It's True! You Can Take the Girl Out of the South, but....
You Can't Take the South Out of the Girl!!!
We have returned from our much anticipated trip to the South and we can't express enough how grateful we are for this experience! Savannah, Tennessee...you are officially the nicest town on the planet!
When Manpacks first asked if we wanted to be a part of their Better Man contest, of course we were thrilled, but to end up with the location and the winner that we did, was a true blessing! However, we would be lying if we didn't say we were a little worried for figuring out the logistics of this project. It's not everyday that the NEAT Method girls aren't near a Container Store!
You see, typically we go into a home, organize the space and then take all of the necessary measurements, counts, space planning ideas and then head to a store that has all of the containers/storage solutions that we could possibly need. In this case, we did it all backwards since the nearest Container Store was two hours away. We picked our favorite storage solutions and crossed our fingers. Overall, we think the results were pretty dang good (if we do say so ourselves!)
Blair's wife's closet needed some help, especially in the shoe department.
We stored all of her winter shoes and then added some great racks and baskets for the rest.
This large dresser was a "catch all" for various items.
We decided that it would make the perfect place for accessorites and jeans.
Blair's closet also had a minor shoe problem.
The best solution was an over the door shoe hanger with some great color coordination of the clothes.
This beautiful shelf was used for cookbooks that were in disarray.
Just a little magic touch from NEAT :)
Consider choosing the best set and donating the rest!
These spices were a little out of control.
After discarding expired spices and combining doubles, this spice shelf was ready to go!
Any finally the ever familiar kitchen pantry!
By moving all children's snacks down and dry foods for cooking higher up, this pantry became a true beauty!
Still haven't had enough of our trip? Check out this video interview of our winner, Blair!
