When Your Home Is Organized, You’re Able To Find What You Need

Let’s say you’re a few days away from Christmas, and Aunt Jeanie is just about to get into town. You know that if she doesn’t see the kids wearing those oversized Christmas sweaters she gave them last year, she’s sure to have her feelings hurt. In most households, in can take hours trying to track down the things you’ve shoved into the back of a closet, out of sight and out of mind. In a well-organized home featuring innovative closet systems by Closet and Storage Concepts, you’ll have those sweaters out and on the kids before she even gets off the plane. The same goes for holiday decorations and home décor; the better designed your storage system is, the easier it will be to pull everything out when the holiday season rolls around.

You’ve Got to Hide Those Toys Somewhere

If your family is anything like ours, as soon as December comes around the kids are already poking around the house trying to find their hidden presents. It’s been a childhood tradition for as long as any of us can remember, and there’s nothing more disappointing than knowing your little one already knows that new bike is coming before the big day. One of the many benefits of a robust closet system is the sheer amount of space you have to tuck things away. We always extoll the virtues of being able to find everything as easily as possible, but there are also those times when having a developed storage system gives you even more options to keep things out of sight. Trying to keep Junior from discovering that new train set? With a custom Closet and Storage Concepts storage system, we bet you’ll be able to find plenty of places to stash away all your family’s gifts.

Holiday Dinners Just Got Easier

A perfectly designed pantry will not only allow you to handle all of your Thanksgiving foodstuffs, it also makes it easier to buy early and in bulk in order to be better prepared for the holiday season. If that’s not something to be thankful for, we don’t know what is!

Digging Through Your Pantry – Tips For Thanksgiving Food Drives

Here at Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re experts in all aspects of home storage solutions. From garage storage to innovative murphy beds, Closet and Storage Concepts has the experience necessary to craft the perfect solution for your family’s needs. Some of our favorite types of projects to work on are kitchen pantries; not only is the kitchen often the nexus of a home, but it can also be one of the most disorganized areas in the house. As we inch closer to Thanksgiving, it’s likely that many organizations in your area are beginning to focus on their yearly pantry food drive. For this post, we’re taking our love for pantry storage projects and combining it with the importance of holiday food drives. We’ve put together a list of a few rules when it comes to donating items typically stored in your pantry. Sometimes getting your home better organized can also lead to added benefits for your community, so read on to find out how you can clear out your pantry storage while helping neighbors in need.

Start By Pulling Out Extra Items

The easiest way to get started with a food drive is to look into your pantry and find the items you have extras of. Whether you bought 20 cans of lentils when they were on sale or simply never got around to trying out that new product, take a look at your pantry and pull out the items you can easily part with. If you start your food drive approach from this angle, you’ll likely be able to find numerous items you can easily part with. Not every family has the extra income to devote to charity, so if you’re in this position try to organize your pantry while also giving back to the community. Not only will you end up with a better storage system in your kitchen, you’ll also be able to do some good in your local community.

Make Sure To Stick With Nonperishables

Although your pantry can be filled with a number of different types of items, it is essential that you stick to nonperishable items when it comes to most food drives. Most local food banks tend to prefer canned food above all else, as these items have a much longer shelf life than their paper-packaged brethren. Many food drives won’t take products contained in glass jars, so make sure to contact your local organization to find out exactly what kind of items they’re looking for. This way, when you go through your pantry, you’ll know exactly what items you should be pulling.

Focus On Healthy Foods

We all have items in our pantries that satisfy our sweet tooth or junk food addiction, but when donating to a food drive you should really avoid these types of items. Many organizations prefer organic food, but if your pantry doesn’t include these types of products you should focus on single ingredient items such as canned beans or fruit. Dried pasta and rice are also always a great choice, and most disorganized pantries tend to have a plethora of forgotten dried foods. When going through your pantry, make sure to pull out items that are suitable for kids and parents, and always lean towards food with a healthy bent.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we know the importance of an organized pantry as well as a healthy and well-fed community. This holiday season, we encourage everyone out there to not only get their kitchen pantries better organized, but also to remember just how important it is to give back.

Three Projects For Getting Your Kitchen Organized

By csc-admin - July 15th, 2014

 

When it comes to home storage and organization, there’s one room that typically tends to fall into chaos more often than others: the kitchen. Most homeowners are painfully aware of the common problems found in the kitchen organized, whether it’s an overflowing utensil drawer or a pantry that looks like a grenade has gone off inside of it. At Closet and Storage Concepts, we specialize in providing solutions for these storage needs, so we’ve put together a list of some of the most effective techniques and strategies for keeping your kitchen in tip top shape. Read on to find out what you can do to get your kitchen organized and under control.

Install Some Corner Drawers

One thing we’ve noticed over the years when it comes to kitchen organization is that space is always at a premium. Due to the value of real estate in the kitchen, why is that most kitchen cabinet systems ignore the possibility of utilizing corner space? In the past, many homeowners had Lazy Susans installed in corner spots, but those systems tend to lead to more disorganization than they add. Luckily, some incredible cabinet companies are starting to introduce beautifully crafted corner shelving systems. Click here to get an idea of the way in which one company is changing how we view that extra space between walls.

Custom Pantries By Closet and Storage Concepts

Every homeowner dreams of their own uniquely designed pantry, as every family has their own habits in the kitchen. At Closet and Storage Concepts, we custom craft incredible solutions catered to your home’s needs. Is your pantry tight on space, and you’re just not able to stock up on everything your family needs? Closet and Storage Concepts has a storage design sure to get more bang for your buck. Trying to switch over to using more dried goods throughout the week? We’re sure to have a system that will make organizing as easy as one, two, three.

Install a Rolling Cabinet

When it comes to getting the most of your kitchen’s space, it’s all about maximization. One thing that can really help in this department is getting multiple uses out of a single item. In the same way Closet and Storage Concepts can set up a master closet for storing both clothing and general wares, so too can you install fixtures that offer multiple solutions. One such strategy is creating a roll out cabinet. As you can see in the above post, companies are now creating kitchen cabinets that roll out to become cutting boards and usable surfaces. If you’re looking for some extra surface space, this might be the solution for your kitchen.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re full of ideas on getting the most out of your space. If you’re looking to expand your storage capabilities, or need some advice on getting your home better organized, contact us today!
