WE HAVE A WINNER!
Congratulations to Penny Caughfield of Merritt Island, Florida! She found the three easy-to-fix changes that Justice Kennedy could make to improve the appearance of his office shown below:
* Organize the items on the side table in a more pleasing and sensible fashion.
* Turn the binder on the next-to-bottom row of his bookcase right-side-up and put it with the other pale blue ones.
* Clear out the objects under the side table. If they are show-worthy, display them on an empty shelf. If they're not, cover the table with a floor-length skirt and hide them.
Enjoy Designers Here and There: Inside the City and Country Homes of America's Top Decorators, Penny! It's on its way to you now.

FAST FIX INTERVIEW
NOVEMBER 17, 2011
YOU’RE NOT ALONE!
We all have our downfalls when it comes to decluttering, including Ms. Neatnik here. That’s my
cupboard pictured on the Home Page. Holy moly, what a mess it was!
|BEFORE FAST FIX||AFTER FAST FIX|
|The only cluttered spot in my house, I just didn’t want to deal with it. But I finally did. Good news: It’s stayed that way. Definitely makes life easier and sure looks better!|
• Top shelf -- matching boxes for rings, necklaces, bracelets
• Second shelf -- folded T-shirts, sweats and nities, all facing the same direction
• Third shelf -- handbags and totes, frequently-used ones in front; small ones tucked inside larger
• Fourth shelf -- business supplies; CDs and camera equipment in a flea-market tin
• Bottom shelf – rarely-used totes in the back and a couple oversized bags in front
|Please share your decluttering tips and stories. Email them to Michele.Keith.firstname.lastname@example.org and |
I’ll post on the site. Include your name and city. Otherwise I’ll sign them “Anonymous.”
|Looking forward to hearing from you!|
