Following our recent blog about decor and storage, I thought you might like to see some of the storage items I have incorporated into my own home. When I mention storage to my clients it often has the connotation of plastic boxes stored in the garage with things never to be seen again. However you can see this is not the case, with a little imagination you can transform items taking up valuable space, into decorator and art pieces which are stored and enhance your home. I can work with you to achieve these features into your home decor, and release valuable space for other items.

Many years ago, my mother in law was wondering what to do with all the memorabilia she was collecting and asked “what should she do with all this stuff ?” Our friend suggested starting up a Visual Diary. So, she purchased an A3 book with blank pages and sorted through her collection, pasting in the most valuable items and discarding the rest.
She has continued this process throughout the years, saving everything from childrens’ paintings, wedding invitations and funeral services. This is a great way to preserve family history, instead of it languishing in a bottom draw. Going through the books with her grandchildren on a rainy day has also been great entertainment, for all of them.
Trying to explain to my kids how a “a mullet haircut” from the 1980s could have been a popular look, is another thing.
This is just one example of the “family memorabilia” service offered by all sorted out.
Please contact us to arrange your family’s memorabilia so it keeps on keeping on.
“I’ll never move again”, wailed a friend at her new abode when it looked like this photo, weeks after moving in.
Moving is a daunting task. The amount of “stuff” we accumulate is terrifying. If you literally don’t know where to begin contact us at ‘all sorted out’. Before the move we work with you to sort and cull whatever has taken over your cupboards and drawers. Within hours we will have things sorted in piles: keep & pack it – with a tag on it as to which room it should go to in the new location, sell it – to an auction house or on ebay, move it to grandma’s garage temporarily, give it to charity or skip-bin it. This way you only move what you need, dispensing with the excess stuff that shouldn’t move with you. We will inspire you and have you up and organised in no time.
We assist you to move seamlessly into the new home by helping decide where to place furniture so a great floor plan is created with a place for everything, without it being everywhere. Moving or just wanting to get organised at home, you’re welcome to contact all sorted out on 0438291568

At all sorted out our expertise includes using your own furniture and knick knacks to the greatest advantage, whether you are selling your home or just wanting a new look. I wandered around the house and took some photos to illustrate what can be achieved
Inspiration for ideas such as these can come in many forms. Examples from my own home form unique moments in the life of both my family and myself by simply adding a piece of ribbon or by giving them a quick clean. These pieces a new lease on life, which mean they are out on display being enjoyed rather than living dusty lives as clutter on a top shelf in a cupboard.
We will help you achieve this look in your own home whether you want a mini makeover or you are planning to sell your home. Our expertise allows you to use your own objects and memorabilia to style your home

A simple chemical reaction causes tarnish to disappear naturally. Place sterling or plated silver in sink lined with aluminium foil (essential). Sprinkle 1/2 to 1 cup baking soda over the silverware. Pour in enough boiling water to cover the utensils. When the tarnish disappears, remove the silverware, and buff with a soft cotton cloth.
Start Wrapping Early
Say goodbye to Christmas chaos this year. Follow these simple gift-wrapping strategies to give family and friends one-of-a-kind packages this holidayAvoid a gift-wrapping timeand start wrapping gifts as you buy them. Add ribbons, bows, and tags later. Label presents with sticky notes so that you don’t forget who gets what.
Store Supplies in a Gift Wrap Bin
Don’t let gift wrap from previous holidays get lost in closets, the bottoms of drawers, and other obscure locations. Keep your tissue paper, twine, and wrapping paper organized and accessible in a single bin (one that’s large enough to accommodate wrapping-paper rolls); place smaller bins filled with labels and tags inside.
After-Christmas sales are the perfect time to stock up on paper and trimmings for the following year.
Recycled Gift Wrap
Don’t toss away all the wrapping paper and ribbon that once covered other gifts. Instead, run it through a shredder (cut to size first, if needed) and use it for lining gift boxes or bags.
Brown Paper Gift Wrap
Use brown paper for an attractive yet sturdy wrapping. Once wrapped, add special trimmings and gift tags to your package.
Make Your Own Gift Tags
Make unique gift tags by cutting out designs or whole scenes using a decorative craft punch.…
