Look no further, friend. The Grid + Glam blog is your online home for all of the storage hacks, home organizing ideas, and mindset tips you could possibly need.
I launched Grid + Glam at the beginning of 2018 and couldn’t have dreamed that by the end of the year I would need a dedicated headquarters to run the business. The business started with a couple of clients a month and quickly gave way to a hectic schedule where I worked during every available moment, including nights and weekends.
In order to reduce my working hours without compromising the quality of my client service, I knew I had to quickly expand my team and spend less time working on Grid + Glam’s daily functions myself. And that team needed a dedicated headquarters. Since I know that an organized and beautiful room creates a calm mind, I needed to set up my office accordingly, and create a space designed for a CEO and her team.
While completing this project, I was thinking about you all. Wouldn’t this project be the perfect way to show how I do what I do? To let you get inside my head from the start of a project to...
Most of my clients have at least a little anxiety around organizing. Some have anxiety around the process of getting organized. And for others, it is anxiety around their ability to stay organized (and for some, it’s of course, both). Research tells us that clutter can cause stress and anxiety. But what happens if the process of becoming organized also stresses you out?
After working with countless clients, I have distilled their anxieties into six main roadblocks. I’m going to address each, and provide you with new ways to overcome them.
Break. It. Down. Here’s a little nugget of truth for you: I get overwhelmed when I go to a new client’s home! My mind races with everything that needs to get done. But, letting that overtake me doesn’t help. I have to remind myself to...
Finally, FINALLY spring is here! The snow has melted away, and I've put away my heaving winter coat. As the seasons change, I like to (read: make myself) look inward and examine any routines or habits that I might need to change to ensure I’m living my best life. Sounds pretty tedious . . . but, it’s true.
No surprise to anyone, I can't get into a good headspace without first having a clean and organized physical space. This means accomplishing not only my routine resets, but also my seasonal resets. In addition, if I’m running a Bootcamp, I try to accomplish the Bootcamp tasks before I launch it to make sure that each task is doable for everyone participating. So . . . I began my spring cleaning reset. I won’t spoil the Bootcamp by sharing too many details here, but I got a lot done! My house is ready for spring and looking beautiful, and my garage and lawn are pristine!
Is it weird that I get a little high when I...
During the Grid + Glam February Organizing Bootcamp, a client asked about my "Game Changers" - things that have revolutionized how I get and stay organized. I answered the question in the closed Facebook Group, but also wanted to share it with you here. I’ve broken them into two categories: organizing game changers and routine game changers. I hope some of these ideas will help you on your journey to becoming the most organized person you know!
