Class Overview

Get it Together: Organizing Your Home & Office - The Highly Efficient Home | Seattle Central College - Continuing Education

Do you have one of those seemingly-bottomless junk drawers in your kitchen?

Is there a closet in your house that could double as a live-action Tetris game?

Do you use your garage to actually park your car, or is it just filled with too much stuff?

If you answered yes to any of these, then join us for this fun workshop on improving your home's organization.

During this class, we'll:

  • Cover techniques to use space effectively
  • Determine if there are items to let go
  • Consider storage strategies

While we'll focus primarily on the kitchen, closets, and garage, we will have time to explore strategies for other spaces around the house, too.

And you can take what you learn here to the supply closet at work!

Learning Outcomes

During this class, you'll learn how to:

  • Sort anything from your spices to your beans
  • Determine when keeping multiples of items might be okay
  • Re-home and release items that are no longer useful
  • Quickly find some extra storage space in your most active areas
