Solution Hidden in the Clutter

This is a guest post written by Professional Organizer Lea Schneider from Pensacola FL and owner of

Sometimes, there is a plan before you touch the clutter. And sometimes, you simply have to dig in and touch the clutter to come up with a plan. If you don’t know what all is there, you simply have to dig in and start sorting. I call that the game of “Which of These Things Belong Together.”

In this story, one super busy family created one clutter-filled laundry room. That isn’t unusual considering we tend to stuff everything we don’t know what to do with in an out-of-sight spot, like the laundry room.

I couldn’t help but notice the big blue ironing board and knew right off that I’d need to find a home for it, especially since the homeowner confessed to only occasionally needing to iron. I could have guessed that since it was pretty hard to get to.

It wasn’t long before we spotted the iron, tucked away on a shelf. However, we hadn’t brought any organizing products with us so finding a place to hang them, out of the way, would have to be on a to-do list for another day. Besides, we had plenty to sort through.








In the middle of sorting the clutter into stacks of like-items, we discovered a treasure hidden in the clutter and it was just the treasure we needed.  Can you find the iron? Beside it on the shelf are two bags of mighty good Cajun style chips. Peeking out behind the chips, is an orange box.

Of all the things to be hidden in the clutter – an organizer! And a handy-dandy Rubbermaid Ironing Organizer (you can find the updated version of this product here).  The homeowner told us that she’d had it “for awhile” but never got around to putting it to use. It certainly didn’t take us long to attach it to the back of a closet door in the laundry room.  The board and iron are located conveniently for that occasional ironing job.

    I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or blog posts on this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this site.

    In this grand scheme of things you get a B+ just for effort. Where you lost me personally was on all the specifics. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more true here. Having said that, allow me tell you exactly what did give good results. The authoring is incredibly persuasive and that is possibly the reason why I am taking the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, even though I can notice a jumps in reasoning you make, I am definitely not certain of how you seem to connect your details which in turn produce the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your position but trust in the near future you actually link your facts much better.

    Together with every little thing that appears to be building within this area, all your opinions are fairly stimulating. Having said that, I am sorry, but I can not subscribe to your whole idea, all be it stimulating none the less. It looks to everyone that your opinions are generally not entirely validated and in fact you are generally your self not even thoroughly certain of your point. In any case I did appreciate reading it.

    First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before
    writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
