Less is definitely better!

Are you downsizing to a smaller home, moving to a retirement community or simply overwhelmed by all your stuff?

Retirement/Downscaling Tips

So here we are again! In the last couple of weeks I have been working with an elderly couple as they downscale and move from their lovely family home of 30 years to a one bedroom apartment in a retirement complex.
