“Sparking Joy” by de-cluttering and organizing your life is definitely trending right now, and it’s a lifestyle that I can get behind! It’s also a timely trend as we’ve just moved into our first NYC apartment and downsizing is a must. Tapping our friends at Horderly and The Container Store, they totally transformed our space into a tidy and organized apartment and we couldn’t be happier!
Olivia and I had taken off our closet doors to open up our bedrooms. My sliding doors only let me reach a sliver of my closet and Olivia’s wouldn’t open all the way without hitting her bed. We both realized – quickly – that we were going to have to organize our lives if we wanted exposed closets. We had both gotten rid of so many possessions when we downsized and moved to NYC, but still (somehow!) it felt like there was already clutter!
After much research, we enlisted the Horderly team – a professional home organization company. Jamie & the team were fantastic ~ so fun and they really changed our apartment slash how I interact with my space on a daily basis! We took *everything* out .. the closets, bedside tables, dresser, medicine cabinet. Everything came out and divided, then assessed if it was necessary or could be donated. Seeing all your toiletries on the ground in designated piles or all your white button-downs grouped together helped so much to realize what I already had enough of. After a full day of shuffling, piling, stacking, hanging and folding – the apartment was final and organized. So beautifully organized.

Have you ever enlisted a professional organizer to help you de-clutter your living space? It’s one of those things I didn’t know I needed in my life until I went through the process! If you’re in NYC, I’d highly recommend Horderly to take care of all your organizing needs. They also will travel too! 😀
