Fridge/ Freezer Decluttering and Organizing

By CSC - February 28th, 2017

Woman reaching into fridge

At Closet & Storage Concepts, we’re always looking for ways to help our customers declutter and get organized. That includes all aspects of their lives such as in their fridge and freezer. Read on for ways to make room in your fridge. Cooking and entertaining will be a whole lot easier with an organized fridge!

Step 1: Devote Time to Decluttering

Like many decluttering projects, it all starts with timing and a schedule. Block off a couple of hours to go through your fridge to declutter, clean, and get organized. And don’t forget to schedule in a couple of breaks. After all, getting organized can be hard work!

Step 2: Take Everything Out

Sure it may seem unnecessary to take everything out, but by going through this process you will have the opportunity to see everything that is currently taking room up in your freezer and fridge. That jar of jam you forgot about from two years ago? Who knew it was living in the back corner of your fridge! Taking everything out ensures that you have taken a complete inventory of what you own.

For any items that are clearly past their expiration dates (use your sense of smell and sight to help with this), just toss them out. For any items that you’re unsure of, set them aside in one pile. Put everything else in a keep pile.

Step 3: Clean!

We mean it. Freezer burns and stains on shelves can be dissolved. Take bins out and give them a good wipe with disinfectant. This is a great time to start with a clean slate. A sparkling clean fridge will make it easier to see and find items.

Step 4: Toss Out and Organize

It’s time to do any final toss outs before you start placing items back into your fridge. For any items that you’re unsure about, toss them, unless you already have a recipe in mind to use them.

Once you’ve cleared out the necessary items, it’s time to begin placing items back into your fridge. Consider rearranging shelves and bins to make the most of the space you have. Stackable plastic or metal shelves can be used to help double shelving space. Place fragile items on top shelves and heavier items on the bottom.

When it comes to the meat and vegetable drawers, don’t neglect them! Set them at desired temperatures to make foods stay fresher for longer. Separating veggies and meats is beneficial to keep germs or bacteria from spreading to other foods.

Once everything is squared away, you’ll have the perfect organized fridge. Be sure to reorganize and recalibrate every month or so to keep it looking fresh and clean. A clean fridge and freezer is a great starting place for an organized kitchen.

Apply similar organizing goals to your kitchen pantry to make cooking and baking easier. When it comes to custom pantry solutions such as shelving or pullout drawers, or even a place for cookbooks, Closet & Storage Concepts is your premier choice! Find a location near you to get started.

Easy Decluttering Project: Medicine Cabinet

By CSC - February 24th, 2017

We may be known for custom closets, but at Closet & Storage Concepts, we’re here to help our clients make the most of their homes. This means helping them declutter and get organized in all areas of their lives!

Decluttering can be difficult. Wrap your head around the task at hand by decluttering in manageable chunks. If you’re struggling to declutter your home, consider starting with a simple task: try decluttering your medicine cabinet!

Find our top tips and items you can toss out today below.

Look for Expiration Dates

One of the best guides when decluttering a medicine cabinet is to look for expiration dates. This applies to makeup, skincare products, and medicine. If a product is expired or smells funky it is probably a sign that the product is past it’s prime. For expired prescription medication, set them aside so you can dispose of them safely.

If you don’t see any expiration dates, use your senses to help guide you. Nail polishes that are separating or dried up mascara can probably be tossed. Makeup and skincare products that use fresh or natural ingredients could be more susceptible to going bad.

Give Aways and Promotional Products

If you have a collection of makeup bags that you’ve received as a free gift, consider adding these to the giveaway pile. Many charity organizations and women’s shelters will often take untouched products. It’s a great way to declutter while doing some good!

Place unwanted items into giveaway bags to make it easy to transport. You could even consider giving away items to friends or family.

Don’t Forget Your Handbag

Don’t forget to look inside your handbag as you declutter as tubes of lip balm may be lurking inside. Toss any expired medication and makeup that you find.

Check In Your Shower and Around Your Sink

While you’re at it, check your shower and around your sink for other items that can be tossed. Look at your razor and if you don’t know the last time you replaced the blades, give it a toss. A dull razor can cause knicks, scratches, or an infection. Look around your sink and throw out your old toothbrush. This is crucial for maintaining good oral health as toothbrush bristles can become worn down and hold onto bacteria over time. Talk about a health hazard!

Consider Decanting

Sometimes items can benefit from being decanted. This helps make room in cabinets and on shelves. Moving products into smaller containers lets you ditch large and bulky containers without having to part with any remaining product. Using bottles and containers that look similar can help give the appearance of a more streamlined and luxurious bathroom.

