Transcript for Ann Lightfoot and Kate Pawlowski share organizing tips for small spaces
YOU DO HAVE A STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME SO I GOT TO BE NICE. THE PERFECT TIME OF YEAR TO GET ORGANIZED AND MAKE YOUR HOME BETTER THAN EVER AND WE ALL HAVE THOSE PLACES IN OUR HOME THAT WE CAN'T QUITE KEEP ORGANIZED SO TO HELP US TACKLE THEM WE HAVE ANN AND KATE, THE MOTHER/DAUGHTER DUO AUTHOR OF "LOVE YOUR HOME AGAIN." YOU CAN PICK UP THE PROBLEM SOLVING PRODUCTS BY SCANNING THE QR CODE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. FIRST OF ALL, CONGRATULATIONS. >> THANK YOU. >> EXPECTING YOUR THIRD ONE. >> I AM. IT'S TRUE. >> ALL RIGHT. WHAT IS IT ABOUT IT WE ALL GO, OH, AND -- WE'RE LOOKING FOR SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO HELP US. WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU GIVE. >> WATCH THE FRONT DOOR. SHALL CAREFUL WHAT YOU'RE BUYING AND BRING IN. IF YOU DON'T HAVE EXCESS YOU WON'T HAVE CHAOS. EXCESS KEEPS COMING AND MAKES IT VERY HARD TO ORGANIZE. >> ESPECIALLY WHEN WE HAVE ALL THIS TECH STUFF WE HAVE. >> YEP. SO ONE OF OUR FAVORITE TIPS WITH TECH IS TO KEEP IT ALL CONTAINED IN ONE PLACE RATHER THAN HAVING CORDS ALL OVER YOUR HOUSE, YOU CAN HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THIS. IT IS A USB CHARGING STATION ON A TABLE LIKE THIS OR YOUR KITCHEN COUNTER AND EVERYTHING IS IN ONE PLACE AND TURN IT THIS WAY SO YOU DON'T SEE ALL THE CORDS. LOOK HOW NEAT AND ORGANIZED IT IS. >> IT KEEPS THE FAMILY ALL TOGETHER. >> HAVING FAMILY NIGHT EVERYBODY'S PHONES GO IN HERE. >> WHAT ABOUT THE CORDS WE OFTEN HAVE? >> I DON'T LIKE THEM. AND SO YOU CAN ALSO, MANY PIECES OF FURNISH TU NOW, DRESSERS AND SIDE TABLES COME WITH A HOLE DRILLED IN THE BACK SO YOU CAN PUT ONE OF THESE, A SURGE PROTECTOR AND BRING IT THROUGH THE CORD AND EVERYTHING IN THERE, WHEN YOU CLOSE IT NO CORDS AT ALL. >> ALL HIDDEN AWAY. >> HOW ABOUT THE JUNK DRAWER? >> I THINK -- >> COME ON. >> MISLEADING TERM. I FEEL LIKE IT SHOULD BE ONE OF THE MOST USEFUL SPACES IN YOUR HOUSE, RIGHT? >> IN THEORY. >> IN THEORY. ALL THE THINGS YOU'RE USING ON A DAILY WEEKLY BASIS THAT EVERYBODY IN THE HOUSE WILL LOOK FOR. PENS, SCISSOR, BATTERIES, TAPE, ALL THAT. WE LOVE THESE DRAWER DIVIDERS. CAN YOU MOVE THE PIECES, RIGHT, SO IT CONTAINS EACH SEPARATE SECTION. AND THERE YOU GO. IT SHOULDN'T BE JUNK. AS SOON AS YOU START PUTTING THINGS YOU DON'T NEED IN A JUNK DRAWER, THAT'S THE END. >> YOU DO GO TO THIS DRAWER. >> ALL THE TIME. >> OKAY. >> JUNK DRAWER. TO BE YOUR EFFICIENCY DRAWER. >> I LIKE THAT. HOW YOU SPIN IT. HOW ABOUT IF YOU WANT TO DO IT YOURSELF. >> ANOTHER WAY TO DO IT. USE THINGS YOU ALREADY HAVE AND SO THIS BOX IS JEWELRY BOXES, TUPPERWARE, WE'VE LOST THE LIDS AND CONTAIN IT AS WELL IN A JUNK DRAWER YOU WANT TO KEEP THE THINGS CONTAINED. THAT SEPARATE CONTAINER MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER. >> I'M ALWAYS LOSING THE TOP TO MY TUPPERWARE. I KNOW, REALLY. >> THEY GO IN YOUR EFFICIENT DRAWER. >> I LIKE IT. ALL RIGHT, SO I LOVE THIS. THIS IS REALLY GOING TO HELP FOLKS. