Creative Use of Space

Great use of space inside kitchen cabinet.

I am speaking at Alta (Independent Living for Seniors) in Johns Creek this Thursday about utilizing their space most effectively. There are thousands of great products and organizational tools out there but here are a few of my favorites:

1. Think outside the box by using the spaces inside your doors. Most of us do not utilize the space inside our cabinet doors or behind our bedroom and closet doors. In the kitchen, the inside of your cabinets can hold spice racks or hooks for items like measuring cups and spoons. Buy the Real Simple multi-pocket hanging storage and put it inside your office closet door for office supplies like paper clips, scissors and envelopes. Behind your bathroom door, it can hold cotton balls, q-tips and hair accessories. In your kids room it can be used for their toys, shoes and games or on your bedroom door for shoes, socks or the loose change your husband pulls out of his pants each evening.

2. Under your bed: Buy bed lifts for extra space and then use under-the-bed bags or bins for out of season clothes, shoes, books, memorabilia, etc.

3. Vertical space: Use bookshelves, built-ins or single shelving to take advantage of that extra wall space above the furniture. This is especially useful in an office, kitchen or kids room.

Get Organized
January is GO Month which stands for Get Organized! I know, January is the start new routines, better habits and can you say the word GOALS? I know blah, blah and yada yada but it’s also a great time to declutter, get a new calendar and start fresh!

Baby steps: start by donating some old clothes, toys or anything you have not used in a year. Shred your old bills, recycle some old magazines. If you do a room each week, you can tackle it in no time.

Thanksgiving Planning

Turkey Day time-saving tip: Only 10 days until Thanksgiving. If you are hosting, plan your menu today, know your total head count by Friday the 16th and start shopping and cooking this weekend. You can prepare many side dishes ahead (mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese, stuffing, broccoli casserole, etc.) and freeze them so all you have to do is reheat on Turkey Day instead of cooking for 12 hours.
