1. Your closet is packed and you can’t find a thing to wear.
Are you hoarding clothes that you’ll probably never wear again, but you keep telling yourself things like, “I could wear that to work.” Seriously…let it go.
2. You can’t close the guest closet door.
Once you start throwing stuff into the guest room closet– you won’t be able to stop. Have you graduated from junk drawer to junk closet? Whoa… We are only on reason number two and we already have some projects.
3. Cobwebs connect glassware on display shelves.
Okay, it’s true that you never (hardly ever) use that glassware and fine china. But does it have to look like it? And how does your carpet look? Check us out at Boulder, CO Carpet Cleaner, 80302.
4. What’s inside boxes is a total mystery.
Have you organized yourself into boxes of boxes? Do you have boxes of organizational boxes just waiting to be utilized in your garage or basement? Or how about random mystery boxes?

8. Dusty small appliances engulf the kitchen counter.
If they’re dusty, you probably don’t use them much. Put them away or wipe them down when cleaning the counter.
9. You consistently move cartons to get to the washer.
How does your laundry room look? Does the floor resemble a teenager’s bedroom floor– ankle deep in dirty clothes? Are you consistently moving laundry to get to the laundry? Have us clean your upholstery at Boulder, CO Carpet Cleaner, 80302.
10. You’ve resorted to stacking as an organizational tactic.
It’s true. We don’t have time to organize so we stack. Then, we look at the stacks and feel irritated and overwhelmed. And nothing gets done!
