Small Space 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!

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

Before you finish Cleaning Up

The Holidays are done, there are many displaced things through out the house and/or home Office. You stand and look at all of this in dread. But it does not have to be that way. This is a GREAT opportunity to start off the New Year in a more organized and productive way.

Step back for a moment and take some hard looks at what needs to be returned to their storage areas or put away until next year, or what has been disturbed by all the frantic holiday activities. Then…..before you just return things to where they were or find new places to hide things, maybe it would be better to pull more of the stuff out and start a new way.

Examine closely how you have been using your storage spaces and possible home office. It could very well be more advantageous to remove more items, reorganized, set up better storage and then put it all away. Turn what may look like a mess of un-organization, into a new way for the New Year. This is a great opportunity to do just that.
