5 excuses I hear every day

“I can’t let that go!” A refrain we hear every time we work with clients who are downsizing. And when I ask why there is always a VERY GOOD REASON why they can’t let go. But the reasons are really just excuses for not being able to let go!

Preparing for Retirement Home

Are you thinking about a retirement home for yourself, your parents or an elderly member of your family or circle? Have you given some thought around what different homes offer and provide?

What do your children want?

So often when working with my Senior clients sorting and downsizing, I hear the words “I can’t let that go, I am keeping it for my children/ grandchildren one day”. And so the pile grows and grows…

Please don’t leave me your clutter!

Please don’t leave me your clutter!

A few month’s ago I worked with a young woman who had lost her mom, and needed to clear out her home. She had called me in as her time was limited, and she needed to get the house sorted as quickly as possible. Even though she had visited her mom on a weekly basis, and been inside her home regularly, she was not prepared for the onslaught of stuff in cupboards, under beds, in boxes in top cupboards and the garage, along with paperwork and memorabilia in all corners of her mom’s home.

Decided to sell your house? Now what?

Decided to sell your house? Now what?

I am working with a couple who have made the decision to make their last move into a small retirement home. Over 28 years they have filled their large family home to the brim. It is a daunting task, and they called me in to help get their home ready to sell. It is a lovely home, with lots of light, and lots of space, but completely lost under all the stuff. So, armed with a plan, along with boxes, bags, bins and a large van to fill with recycling and donations, we are moving mountains (well almost!)

Help! Mom and Dad are moving

Help! Mom and Dad are moving

My parents moved into a retirement home 4 years ago and settled in really well. We were lucky that they were ready for the change. We were lucky that they had moved many times in their 60 years together. We were lucky that each time they moved, they sorted and let go anything they no longer needed or loved. We were lucky (believe it or not) that they believe in buying the best they could afford, making things last, reusing and repurposing items in their home.

Moving house is a stressful time! So once you have made the decision to move, take time to think about everything that needs to get done before the moving truck arrives. Make lists and have a schedule of all the things that need doing and by when. To help you with this process here is a schedule I share with clients to help them make this transition as easy as possible.

Organised kitchen, happy cook!

Do you spend a lot of time in your kitchen?

Is it organised?

Can you find what you need?

Would you like a more organised kitchen?

Why? You ask…

Why Overwhelmed Seniors are Disorganised

Here we are again working with an elderly couple who are downsizing from their family home to a retirement bedsit. The family are completely taken aback at how disorganised they are, how much stuff there is and how difficult it is for them to let go. This is not unique! We see this time and again when assisting Seniors with a move or simple declutter. With that in mind, I thought this was worth sharing again!
