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.

Kirkwood High School alum, Jennifer Quinn Williams and her company Saint Louis Closet Co. donated a new and organized Pioneer Pride School Store. The new store is located across the hall from the Library and houses spirit wear, school supplies and miscellaneous KHS gear! By having the larger and more organized space the school is able to carry more options for apparel. Check-out a time-lapse installation video here. KIRKWOOD HIGH SCHOOL STORE

Jennifer graduated from KHS in 1984 and was inducted into the KHS Inaugural Hall of Fame in 2010. Williams credits her success as a business owner to the strong foundation of education she received at KHS and she continually gives back to the school as a token of her appreciation. In 1997 Jennifer donated $10,000 to the KHS Journalism program and over $200,000 in custom shelving. The donations help the school organize classrooms, offices and books.

Jennifer is honored to be a proud supporter of KHS.

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.

Back to School Tips

5 Helpful Back-to-School Tips

Fabric Boards

Tip #1
Get a routine the first few weeks of school, and make a place for your kids and their stuff. A place for backpacks, shoes, coats and sports equipment. Once this routine and system is established, stick to it…it will save you and your kids hours looking for things.

CollegeSchoolLockers

Tip #2
Establish a storage area in your home for extra school supplies. Stock up at the beginning of the year so your kids can always replenish their backpacks and lockers without last minute trips to the store.

Pearwood

Tip #3
Make a family bulletin board for calendars, sports schedules and invitations. Keep everything in this one place so everyone knows what everyone else in the family is doing.

ShowroomOffice

Tip #4
Purge your kids closets and drawers of all clothing they don’t wear or doesn’t fit. Try on everything and make a list of necessities. Head to the stores armed with a list needs and sizes…this will prevent unnecessary purchases.

HomeOffice

Tip #5
Make sure you have a special homework area set up so your kids ‘have their place.’ This desk area or kitchen table should have good lighting, comfortable seating, access to a computer and wifi, if needed, and be quiet and away from distractions.

Summer’s coming to an end and school is starting soon.  All kids need a place to work at home, a place to put their school supplies, a place to hang their coats, a place to put their shoes so they don’t track playground dirt or soccer mud into your house, and the perfect place for that is a St. Louis Closet Co. desk, cubby or locker.

RedLockers

My kids go back to school in two short weeks and as soon as they come home from their first day of school with lots of binders, textbooks, and other supplies I know they will be able to stay organized with their desks.  They have a place for everything.  The drawers hold their pencils, pens, markers, erasers, paper, and notebooks with ample room for sketchbooks, books, and fun little gadgets.  The shelves on top provide a perfect place to easily arrange their textbooks and binders.  And hanging over the desk is a fabric board to hang photos, awards, and their school schedule on.  Everything they need is in one place, easily accessible, and organized.

In addition to their desk, as soon as they walk in after soccer practice or piano lessons they take off their shoes, put them on their shoe shelves, hang their jacket and soccer bag up in their Cubby, and there is no mud or cleat marks throughout the rest of the house.  Their St. Louis Closet Company lockers and shoe shelves are perfect.

What better way to start school off organized then a St Louis Closet Company desk and locker.  Call Saint Louis Closet Co. today 314-781-9000 to get a free in-home estimate to organize your kids and your home.  Start the school year off right!!  Estimates only take about an hour and when our trained designers leave your home you will have a design and price for your new project. 314-781-9000.
