Organize for $1?
I know I have not touched base with you in some time and I truly apologize. I hope you can forgive me. I have been so busy that I had to put my business on hold until things settled down a bit.
In April 2017, I moved from Philadelphia, PA the place I was born and raised to Dallas, GA. It was a great experience and I learned a lot as it relates to moving 800 miles. In another blog post, I will share a few tips on what I did to make the process easier.
Today, I want to share a few quick tips on organizing on a budget. I recently transformed a messy linen/hallway closet, into an organized functional space (see pics below). I want to let you know that organizing does not have to be expensive. I pride myself on helping clients pay the least amount of money to achieve the most organized space. Below are a few tips to achieve the organized space you need.
1. Prior to shopping, assess your needs; if you don't, you run the risk of purchasing more than what you need and that can be costly. Measure your space if necessary.
2. Determine your budget.
3. Start with the Dollar Tree - Everything you see was purchased at the Dollar Tree for a total of $16.00. There were 3 bins leftover for future use and this closet can handle three more storage bins if necessary.
Note** The Dollar Tree can be enticing. You can purchase A LOT for only $1.00, but $1.00 can quickly add up to $20, $40, $60 or more. Therefore, going in with a list and a clear plan can help avoid overspending.
If you need assistance organizing your space on a budget, I’d be happy to help.
