Before I design a space, I think about how I need it to function. What is currently working? What is not working? How does it work with the flow of the house and where things tend to "land" on a day to day basis. I make a list of what I need to solve those problems and research product prices online. I often search the internet for storage and organization ideas. Once I have the budget to do it right, I go for it. A well thought out, beautiful design well worth the wait.
I have 3 kids and a huge house. I use the "Ten Minute Tidy" whenever I see things getting out of control. Just declare it and set the timer for 10 minutes. You will be amazed at what can be done with team work. Any more than 10 minutes and you loose them...so as soon as the bell rings, stop the cleaning and thank them for helping.
ICE CUBE JEWELRY TRAY
I love to use ice cube trays to divide and conquer my mountains of everyday jewelry. Generally, I will do one tray with gold accent earrings, rings, etc. and the other with silver. Each pair of earrings, rings, etc. gets their own, little "cubbie." The best part about this system is that the ice cube trays are stackable and leave a very small footprint!
I recently bought "freezer labels" from the Container Store. Buy some, they are great and very reasonable and usually not easy to find. Since it does not tell me on the box where I purchased it - and I know I will need more someday - I wrote "from Container Store" on the present box. For other items that I know I will want more of, like the glass storage containers I bought from the Container Store, I keep a photograph album with 4"x6" file cards in it with any product I have been satisfied with and the place I purchased it. I can easily find the information I need to purchase more or to give as a gift.
