Joining me today is Leigh Achenbach, founder of Suddenly Simple Organizing in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
I invited Leigh on TOL to talk about storage spaces-specifically Garages, Attics and/or Basements. For folks living in a house, you probably have at least one of these areas that requires ongoing maintenance to keep from becoming a cluttered mess. If you live in an apartment you may have a storage space somewhere in your building where you keep seasonal or large items.
Without the right systems these spaces can quickly become a dumping ground.
During our conversation Leigh shares some practical and SIMPLE strategies to keep these spaces functional and organized.
Some things we talked about:
- The many uses for garages, attics, and/or basements
- How many people are unable to park cars inside their garage
- Why these larger spaces are so overwhelming to declutter and get organized
- Common pain points on why folks struggle to keep organized long term
- Why she likes to work in “macro-categories”
So many people fall into the trap of forgetting where they put something, or if they even have it. Leigh shares some of her favorite products, and tips to maximize space and find what you need.
