Teen Closet Tranformation

The blog has been overtaken with estate sale previews over the last 8 weeks and I don’t want you to get the wrong idea.  We are still organizing over here!  Today I wanted to share a project that we worked on last week with one of the teens from the National Charity League.  Last November I spoke to her local chapter about my home organization business and the 6 steps I follow at each session. At the end I gave away a 4 hour bedroom organizing session and she was the winner.

Working with kids, especially teenage girls is one of my favorite organizing projects to work on.  It is such a great opportunity to help them transform their rooms and teach them valuable organizing skills that they can use for the rest of their lives!

We started the session with a quick consultation to learn more about Lauren’s organizing habits, lifestyle, and the pros and cons of her room setup.  She mentioned right away that her closet wasn’t working for her and after I opened the door I knew why.  She had a great custom system but it wasn’t being utilized for her current needs.  She has grown into such a wonderful young lady and her closet was full of clothes that didn’t fit anymore, books that she had outgrown, and misc. clutter that just didn’t belong.  My goal for the session was to help her closet grow up and match her age and sophistication.

We followed the 6 step organizing process that I spoke about at her National Charity League meeting.  Once we identified the project and the goals we started pulling everything out of the space and sorting it into piles.  All of the clothes were sorted on the bed, shoes and bags on the floor, school and craft supplies in the hallway.

The empty closet, what a beautiful sight!  Originally I wanted to swap the middle shelves with the hanging bars on the left but the sections weren’t the same width.  We came up with a plan for storage once everything was purged.

Speaking of purging, here is the pile that Lauren was able to let go of!  Typically I bag it up as we go but for this project I wanted her to be able to see the volume she was able to live without.  In the end we carted off 4 garbage bags of goodies for charity, what a great feeling!

I wanted her closet to look like a boutique so she would be motivated to maintain it.  She is an athlete so with a very busy schedule.  For school she dresses pretty casual but she has a nice collection of dresses for fancy occasions (most of which she has made).  We set up a shoe gallery in the middle shelves, pretty snazzy for a 15-year-old!

The right side of her closet was dedicated to memorabilia, fabric for sewing, craft supplies, school supplies, and travel bags.  I think creating zones like this also helps encourage maintenance.  Everything has a home so it is easy to find.

I even labeled the shelves to remind her put things back where they belong.  She is a pretty neat kid so I don’t think she’ll have any problems but her busy schedule might encourage her to get lazy about putting things away.  It happens to all of us!

Another side-by-side look, what a difference!

Working on this project reminded me of helping my sister reorganize her closet when we were kids.  I swear I have been in business since I was 8!  There is nothing like a fresh start and this closet sure looks great!

Lauren is a talented seamstress and made most of the dresses that you see on the top left.  I’m so jealous, I wish I could sew!

Before this session Lauren didn’t hang much up.  Most of her clothing was folded and hard to find.  We decided to hang her coats (that previously lived in a pile on her desk chair), sweaters, dresses and nicer tops.  I had velvet hangers with me, gotta love how nice they look!  So mature and sophisticated!

Lauren’s mom came home just in time for the reveal!  She couldn’t believe her eyes and wanted to get a picture of Lauren and I together with the closet, so fun!

This is the review that her mom put on the Kuzak’s Closet Facebook page…

“Amanda & Taylor helped my 15-year-old daughter to organize her room. She sews, has two machines, lots of school stuff, is a clothes hound and plays lacrosse. Lots of interests and a lot of disorganized stuff. Kuzak’s Closets taught her how to go through her belongings, purge unwanted items that are being donated, recycled or thrown away. Then they taught her how to put things away in a manner that will keep them organized and make her life more efficient and pleasant. It is beautiful. What a great lesson for a teen. I only wish i had been home to witness the whole process, but I am having my turn soon as they are now coming back to do the same with a lifetime of accumulated mess in our garage. Thanks for such a rewarding experience. Highly recommend!”

How nice is that?  Speaking to the girls at the NCL and working on this project was go great and reminded me of why I do what I do.