You did it! You took the first step to decluttering your home. For customized home storage products or more organization ideas, give your local Closet & Storage Concepts location a call. Our design experts are ready to help you make the most of your home.

Organizing a Closet For the Child In Your Life

By - January 24th, 2017

Keeping kids’ rooms tidy and organized can feel like a full-time job. To them, cleaning their rooms seems like a never-ending task because of how hard it is to make sure everything is in the right place. If you’re ready to find a solution to this problem, contact your organizational experts at Closet & Storage Concepts to create a custom closet that works for you and your kids! Here are some tips to think about when you start planning their new closet.

Organized Closets for Children

Keep things within reach!

Young children need to be able to get what they need out of their closet without your help each time. Install lower shelves and racks for the things they use every day. Display their favorite toys and outfits within reach to them so they can always access it. Use the higher shelves to store off-season clothes or things they haven’t grown into yet.

 

Adjustable racks and shelves

If this closet is going to stick with them until they move out, you should definitely plan on making the interior pieces adjustable. As they grow, and as their wardrobes get larger, it is essential that their closet can adapt to fit what they use. Installing clothing racks and shelves that can adjust in height will ensure they aren’t out of reach when they are young or inconvenient to use when they are older.

 

Cubbies & open storage

There is a reason their first introduction to organizational skills is through cubbies at school. These provide a great way to store their items so when they do have to find something, it is not an infinite abyss of toys and clothes like a chest or dresser might be. Visibility is key with kids and open storage spaces will help them know where things go at the end of the day. They can sort toys and clothes into cubbies, while extra hooks on the backs of doors for jackets or wet towels will keep the clutter off the floor.

Closet Organization tips for kids

Label, label, label

By labeling bins and drawers with the appropriate title, it will be a breeze for them to put away whatever has collected on the ground. Teach them that everything has a home and be consistent and clear about where it all goes. Bins and baskets that they can take out of the closet will make clean up easier and with a simple label on the outside, they’ll know which to use.

 

Personalize it!

If you make an organizational space appeal to their interests, your kids will be more likely to get involved in maintaining it. With the right colors, bin designs, and layout, you can transform a plain closet into an interactive space that they’ll actually enjoy organizing. Try colorful trims that highlight the space and bins that fit into the color scheme. Using compatible colors will also make the space visually cleaner.

 

An organized closet system will teach them invaluable skills about how to clean and tidy a space. Cleaning their room won’t be an impossible chore, but something they do every day. The most important takeaway is that finding a solution to organize your child’s closet is not impossible. Contact us for a free in-home consultation and let us find the solution for you.

 

How to Prepare for Holiday Guests? Start With The Entryway

By CSC - October 19th, 2016

custom entryway organization system closet and storage conceptsThe holiday season is quickly approaching. With it comes valuable time spent with family and friends, delicious food, and possibly a bit of anxiety when it comes to preparing your home for guests.

There are usually a few places within every home that experience reoccurring clutter. For many families those places are the entryway, kitchen counters, and perhaps a living room coffee table. Inconveniently, these are also parts of the home that holiday guests are almost guaranteed to see.

As you prepare for the holidays don’t hide your clutter simply because it’s an easy solution. Now is as good a time as any to implement lasting storage and organization solutions. Here we’ll be focusing on the entryway, a part of the home notorious for accumulating weekly clutter. We encourage you to read on!

Why Is My Entryway Messy All The Time?

As its name suggests, the entryway is the entrance into a home. For many people this space signifies the formal start and end to their day. When you think about it, it’s not such a surprise that entryways are often messy. This place by the door is where we empty our hands after a long day. The home is a place of relaxation, and therefore dumping everything at the door as you walk inside can be a form of triumph. In most entryways one can find shoes, jackets, backpacks, keys, mail, and other knickknacks.

Organizing Your Entryway

Part of organizing your entryway successfully is thinking realistically. It’s reasonable that after a long day you’d prefer to leave everything at the door rather than put it carefully away in closets and cupboards. The key to entryway organization is capitalizing on the moment you enter your home. If you’re going to leave your jacket, shoes, bags, and mail at the door they need a place to go, and that place needs to be easy to access.

This is where a custom organization system from Closet and Storage Concepts can come in. Although some items left at an entryway are the same for everyone, we all have different preferences and eccentricities, which influence what we carry with us each day. Thus, a custom organization system that fits your habits can be extremely beneficial.

We recommend a combination of visible and hidden storage, as well as designated shelves and drawers for specific items. One of our designers can work with you to create an entryway storage system that is reflective of your needs. For instance, say you’d like to have a space for ingoing and outgoing mail, a hanger for your keys, or a drawer for cold weather gear. These are all elements that our designers can incorporate. We’ll also create a three-dimensional model of your custom storage system before we start building anything.

