The client's movers just unpacked the boxes and left all the mess on the garage’s shelves. One hour later, the movers had gone and the garage was just a nightmare... The client was totally overwhelmed by the burden of tidying up.
During my initial visit I suggested to M. to buy SAMLA storage boxes from IKEA to organise her garage stuff. As she didn't have time to buy the boxes I bought them for her and brought them along for the Big Day! We started by taking all the stuff off the shelves and then decided to apply the best principle ever when it comes to any kind of organizational task: group LIKE with LIKE items!
After having stored LIKE with LIKE items, we clearly labelled each shelf for an easier retrieval.
M. now knows exactly what she has and where each item is!
