Summer camp is a big thing for kids in Houston and all over and lately I have been helping clients get their kids organized for summer camp. Right now, if you book an organizing session with me you get one of the summer camp items pictured above free until I run out. Here is summer camp organization tips & summer camp packing list posts I wrote last year. How do you prepare to get organized for summer camp?

Made in the USA + Eco: Lindsey Leigh Jewelry Cleaner

I am constantly looking for recommendations for concierge & professional organizing clients and I first heard of this jewelry cleaner when it was recommended by several people on Instagram. When I am organizing for clients I often get asked to clean jewelry, so I was happy to hear about this product from a local Houston jeweler. Here are some things I like about it:

1. It is made in the USA
2. It's 100% biodegradable
3. Lindsey Leigh is based in Houston, TX
4. It works great!

Do you have a favorite jewelry cleaner?

Houston Professional Organizer // Pantry Organization

As a professional organizer you have to constantly get creative with small spaces. This client moved into a new apartment in Houston with no pantry and I converted the coat closet into a pantry for them. We used an over the door organizer, a metal shelf, oxo containers, white bins, a can riser, and montauk bins with label clips. Are you in Houston and have an apartment you need help with? I would love to help you get it organized.

Made in the USA: Boogie Wipes

Being a concierge in Houston I research a ton of products on behalf of clients and my clients are also full of great resources. Since I work with so many different moms, I get told all about kid products pretty regularly. One of my clients told me about Boogie Wipes and how they help with snotty noses, colds, sinuses, etc. Their website states that they are made with saline that is a mineral naturally occurring in the earth. I love that they are made in the USA.

Have you used them? Do you love them?

Houston Organizer // Client EaDo Get it Done: Closet Organization Before & After

I started this professional organizing project last year and we worked in different parts of the home to help them get organized and do what worked best for them. The transition in this closet organization project worked great. Here are some things that we did. 
  1. I sorted all items. 
  2. Folded clothes in the drawers.
  3. Sorted hanging items. They choose to use the hangers they already had.
  4. Added purse shapers and a clutch holder.
  5. Took all shoes out of their boxes and added clear boxes.
  6. Then I organized everything else!
