Home Organizing and Moving Assistance in Nassau County and Queens

The Uncluttered Domain recently visited two familes on the North Shore of Long Island, one in Great Neck, Nassau County, and the other in Queens. The Great Neck family had recently moved and the Queens family was getting ready to move. Both had series home organizing issues. In both cases, clutter and disorganization made their lives, and their moves, more difficult.

In the case of the Great Neck family, The Uncluttered Domain provided ShelfGenie shelving, which helped the family declutter their kitchen, which was where much of the clutter was located.
In the case of the Queens family, The Uncluttered Domain was able to be more proactive. Since the family had not yet packed for their move, The Uncluttered Domain was able to work with the family to determine which items they truly needed to keep, which items might be photographed and then thrown away, and which items were simply no longer needed at all. The Queens family was able to eliminate 30% of their clutter, which made packing for the move that much easier. The Uncluttered Domain also guided the Queens family in packing, unpacking and re-organizing their belongings, including the installation of a garage organizing system, all of which led to a decluttered home and happier homeowners.


The message: be proactive in your decluttering and make your move, and your life, less cluttered and more manageable.

Case Study #2 – Uncluttering in Manhasset,
On Long Island's North Shore


A realtor from Laffey Fine Homes referred Uncluttered Domain to a client in Manhasset, on the North Shore of Long Island. The home was to be put on the market, but the home wasn’t ready to be shown due to extensive clutter throughout the house. It was apparent that the wife was once organized, but for medical reasons, fell behind in maintaining the order in her home. She simply needed assistance with motivation, making important decisions as to what to keep or donate, and help cleaning out the extras – in short, uncluttering and organizing.

Uncluttered Domain can be hired to provide organizing and uncluttering (sometimes called decluttering) services from start to finish, or to compliment previous or ongoing work that the owner may be doing for themselves. In this case, the homeowners were actively involved and our staff worked side by side with them.

I chose a caring member of our staff who work well with our 55+ clients, and blends kindness with a no-nonsense attitude, so that the work gets done on a timely basis. The homeowners bought our 20-hour value package, which includes 20 man hours of work and the materials needed to donate, distribute or discard the belongings. At any time the homeowner can choose to add hours if that seems warranted.


My staff person has one session left to complete the uncluttering and organizing process. She will provide light home staging, another service of Uncluttered Domain, which helps prepare the home for marketing. This Manhasset, Long Island client called to highly compliment me on my staff and said, “I was so overwhelmed and don’t know how I would have done this without your staff.”

Case Study 1: Uncluttering in Port Washington, Long Island

Image courtesy of Shelf Genie

The senior concierge and uncluttering (some call it decluttering or organizing) services of Uncluttered Domain was requested by a social worker on the North Shore of Long Island.
The social worker’s potential client, Susan, was a woman in her 80s who lived in Port Washington.  Susan’s home was in such disrepair that it failed the state regulation, therefore the social worker couldn’t permit a member of her team to enter the home to provide Susan with the essential home care that she needed. 
My first meeting with Susan included a health and safety assessment of her home. Susan was in her housecoat and a winter coat when I met her.  It was immediately apparent that there were a multitude of problems in the home.  Susan explained that she was discharged from the hospital and her only relative lived far away.   
The home had been terribly neglected; it was not only cluttered and disorganized, it was unsanitary. There were signs of rodents and termites. Extension cords were attached to other extension cords going from one room to the next – very dangerous.  The structure of the home was unstable due to the termite damage.  Black mold was discovered all over the basement, first floor and second floor. The boiler was broken and the chimney needed to be rebuilt.
Papers cluttered every surface; documents, mail, junk mail, magazines and more, all piled on top of one another throughout the rooms on the first floor.  Susan’s home desperately needed to be downsized, uncluttered and organized.  While the Uncluttered Domain staff took charge of the document and mail management, Susan and I were busy vetting vendors for the additional work and repairs that were to be done in her home.  
The home was restored to its original state – safe and healthy – within two months.  Instead of aging-in-place, as Susan had originally planned, she sold her newly uncluttered home and chose a residence that met her satisfaction.

When it comes to organizing a home, there’s nothing like paper work to cause some pretty serious clutter mayhem.  Paper work is one of the hardest things for most of us to organize. It’s hard to keep up with, it’s hard to get rid of, and it’s small so only when its accumulated to dangerous cluttering levels do we usually realize that there is a problem with too much paper work.



Make a vital records keeper.

Buy a water tight file box that is around 13 11/16 “W X 10 3/6 “L X 11 7/8” H in dimensions. From there, have fun. Pick out file folders of any colors or patterns that you like. The only rules is that the files all have to look different.

Color coordinate each folder and then create a label. Your label could just be a simple hand written or typed up piece of paper that identifies what each colored folder represents.

For example:
Red-taxes
Green-medical
Blue – business
Yellow – bank statements


Tape this label on the inside of your file box but with the wording facing out towards you. You should be able to see the label while the file box is closed.
We know it could take a week or even a month in and of itself just to gather and filed all your most vital records. For this challenge, pictures of the box and folders are a great start.

We can’t wait to see!

We've been getting some great feedback from our Spring Cleaning Week Challenge and are so /impressed with the way some of our followers sorted through their rooms after yesterday’s tip.


