Shelly and Rob Miller have a growing problem in their home — in addition to their three boys, Zach, 6, Noah, 5, and Nicholas, 2. The 16 x 20-foot bedroom of the two eldest boys should be a little boy's dream, but instead it's a room with no closet, an abundance of clothes, family photos and a couch doubling as a file cabinet. And let's not forget all the toys scattered throughout.
Expert organizer Jennifer Pacifico comes to the Millers' aid, agreeing to help them reclaim the space, once and for all. She starts by helping them sort through all that clutter, starting with the clothes and toys, then finishing with the "filing" couch. Once the space is cleared, she reveals her organizational plan.
Pacifico wants to replace the boys' dressers and desk with a larger, more functional armoire and move the couch into the living room. In its place will be two bookcases, a table and chair set, as well as toy cubbies with bins for more toys.
A filing system will also be added to house all the loose files and photos that were scattered all over the couch. New beds with drawer space underneath will also provide more storage, something Pacifico says is a must. She also suggests a new, light-blue color for the walls and a matching denim fabric for the window treatments.
