Make your kitchen peaceful and functional

Organize My Home


If the kitchen is the heart of your home, then making it an inviting, comfortable space that functions well should be a priority. But how? What can you do to make it more peaceful? How do you make it function more efficiently? Here are a few tips that can help:


1) Get rid of the clutter. Clutter creates visual confusion. Go through everything in your kitchen and decide whether you use it and love it. If it doesn’t meet these criteria, it’s clutter! You may find a dish set you don’t use anymore, glasses that don’t match, duplicate cooking utensils, or small appliances that were a good idea at the time.

Closet organizing tips and products from my Fox 5 Good Day Atlanta interview (Feb. 24, 2012)

I had a great time on Good Day Atlanta (Fox 5) today! The staff and anchors were so nice. Anchor Buck Lanford interviewed me about organizing your closet as part of their Get Organized Week series. They were most impressed with the Cap Rack, which can hold about 16 baseball caps or golf visors.


My philosophy about closets that I shared:  Your morning closet experience can be great or chaotic. Getting more organized helps set a better tone for the day.

Moms: Zoom around the room

Posted on Friday, May, 6th, 2011 at 12:19 AM   (No comments)

Happy Mother’s Day, moms! I have a lot of moms as clients. What I always tell them? We’re not going for perfection, but we do want “homes” for every item. There needs to be established places, or “homes,” for shoes, backpacks, keys, briefcases, purses, toys, clothes, gadgets, items to return to the store, etc.


Spending the time to assign homes simplifies your day. How? At the end of the day, maybe after dinner, you can take 20 minutes and zoom around each room putting items back in their homes. Since there are no decisions to make, it’s mindless and easy. And, of course, get your family involved whenever possible.

Top 5 places to organize in your home

Face the day with peace of mind and confidence by organizing these daily-use spaces in your home.

1) Kitchen — It’s the heart of the home and usually where everything lands when it comes in the door. If the kitchen is in chaos due to mail, school bags and recent purchases, it can add stress to your day and be a barrier to family meal time.

2) Home Office — Win the battle against paper and develop systems for handling paperwork and mail. If you have a home-based business, you want an orderly, professional-looking office so that you can focus on your business. Being organized in this space means an easy-to-use filing system and a space that you enjoy being in.

Throw away more

They say the size of your trash can is directly related to how much you are willing to throw out. Go bigger. If you have an itty, bitty trash can by your desk, get a bigger one. And, if you handle your mail in other rooms, like the family room, keep a trash can in there, too!

Have you worn it this season?

If you go an entire season without wearing that great shirt or perfect pants, then maybe you don’t love them as much as you thought. How do you remember if you wore the items? Turn the hangers away from you at the start of the season. When you wear the item, turn the hanger back to normal.
