來回答前一陣子朋友 Linda 問我的問題….

她說女兒房間亂七八糟,可是每次幫她整理過之後,沒多久就恢復原狀了,所以 Linda 懷疑我幫客戶整理過的空間,可以維持整齊多久?

首先,我必須要承認,為了拍照 After 要好看,整理完的時候,一定是以最佳狀況入鏡,所以要客戶的衣櫥隨時保持剛整理完的那種最佳狀態,是不實際的期待,連我自己的衣櫥都不是 100% 的整齊的。

可是呢,我可以告訴各位的是,我曾經回去過好幾位的客戶家,請我整理過的那些空間,他們都可以保持著至少 80 – 90% 的整齊,有些甚至和我剛整理完沒有兩樣。因為如果我幫他們設計或整理的系統是符合他們的取用需要,而且每個東西都有個 “家” 的時候,他們就自然知道東西要放到哪裡,需要的時候要去哪裡拿。當然有時候客戶使用後,會發現有更合適的使用方法,或者需要做些小的調整,這些我完全都不介意,因為客戶使用起來好用的收納方式,才是最好的方式。

donations

After a few hours of work at a client’s place, Sunny brought a car full of stuffs to Goodwill for donations.

My client said she’ll call Goodwill to pick up these items, but the pick up time is often days or even weeks later. Goodwill is only few blocks away from my home, so I don’t mind taking stuffs there to donate for my clients. I offer this service for free and I cleared the client’s space the same day, so we could have more space for organizing. Also, all donations are tax-deductible! It’s a win-win situation!

經過幾個小時的工作之後, Sunny 從客戶的地方清走了一整車的東西,並且免費幫客戶帶去 Goodwill 捐掉了。

本來客戶說他會打電話請 Goodwill 來載走這些東西,但是以我以前的經驗,我知道他們通常都要約到好幾天,甚至好幾週之後才能來搬走。因為 sunny 家就在 Goodwill 附近,所以可以當天就幫客戶免費載走東西拿去 Goodwill 捐掉。如此一來,客戶省了許多麻煩,不但不必約不必等,空間也可以立刻清出來做其他的收納用途。而且捐的東西還可以抵稅喔! 真是一舉數得!

Heni-ottoman

This was a small “bonus” project Sunny did for her client. Homeowner used to dump her photos, greeting cards, gift bags, wrapping papers and misc. items into her living room ottoman (with storage space underneath). Sunny brought in some plastic shoe boxes to sort her items into containers and then put everything back to the ottoman – organized!

The whole process only took Sunny 30 mins from start to finish. You can do this, too! Just remember “A place for everything and everything in its place”! Put like items in the same containers and you’ll find things easily!

這是 Sunny 幫客戶做的一個額外的小 “謝禮”。客戶之前都把相片,賀卡,包裝紙,禮物袋等等都一股腦丟進咖啡桌下方的收納箱 (可兼作咖啡桌/座椅/收納箱的客廳家具)。

Sunny 準備了一些好用的塑膠容器,先把東西全部拿出來一一分類放入容器裡,然後再把容器擺回收納箱裡,就變得很整齊了。全部從頭到尾只花了 Sunny 30 分鐘的時間就搞定! 你也可以做得到喔! 只要記得大原則 :”每個東西都要有個家,每個東西都要放回它的家”,善用容器來做分類整理,收納並不會太困難喔!

當然如果你還是做不到的話,歡迎聯絡 Sunny 為你做整理!

Sunny’s Project: Office Organization.
Sunny 的收納案件: 書房收納整理

The client moves into a new house, so we moved her office items and re-organized them into her new office. This the old and new drawers for her most commonly used stationary. Her new drawer is wider yet shallower. I reused the small tin boxes that the clients no longer uses. The boxes and the covers can both become dividers for this very shallow drawer and they’re perfect size for the small items.

The 2 larger dividers on the left are also recycled from small shoe box lids.

We didn’t spend any money buying organizers to organizer this drawer. We only keep the items that she actually used in this drawer and get rid of the broken/bad/unused ones. Also we relocate the sunglasses and papers to different drawers (the new drawer is much shallower). Now she has a drawer that’s organized and easy to use.

客戶搬到新家去,這是她的書房的新舊抽屜對照圖。新的抽屜比較寬,但也比較淺。

Sunny 回收利用客戶不要的一些小鐵盒,把盒身跟盒蓋都回收利用,拿來裝一些小文具。左邊兩個收納盒,也是回收小鞋盒的蓋子再利用。

這個抽屜的收納整理,完全沒有花錢買收納用品。我們只保留客戶真正在用的文具,把多餘的,壞的,或是根本不用的都去除,把剩下要用的都分類整理好,這樣客戶就有一個整齊又好用的新抽屜了。至於眼鏡盒因為太大,所以放到其他抽屜,紙類也因為功能不同,而收到其他的抽屜裡。

相信很多人都有一樣的問題,桌上或抽屜裡有幾十支筆,可是要用的時候,常常拿到的都是沒水的筆,或是很難寫的筆。建議大家,只留下你最愛用的那幾支基本款 在筆筒裡/抽屜裡,把壞的,沒水的全部扔掉。至於還可以用的,先全部集中到另外的地方,找個小盒子或桶子裝起來,當成備用的庫存,只有在你常用的筆已經用 到沒水丟掉了,才再拿出一支備用的筆出來用,一次只換一支。這麼一來,雖然你筆筒裡的筆看起來好像變得很少了,可是每次拿出來的每一支都是好用的筆!

Sunny’s Project: Kitchen Organization

These cabinet are 24″ deep, so everything in the back of the shelves are hard to reach. Sunny installed these pull-out drawers for the client to solve the problem. After organization, the client can find all her spices, sauces or can foods easily by pulling out the wire drawers. It can be accessed from the front or sides.

Sunny 的收納整理案件 – 廚房收納

這個高櫃子的深度有兩呎深,因此放在櫃子裡面的東西很難拿取。 Sunny 幫客戶安裝了這些不鏽鋼製的拉取式抽屜來解決櫃子太深的問題。安裝收納完畢之後,無論是要取用調味品,醬汁或是罐頭食品,都非常方便,只要把抽屜拉出來,可以從前面或兩側來拿取
