WRITTEN AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY MEG HOMICZ, THE REVIVED HOME
In the height of Covid, I decided to take a leap of faith and start my own home organizing company, The Revived Home. I know, it sounds crazy; who decides to start an in-home business during a pandemic? Like many families, as we navigated the new pandemic normal, all I could see was the constant chaos of having a family of four and two dogs under one roof. As I began to simplify and organize my own home, it was evident that the transformation brought an ease to our life that we didn’t have before. I knew it was time to start helping others do the same. There are incredible benefits of home organization. Having an organized house fosters efficiency, decreases stress and can even help with your budget. In the past year I have helped dozens of clients create a sense of peace and breathing room in their home. It’s truly about creating systems that are aesthetically pleasing, functional, and easy to maintain. There is nothing better than making another family’s life a little easier!
My organizational work will be featured in Kodiak Construction’s beautiful showcase home in Mulberry Estates in October. Come by and check us out, and in the meantime, try these organizational tips we used …on your home!
If you’re new to organizing don’t overwhelm yourself. A “junk drawer” is a great place to begin.
I cannot stress this enough. It’s not fun to find out that the products don’t work in the space.
Organizing is an investment in your home. It may cost some money up front but then you have a system in place.
When you’re organizing, always group like with like items.
It visually breaks up your space and offers dimension.
Labeling products holds you and everyone else in your household accountable. If you don’t label you will end up right back where you started.
