When I saw the photos that our marketing gal Monica pulled for this month’s “day in the life” post I had to do a double take. It’s hard to believe that we squeezed all of these events in the month of September. It is a shorter month you know, with only 30 days in total. I guess it’s fair to say that we were able to maximize each and every one of them!
During September estate projects took the main stage. We organized a total of SEVEN estate sales and liquidations. Between regular sale days and frequent flash sales there was a stretch when I saw a handful of our estate shoppers 7 days in a row, crazy! I think those 7 days were also the hottest we have had in recent months. The temps were in the 90’s and inside some of our estate homes it felt like 120 degrees. My team consumed 20 cases of water and 10 cases of our go-to fizzy treat Refreshe. Don’t laugh, it is sparkling water that comes in a can and you can find it at Safeway – we LOVE it!

The dog days of summer, pun intended, are coming to an end! With kids going back to class and of course doggie parents vamping up for the busy holiday months to come, the pooches in our lives can also experience some big changes for the “back-to-school” season. Having a handful of doggies as part of the Kuzak’s Closet family, I have rounded up three tips on how to help ease in the pups this back-to-school season.

I snapped this picture of Taylor on Sunday while we were cleaning up the Atherton estate sale and it totally cracks me up. I feel like this picture truly illustrates how I feel right now…
I just wish I could take a nap for about a week! I’m sure everyone on my team feels the same way. We’ve all been going non-stop and we have no choice but to adjust to this pace as the new normal. Just when I think we can’t get any busier we do and we adapt to it.
The Atherton estate sale couldn’t have gone any better. It was so well organized and staffed, I look at it as a true accomplishment of how far my estate business has grown and developed. Kuzak’s Closet really is the best company in silicon valley to handle large projects like this and I am so proud of that! Continue Reading »
Hey Hey! I haven’t been the best blogger this week so I thought I’d give you a quick recap of what I’ve been up to lately.
Last week this article was published about Kuzak’s Closet in the local Los Altos newspaper. It was a great little writeup about our services and my recent blog award. It was nice to hear from so many of my clients and estate sale shoppers that saw it and called me or emailed me to offer congratulations. Some of my shoppers even cut it out and brought it to me, how nice! I love my California community!
We have a relatively new craft shop in Los Altos called The Makery. My friend Monica and I stopped in for some craft inspiration last week and introduced ourselves. I’m hoping to partner up with them for an organizing or estate DIY event this summer, I’ll keep you posted.

Just a quick note to say Happy Friday! I hope you have adjusted to daylight savings time! Harper and I have taken advantage of the extra hour of daylight this week with a long walk each night after work. Last night we met my friend Lori downtown and walked in the hills of Los Altos. Harper loved the change of scenery. Here is a shot of her snuggled in her car seat on the way home. Gotta love that smile!
December was another great month for Kuzak’s Closet and I am looking forward to popping open a bottle of champagne, saying thank you to 2013 and toasting a fantastic New Year! This month was busier than anticipated and today’s post is a recap of some of my December projects; a speaking engagement, pictures from my visit home to Michigan, Holiday Decor Week featuring guest bloggers, an answer to a readers’ organizing question, two estate sales, the launch of our Meet the Team page and more!
Here’s to a festive, productive and organized New Year! Continue Reading »
Where did November go? Thanksgiving has passed and we’re plowing full-force into the December holiday season. Orange and brown hues have disappeared from the shelves at my local stores and been replaced with an explosion of red’s and green’s. I love it!
Today’s post is a review of the super busy month of November. This month has really shown the diversity of the projects that my team at Kuzak’s Closet are tackling; great closet and garage organization projects, a full house relocation and un-pack, estate inventory, several estate sales and liquidations, DIY events, a book release and so much more!!
December is looking pretty packed but I am taking some time to visit family, which will be fantastic and I am looking forward to a break. We managed to squeeze two estate sales into December so be on the lookout for those updates and I am bringing back the Holiday Decor Week from last year that was so much fun. I love to see everyone’s different decorations and hear about the holiday traditions of my family and friends. Continue Reading »
