It’s Always a Good Time to Downsize!

It’s really too hot and humid in the DMV to stay outside (unless you’re lying by the pool :-D!), so it’s a great time to get rid of all the unnecessary items that you just don’t want to take with you into the next season of your life.  Clutter simply weighs you down, so let’s lighten your life a little!

We’ve noticed that there are a number of Baby Boomers, like myself, who are downsizing, rather they are going to move now or not.  We are realizing that our children just don’t want our stuff, so why hold on to it?  Our young generations are more apt to move to find better opportunities, wherever life takes them.

Whatever your reason, it’s always a good time to downsize!

Currently, I’m working with a client on her entire home and yesterday, we were in the kitchen.

The Family Home is Just Too Big!

Some of us are transitioning into another phase of Living.  Some are considering retirement and others have already retired.  All the children grown, we are empty nesters, and  possibly the family home has just become much too big?   Maybe a smaller place with make more sense… No stairs, no lawn to mow, not as many rooms to clean!

In many cases, it’s been 25+ years in one house and we have accumulated a lifetime of stuff.  So now it is time for us to decide what we really want to keep and it may no longer be an issue of what “stuff” the children want.  Many of us are discovering that our children are not emotionally attached to the things that we hold dear.  So where do we begin? A professional organizer, like me, may be just the answer!

Well, something to think about???

A Rude Awakening…

As we get older, we have discovered that our children (to put it bluntly) really don’t want our cherished possessions. I have two daughters and I was saving my wedding dress, but guess what? … So even if you are not considering moving, you may want us to help you with those somewhat cluttered areas of your family home, i.e. basement, attic, storage unit, etc.
