The beneficiary of the NAPO-CT 2022 Summer Makeover Project was The Junkluggers of Fairfield/Westchester County, a NAPO-CT Business Partner and its 10,000 square foot warehouse, Remix Market

On Friday, July 8, 2022 a large contingency of National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals–Connecticut Chapter (NAPO-CT) members gathered in Stamford to transform The Junkluggers warehouse into a workable and shop-able environment for the Remix Market. What was needed was an efficient incoming/outgoing processing of the furniture and housewares, adequate signage to easily locate specific areas and a beautiful presentation to make the shopping experience enjoyable. The object was to create a shopping-friendly environment for the Remix customers. After a full 8-hour onsite workday, NAPO-CT members successfully reached their goal. Pictures are worth a thousand words.

The Junkluggers informed NAPO-CT that Remix Market increased sales during the month of August with a donation to Mikey’s Way Foundation of $10,000. Yipee! Such a success warms the organizers’ heart and makes our total effort worthwhile.

    A word from our President

    Many hands make light work

    Pre-team

    Of course, there is always some pre-work and behind-the-scene tasks before the organizing begins. A dedicated group of NAPO-CT organizers came together from all over the state to view, measure, strategize and diagram what would potentially happen on the makeover day as well as document the ‘before‘ with videos and photographs. A huge thank you to those who volunteered to oversee this massive project.

    Early morning preparations

    Tents erected in the parking area, tables opened and extra T-shirts distributed before the organizing began. Banker boxes were assembled and shelving constructed. All this required time and many helping hands before the ‘start‘ whistle blows.


    Many, many thanks

    Many thanks to Matt Baier, NAPO-CT Past President, owner of Matt Baier Organizing, and Chief Coordinator of the 2022 Summer Makeover Project. The camera caught Matt’s reflection in the mirror as he adjusted his hair after a long hot day at work.

    And, the complete makeover wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment, dedication and hard work of NAPO-CT members and Business Partners and the crew from The Junkluggers, Fairfield/Westchester who all worked together to not only transform the available space within the warehouse but create beauty and organization.

    And, yes, we achieved beauty and organization


    Many thanks to The Junkluggers for pitching in to purge, move furniture and help wherever they were needed. Teamwork!

    Many thanks to Pat Creedon, owner of Pat Creedon Design and a NAPO-CT Business Partner, for taking on the signage project from the front door ‘Welcome to Remix Market’ to the hanging ceiling signs that now direct customers to different areas within the warehouse.

    Many, many thanks to Bob Trimper, owner of Professional Hangups for taking time from his busy picture hanging business to secure the artwork and mirrors on the walls. We couldn’t have done it without you!
