. Fall Special

Fall is the perfect time to get organized and St. Louis Closet Co.’s Fall Special is just in time to help you with your projects.  From Master Walk-in Closets to Pantries and Murphy Beds, Saint Louis Closet Co. can create More Space in your home.

Along with the new season and new school year, it is once again time to reorganize the spaces in your home to coincide with the incoming season. If you have a Saint Louis Closet Co. system, this would be the time when you would re-adjust your shelves to be able to comfortably store your children’s growing clothing and shoe inventory.

With summer coming to a close, shoes are one thing that are going to require more space this season, for example switching out your kids’ flip flops for their sneakers and eventually snow boots. Our 100% adjustable systems give you more room for doing just that. Just add, remove or adjust a shelf to make room for fall’s bulkier items, such as jackets, sweaters and jeans.

I cannot count the number of times that I have told my kids to stop throwing their backpacks and jackets on the closest piece of furniture the second they walk in the house after school or soccer practice. The solution we have found at our home is lockers and cubbies for our mudroom, so that every time my kids walk in the door, the closest piece of furniture is a cubby and hook especially designed for their belongings. This also works wonders for sports equipment and sports bags.

Teachers can even find some organization for their classrooms this school year. Getting all the pencils, markers, glue, blank paper, books, construction paper, scissors and miscellaneous supplies organized will make the school year go just that much smoother.

Saint Louis Closet Co. design every type of system to meet everyone’s organizational needs, and that includes classroom supply closets, mail centers, storage rooms, lockers and even kid’s home desks.

Call 314-781-9000 today to schedule your free in-home consultation.

Lose That Excess Clutter – St. Louis Closets!

Reality check: how’s your New Year’s resolution going? It is five months into 2015 and if you’re like most people, you are busy, stressed and have put your resolutions on the back burner. If your resolution was to get organized–as it was for many people–it is time to do a serious self-evaluation.

Rather than being overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of getting your de-cluttering your home, I personally think that the best way to attack home organization is to take it room-by-room. With summer almost here, let’s begin with the kids’ rooms, so grab your nearest child and get to work.

KidsClosetKids grow like weeds (especially babies and toddlers), so start by going through their clothes and toys making sure to get rid of the items that they do not wear or do not fit anymore. Inspect their clothing for tears and mend those pieces that need buttons or other alterations. Throw away or donate outgrown toys and games right away.

If you have a Saint Louis Closet Co. closet system in your child’s room, the next step would be to adjust the shelves and rods to maximize your space. The great thing about having a Saint Louis Closet Co. closet is that our systems are 100% adjustable, so your closets actually grow as your children grow.

After seeing the results and witnessing the effect it has on your daily life, you will want to maintain that organization, but wanting to maintain it and actually doing it are two completely different things.

Remember, we are all human, and we will at one time or another falter and a room or two will lose its organizational luster, but that’s okay: just make sure you identify accumulating clutter before it gets out of hand and you give up on the whole thing. The best way to succeed in keeping your spaces organized is to make it something that the entire family can participate in.

The earlier you get your children involved with keeping their own space and your home in tact, the more likely they will be to abide to organization as they get older.

Remember, getting organized is like losing weight: it’s a marathon, not a sprint, so make the commitment, set short-term, realistic goals and don’t beat yourself up if you slack everyone once in a while. We all deserve a little bit of indulgence every now and again; just make sure to keep yourself in check and don’t let it get out of hand. The rewards of staying organized with help simplify your life, and we could all use a little more of that in our lives.

St. Louis Closet Co. Get Organized This Summer!

Summer is the perfect time to get organized!!  All those hot, lazy days when you head inside to escape the St. Louis humidity….start getting organized.  You don’t have to take on a big project, start small.  One organized drawer will set you on the path of organizational success!!

Take the catch all drawer in the kitchen or Home Office where everything gets dumped.  Take everything out and clean the inside of the drawer with a clean damp cloth.  Then you may want to add a drawer liner out of felt, wallpaper or decorative paper to brighten up the bottom of the drawer.  Then you’re ready to begin.

6cyISK69vffXhYSzqHAtpySpjF2P0_ndZfD5tv9XDCg

Sort items into several ‘like’ piles, make sure to throw away all trash, broken items or things you no longer use.  Then start deciding if you want drawer dividers, individual containers, or even small bowls and tupperware work great for organization.  Invest in a labeler, readily available at any office supply store, and label the bottom of the drawer or container with what goes in that space…this will help everyone in the family get the right things in the right places.

Stand back, admire, pat yourself on the back and enjoy how good it feels to have that one drawer organized.  Now you’re ready to tackle your closet.  Give Saint Louis Closet Co. a call at 314-781-9000 to schedule a free in-home closet consultation.  Take advantage of our Get Organized Special of 10% off your custom closet order.  Call for more details.
