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.

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.

Saint Louis Closet Co Logo

Top 6 Areas People want Organized:  Office/Home Office, Kitchen, Closets, Master Bedroom, Garage, Attics and Basements and Laundry Rooms.

Getting Organized creates many benefits such as relieving stress and anxiety, having more useable space and having a general sense of control and calm.  When homes are organized and everyone has a place for their stuff, family life is happier and there is more free time for fun and relaxation.

Start small, a drawer or closet…then move to rooms that need the most help.  Create locker areas for member of the family, establish a ‘drop area’ for backpacks, wallets and purses.  Create a system for incoming paperwork (mail, bills, schedules, emails, etc).  Donate unused clothes and toys to local charities and clear out space!!  Create More Space Places!

Saint Louis Closet Co. trained designers can give you a free in-home estimate and help you get on your way to a more organized year!

Saint Louis Closet Co. Celebrates 21 Years!

21st_Birthday

Saint Louis Closet Co. is proud to be celebrating 21 years of organizing St. Louis!  One thing that has remained constant over the years is the need to organize!

The cold winds of winter call for us to break out our sweaters and large coats, making this the perfect opportunity to update your closet system.

“I always use the changing of the seasons to take a good, hard look at my home’s organization,” says Saint Louis Closet Co. owner Jennifer Williams.  “As I put away my family’s summer clothes and pull out our winter supplies, I make a point to pull out any of the clothes that can be donated to charity or can be passed on to friends and family members with growing children.”

Jennifer adds that she also swaps out some shelves for baskets or extra drawers so that the closet never gets cluttered.  “This is a simple way to keep our home organized and looking fresh without having to spend an arm and a leg to do it.”

Do not banish your summer clothes to overstuffed boxes crammed into the corner of your basement.  We can help you organize a space that you can use as off-season storage for your belongings.  That way, when the inevitable warm day hits in the middle of winter (as it so often does in this unpredictable St. Louis climate), you will not have to go digging through boxes of summer clothes just to find that one pair of shorts.

Call Saint Louis Closet Co. at (314) 781-9000 to schedule a free in-home estimate with one of our designers!
