Two weeks ago, our store basement was quite filthy and disorganized. Let us provide the back story on this mess.

We are normally very careful to clean, disinfect and sanitize our store and warehouse daily. However, our basement gets ignored many times because it’s only used for storage and does not see many human visitors at all.

Adam and Musa, our two warehouse experts, decided to finally clean and organize our basement because every time they went downstairs to get boxes or find packages, they could not help but notice the discrepancy between the spotless first floor with the overflowing clutter in the basement.

So, we gave them six hours and a stop watch. At first, Adam ventured downstairs but his confidence was soon deflated by the daunting cleaning task at hand. There were boxes and packages everywhere. Musa soon followed and gave Adam the confidence he needed to persist with this seemingly impossible (but truly necessary) task. The duo tackled each area of the basement separately and ultimately gained victory over the veritable mess.

Watch this video and let us know if you’ve ever been in this position where mindset, motivation and methodology overcome a daunting task, whether physical, emotional or otherwise.

We as human beings have an internal capacity to achieve what we set our minds to accomplish and we’re so thankful to have both Adam and Musa on our team to help with our cleanup efforts.

With Much Gratitude, Fahim & Seema Mojawalla, Co-Owners
