Once “bursting at the seams,” the small San Francisco reach-in closet of mothermag.com co-founder Katie Hintz-Zambrano needed taming—and tidying. With the help of organization expert Marie Kondo, Hintz-Zambrano first decluttered by paring down items to those that gave her joy.

In the closet, clear boundaries delineate Hintz-Zambrano’s items from those belonging to her husband, Horacio, and pull-out accessory trays ensure jewelry, watches, and rings stay organized. Shelves above keep shoes in sight and in reach. “We even have a landing dock where we place items that spark joy,” says Hintz-Zambrano, “including a picture of our son, flowers, and a hook for Horacio’s keys.”
