Like the old saying goes, there are no small problems, just small solutions. Well…..that is not really how that old saying goes, but it does apply here. Many people will look at what they feel is a small space and then say that it is to small to do anything useful with it. Untrue. We have our own saying here at JO’s Cleaning & Organizing: “Move that new Space into that old Space”. What we mean by that statement is for you to look at the space you want to reorganize in a completely new light. The best way to get the most function out of any size space is to clean it out completely. Start with a clean slate, and then move that new space into that old space.
Clearing out a space completely, allows you to create something completely new. You are no longer strapped to a certain way of looking at organizing and storing items in that space, just because of a certain shelf in the center of that closet, or a storage dresser in that corner. Instead, work with the space you have. Create the most use from the space you have with creative ideas and functional equipment and shelving.
We have experienced a minimum of at least 40% additional space added to an existing closet or storage area by just using this thought and design process. That’s right……at least 40% more space from that existing space just by starting from scratch, creatively designing and organizing that space, and then using quality and functional organizing equipment and shelving. The investment in time, materials and manpower will well be worth it. How quickly will a few extra dollars spent on these items, pay themselves back after you gain an entire new room. You gain that room by moving clutter from one space, into that additional 40% space you gained in that new closet space.
None of this is just a sales pitch or dreams. We here at JO’s Cleaning & Organizing have seen this exact scenario take place, over and over again, for more then 25 years now. And it works every single time. It is something we have fine tuned and worked in cooperation with many different Organizers, as well as our own in house staff, to produce these results. We have researched and experimented with many different organizing products and shelving equipment, to get it down to what truly works and will last the rigors of heavy storage and time.
So do not look at what you may think to be a small storage space or closet and say…..”I cannot do anything with that”. Step back, clear out that old space and start a new space. Your next Home office desk maybe half inside your closet. Your next closet expansion project may not include any new construction what so ever. Just great organizing and design and quality organizing equipment and shelving. And that’s a FACT!