Here at Closet and Storage Concepts we look forward to helping you get organized for the holidays. We would love to create a built-in storage system for your family that will stay clean long after your holiday guests have departed. Call us today, we’re happy to help!

The Easy, No-Brainer Purge

By - July 22nd, 2016

Clean organized apartment

Do you feel like you’re buried under a pile of clothes, junk mail, or expired foods? Maybe you have overflowing drawers filled with makeup, medicine, or tools. Or maybe you’re looking to de-clutter. Purging is easy with this list; simply toss these items out!

  1. Expired Coupons. Put these into the recycling bin and start looking for other deals! There’s no reason to be keep unnecessary papers in your kitchen or home office. To tame the paper, be sure to go through your coupon piles at least every two weeks.
  2. Expired Food. Moldy milk and food can say hello to the trashcan or compost bin! Free up fridge space to make space for your favorite summer harvests and treats.
  3. Expired Medicine. Expired medicine can be harmful to your body. Be sure to pay attention to the expiration dates on medicine bottles and toss them should they be past their expiry date. For certain products, you may need to properly dispose of them at your local pharmacy.
  4. Expired makeup and skincare products. Notice a trend on this list? Using some expired makeup products can cause irritation or scarring to your skin. Be sure to note when you opened your products and toss items that have been opened past the recommended lifespan. Many cosmetic and skincare items will have a stamp with a jar icon and a number in it where you can find the expiration information. If the number says “12M”, the recommended lifespan of the product is 12 months (roughly a year).
  5. Take-out menus. Let’s be honest. You probably already know the menu backwards and forward for your favorite places. It’s time to clear out part of your kitchen drawer. Plus, many restaurants will have their menus online for you to browse.
  6. Broken items. Chipped mugs, plates, and glasses can be tossed. Or repurpose some of them as a water saucer for plants. For items that you’ve been meaning to replace or repair, but haven’t gotten around to for over 6 months, it may be time to say sayonara.
  7. Clothes that don’t fit. For items that no longer fit, or never quite fit right, just say goodbye to them and don’t think twice about it! These items don’t make you feel good, so you shouldn’t keep them around. Think about the space you could create for items that you love by getting rid of these pieces.
  8. Excessive cords. Have extra extension cords? Or maybe cords for your computer or entertainment center that you don’t need? Consider donating them and saying hello to a neater looking and more streamlined space. This also goes for electronics you no longer need.
  9. Coins. We know that many households can accumulate change and coins over the years. Clear up some space and get some money in your pocket. While we don’t recommend throwing them out, we do recommend converting them to bills and depositing them into your bank account.
  10. Procrastination. Throw procrastination out the door! It’s time to get focused and start checking off chores and home projects. Make a schedule to complete projects and set a timeline you can stick to. 

It’s time to get organized today! Get customized home storage ideas from the experts at Closet & Storage Concepts. Find a local designer here.

Easy Ways to Get a Clutter-Free Home Office

By - April 18th, 2016

Home office cabinets with wall bed

Is spring cleaning wearing down on you? Organize your home office in a flash by trying these easy tasks.

Create Work Zones

Take a cue from the kitchen, and apply it to your home office. As the kitchen has different stations for washing, prep work, cooking, and food storage, create a similar system in your office. A clear workspace for paying bills or running your home business, storage for supplies and tools, a notice board to keep your to-do list, and an area for reference guides or paperwork will help to create a space that maximizes functionality.

Control the Cords

In today’s modern age, cords have become an eyesore and a nuisance. Get them under control with proper storage. Lower cabinet units can help with this as they can conceal cords while creating shelving for the printer or computer tower. Affixing extension cords underneath your desk and bundling cords together are other popular options to keep cords under wraps. Alternatively, try Bluetooth or wireless keyboards and mouses to cut down on the number of cords in your home office. You’ll be able to stop the visual clutter to help foster productivity and creativity.

Paper Processes

Just one piece of paper can lead to havoc that can’t be tamed. Fix it by creating a system that streamlines the process and minimizes the paper. A letter sorter, or alternative method, to separate what needs immediate attention from other correspondence, can make catching up on bills and paperwork easier. Having a process to deal with paperwork will limit the haphazard piles and keep your office looking streamlined. To stop paper at the source, go green and enroll in paperless statements where possible.

Storage That Works

As experts in home storage and organization, we know what that proper office storage can make a huge difference in the functionality of a home. When analyzing your storage, you will also need to analyze your stuff. It’s a prime time to decide what supplies you actually need and use in your office from the junk that’s lying around. After you’ve narrowed down, or if you’ve already done this, consider your storage needs.

