Merry Christmas / Happy Hanukkah

It is that time again. It all seems to be a big Blur, but after the rushing, the waiting the hectic manuevering, there is that family time. The time when all the pains of the season pay off in wonderful family moments.

It does not matter if you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah,or whatever. Take some quality time and spend it with your family, friends and Loved ones. Life is so very short and we never know when that time will be up.

So forget about what is troubling you. Forget about what might be going on in the world, and just turn it all off, hug your best friends and be Happy you have them. A very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and the best of New years to you all.

IT’S TIME

It may not seem like the best time to be re-organizing things in the home. But……with much of the summer cloths going back into storage, the winter cloths coming out, the Holiday stuff being shifted around and what seems like chaos….it is the perfect time.

With so much of what we store and bring out on certain occasions or seasons, there is no better time to organize those areas we store these things in. 40% more space in each of these storage areas would do what for you? Ask yourself if even during this chaotic period, if adding 40% more space to your storage areas would not change the whole picture. Adding marked storage bins onto new storage shelving could add even more additional space for you needs.

There is really no better time then when all the “Stuff” is coming out, or going back into storage, then to properly organize it and store it correctly. Take advantage of what seems like chaos, and turn it into your organized dream. And add at least 40% more space to that closet, storage area or basement. Let’s see…..what will I do with more space? 🙂

ASK NATALIE FIRST

We made the top five most popular interviews with “ASK NATALIE FIRST”. We did this interview some time ago, and didn’t realize that it ran so well. We are very happy at the results we have received from Natalie’s interview. You can check out her web site and the interview at:   ASK NATALIE FIRST

PROJECT BUILD

We are very proud to have been a part of the Building Industry Association, and the Jewish Family Services in participating in the PROJECT BUILD program.

Project Build assists people in need, or who are Handi-capped in some way, and cannot adjust their homes to the new problems they face. By joining forces with people helpers and various building trades, people get to stay in their homes, even after an experience that requires their homes to be modified to accommodate their Handi-caps.

Our Favorite Closet storage system

We install and design many different types of SCHULTE closet storage systems. We have seen just about every combo and type of wire, wood and metal storage system used. But there is one that stands out for us.

The combination of wire shelving and stacked wire baskets is our personal favorite system. It is our most cost effective and in our opinion the most efficient and effective system.

This type of wire shelf/wire baskets system is very versatile and can be adjusted at anytime, to fit the ever changing needs of a storage closet area. This type of wire system also works great for the home office space storage or just about any use you may have. This IS our favorite system. Did I mention it is our most cost effective as well?

The HOME OFFICE

One of the fastest growing trends in business is the Home Office. Many business owners are switching from a leased commercial office space, to their own homes. It can be very efficient, cost savings and a big cut to the business overhead.

The Home Office can be an excellent switch for many business owners. BUT…..not set-up properly, or organized to meet your needs and the differences from a commercial office and now your home office, it can also become a nightmare.

We have put together a TIPS sheet to assist you in making this transition to an effective Home office space. Check out the PDF sheets here:  HOME OFFICE

Horizontal & Vertical Organizing

Everyone reacts and deals with organizing their home and office spaces differently. There is not just one way to keep thing organized. Each of us deal with fin ding things and storing thing away, in different ways.

Some people see things more in a vertical manner. They find it easier to look up, to find what they need. Others scan across an area to find things. No matter what way your brain organizes things, there a few things to keep in mind when organizing your home office or work space.

IT’S EASY!

We just finished another reach-in style, home closet. This is probably the most common kind of closet found in most of our homes. The following short Video shows just how quickly a complete redo of this style closet can go. And…..how east it is to gain 40% more storage space from that closet.
