Episode Summary

So Many Books, So Little Storage
Peter and Sarah Rutenberg have been married for 31 years and have two kids: Meg and Arie. Their bedroom is filled with books and piles of stuff, while the guest room / office is so full of clutter that it simply has no purpose. Peter is fed up with it and organizer Shelli Alexander is there to help out. She shows them how to deal with the clutter, particularly the books, by explaining that if they part with what they're not using they'll have room to grow later. Angelo Surmelis redesigns the guest room / office with a denim color scheme and a trundle bed. A new desk is added and the closet is reorganized to accommodate both office needs and those of the guests. The bedroom is given bookshelves and a special build by Eric for new books. A new desk and a seating area are also added.moreless
