Houston Home Office Organizing

Got piles of papers? Contact Professional Organizer Houston to Organize Your Home Office.

Working from home requires self-discipline, it helps to have a dedicated space for a home office to allow for creative flow and isolation from daily distractions.

Organize your home office and improve your productivity - and profitability.

Being organized is being in control - to know the status of every aspect of your business at all times.

A messy, cluttered office can result in incomplete work, missed deadlines and lost information. Your desk is not a storage locker, it's a work surface. It is time to remove those piles of paper occupying your desktop.

The worst decision you can make is not making a decision about those piles, because no paperwork decision = greater paper buildup.  All documents need to have a home.
There really aren't very many choices for processing paper. Tossing them into the circular file is a very good option for some. Others to files for future reference, or your follow up system for papers you need at some later time, plus an ongoing project system.

Remember, the time spent searching through your office for a piece of paper, phone number or customer's address is unproductive time. 

Want to succeed in your small business? 

Get focused! Get organized!  Stay on task!

Ways to Organize Your Scarves Houston

Are you a great lover of scarves? Houston Professional Organizer has great storage solutions for your scarves.

Does you scarf collection just keep getting bigger and bigger?

These days, everyone is getting in on the scarf trend. And not just during winter. People are wearing scarves year round now. They’re collecting a variety of colors, patterns, fabrics, and styles.

Those of you who like to wear scarves probably might need a good storage solution for them.

Great way to organize your scarves is to use:

1. Scarf Hanger

Hanging your scarves takes zero drawer space and it displays them nicely for easy access.

18 Compartments in three different sizes

2. Scarf drawer

My favorite way :)
Wrapping your scarves around cardboard keeps them in great shape and makes them fit nicely into a basket or drawer.

If you have drawer space available, this is probably your best scarf storage option. Especially if your scarves are valuable or made of fine materials like silk, it’s best to keep them folded or rolled up in a drawer where they won’t become snagged, stretched, faded, or destroyed by pets. Rolling them is especially good because they won’t get creases.

3. PVC Pipe Scarf Organizer

PVC pipe is really inexpensive and is a great way to keep scarves and neckties organized. You will need to measure the height of each drawer and then just cut the pipe into the proper height. Depending on the depth of your drawer, you may be able to get several pipe organizers in there and then you just roll up your neckties and/or scarves and stick them in the pipes.

4. Towel Bar
You can install a basic towel bars on the inside of your French doors.

some other great ideas to store and organize your scarves...

Magdalena Bogdan, European Professional Organizer Houston
having a little bit of fun with my fabulous client who had 199 scarves: yes we counted them and yes we donated 1/3 to

Every season,  my client found herself adding new colors and patterns and fabrics, because she is a big believer that every outfit looks a whole lot cuter and more stylish with a scarf. That said, lots of scarves equals a big storage and organization issue.

I prefer to organize scarves first by color and then season. Scarves of similar hues are grouped together to make it easy to find the right scarf for whatever outfit you might be wearing. I also keep all-seasons scarves separate from those thicker, wool and knitted scarves generally reserved for winter.

If your scarf collection reaches the double digits, it is time to donate some out of style scarves to Goodwill .

I hope with some of those ideas your scarves will be organized and easy to find!

Get Rid of Storage Unit, save money

Professional Organizer Houston will help you get rid of storage unit and save you money.

"Whoever started the storage business is a genius.”

Why people pay to keep their things in storage?
Common reasons/answers: they moved to a smaller house, inherited stuff from a parent, or just accumulated too much to keep at home.

The sad part is when renters lose their belongings when they cannot pay their bills. Or when they die.

Then the storage units are put up for auction.
“At auctions of storage units, the contents are a mystery. Amid the junk buyers may find Rolexes and diamonds, or just someone else's sad story.”

Can you imagine all of your belongings being auctioned off to the highest bidder because you can't afford to pay the storage unit fees?

According to the Self Storage Association, 50% of storage unit renters are storing what won't fit into their homes. 1 out of every 11 Americans rents storage.

“The self-storage business is booming thanks to a nation of pack rats who cling to such things as 8-track tapes and pants with waist sizes long surpassed.”

If you have had a storage unit for longer than six months, it’s time for you to have a garage/craigslist sale. You will not only be saving yourself $50-$80 a month in storage fees, but you’ll also make some many selling all of your old unwanted stuff.

Make a committment to yourself and your wallet, to get rid of your unwanted stuff within two months.

Storage Wars Texas

I can arrange for local charities to pick up unwanted items and get you a receipt for tax purposes.
I can drive to Goodwill to donate unwanted itmes, or hold a garage sale for you, for anything you don’t or can’t wear or use any more.

Remember: Use the two-year rule — if you haven’t worn it in two years, it’s time to say goodbye to it.

How To Organize Your Closet

Contact Professional Organizer Houston to get your closet organized. Make getting dressed fast and easy every morning.

Organizing a closet is never easy, especially if you have more stuff than available closet space.

The fastest way to organize your closet is to own fewer clothes because visually it will be easier to find what you’re looking for.

To organize your closet, take everything out and put  it on your bed; go through each piece of clothing one item at a time and assess when you wore it last.  If you haven’t worn something in one year and it’s in good repair, donate it to charity.

Start three piles of items: those you want to keep, those you will donate/throw away and a pile for maybes. Anything with too much wear, holes or stains needs to go straight into the trash. Holding on to old, damaged or unused items creates clutter, which slows down the flow of energy.

Few tips for organizing your closet

Tip 1: Don't keep what You Don’t Need/Wear
Tip 2: Go through your closet twice a year to maintain an organized wardrobe
Tip 3: Break the project down into small chunks, so its not so overwhelming
Tip 4: Get rid of all the wire hangers and dry cleaner bags cluttering up the closet
Tip 5: Use all the same hangers
Tip 6: Have the hangers facing the same way
Tip 7: Separate the types of clothes – group shirts with shirts, pants with pants, dresses with dresses
Tip 8:Organize by color – after you’ve separated the clothes by type and style - now it's time to organize them by color – all white short sleeve shirts together, all blue jeans togehter, etc.
Tip 9: Don’t keep anything on the floor 

Got messy closet? It is time to get organized!

Getting rid of items you don't wear on a regular basis is a key part of keeping your closet clutter-free.

Here are some of my photos from a recent Closet Organizing project in Houston:
