It's Summer and I bet if you have kids under the age of 10, 
you have the same problem I do

Too much kid stuff EVERYWHERE!

The kids get bored and everything comes out and onto the floor and every available table space, don't they?

In this new episode "Life Organized," professional organizer Barbara Reich works her magic in the home of James and Kathy Hurler. They are two busy parents of three adopted albino Chinese children, Logan, Bei and Fei. James is an enthusiastic collector of Star Wars figurines and a plethora of toys. As their family has grown, James and Kathy have struggled to find enough space for both James and the kids to play. 

In addition to the limited space, the lack of organization in the house makes matters more complicated for the visually impaired children who are legally blind as a result of albanism. Barbara took the bull by the horns, decluttering the family den, consolidating and separating the grown-up toys the the children’s toys, creating a cohesive space for the grown and the still growing to unwind and explore.There are some great tips in the video that we can all use!



As you could see, she wraps up her organization into four easy steps that can be applied to any organizing project, that you or I have! The four steps: are 1) purge, 2) design, 3) organize, and 4) maintain.  Once you master those, staying clutter free is a breeze!
