It’s time to treat your closet just like any other room in the house!

Step 1: Declutter

Using Discardia’s closet decluttering trick, you’ll find out what you actually wear and don’t

wear. Start by turning all of your hangers around so the hooks point towards you. Set a reminder in your phone for six months from the day you do this. When you wear something, put it back by hooking it the normal way. When that reminder goes off on your phone, any items on hangers pointing towards you should be discarded.

Step 2: Sorting/Organizing

Put your most used items at eye level, the lesser used items lower, and the least used items

in your closet up high. Purchase additional storage items for inside your closet. Hangers for suits and dresses, drawers for folded items, and boxes for odds and ends. Use Rubbermaid bins to store items from past seasons. Treat your closet like a small room. Keep it organized, keep it clean, just like you would your most used and occupied rooms of the house. A rolling cart with small storage boxes is an amazing option for those odds and ends.

Step 3: Finishing Touches

Add lights inside your closet so you can see and use what you’ve kept! For smaller spaces, remove doors and add curtains to your closet instead. Add hooks to the inner walls for items like purses, ties, or scarves.

If finding something to wear stresses you out every single morning, Jemson Cabinetry is a viable solution. Jemson will help you create an organized space to ease your mind, so you never feel like you “haven’t got a stitch to wear” again! Contact us today.

Not all of us can afford the luxury of a spacious kitchen, and some of us have intentionally chosen to live simply in smaller spaces. Either way, organizing and decorating a tiny kitchen can be difficult to master. Here are ten tips on how to organize the most important room of your house.

1. Add very high shelving above cabinets. Store bulk purchases in wire/wicker baskets on these cabinets, or cooking/baking pans you rarely use.

2. Add floating window shelves for plants, etc.

3. Declutter everything. Only store what you need. Instead of 8 water glasses, keep 2 in your cabinet, and put the rest in storage.

4. Add hooks to shelves. This is perfect for hanging colanders, kitchen shears, ladles, etc.

5. Use a short “over the door” shoe organizer on the inside of your cabinet door under the sink. You can store rubber gloves, extra sponges, and cleaning sprays inside.

6. Install a wall-mounted sink caddy.

7. Install small rods or racks on the side of countertops for extra hanging storage—you can hang small appliances like pizza cutters, handheld graters, tongs, spatulas, etc.

8. Use magnetic containers for spices to free up shelf space—store on your fridge instead.

9. Purchase an over-the-sink rack for paper towels and dishwashing supplies.

10. If your trashcan must be visible, buy a fun one with a pattern or bright color so it looks more like an accent or accessory rather than the place you toss your food scraps.

Jemson Cabinetry will bring you the expertise you need for the kitchen of your dreams—no matter what the size!