  6. As the laser (or light in the case of Intense
    Pulsed Light or IPL) passes over the skin it is absorbed by all the pigments in the skin and hair.

    The “selective” in the case of this treatment means that the lasers are more highly absorbed by some things than others.
    More importantly, swelling usually happens when the skin treated is exposed to the sun. Growth of sores on the taken care of patch of
    skin is yet another common side effects of
    BC Laser Hair Removal procedure. This particular procedure involves a controlled heat source on the area and
    weakens the root of the hair as the heat is attracted by the pigment of hair.This
    impairs the growth by killing the existing hair,
    but doesn’t stop future growth. This safe procedure involves holding a
    device against the skin, emitting a laser that delivers targeted heat
    energy to the follicles. How do you use an at-home laser hair removal device?
    No matter which laser or light-based device is used, the concept of how laser hair removal
    works is the same – selective photothermolysis.

  7. Oletko koskaan pelannut pakalla, joka on kasinon poistopakka? Jos olet, olet saattanut ihmetellä, miksi kaikista korteista on leikattu kulma pois tai kortit on reitetty. Syy on yksinkertainen, poistopakat merkataan siksi, ettei korttihuijari voi ujuttaa omia korttejaan peliin. Kolmas huijauspakka on siis merkattu pakka, jonka korttien selkäpuolella on hienoiset erot, joita tutkimalla näkee kortin arvon ja maan. Näin taikuri voi esimerkiksi ”nähdä kortin läpi” ja tietää sen oikein! Samoin korttihuijari voi petkuttaa kasinopelissä ja panostaa kun oma merkattu kortti jaetaan pöytään.

  8. This website provides access to cannabis products and information. According to provincial law, you must be 19 years of age or older to view or purchase items on this website. Recently, Newfoundland and Labrador began offering cannabis clones for those interested in making their thumbs just a little bit greener. The FDA is concerned that people may mistakenly believe that using CBD “can’t hurt.” The agency wants to be clear that we have seen only limited data about CBD’s safety and these data point to real risks that need to be considered. As part of the drug review and approval process for the prescription drug containing CBD, it was determined that the risks are outweighed by the benefits of the approved drug for the particular population for which it was intended. Consumer use of any CBD products should always be discussed with a healthcare provider. Consumers should be aware of the potential risks associated with using CBD products. Some of these can occur without your awareness, such as: https://wetwogypsies.blog/community/profile/brendafensterma Under the rules, people using cannabis for medical purposes must get a daily amount authorized by medical care practitioners – doctors, nurses and social workers – to either be bought from official retailers or grown personally. “Abuse of the medical purposes framework undermines the integrity of the system that many patients and health care practitioners rely on to access cannabis to address their medical needs,” Health Canada said in the draft document. Under the provincial Cannabis Control and Licensing Act, adults 19 years and older can grow up to four non-medical cannabis plants in their residence. Please visit AGLC.ca COVID19 for the latest updates – including information on in-person access to AGLC services. But the other reason? It has to do with the fact that the Canadian government doesn’t make it impossible to become licensed. Even after medical marijuana has become legalized, some governments make the process of getting licensed so difficult that it’s just not worth it. This isn’t the case for becoming a registered ACMPR grower.

  9. obviously like your website however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome
    to tell the truth on the other hand I’ll definitely come
    again again.

  10. The fourth season premiere of The Handmaid’s Tale vaulted the Hulu series to near the top of the Nielsen streaming charts. Netflix’s Shadow and Bone also picked up steam in its second week of release. Season four of The Handmaid’s Tale is set to launch at 9pm on Sunday 20 June on Channel 4. The series follows June’s bid to survive, to be reunited with her daughter and, eventually, to bring down Gilead. “‘Handmaid’s Tale’ looks forward into where we could end up with gender politics,” says Gadon. “‘Alias Grace’ looks back to where we came from. The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu) – 39 eps., 1.039B min. Sadly, as of February 2022, there is no confirmed date for when The Handmaid’s Tale will be back on our screens. A series gets an Average Tomatometer when at least 50 percent of its seasons have a score.
