  1. Can you share your favorite home organization tip?
    What works best for me is to work within the 20/10 rule. 20 minutes of organizing/cleaning – 10 minutes of something fun. I don’t have the attention span otherwise.  Also labels.

  1. What is your favorite madesmart® product and why?
    Fridge & Pantry Bins! But I use them more in other parts of my house than the refrigerator.  I use them in our linen closet for first aid, extra makeup, etc…  They keep all those small things from taking over the entire space, plus I can label the bins, so I have no excuse to not put things back where they belong.

    This might be cheating but I really enjoy the Stack Collection, all of it. Living in an apartment where countertop space is so limited, the only way I can go is up.

    Time. I’m less inclined to clean or organize if It’s going to take me a long time to do. If everything has a home, I know exactly where to put it without having to worry about re-situating items and squeezing things together to make them fit into a cabinet or drawer.
  1. What is your favorite madesmart® product and why?
    My favorite products are the Cabinet Shelves and Interlocking Bins. I live in an old building with uniquely sized kitchen and bathroom storage, so being able to add some customization to my drawers and cabinets is very helpful in allowing enough space for everything to fit and be visible.

OPERATIONS SPECIALIST

    What is your favorite thing about working at madesmart®?
    Easily, the people and the environment. Work load can be rough some days but working with people you actually like make things just a wee bit better.

    Can you share your favorite home organization tip?
    Don’t forget to maximize vertical space when it comes to storage. It really helps with maximizing efficiency. All that vertical space is just free real estate.

    What inspires you to organize?
    Spending 20 minutes looking for a nail clipper is an awful experience, that’s enough motivation for me.

    What is your favorite madesmart® product and why?
    Probably the Two-Level Spice Organizer. It’s a great blend of stylish and convenient. It doesn’t take up much space, but the two-level design stores a lot for its size. Admittedly, I’ve been more inclined to use it for organizing random stuff rather than spices, but, to each their own.