Tip # 2

Organizing memorabilia is something many people find challenging because we often lack efficient storage solutions and therefore we end up letting our memorabilia clutter our home. 

Here are some creative storage solutions for some common memorabilia items:
·         

  •       For children’s’ artwork and projects you can designate one bulletin board for recent/seasonal projects. Kids love to see their art work hanging up. When you go to hang up something new take something old down and store the older item in a large folder. Go back to the folder later and take photos to file on the computer of the accumulated art projects or store the older projects in a photo album.
  •      Scarves, hats or any family heirlooms can draped over a dresser or hung on a wall with a decorative hook.
  •       Event tickets can be laminated and used as a book mark.



There is no right or wrong way to store memorabilia. Have fun with it, be creative but just make sure that the memorabilia is not crowding surfaces and is out of drawers.

Show us how you've stored your memorabilia! These are going to make for some fantastic pictures. Let the world see your savvy organizing skills. Remember, whoever gets the most likes wins a prize.

This week kicks off Uncluttered Domain’s Spring Cleaning Week in celebration of the first day of spring!

Each day this week we’ll be posting different blogs on tips for getting your home organized and ready for the spring season.

The key to a good spring cleaning is to have fun! So we invite you, to take the Spring Cleaning Week Challenge with us!

Follow the daily tips posted on our blog throughout the entire week. Post pictures of your finished work after you've followed the daily tip on Facebook and Twitter. Make sure to tag us on Facebook @Uncluttered Domain Inc. and on Twitter at @UnclutteredMove #springcleaningweek. Whoever follows our Spring Cleaning Week tips the best and gets the most likes, wins a prize!

The tips will be posted Monday-Friday. Contestants have until Sunday 3/23 to share all of their pictures from throughout the Spring Cleaning Week Challenge. Please email hannahtoran@UnclutteredDomain.com all 5 pictures by Sunday 3/23 to make sure we have everyone participating.  The winner will be announced Wednesday, 4/2.

 



So now are you ready for a fresh new start this spring season?
Let the organizing begin!

Tip # 1
First things first. Decide when, where, and what.

When will you begin to start organizing your home? Pick a date.
Where will you start first?  Pick a room in the house to start with.
What is your goal?  Focus in on one goal.

Once you have decided when, where, and what, you’ll need to start gathering helpful tools.
I recommend bringing a collapsible basket, such as a fold down empty mesh laundry hamper, and two large bags of different colors. These different colored bags are great for sorting. Use the colored bag for items you wish to get rid of and items you can donate can go into a clear bag.

To decide which items you should keep and which you should get rid of ask yourself these questions:
·        
I
·         Have you used this item within the last 12 months?
·         Do you need it for legal or tax purposes?
·         If it’s broken, will you fix it? Is it worth repairing?

Upload and share pictures of your sorting fun. Show us your bags and bins filled with sorted items and the results. Before and after pictures are the best and very popular these days!


Happy organizing and may the best organizer win!

Uncluttered Domain in the Media

From the printed press to the worldwide web, Uncluttered Domain Inc. has been making its way around the media. With a cover story and a blog, Uncluttered Domain Inc. has been sharing some of our insightful information and useful tips for a great New Year. 

Debbie Ginsberg President and Co-Founder of Uncluttered Domain Inc. shared some helpful organizing tips in this week’s cover story for the weekly local paper The Jewish Home. Readers read up on how to organize some of the most cluttered rooms in our homes, such as the kitchen, the toy room, and the home office. 

In case you missed it, check out some of our tips from this week’s cover story:

  • Everyday Pantry vs. Backup Pantry. Having two pantries is the key to an organized kitchen. Find a place in your kitchen that works for a smaller pantry where you can store your everyday items, such as bread for school lunches or granola bars. Things like boxes of brownie mix, jars of pickles, or even your mixer can go in a deeper, bigger pantry. 
  • Sort by age. To make sure each kid has the age appropriate toys accessible to them, try to organize the toy shelf or storage unit by age. You can also sort by gender. The Lego sets don’t need to be accessible to your three year old and the dollies don’t need to be accessible to your boys. When the toys are organized in a way that caters to each child’s specific interests, each child feels special and therefore responsible for their own toys.

  • Magazine boxes are a creative and fun option for storing the folders you need immediately. Pick out decorative magazine boxes that work with the d├ęcor of your home office. These holders work well with any 1/3 cut folders and can be found at almost any store that sells organizing tools. 




By following Debbie’s helpful organizing tips, we hope that readers will get a fresh, clean, and hopefully stress-free start to 2014! 



Also, featured this week 

was an editorial piece on the radio talk show “Money for Lunch” blog. Titled How to Help Your Parents Age Gracefully, this article discussed some of the challenges children of seniors’ face as seniors begin to age. Highlighted in this blog was Uncluttered Domain’s unique Senior Concierge Services; a service that was created to address many of the growing needs of seniors and their care takers.

We’d love to hear from you! 

Please share the blog with your friends or family members and make sure to pick up this week’s edition of The Jewish Home. Feel free to email Debbie at Debbie@UnclutteredDomain.com, with any questions or comments you may have on most recently published articles!
