This Is How Much It Costs to Move Across the Country

By Geoff Williams

The final bill for your long-distance move depends on many factors, but expect to pay several thousand dollars.
If you’re preparing for a move across the country and researching what it costs, prepare for a lot of dollars to move out of your bank account.

But if you have expensive dishes, a lot of sentimental knickknacks, electronics, appliances and other fragile or irreplaceable items, a professional packer might be worth the cost. Nicole Gabai, a professional organizer, favors paying for packing and unpacking. “I found that with many of the moves I’ve done, the upcharge was minimal compared to the cost of the overall move – and totally worth it to remove all the boxes and packing material all at once,” says Gabai, who is based in East Falmouth, Massachusetts, and founded B. Organized, a virtual professional organizing service. Read more on U.S. News & World Report >

By Rebecca Strong

The percentage of Americans working from home more than tripled between 2019 and 2021 alone. It certainly has its perks—like skipping the commute and staying in your comfy clothes—but it can also have its pitfalls, too. Namely, it’s harder to be productive when working from home if your cat is climbing all over your desk, your spouse keeps barging into the room, or you spot some dishes in the sink that need to be washed.

Make sure all the tools you need to get your work done are within reaching distance. According to Nicole Gabai, founder of B. Organized, and the author of The Art of Organizing, this is one of the easiest ways to maintain productivity while working from home. Read more on Best Life >

8 Tips for Decluttering Before a Big Move

article AARPAARP
By Jodi Helmer

Take an organized approach. It might be tempting to declutter a few drawers in the kitchen, a closet in the bedroom and a corner in the garage. But professional organizer Nicole Gabai, the founder of B. Organized and author of The Art of Organizing: An Artful Guide to an Organized Life, suggests finishing a single room before moving on to the next space.

“The benefit of tackling one room at a time is that you can better evaluate completion,” she says. “You can clearly look around that one room and double-check that you have gotten rid of everything you possibly can from that one room before moving on to the next.”  Read more on AARP >

10 Ways to Make Moving Easier: Simplify the Moving Process

By Andreea Draguleasa

In the hustle and bustle of moving day, organization and planning – and your own inventory list – come to the rescue. A case in point is when Nicole Gabai, CEO of B. Organized, assisted a client named Danielle with her transition from a large house in Vermont to a smaller apartment in New York.

“She hired a moving company to pack up her whole house, and we carefully instructed them to put in large print on the top of each box where it should go,” said Gabai. “This way, the heavy book boxes wouldn’t have to be dragged around from room to room, and since we had already decided where the bookcase would go, this was really helpful. We did something similar for every room in the apartment.” Read more on SpareFoot >

By Nor’adila Hepburn

If you’re looking for a way to keep your belongings organized and protected from mildew, mold, odors, or dust while in storage, sealing them in a vacuum storage bag is one of the best ways to achieve this.

“Vacuum storage bags are great for keeping your things organized because you are compressing your belongings into a smaller space so you can free up valuable storage space in your home, luggage, or closet,” says Nicole Gabai, the founder of B. Organized, and the author of the bestseller The Art of Organizing: An Artful Guide to an Organized Life. “Typically, they come in four or five different sizes and can hold sweaters, blankets…or any other bulky fabrics.

7 Rules for Shopping at Target, According to Pro Organizers

By Lauren Brown West-Rosenthal

Before you even head into the store, Nicole Gabai, founder of B. Organized and author of The Art of Organizing, says it’s smart to plan ahead. “For example, it’s never a good idea to buy, say, a bookcase first and then try to retrofit all the books into it,” she explains. “People often say, ‘I bought all these great organizing and storage containers. I don’t know why I can’t get organized!’ Well, the problem with this approach is that no matter how attractive or functional your storage containers are, they won’t help you get organized unless they’re the right containers for your specific needs.”   Read more on the kitchn >

Nicole Gabai, author of The Art of Organizing and Golden Circle member at B. Organized, suggests purchasing placemats and napkins from Target. These items are versatile and add a unique aesthetic to the common areas of your home. “Transform the appearance of your kitchen or dining area with these simple additions. Choose a color or theme that appeals to you and incorporate it into your decor,” Gabai said.

“For a pop of color, opt for rectangular paper napkins instead of standard square napkins in unique patterns. These napkins are often used in powder rooms for hand drying and add a touch of elegance or whimsy to your dining table when paired with new placemats.” Read more on the GoBankingRates >

We also talked with a professional organizer Nicole Gabai on the subject of proactivity. Based on her experience, being organized is a key strategy for being more proactive in life:

“When you are organized, you can stop living life reactively, driven by each little crisis, and instead take a more proactive, intentional approach to directing your own life. I’ve found that getting organized clears your mind so you can get on to the more important things in your life and spend more time doing what you really want to do.”  Read more on Clockify >

Often, when trying to fit a lot into a tiny area, it can be tricky to see everything in one glance, so zones can help you locate approximately what you need and then dig through for the exact item, explains Nicole Gabai, professional organizer and founder of B. Organized.

‘When you have a small closet, you might think it’s too small for everything you have, but that’s not always the case. Establishing zones and using the right storage products are great ways to help you keep things nice and tidy.” Read more on Homes and Gardens >
