Moving can be stressful. Whatever stage of life you’re at, the prospect of having to pack up your home can be scary, confronting or just plain annoying …. but it need not be. Uncluttered Living has worked with many householders to take the pain and stress out of moving. I can do a little or a lot; with you or for you. I can help you declutter before you move so you don’t waste time and money on moving items you don’t love and don’t need. I can source boxes, arrange storage and movers; even pack, unpack and put everything away so it’s accessible when you move in. As always, it’s your choice. Just ask. I also have great relationships with local contractors, so you’ll always get friendly and professional service.
Downsizing your family home can be extra-stressful. All those years. All those memories. All that stuff. The key is not to wait until ill health or a change in personal circumstances force your hand. Start early … and if it’s simply too overwhelming, let Uncluttered Living share the load. I’d love to work with you to set and meet timeframes for your downsize, develop a strategy to align your current possessions with your future life, and help you decide what precious items you want to take into the next phase of your life.
I’ve worked closely and compassionately with many clients moving into smaller homes or retirement living. I can do the hard work of decluttering, packing, organising removalists and contractors. I’ll work with you through what can be an emotional time, gently supporting and encouraging you to make mindful decisions about what you love and what you don’t. And once you’ve consolidated and organised your home and your possessions, I can also help you donate, dispose of or on-sell unwanted items.
I recently spoke to Sunday Mail journalist Hannah McDonald about how to downsize without tears, and provided some simple steps to help you begin your downsizing journey. Read the full article here.
