Envision Yourself Organized

Creative scarf storage – do you need to see the “before” picture?

One of the biggest challenges people face in getting organized is being able to envision the possibilities for a cluttered space.  It can be hard to picture a clear, organized space without holding onto unrealistic ideas from lifestyle magazines that seem to imply all your stuff magically disappears when you’re organized.

Remember, organization is primarily about functionality, not neatness. Neatness is often a byproduct of the organizing process.  Clutter is banished when you create conscious and appropriate homes for the items that support your life.  The end result is a clearer space that is pleasing to view.

For your inspiration, here are some before/after photos that show what real life organizing can look like!
