Week in Review: The Year is Almost Over!

Dec 19, 2014

Only a few days left in 2014 and I’m racing to the finish! I’m feeling so good about the progress that I made this week and I’m glad that I’ve made the time in my schedule to tie up loose ends so I can be better prepared for 2015.  I told my friend Pam last night that I am like a car going 90 miles an hour at all times and I have a hard time slowing down.  Over the last week I’ve made more time for myself that normal so I can gradually go from 90 miles to 60 miles to 45 miles to 0 miles so I can fully enjoy the holidays. I hope that makes sense to you!

Kuzak's Closet Week or Professional Organizing

We haven’t had any available openings for new organizing clients since October of this year so it was great to squeeze in one big new client project before the year-end. This client is a very talented teacher and artist but her physical disability has caused her to get behind on the maintenance and systems in her existing craft studio.  I’m excited to be apart of the transformation and can’t wait to see the final results.  We have our second purging session today and then go back in January to install products and get the space organized, it’s going to be great. Her home is located just a few blocks from the beach in Santa Cruz, a town that we typically do not travel to but it’s been great to see the ocean and smell the sea air.

After our first session this Monday with our craft client we headed home with 14 hefty garbage bags full of arts and craft supplies.  I took them to RAFT, a resource center for teachers in the Silicon Valley area. They were so excited to receive all of the goodies and my client was happy for her unwanted items to find a new home. Continue Reading »

As you begin to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall I wanted to revisit some of those key tips that will help you usher in the cooler weather and prepare for the busy holiday season.

September is Emergency Preparedness Month which means it’s time to replenish your emergency kit! If you don’t have an emergency kit, now is the time to get started. In the past I have shared how-to kits for your car, your home, and your pet (read here). This year I want to focus on helping you create an overall Emergency Plan for your home. I am providing a basic printable list to get your emergency kit started and I am also sharing disaster-specific resources to help you customize a personal plan for your families’ geographical needs.

2 Organized Custom Closets with Before & Afters

Sep 14, 2014

I tackled this organizing project a few weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to put together this blog post featuring the closet before and afters.  I originally started this custom closet project during a relocation that we helped a family with in June.  After unpacking and organizing the kids’ closets I suggested that they replace the current system with a custom cabinet system from Valet. Both kids needed more storage and a system that they can grow into, plus the closets needed a luxury touch to match the style of the home.  You’ll see what I mean in the before and afters.

Kuzak's Closet Organizing Teen Closet with Before and Afters

When I help manage a custom closet project with Valet I work with the client to sort and purge the space.  I manage the prep process (pulling out the existing system, patching and painting, etc.), and then on installation day once the cabinets are installed I start my organizing magic. For this project I was hoping to have Taylor’s help but we’ve been so busy she had to manage a different project on the same day.  My entire team has been stretched thin lately, I’m hoping we can catch up soon!

This first closet belongs to a high school girl.  She is very active with sports and loves fashion so it was important to organize everything so it would be logical and visible at the same time.  Like many high school kids in Silicon Valley she has a crazy schedule and I know the closet won’t stay perfectly organized but I’m hoping she will make time each day to put things in their place.  She and I will work together in the future for maintenance and purging so the space can stay under control.
