Today was an extremely productive one. A wonderful client just moved into a new home, and the basement was becoming the “catch-all” for anything not being used everywhere else.
The first thing I did was clear the area being organized, and just start over. I set up 3 6ft metal, adjustable shelf units (approx $50 each), and begin bringing items back in. I custom build each shelf once that row of containers have been placed.
I then categorized the holiday decorations together, then memorabilia next, and finally archive files. In the end nothing was on the floor except the largest bins.
In the end my client has full access to all categories, and room to walk into the room. She can now concentrate on merchandising the living spaces; the fun part!:)
