That’s a Wrap on My First “Clear the Clutter Bootcamp!”

I just finished my organizing class – the “Clear the Clutter” bootcamp – and I couldn’t be more proud of the participants.  They each persevered through four weekly challenges, and the results are fantastic!  I was thrilled to hear so many positive comments from the group:

“[The Bootcamp] was great! It really set in motion big changes in our house.”

“I liked the group inspiration, fun atmosphere, and Sara’s happy personality & ‘can-do’ attitude, and the step-by-step challenges and a schedule for what to do.”

“Gave me focused time to declutter & reorganize.”

We kicked things off with my “Clear the Clutter” talk:

“I liked how we talked through the different types of clutter.”

Another participant learned “how keeping unused stuff costs us.”

Here are some of my favorite transformations:

The Junk Drawer

You might think than an interior designer and organizer like me might not be a fan of junk drawers. If so, you’re wrong! I’m a firm believer in having a junk drawer; I just think it should be organized.  This participant added some basic bins so now everything has a place. And she even lined the drawer with paper to make it look prettier.  Which drawer would you rather open?

Introducing my “Clear the Clutter Bootcamp!”

Before we know it, the final school bell will ring, and the kids will be on summer break.  Scary, right? This means now is the perfect time to tackle any remaining spring cleaning projects, and prep your home for the changing needs that come with the summer season.

In addition to my usual organizing and design services, I’m excited to launch a new program called “Clear the Clutter Bootcamp.”

Yes, a de-cluttering bootcamp. You know how you sign up for those fitness bootcamps to whip yourself into shape in a short amount of time? Well, this bootcamp is designed to do the same thing, only for your house. And let’s face it, getting our house into shape can be as daunting as getting ourselves into shape. We all have our trouble spots.

Take the junk drawer, for instance. Which one of these would you rather look at every day? What if you could get from this “before” to the “after,” not only in your junk drawer, but throughout your home?

Putting Family Into the Family Home

My clients bought this home as a new build years ago, but after adding three kids to the family, they found themselves wondering if they’d outgrown it. Plus, it was feeling a little dated. They were considering a major re-model to add space, but before they made such a big decision, I helped them think through how to make the current home work better for them.

Client Profile: Infusing Personality into a New Construction Home

Did someone say new paint colors, kids’ rooms, and organization?  This project had my name written all over it. My clients – a family of four, including two young kids – had purchased a new construction home that needed some personal touches to make it feel more like home.

Before I got there, they expanded a main floor bedroom by taking over unused overhang space the garage. The new space would become a playroom, which meant they could take back the family room.  –> Sidenote: this was a brilliant idea!  It’s always, always a good idea to look for unused space in your home and take advantage of it.

Now on to the fun part.  The project goals were to:

  1. Re-claim the family room as an adult & family space.
  2. Create a bright, sunny play space for the kids.
  3. Add color, style and organization to the kids’ bedrooms.

Let’s see how we did…

1. Family Room

The result is a warm, luxurious family room that everyone can enjoy. We added two gorgeous, custom couches to accommodate the whole family for movie nights, or friends while entertaining.  And did you notice? There isn’t a toy in sight!
