Sponsor A Space’s First Project

Our very first Sponsor A Space Organizing Project was a total success!

We transformed an overflowing closet into a multi-functional pantry and storage area.

We had a lot of fun working side-by-side with this busy, single mom with special needs kids.

She had a high-risk allergen containment problem, and she needed a specialized pantry system to maximize her main storage space for seasonal items.

Sponsor A Space Inaugural Organizing Project!


What did we do?

Apartments do not often have a lot of storage, so all storage solutions had to be easily removable.

Our mission: Maximize this primary storage space.

What started as a cluttered and chaotic closet transformed into a multi-functional space to contain a pantry, seasonal decor, car care items, sentimental items, and more!

Our main goals were:

  1. Create an easy-to-follow pantry system.
  2. Create a separate space for one child’s safe foods.
  3. Store seasonal and other miscellaneous items.
