Francine had a great area for toy storage in her basement, but it had become overflowed to the point that it was unusable.
She was in the process of getting divorced when we first started working together, and Francine was struggling with maintaining the house on top of working full time and taking care of 4 children.
Her ex-husband had added to the problem by using the “throw everything in a bag and hide it in the closet” technique whenever they had people over.
We worked together to go through all the garbage bags, and pulled out the toys that she wanted to keep.
We organized them in bins with labels to make it easy for the kids to put them away on their own. As a result, Francine was able to move her holiday decorations from her dining room to her storage area!
