Save 55 Minutes A Day This Holiday Season

Sponsored Content provided by Fred Kumpel - Owner, Strickland’s Blinds, Shades & Shutters/Strickland’s Closets & Home Organization

How many times have you found yourself in the following situation?
 
Over the course of a week, everything in your house - mail, bills, kids’ toys, backpacks, purses - has found its way on top of your counters, tables and desks. You spend at least half an hour searching for your keys, your wallet or the homework your son swears he left right there on the counter.

Take comfort - it’s not just you! And it’s not the amount of stuff you own, either.

Research shows that the average American spends 55 minutes a day searching for misplaced items around the house. We wouldn’t be looking for them if we didn’t need them, suggesting that ours is not a problem of overabundance, but rather a lack of efficient, practical storage.

When we talk about storage, we don’t mean those Rubbermaid tubs you keep in the garage labeled “Christmas Decorations,” or that one extra-deep desk drawer you pretend doesn’t exist.

A storage cabinet is only useful if it’s something you don’t dread opening. It should be attractive, functional and the right size and shape to fit its contents. Strickland’s offers a wide variety of home storage solutions to help you organize your life. From garage cabinets to office storage compartments to kids’ and craft room cabinets, we have it all, and it’s custom-designed for your individual needs.
 
Good examples are the home office or craft room. The more cluttered your workspace is, the harder it is to get anything accomplished, whether it’s a budget spreadsheet or a scrapbook.

The ideal solution will fit your lifestyle and space accommodations and be designed in a way that makes sense to you. For example, a stand-alone, counter-height island, with open access from all sides gives you room to spread out while providing extra storage for tools or gift wrap.  Easy access to all your gift wrapping supplies, neatly stored in one place, means more time in your day and more room for creativity. 

Now there’s something to be merry about!

With the holiday season approaching, couldn’t you use an extra hour in your day? Stop by Strickland’s new showroom on Oleander Drive, next to K38 Baja Grill, to find out how our organization systems can help.