Determine how many file cabinets you’ll need as well as work space. If you need a place where you need to collaborate, you’ll likely want a larger desk space with clear areas for tools and paperwork. When putting supplies in your cabinets, shelves, or drawers, be sure to break up the space to prevent intermingling for a more organized space. Longing for office furniture that actually fits your space and gives a trustworthy image to your clients? Consider a custom home office from Closet and Storage Concepts. Our designers are prepared to find a design that fits all of your things, within your budget.

How to Visually Declutter a Room

By - March 1st, 2016

Modern living room by Emily Go Haus Go.

Although we usually bring you tips to declutter your home and create more storage space, visual clutter can negatively impact your home, too. That’s why our team has compiled some of the best tips to help you visually declutter your space! Read on for more information.

Take One Item Out

One of the easiest ways to make a room appear less busy is to remove one item. Even if you’ve pared down, thinking if there’s one more item you can take away can give a lighter look. This can be as easy as simply finding a new place to keep the item or by putting it into the donation pile. Finding a new place for the item can help you save money on unwanted purchases all while giving your space a new look!

Upgrade Storage

If you do decide to keep the item in storage, make sure it’s properly stored. If you’re no longer able to store all of your items and it’s causing visual clutter, consider this a sign to upgrade. Go with a built-in storage solution. You’ll be able to solve your storage problems in a practical and stylish way. Call in your local organizing professional today! From custom closets, kitchen pantries, or murphy beds – our team is ready to assist you.

Group Items

Narrow down groupings either by completing the steps above or simply by grouping items closer together. By making it obvious that you are grouping like-items, you may find that vignettes look better to the eye. If you haven’t grouped your items, consider doing so to give a streamlined look. Keeping similar items next to each other will make things look less hectic in your space.

Groupings can be done in a variety of ways, but the most common are by type and by color. With types you’ll want to keep books with books, plants with plants, and so on.

Clean!

Clutter comes in all shapes and sizes and dust is one of those culprits. Give your home a good clean. You may find that this simple solution is all that you need to give your space a refresh. Don’t be afraid to get into the tough nooks and crannies. Give your carpets a good shake and vacuum. For more time consuming cleaning projects, clear away countertops of clutter both the visual and physical. This includes small kitchen appliances, mountains of miscellaneous items on your nightstand, and of course, the junk mail.

Consider Colors and Patterns

While adding in different elements and patterns can help to make a room more lived-in, there’s a fine line before you go overboard. If you feel suffocated by the amount of patterns and textures in a room, take it down a notch by removing one of the patterns or colors. When thinking about colors, keeping the color count to three can be a good way to bring things to more tolerable viewing levels. Same goes with patterns; start off small and add things back in if you feel like it’s needed.

Give our designers a call today to seamlessly blend your storage systems with your existing décor for a clutter free space both physically and visually!

Want to Be Healthier? Start With Your Home

By - January 30th, 2016

Tips for a Healthier You and Happier Home

Peaceful organized bedroom.

If you’re looking to be healthier, one way to encourage change is by changing your environment. Start in your home. Here are some top tips from the team at Closet and Storage Concepts.

Pare Down

Take some time to declutter. Having an excess of belongings, especially unnecessary items, can be a both a visual and mental stressor. Pare down in key areas throughout your home to start implementing new habits for a healthier you. Think about it as creating a clean slate.

Start with a pantry purge. If you’re looking to lose weight and become more toned say goodbye to the junk food – stop temptation in the bud. While you’re at it, you can toss out your expired products. You’ll be one step closer to a healthier body and your kitchen pantry will be slimmer too.

Declutter throughout your home such as in the bathroom, in your wardrobe, or even your email! Taking the time to pare down can help relieve stress. With fewer items in your wardrobe it will be easier to make outfit decisions and cutting out the spam email means less time spent deleting them and more time with your kids.

Add Color

Give yourself added motivation each day with a jolt of color. Not only can a bright color impact our moods for the better, it can be a great way to revamp your home. It’s also an easy DIY weekend project. If you’re averse to incorporating color, try small batches of it such as with your office supplies. You can always push for more color later depending on your needs.

Add Plants

Much like adding color can boost our moods, adding a few plants can give some added energy. Plus, it’s a great natural way to help purify the air in your home. If you’re a bit scared that you’ll kill a plant, a cactus or succulent can be a great starter plant. Using hanging planters is a great way to try adding a plant without it taking up too much counter space.

