New feature! Ask me questions — get actual responses!

by respaced on October 19, 2010

I’m going to be starting a new feature called “Ask the Organizer,” where I will post responses to your home organizing questions. Ask me anything you want to know about kids’ rooms, living rooms, kitchens, garages, attics, closets, collectibles and memorabilia, to-do lists, time management and more.

What’s on your mind? What challenges you the most in your house?

Email your questions to I’m looking forward to lending a hand!

So, I hate umbrellas and love hats! How can I store the ones I am not using?
I have no wall space. I wouldn’t begin to know where to find a hat box…..

Thank you for this opportunity to ask you a question!

I have become an organized person, however years ago that was less true of me. My biggest organizing failure has been with our family pictures. We have boxes of pictures that are all mixed up and most are not labelled. I know that a certain picture was taken on the first day of school, but have no idea which year or how old the kids are. Very frustrating!
This is an overwhelming job that I have been unable or unwilling to tackle. Where to start? How to sort? What to cull? How to store the keepers? Any suggestions that you could offer would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your assistance,
