Last week, I worked with one of my favorite families to create a fully functioning recreation section of their basement. As you can see from the picture, there were many categories of sports stuff (and a few non-related items :)) tangled up in this area of the basement.
This family is busy! Sporty! Active! They love to travel and even go for months at a time on sabbatical. So, time is valuable to them, as it is to all of us!
The whole family knew that if they needed ski, soccer, tennis, football, picnic, basketball, biking, or skating gear that they came to this area to look for it.
And, as you can see, it had POTENTIAL to really get better and make their lives easier saving them some precious time in the process!
We built wire shelving, and labeled clear tubs with categories for easy access. the tops are OFF the tubs and they pull out like drawers so that finding and putting away items is very easy for everyone. Not only is the non-related stuff gone, but the storage looks beautiful and most importantly, it will save this family tons of time locating and then returning their items to their respective spots.
Now, imagine applying this idea to your home office, your attic, your garage, and closets. What if organizing and creating accessible storage saved you 15 or even 30 minutes a day?
Wouldn’t you LOVE that?
What would YOU do with extra time?
Please leave me a comment below and let me know...
Until next week!

That basement looks so drastically different. Who wouldn't want to know where their stuff is for an easy grab and have more time as a result!!

The extra time I save looking for my things allows me to spend more time exploring the trails outside of my house!
