Success Oasis Home Smart Getting organized is a great way to de-stress and de- clutter your life, and it doesn’t have to mean a huge time commitment — at least not if you do it right. Co lum n by R o b i n An n o n With the start of the New Year and spring-cleaning right around the corner, now is the perfect time to get organized. But organization does not need to be a tedious or unpleasant chore. With the help of a California Closets’ designer, you can completely renovate your closet, pantry, bathroom or media center to find the most effective use of space to ensure the ultimate level of organization. Maintaining a clean home is simplified when you have a dedicated storage place for everything — from shoes to important paperwork to kid’s toys, jewelry and wires. When you know where things belong, cleanup is a cinch and organization is inevitable. While finding adequate and systematized storage is the key to maintaining an effectively run household, this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on design or elegance. In fact, California Closets designers are committed to creating furniture and storage solutions that successfully marry function with fashion.
