ASK AN EXPERT: Organizing Your Stockroom for Peak Efficiency

PROBLEM: HOW DO I ORGANIZE MY STORAGE CLOSET/STOCKROOM FOR MY BUSINESS SUPPLIES?

I run a home-based business that involves selling product I create. I keep all the supplies I need to create my product in the closet in my office. I also store shipping supplies, gift wrap, art supplies, and empty boxes from my technology (keyboard box, iPad box etc.).

THE PROBLEM: HOW DO I DECLUTTER MY MAKEUP DRAWER?

“I recently renovated my bathroom, and it looks great and I really love it except for my makeup drawers.

Help is on its way! Free Professional Organizing

11 months and counting! Amid the stay-at-home orders and social distancing, we are all trying to maintain some sense of “normal”. We have had to transform dining rooms into virtual classrooms or workspaces, turn our bedrooms into meditation and “de-stress” spaces, our living rooms into playrooms.

Homes are no longer just places to relax and recharge, they are community centres, safe spaces, gyms, school rooms, art studios, and offices. There is a deep connection between an organized space and our mental health. And the current global health […]
