Basement flooding – a bit of a silver lining

Here’s an email I received from one of our wonderful clients

“Hope you are having a great summer . Here is something to add to your blog and organizational savy-ness: best reason to have an organized basement, when your whole basement floods you are very happy to have it all organized in waterproof tubs that can easily be moved to another location and nothing is wrecked. Plus very minimum damage to household items.

We flooded twice … And I have had to rip out entire basement, thanks to our organization of items, at least that part has not been difficult and I did not lose many personal items.”

Thanks L for sending me this email – I’ve been thinking about you so much and hope the renovations are underway. We actually have a few other clients who are in a similar situation – so sorry that you’re going through this and I’m so happy we used the air tight containers!
