If you have a room nicknamed ‘The Monster’ here’s how to slay the beast

A client called me and said “My entire house is very organized except for my playroom. I call it ‘THE MONSTER’. So I went to slay the monster because that is what I do; which is tackle messes that most people find overwhelming.

The steps in the process are:

  • sort
  • downsize/declutter
  • organize.

There were items that were removed and freecycled, others that were trashed, and the rest sorted and put away. We shifted the Ikea storage to make better use of the space.

As you can see from the collage of  BEFORE, IN PROGRESS, & AFTER PHOTOS it is a process and many times things get worse before they get better.  This beast took close to 3 hours and 15 minutes to slay.

Following up, the client said “The room is no longer a monster. The kids were able to play nicely on Shabbos & clean up afterward while I was able to enjoy my coffee and some quiet time while they were busy playing.”

Sometimes it just takes a new set of eyes and someone not afraid to conquer monsters to get a room from disaster-zone to fun & functional.

Hi. I’m Karen Furman, a home organizer and decluttering professional. Organizing is something I’ve been doing since 1st grade when used to straighten everyone’s desks. Fast forward a few decades later, I turned my passion for organizing into a business. Philosophy = Your home should be organized so you know where things are, to the degree that you feel relaxed and not stressed in your space. Method = A combination of Marie Kondo + FlyLady + my own style. YOU make the decisions. YOU decide what to keep and not to keep. I help provide clarity. Attitude = Positive, enthusiastic, non-judgmental
