It’s spring in the Triangle and that means many of my clients are on the move (downsizing, upsizing or rightsizing…it all involves organization)! And even if you’re staying put, you may be feeling inspired to clear out the clutter that has accumulated over the winter. I wanted to share a list of services we offer to help you with this process, as well as some of my favorite clutter-busting resources. Enjoy!
What We Do!
*Full home assessment of each space in your current home, deciding what is to be moved, what needs to be sorted and discarded, and help with selling or donating unwanted goods.
*A plethora of resources for discarding, selling, or consigning goods that no longer serve you and putting those items in the hands of those who can use them (see our favorite picks on the back!).
*Floor plan design for your new space so decisions can be made regarding furniture placement, storage, and space utilization.
*A gentle hand (but with some tough love and reminders of the goal at hand!) when making decisions related to memorabilia, furniture, paper, household goods, clothing, etc.
*Assistance with packing items to be moved personally to your new home (e.g. fine china, jewelry, silver, vital documents, etc.)
*Assistance with shipping or moving items to be given to loved ones.
*Referrals to local, reputable moving companies who can assist with packing and moving
*Help unpacking and setting up your new home and working to create organizational systems that work for you.
