Nikki is working with me, Elizabeth Tawney Gross, Certified Professional Organizer in Chronic Disorganization, and owner of Organizing For Everyday, LLC.  You can read the continuing story in the posts and learn along with Nikki as we organize her house room by room.

Nikki and Elizabeth, the Professional Organizer, have been sorting Nikki’s clothes.  They organized the hanging clothes and the shoes, and designed new shelving for the closet.  While they wait for Mark to get the shelves installed, they are addressing the heaps of clothes on the chair and the floor.

To come up with solutions to the mounds of clothes Elizabeth asked Nikki where she got undressed and where the dirty laundry went.  Nikki said she usually got dressed and undressed near the chair.  That explained the “half dirty” clothes draped over the chair.  They were waiting to be worn again.  When Elizabeth asked how often she actually wore the clothes again, Nikki told her that most of the time she couldn’t wear them again because they got so wrinkled heaped on the chair.  Elizabeth suggested that they hang a rack with hooks on the back of the door so the “half dirty” clothes could be hung up and remain ready to wear.

Nikki and Mark’s dirty clothes ended up on the floor because the only laundry hamper in the house was in the hall bathroom.  Elizabeth recommended that Nikki either put a hamper in the master bath or in the bedroom.  She advised Nikki to get one without a lid to make it even easier to get clothes in the hamper.  After all, who doesn’t enjoy shooting a two pointer with their dirty socks?

Nikki and Mark are working with Elizabeth to reclaim the master bedroom as a calm peaceful place to wake up to, and wind down from, their busy lives.
