How do we "downsize" our home when Clutter is stopping us in our tracks?

Posted on November 7, 2010 at 6:58 PM

There comes a time in many of our lives where we are faced with having to move to a smaller home.

 

If we are moving to assisted living, we are plagued with a very daunting task, as it is probably the biggest transition there is. We face having to stuff a whole life worth of memories and belongings into a small apartment or a 20' x 20' space.

 

When we move into assisted living, we are now forced to make very emotionally charged decisions regarding which of our memories and belongings are THE most important to us.

 

How much of our "stuff" can we take with us?

 

Do we need to consider the additional cost of renting storage solutions on top of our monthly costs?

 

If we need to part with a large portion of our "stuff", do we have family members or friends who can use these items?

 

How do we feel about donating some of our "stuff" to a charity of our choice?

 

Do I have to part with some valuable things, and how do I sell them?

 

These are all issues that many of us don't have the time or energy to deal with, on top of all of the other mounting tasks of moving to a smaller home.

 

Many people don't have the benefit of having family or friends close by to help out.

 

We are here to let you know that you don't have to do all of this alone. We offer many solutions to our clients who need a helping hand when it comes to their "stuff".

 

We will de-clutter for you, sort for you, help you determine which charity you would like to donate items to, arrange for delivery or pick-up of items for family and/or friends, pack for you, and help you determine which items will go with you to your new home.

 

Let us help take a load off for you! ;)
