Clutter has a way of creeping into a home. It starts with a pair of shoes left at the door, but never returned to their owner’s closet, and it goes from there. Odds and ends get tossed into a drawer, but never sorted. Shelves and counters become catchalls for books, mail and other miscellaneous items that seem to have no home. And closets keep the chaos hidden and out of sight – until you open the door.
There has never been a better time to tackle all the home organization projects on your to-do list. Whether you want to finally create a permanent space to store all your possessions or just want to develop better organizational skills that extend beyond the home, the custom closet installers at Arizona Garage & Closet Design can help. Here are a few tips to get started and stay organized all year long.

If you’re like most homeowners, keeping coats, boots and gloves organized and out of the way while not in use can seem easier said than done. Here are some tips from the Phoenix closet organizers at Arizona Garage & Closet Design to keep your winter gear close at hand and ready to use without cluttering your home.

Clutter is the leading killer of productivity in American households. Not only is clutter frustrating when you can’t immediately find important items you need, such as keys, bills or paperwork, but it can also negatively impact on your health as well. A crowded, disorganized space is distracting, diverting your attention to trivial things and constantly reminding you there is work that hasn’t been done. This feeling makes it impossible to relax in your own home, and this kind of stress is simply not good for you. If your home feels crowded by too many possessions, it’s time to take a step back and reassess your home organization to gain control over the clutter. Here are five types of clutter you can eliminate today to restore peace and productivity to every room in the house.
For some homeowners, the garage is nothing more than a place to store all of the things that don’t belong indoors, like bicycles or athletic gear. But for classic car collectors, the garage is the most important space in the home. Anyone who has seen the way Arizona’s scorching sun destroys automotive paint and interiors can attest to the fact that garages rule, especially for storing classic cars that tend to have antique parts, expensive renovations and delicate chassis made of fiberglass.
Not only is having a garage good news for your car, but it can also be fun for you, too. Many classic car owners take it one step further and customize their garages to fit their personality and style, or to better accent their auto collection. Follow these tips to get the most from your garage storage and keep your ride in mint condition for many years to come.
If you’re like most homeowners, you've probably come across the problem of having too many items that serve no real purpose in your home. From old sets of athletic pads and outgrown clothing to old musical instruments and spare appliances, you seem to wind up with more clutter than you know what to do with after you sort and organize your home.
Rather than throw these items away or sell them at a garage sale, why not consider donating them to local organizations who can give them a second life? National entities like Goodwill and the Salvation Army can be great places to start, but there are many more organizations that can better use specific items you no longer want to keep. Here are some of Arizona’s best charities and organizations to donate your unwanted items.
