Getting organized can be overwhelming. Especially when that involves an entire family and all of their belongings. Where and how do you store all of the everyday items like clothing, sports gear, toys, backpacks and more? And how do you even get started? The answer is simple. You have to start with a direction in mind, which means you need a clear set of defined goals. Which areas of your home are the most troublesome? Which have the most need for organization and which will have the most impact on your daily life, once they are more functional? Giving this topic proper thought will allow you to prioritize and make a plan of action. Here is just one of the latest success stories from one of our clients who did just that.

That is until they met Jill from The Closet Works, who started the process of turning their vision into a reality.
