5S Organization System
A century-old system for simplifying living and work spaces.
Perhaps it’s that area or room that makes you want to close the door and forget due to the unmanageable clutter. Maybe it’s a closet that requires pulling everything out just to get at what you need.
Keep, donate or discard. Keep like with like. Once you have selected your area, we pull everything out; and I mean everything! We will sort through each item and place it in one of the three categories: keep, donate, or discard. We aim to keep only what you use, remains in working order, fits, or brings you joy. Then, grouping similar items together will eliminate having the same items scattered throughout the house.
Clean the area and items. Once everything has been cleared from the area, we do a thorough cleaning. Since the space is empty it’s the perfect opportunity. Then, it’s time to clean the items in the “keep” pile. This will be an easier job since we have reduced the items to what you really use and love.
Set in Place
A place for everything and everything in its place. Now that everything is clean, we find a new home for each item. This is when we assess the prime storage real estate in your home, keeping items you use regularly in easy-to-access locations. Having a designated place for each item lets you know exactly where to find it every time. No more searching and wondering “where did I put that?”
Maintain improvements. You will need to make a conscious daily effort to resist old habits. Remember, if you use it, put it away. If you don’t need it or already have one, don’t buy it. If you think “I’ll do it later,” that means only more clutter. By doing a little each day, these new actions will form new habits of organization. After seeing and feeling the results of a clean and organized space, you will want to keep it that way, clutter free.