Relaxation Destination

Sleep can be a big factor in reducing stress, lowering high blood pressure, and being more energized. Be sure to foster it in your home. Consider saying goodbye to the smartphone scrolling or browsing before bed and try reading a physical book or relaxing bath instead. Also ditch the caffeine at least 2 hours before bed. Be sure to use comforting linens and comforters to make staying asleep just as easy.

No matter what you’re looking to accomplish in the coming year, changing and improving your home can help you be happier and healthier. To stop the stress from your lack of storage, call your local Closet and Storage Concepts designer today. They’ll help you find a storage solution that works for your life.

Your Yearly Decluttering & Organizing Guide

By - January 16th, 2016

Modern workspace with digital calendarAt Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re in the business of helping you create a more organized life. Here’s how you can plan out your year for a more organized home and life.

January

Ease into organizing by starting small. Start with your junk drawer or your nightstand. With your junk drawer, clear out bad pens, broken rubber bands, or even the dried out glue. When tackling your nightstand say goodbye to receipts you don’t need, replace light bulbs with energy efficient ones, and get a holder to store your rings and jewelry. Whatever small area you choose to work on, use this task to work your way up to bigger projects.

February

Use February to focus in on your office. Stay focused by vowing to keep your Internet browsing habits to a minimum and make sure your office fosters productivity. Give the file cabinet a look through and shred items you don’t need. Take some time to gather the needed paperwork for your taxes as you clear out. This way you can get everything in ahead of schedule for an easier April. If you’re feeling up to it, see if there are solutions you can employ to hide the cords whether if it’s with simple cable ties, a DIY project, or something more elaborate and custom-built.

March

Get on the spring cleaning bandwagon early. Do a de-cluttering and clean up in each room of your home. Be sure to schedule multiple days for this so you don’t wear yourself thin. Multiple cleaning sessions ensure that every nook and cranny of your home receives attention, as you won’t be rushing.

April

If you feel like it’s been a constant state of de-cluttering, planning, and cleaning, it’s time to take a break – you’ve earned it. Just be sure as the month continues that everything is getting tucked away into their proper places so it’s easy to continue organizing and decluttering in May.

May

New movie blockbusters are on the way! Get your DVD and music collection organized. Donate old DVDs and records to make room for new favorites. Alternatively, ditch the discs all together and go digital. Slim down your entertainment center and use the space for family albums or books.
WalkIn Closet Narrow

June

We’re halfway through the year! As things warm up, take this month to pay attention to your closet. Do a swap out by storing winter clothes in the spare closet or under your bed and bringing in the summer clothes. If you know you haven’t worn an item from two winters past, it’s time for it to be donated. If you’re frustrated by the lack of space in your closet, it may be time to bring in an expert. A custom unit may be your best solution to maximize your space and make getting organized easier in the rest of the year.

July

With the school year over (for most kids), focus on your car. Vacuum up the crumbs that have accumulated and make sure your car is ready for your next beach or road trip. Outfit your car with dividers in your console and be sure to keep a few reusable bags in there for grocery runs.

August

It’s time to prepare for back to school season, and that includes your home! Really hone in on the kid areas such as your child’s bedroom or playroom. Make sure their bedroom sets them up for success. Whether it’s cleaning out the closet for a new uniform (my, they’ve grown!) or upgrading with a new workstation, leave nothing to chance.

September

With the new school year underway, dive into your schedule. Make sure both your digital and paper calendars are all squared away. Already know about birthday parties and bake sales you’ll be attending? Jot them down. After you’ve nailed a schedule and gotten your family back into the swing of things, be sure to take some time for yourself. The holiday season will be here before you know it!

October

GarageIt wouldn’t be surprising to see Christmas decorations already hitting stores, but resist the urge to get buy every item. Rather, focus your energy on the garage. Put away the beach toys until next summer and get your tools in order. Stock up on storage bins for the holiday decorations if yours are looking a little worse for wear. It’s the perfect time before the cold weather hits.

November

As things cool down, do another closet swap out. Head to your local thrift or charity shop to donate your items – it’s a great time to give back to the community. Focus on your spare room to make room for guests this holiday season, or transform your guest room into gift-wrapping central in preparation for the holidays.

December

At the start of December, consider getting your pantry in order. This way you can prepare for the baking and cooking session that often accompanies the holidays. Toss out expired spices and indulge in a little pantry organization session to get it back in working order. An organized pantry will make your holiday baking session that much easier.

We’re looking to a great year at Closet and Storage Concepts and we hope these tips can help you stay organized in 2016. Be sure to check back in for more monthly tips. When you’re ready to upgrade the storage in your home be sure to call in your local experts. From garage storage units to home offices to custom closets to murphy beds – we do it all. We look forward to working with you!
