How To Organise Your Home Like A Pro

appearance by Lucie Fink.
September always feels like a time of new beginnings: it’s the end of the hot summer, it’s time to refresh our wardrobes for fall, and for all the students out there, it's back to school time. This week I challenged myself to “5 Days of Organisation” so I could truly focus on reorganising my life and getting a fresh start for the new season ahead.
I brought in Jamie and Fillip Hord, the husband and wife duo from the professional home organisation company, Horderly , to show them my apartment and to create a plan for how to best re-organise my space. Monday was all about understanding the problem areas, and on Tuesday the real dirty work began. We started with the closets. Step one is the editing process: pulling out every last thing you own and paring down.

On Wednesday we began reorganising in the most efficient way possible. We purchased hanger dividers, new drawer systems, shoe racks and more. On Thursday we overhauled the entire bathroom, and on Friday we focused on the in-home office space.
The transformation was truly remarkable. I went from owning far too many items and feeling like my space was exploding with belongings, to having neat and orderly shelves containing only what I need and truly use.
