We recently teamed up with Cara Greenstein who runs the popular Memphis blog Caramelized to help her organize her kitchen to start off the new year on the right foot. Here’s a look at Cara’s post about the whole process:
I consider myself a fairly organized and well-kept individual.
It wasn’t until I was reaching three feet back into my “pantry” — a one-cabinet IKEA space that hosts every dry good from pasta to canned tomatoes to crackers and brown sugar — that I paused and thought to myself, “this is simply not the way to operate.” Sure, the small size of our townhome has established parameters for what can fit versus not (I am not a member of Costco because bulk doesn’t work at this phase of our lives, ha!). But the efficiencies across our kitchen shelving simply did not exist.
That’s when I called the dynamic duo behind Blue Pencil Home, Katie and Brooke, to bring a robust resolution to my 2019 mindset.
Whether you need to declutter or downsize, reorganize or relocate, Blue Pencil Home is your go-to source for a stress-free job. The process was seamless: First, Katie and Brooke popped in to see the current situation through a complimentary consultation. They measured drawers, got a sense for what they were working with, and took notes for some new organizational needs such as jars, drawers or liners.
Their rate is $125/hour for a duo of organizers or $175/hour for three. And trust me — they are all hands on deck!! You’ll also pre-approve and pay for the materials that contribute to your new look. For example, the most darling copper-topped spice jars from Target reimagined my once out-of-hand spice cabinet. And these brilliant pan dividers provided a new way to locate the right size for sautéing (versus stacking 6-8 pans on top of one another).
