Contain Yourself

Posted on July 9th, by Melanie

I will fully admit that I am a tad OCD when it comes to organization and cleanliness. I guess that is why I chose to clean out closets for a living 🙂 I believe everything has its place, and clutter drives me crazy. I wish I wasn’t so particular about organization, but it’s in my genes (thanks Dad!).

I did a jump for joy when I heard the Container Store was coming to KC. I used to shop CS when I lived in Chicago; it truly is an organizers dream. When the CS PR team asked me to come for a blogger preview, I of course accepted! I couldn’t wait to see the wall to wall organization tools in all their glory.

Closet Cleaning Extravaganza

Posted on August 13th, by Melanie

I have been MIA the past few days. Mostly I am just trying to play catch up and am getting the little guy ready for school that starts next week!

I had the BEST weekend in St.Louis. It was crazy, busy and exhausting but at the same time so much fun. I had a total of 3 closet consultations in a day and a half. I worked with 4 clients, all with their own sense of style. This brought about new challenges and a different point of view for each closet. When it was all said and done I was so happy with how everything turned out. St.Louis women are truly lovely! I hope to go back again soon!

Here are some shots of my work…

Before…

Lots of dry cleaning hangers and plastic bags. But TONS of hanging space…I would kill for that!
