Boxy Girl + Structured Aesthetics Shoe Organization BLOG

SA Shoe Social MediaHave you seen the shoe collection of our Boxy Boss? It is TO DIE FOR!  Catch the latest Boxy Girl + Structured Aesthetics Vlog on the Boxy Girl YouTube Channel to sneak a peek!

With a shoe collection this large and stunning, top-notch organization is a must.  We’re sharing the latest trends to keep your shoes organized….and your closet looking stylish!

  • Sort your shoes by color and type | To start, sort your shoe collection by color. Within each color group, separate and order shoes by type.  For example, all of my brown pumps will go together, all of my black sandals will go together, and all of my vibrant hued boots will go together.  Storing shoes in this way will not only help you quickly identify the exact shoe you are looking for, it will also create a stunning display in your closet.
  • Maximize your space | Storing shoes with one toe facing in, and one toe facing out will maximize the space available for your shoe collection. In our Boxy Girl + Structured Aesthetics “Shoe Organization” Vlog (available to view on the Boxy Girl YouTube Channel), you can see that we DOUBLED the amount of shoes we were able to store by organizing in this way.
  • Choose your storage solutions wisely | Select shelving that allows you to adjust the height of each shelf. This will allow you to customize your shoe storage as your collection grows.  Create taller shelves for your boots and heels, and save space by creating shorter shelves for sandals and flats.

I hope you enjoy these quick tips to keep your shoe collection stunning and organized!   Be sure to follow Boxy Girl and Structured Aesthetics on Social Media to stay current on the latest trends in beauty and organization. Stay stylish!!

Boxy Girl + Structured Aesthetics Skincare Organization BLOG

SA Skincare Social MediaThere are two crucial steps to organization: implementing and maintaining systems.  In order to truly create functional systems that can be easily maintained, it is important to analyze your routine.  In this post we will use skincare as the “model” routine, however, the points discussed can be applied to any daily ritual.

Step #1 | In discussing daily routines with my clients, I encourage them to start at the beginning.  What is the very first thing you do?  What is your last step?  What do you integrate into this routine on a regular basis?  How about an irregular basis?  The answers to these question will guide you as you create your functional routine.

 

Step #2 | Once you have identified the steps to your routine, it is important to pinpoint the items you use during these steps.  When designing an organized skincare system with my clients, we select all lotions, toners, cleansers, etc. that are used throughout the day.  We would then categorize the time of day these products are used.  For example, all the morning skincare products would be grouped together, and all evening skincare products would be grouped together.

Step #3 | Using the answers to the questions in Step #1, along with the categories created in Step #2, we are ready to implement a functional and organized skincare system.  Select an organizing product that allows you to maintain your morning and evening skincare categories.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE using Boxy Girl with my clients for this purpose!  Each drawer creates an accessible home for the identified categories.  The drawers, while gorgeous in high quality Lucite material, are also incredibly functional and easy to slide open and closed.  It also makes for a perfect routine organizer;  morning products are stored on the top two stacks, and evening products are stored on the bottom two stacks.  I also love that I can stack this organizer as high as I need it to be by adding additional vertical stacks, or as wide as I would like by stacking side-by-side.
