Whether we’re embarking on a big or small makeover, here at Howards we use the Stop, Sort and Solve methodology; and we encourage you to do the same. Before pulling anything out of a cupboard or rushing off to buy an organiser, STOP and consider what the specific problem is with the space you’re about to makeover. Ask yourself – what do I need to do to improve this area?
With your firm goal in mind, it’s time for the SORT phase and this is where you’re going to need to roll your sleeves up. Generally speaking we pull everything out of the space we intend to makeover, throw away items that are broken and create a donate pile for those things you no longer need. We then sort what’s left into similar groups. Once you can see what you have left to store, the SOLVE phase begins. Let’s go!
