A Sneak Peek at Co-Founder, Ashley Murphy's NEAT Home!

Time and time again, we get asked if our homes are as organized as we lead on. Believe it or not, they aren't always as NEAT as you would think OR ... as we would hope, but we do always have a home and system for everything. It just takes some effort to keep it in working order. We thought it would be fun to pop in on one of our Queen Neat Girls to see just how organized she keeps things. Ashley Murphy is probably the type-Aist of us all, so let's see if she really holds up to the NEAT girl standards...

Here is a sneak peek of some of the most organized spaces in her home. She recently had the priviledge of working with an amazing photographer, Courtney Cimo and is over the moon with how the images turned out. There are several more photos to come, but we thought it was only fair to share the up close and personal ones first ...

Which NEAT Dad is the Most OCD???

Would you believe us if we told you that our male clients are actually far more OCD than our female??? It's true. Now, don't get us wrong ... the man of the house is usually the most hesitant to hire us. Then, once we've worked our magic, they are the one's singing our praises over their newly perfected space. 

We thought what better way to honor our male clients than a post for Father's Day! We did some digging and actually found out that it's not just the NEAT girls that are a little OCD around the house. We are sure you were curious as to which NEAT Dad has the most OCD habits...so, we asked some of them to share just what they are so obsessed with. Think you can figure out which statement matches which Dad???

1. This NEAT Dad is more than obsessed with his car or any car for that matter. In fact, he is so obsessed that he washes it up to two times per week. 

2. This NEAT Dad insists on using only wooden hangers for his clothes, even though his wife preaches to him all about the slimline hangers saving space. 

3. This NEAT Dad can't get out of the shower without straightening all of the bottles and separating into their categories. Likes with likes of course!

4. This NEAT Dad gets his hair cut every three weeks to the day and panics when he goes a day or two over!

5. This NEAT Dad re-organizes the dishwasher after it's already been loaded...every time. No matter who packed it!

6. This NEAT Dad has a strange meticulous way of rolling his toothpaste. He can't even share his tube with his wife because it has to be so perfectly rolled!

Wow! Now those are some fun OCD habits. And you say we are the crazy, type A ones!?!? OCD officially stands for Obsessive Compulsive DAD! Happy Father's Day everyone!

Two Simple Ways to Achieve Your Dream Closet

We're sure it will come as no surprise that we go above and beyond for our clients to ensure they are living a life of luxury. By having a beautifully organized home, not only will you feel more at ease and efficient, but you will also feel more inspired to love your things. You don't have to have the most amazing walk in closet to achieve the feeling we are referring to. You just have to have two companies by your side for this said inspiration! 

One :: Your favorite organized NEAT girls of course and ...

Two :: One of our nearest and dearest partners, Luxury Garage Sale. If you don't already know this amazing company, well now is your chance.

Luxury bags, hermes scarves, luxury garage sale, berkin bags, celine bags, channel bags, beautiful scarves, luxury clothing, hottest fashion, consignment items, summer handbags, fall handbags, fashion inspiration

We recently had the honor of hosting a fabulous event with these lovely ladies and we can't tell you enough about why we all should be shopping there. The event was co-hosted by our Chicago team and one of LGS's most recent Pop-up shops in a suburb called, Hinsdale! The NEAT girls spent a day completely re-merchandising the store to make it feel as if you were walking into your very own closet. Their unique and individual pieces allowed for the guests to envision what their closet had the potential of looking like as well. From the organizing, to the actual merchandise, everyone was oooohhhing and aaaahhhhing!

Everything that Luxury Garage Sale has in their store is just that....LUXURY! However, they sell their items for a much more reasonable price then what you could buy them for otherwise. Hence, why you don't have to sacrifice luxury to have all the fancy clothes and accessories that your little heart desires. It should be noted that many of the items they sell are consignment items, but being the perfectionist that we are...we have to tell you that you would never know that many of these clothes have ever been worn.

If your one that already has the luxury wardrobe, but needs to make space for more amazingness...then they would be more than happy to help to consign your items as well. So, next time you feel you aren't able to have that luxury closet you've been dreaming of...take a moment to check out our work for inspiration or consign/shop all things LGS. We promise you, you will soon have a closet fit for a queen.
