This is the 2nd in my Organizing Stuff video series.
In this video, you’ll see The Organizing Lady show you tips for organizing the clothes closet, storing seasonal clothing, and best place to place your clothes hamper.

The Organizing Lady Cyndi Seidler presents a few tips in a light-hearted way regarding some of the basics of organizing your stuff. This isn’t for a mature audience. Strong language is used a few times. And no dogs were harmed in the making of this video either.
Usually when someone calls me for help with their home or office organization issues it's at the disaster point and beyond. At the point of no-visual return is the time that baffles me the most. Because, when it gets real bad a person has to wonder how anyone in that space survived this long, and if they even realized it's probably been bad for more than a day, or even a week.