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU CAN HAVE THAT HAS MULTIPLE USES AT THE FRONT DOOR. >> THIS IS THE THREE-TIERED CART FROM THE CONTAINER STORE AND USE THEM IN OUR CLIENTS' HOMES. BY THE FRONT DOOR HAVE EVERYTHING UP ON TOP YOU GRAB ALL THE TIME. SUNGLASSES, KEYS, STUFF FOR THE DOG GOING OUT AND LESS USED, HATS, GLOVES AND UMBRELLAS, USE THE TOP FOR THE MOST FUNCTION AND THEN AS YOU GO DOWN. >> ALL RIGHT. NOW THE BATHROOM CAN GET A LITTLE MESSY HERE, ANN. >> IT'S A SMALL SPACE BUT COULD BE WHERE IT'S POWDER ROOM AND HAVE GUESTS IN THERE SO THE TOP TIER ON THIS CAN BE PRETTY THINGS LIKE THIS, YOU KNOW, LOTION, CANDLE, A LITTLE PLANT. THOSE THINGS AND THEN BACK UP AND SUPPLY UNDERNEATH SO TOILET PAPER. >> AHH. >> CAN ROLL AROUND ON ALL THAT. SOMETHING I THINK YOU CAN HAVE. >> BACK INTO MY HOUSE SOON. >> WHAT IS THIS? >> WE LOVE THESE FOR DIAPER STATIONS, RATHER THAN HAVING A CHANGE OF CLOTHES, A SWADDLE, DIAPERS, WIPES, TISSUES, PACIFIERS, IT'S ALL IN ONE STATION SO WHEREVER YOU ARE WITH BABY CAN BE RIGHT WITH YOU. MOVE INTO ANOTHER ROOM TO GET AWAY FROM THE OTHER CHILDREN THEN THERE YOU GO. YOU HAVE THIS WHEREVER YOU GO. >> BOTTOM LINE, SOMEONE PICKING UP YOUR BOOK. WHAT DO YOU HOPE THEY GET OUT IT? >> WE WANT PEOPLE TO LOVE THEIR HOME AGAIN AND WANT THEM TO ENJOY THAT FEELING OF BEING IN THE SPACE AND NOT FEELING STRESSED AND OVERWHELMED AND HAVING THE TIME TO DO THINGS WITH THEIR FAMILY AND THEIR FRIENDS THAT THEY LOVE RATHER THAN FEELING, YOU KNOW, STRESSED AND ANXIOUS. >> THE IDEA AGAIN WHEN YOU MOVE INTO A NEW HOME YOU'VE INVESTED YOUR TIME, MONEY, YOU'RE EXCITED SO TO GET THAT FEELING BACK, I LOVE THIS PLACE, IT'S REALLY JUST TOO MUCH STUFF. THE PROBLEM IS NEVER THE SPACE. IT'S THE STUFF. >> OH, IT'S NEVER -- I KNOW BUT I THINK WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT THE FRONT DOOR, WHAT YOU BRING IN, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO PUT OUT? >> EXACTLY THAT. >> ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU BOTH. CONGRATULATIONS. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> YOU'RE READY. >> I GOT THREE WEEKS TO GO WITH THIS LITTLE GUY. >> WE WISH YOU ALL THE VERY BEST. >> THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU FOR THESE SIMPLE SOLUTIONS AND YOU CAN SHOP ALL OF THESE PRODUCTS BY SCANNING THE QR CODE OR GOING TO OUR
