More Behind-the-Scenes Information: Julie Morgenstern, author of Organizing from the Inside Out , helped Nate keep Oprah's belongings organized and easily retrievable while in storage. How'd she do it?
Julie divided the room and its contents into zones: bookshelves, picture frames, desk contents, etc. Each zone was given a different colored sticker.
Before anything was packed, Julie took two photos. Every box was labeled with a zone sticker and picture of what was inside.
The second photo went into a "catalogue": a binder to keep track of what you have and where it is!
