Episode Summary

Out of the Clutter
Maria Lopez and Richard Scarry are the managers of Out of the Closet --- a thrift-store that raises money for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. They're dedicated workers, but the way things are set up now is hampering the effectiveness of their business. Their receiving room is overflowing with clothing, old lamps, a covered picnic table, toys and more. The setup is so bad that people have been breaking in and dumpster-diving. Meanwhile, the sorting area is a defeating space loaded with boxes, old coathangers and various clutter that can only be described as "bric-a-brac." Peter Walsh comes in to help Maria and Richard get a system together to deal with all the donations. He shows them how an efficient system can benefit both them and their volunteers. Angelo Surmelis does the redesign of the areas. The receiving room receives a foldout desk with hidden space for storage, covered doors and siding, storage cabinets and drawers. It's also set up for locking to prevent theft. The storage room contains sorting tables, lockers, clothes hangers racks, a storage cabinet with categorized bins and "groovy" lighting.moreless
