It’s a new year and I am constantly reminded how much I love my job! Kuzak’s Closet is booming and I can’t wait to see where 2015 will take the company! With all of the exciting projects going on I am trying to find balance and continue to deliver my standard quality of service while delegating more and more duties to my staff. With the demand for services as high as it is I can only grow with the help of others.
January is always a busy month but this year we were booked out earlier than usual (starting last November). We’ve had 2 great estate sales and an estate liquidation along with dozens of organizing sessions. I am actually looking to expand my organizing staff so if you or someone you know if interested in a job please check out the job posting here.
Speaking of staffing, things have changed a bit with my current staff. Al De La Rosa, one of my estate sale specialist has decided to retire after 2 years with the company. We were all sad to see him go but happy for him to have more free time to pursue his passion and creativity at Alberto’s Garden Art. Jennalynn Sallings, a very familiar face in the cashier seat at our estate sales is back after a 6 month hiatus. It’s been great to have her enthusiasm and spunk back! Billy Save, my right hand man, had heart surgery in early December and much to my shock is already back at work. He still needs to take it easy but we are glad to have his smile and his hauling expertise back on the job.
Today I am looking back at the highlights from January. Organizing is my passion and I love to see before and afters, this year has already been full of them in both the home organizing services and the estate services. Thank you all for being apart of the journey that I am on!
I’ve been in so many kitchens and closets so far this year I can’t keep them straight. Taylor and I have been teaming up for most sessions so we can service more clients at a time. She has been a great partner in crime and has turned into a great professional organizer. Most days we have 2-3 projects going on so if I cannot manage something she picks up the pieces for me. I’m lucky to have her and hope that I don’t burn her out too much before we can hire some additional help. Continue Reading »
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 »
Another month down, 2 more to go before 2014 is here. Today I’m going to take my Halloween decorations down and put out some Thanksgiving cheer. Scary to think I’ll be putting up a Christmas tree in a few weeks, eek!
Today’s post is a review of the month of October. It’s always fun to look back at the projects I featured on the blog and on Instagram. It was a very exciting month for my business with a jammed schedule, I only had 3 days off the entire month.
November is already in full swing! This weekend’s estate sale was AMAZING and I have 2 more on the books for this month, one in Palo Alto and anther in Atherton. There are officially no more available appointments for organizing sessions this month. If you want to work with me before the holidays please contact me today for a December slot! Continue Reading »
October is here! I’m ready for sweaters and boots, some great tailgate food, and lots of fun organizing and estate projects this month.
At the end of each month I like to do a review of all of the activity that has been featured on the blog. It’s fun to look back to see what I was able to accomplish. Just in case you missed something, here are the highlights…
I turned an antique door into a rustic headboard for our master bedroom. I love how it turned out and I can’t wait to find some cute night stands to fix up to go with it.

I can’t believe it’s September! We had a much needed weekend around the house catching up on rest, food, and football! I typically work every weekend organizing a local estate sale so it was nice to have a little break.
This month has a lot of great football games, organizing projects, and estate sales on the calendar. I’m looking forward to decorating my house for fall and hopefully finishing up a small transformation in our master bedroom. Stay tuned! Before we move forward here is a quick look back at the highlights from August, let me know if you had any favorite posts! Continue Reading »
