I am laying on my couch writing this post and it feels good to chill out after another busy week. Kuzak’s Closet had another really busy week organizing, you probably saw my truck somewhere in Silicon Valley! My assistant Matt worked with me during most sessions which allowed my to finish 2 large projects in record time, gotta love that. I can’t get over how much help it is to have someone load and unload my truck, help with sorting, shop for products, and move furniture.
On Monday I spent the morning conducting organizing consultations with new clients. This is something I enjoy doing and I hope to give all of my potential clients an “ah-ha” moment to help motivate them to clear the clutter. In the afternoon I hit Costco to pick up supplies. I buy my clear medium size bins, clear shoe boxes, garbage bags, Clorox wipes, and velvet hangers there. I stock up a few times per month (depending on the projects) so I can save time during the week. My truck has a large back seat so I always have a small stock pile with me and clients love it.
On Tuesday Matt and I helped my client unpack and organize his new house. I helped this client move last summer so I was very familiar with his preferences and his stuff. We started working at 9am and left with a truck load for Goodwill at 7pm. It was a long day but totally worth it. We were able to unpack and organize the master bedroom and closet, master bathroom, kids bathroom, and garage. My client wasn’t home during the session so it was fun to surprise him with all of the progress we made. I snapped some after photos with my phone of this cute reading nook in the master bedroom, I love the mirror.
And the master closet. It is a walk in with bars on both sides. He thought he would need to have clothes in 3 closets in the house but after I edited his wardrobe (based on guidelines we set before the session) I was able to get everything into one. I always advise clients to try to keep all of their clothes in one closet to curb them from overbuying and to help them get dressed faster.
I labeled everything so that everyone in the house can find what they need and easily put things away. I attached clear plates with labels on the baskets with Velcro, pretty nifty!
Matt met me at my client’s and I had him build some furniture from Ikea while I sorted and unpacked toys with my client from her recent move. We were able to reuse these cute metal bins from Serena and Lily in the play area. Now I just need to be on the lookout for a cute play table for the space.
Action shot of Matt putting together a bed, he has much more patience that I do when it comes to reading directions. I just look at the pictures which never works!
Well, that was my week so far. Today I am going to be working on eBay from home and getting my house ready for a visit from my mom and sister this weekend. This is Ashlie’s first trip out here so we are going to have lots of fun. I have a guest room already but I needed to convert my office into another guest room so I made some changes. I have been wanted to have an eBay center in my garage for awhile so having the motivation really helped. I can’t show you my inventory because I don’t want any crazy stalkers hunting me down but here is a peek and what I have going on out there so far…
Today is the Olympic Opening Ceremony and I can’t wait! We didn’t have a television during the last Olympics so we really missed out so for tonight’s ceremony I splurged on this special edition Chandon champagne in a red, white, and blue bottle. Go team USA!
