Tag Archives: Cleaning & Organizing


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!

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?


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

Spring is that time when it is out with the old, and in with the new. It’s that time to start things fresh and freshen up things old. A “PURGE CLEANING” is the perfect way to to this. JO’s Cleaning & Organizing has specific blocks of detailed work set-up, just for that Spring cleaning-PURGE.

Take a good look around and then give JO a call and she will come out and discuss some options for putting that Home office, basement, bedrooms or Garage in order, while clearing out those un-needed items. This is a specialty of ours, and we have much experience at assisting our clients on making these hard decisions when it comes to clearing out that clutter and completely opening up a room or storage area.

HOMEPRENEUERS the Home office-Business

The month of March will mark the return of our “Tip of the Month” series. This month we will be focused on the Home office space. This is a huge growing area in the world. Because of the many economical changes we have seen Internationally, the focus on operating overhead and a more hands-on approach for the small business owner is gaining a large following.

Take a good look at the report and statistics in the PDF download provided here. You will be truly amazed at what is going on in the small and medium size business world. It is the small business that makes most of the economy run here in the USA and the world. Having a Home office not only keeps the small business owner closely connected to his or her growing business, but allows for many more options that the separate office building did not provide. You will be impressed at some of the statistics in this report. I hope this will be helpful to all my fellow small & medium size business owners. It sure impressed me.                        Jo Golda
