Organizing our things is important. It is helpful to know where things are stored and how to easily access them. But let’s be honest with ourselves, organizing is always only a temporary solution. We organize our things and find new storage solutions today…but are left again tomorrow, doing the exact same thing.
I was generously offered the services of unpacking and organizing by the company that relocated me and my husband because the moving company made many mistakes, lost some of our items, and were very unprofessional.
At first I thought of just telling them, “Thanks, but no thanks.” I was already feeling very frustrated and did not want any more strangers in my new home.
I am SO glad that I did not tell them that I did not need the service.
The UNpackers were awesome!
All I had to do is show each of them the rooms that I wanted items unpacked or organized and the next thing I knew my bathroom, office, closet and kitchen were revamped specifically for us.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone that is moving or just wants to get some great ideas to organize and utilize space they did not think they had.
The UNpackers are excited to announce our new website! It’s been years since our last update, and we are super pleased with the results. Our new website has been updated with fresh content, more helpful information and, of course, a brand-new look. It’s also mobile-friendly, so you can find what you need on any device.
Not everyone can afford to hire a handyman to build extra closet shelves.
White particle board shoe racks and two shelf tables from Target fit nicely on a shelf and create upper storage for blankets, pillows or luggage, while leaving reachable space for purses and supplies. Plastic crates used for files can be turned on their side to create a shelf and storage area below. For those of us on a tight budget a small moving box turned on its side will create a shelf with space beneath.
Organized people save time and money, make more money, and have lower stress and frustration levels. The amount of information available to us continues to grow at a rapid pace, as do the number of demands on our time. The UNpackers gives you the power to decide on what items to take action on, what to keep, and what to toss.
Tips for the Home:
Take your children with you when you go to donate unused items. This helps them learn to part with things.
Look up to identify storage spaces in a room; bare walls and above the cabinets are often underutilized. Also, don’t forget behind the door.
Evaluate whether you want to continue receiving magazines you’re not reading, or consider rotating subscriptions.
Group items together according to how you use them. For instance, keep all ingredients needed for baking together.

Stackable drawers, regardless of size, are especially suited for under the bathroom sink or in closets or offices, according to professional organizer Valerie Cantrell. The small ones are wonderful for ointments, bandages, contact lenses, hair ribbons or clips, Cantrell says. She likes Sterilite’s three-drawer stackables. I’ve been able to find them at Big Lots for $4.99 each.
