I just got my latest Stitch Fix box and what great timing with summer right around the corner! If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix already, it is a personalized shopping service, where an expert stylist hand picks and ships five clothing items to your home, including accessories, based on a style file profile that is defined by your individual taste, budget and lifestyle.

It has been a while since I have done Stitch Fix Reader’s Style Pick post, so I am really looking forward to hearing what you think about my most recent box pieces. Continue Reading »
When I’m asked about my job I always tell people that I own a business called Kuzak’s Closet but it wasn’t until I was sitting across from my business expert Tari during business planning meeting going over budgets did I really believe it.

I’m so thankful to have professional development opportunities that push me beyond what my daily experiences can. Just when I think I’ve got Kuzak’s Closet figured out it continues to grow and I need to adjust to keep up.
Aside from professional development the month of April was also filled with organizing sessions. Year after year it is one of my favorite months because so many of my clients have us back for maintenance sessions to get them and track and new clients contact us to give them the fresh slate they’ve been craving. Below is one of the before and afters from the month. Tammy and I purged and organized this teenage bedroom in 6 hours, it was such a blast. Continue Reading »
