The Means May be Different, but the Result Is the Same

Kelly's Closet BEFOREHere’s a perfect example of how two disparate types accomplish the same goal of readying the front hall closet for the winter. When I organized my parent’s front hall closet, it took me, an Organic Freedom (NFP), up to three weeks on and off, whereas my sister knocked the chore off in an afternoon.

Divide and Conquer

I'm certain we've already used this title because it's so true throughout life, especially when it comes to organization. Even more so for closet organization. I've just attacked my folks' front hall closet as we ready ourselves for winter in Cleveland and cohabitating with two retirees and a young family (as I continue to recover my health after major surgery earlier this year.)

No. More. Mismatched. Hangers!

Ah Mommy Dearest and her hatred of wire hangers. We don't hate wire hangers. They're matching at least, and unless you have a ladies' maid or valet, then who is going to swap out those wire drycleaning hangers for more solid stuff? Yeah, not me either.

So whenever the cold season is upon you, take the time to go through the abyss that is often known as the front hall closet before it threatens to topple down upon you in a sea of scarves and mittens from the 70s.

Shanah Tovah! 

Happy New Year to our Jewish readers!

One of the perks of being part of a multi-cultural family as well as professional organizers is that we both have subscriptions in our e-calendars for Jewish, Christian, Chinese and Cleveland Browns calendars and therefore know about all sorts of holidays. Boxing Day, anyone? But the real reason there's no PixieTip today is that my kids had the first day of Rosh Hashanah off yesterday, so I didn’t have my usual "me" time that school and the baby’s nap provides. But next Thursday I will have my "me" time and will be writing about Fall Cleaning. That’s right, Pixies like to shake things up and that means “Spring” cleaning in the Fall.
