The Organized Move

Moving/downsizing

Moving can be exciting but also challenging. Moving and downsizing...even more so! I know this all to well because I just did both this past summer. As a Senior Move Manager and Professional Organizer I was able to put my own skills to work for myself and it all went quite smoothly!

These are the steps I can help you with:

  1. Sort your belongings at your current home so that they get packed and placed properly in your new home
        - This is a big step, but how nice it is to move into a new place with only the things you want/need AND to know where all those boxes go!
  2. Simultaneously pass on or throw away unwanted items
        - If this step sounds tough because you have difficulty parting with things, I can help you through that aspect as well. See certification details above.
  3. Organize and sort childrens' rooms
        - I have worked with children in their rooms and have been pleased with how receptive they can be and with the progress they have made.
  4. Create an efficient, easy-to-use filing system
        - You won't need to move any piles of paper and once settled, all you'll need to do is maintain the system.
  5. Determine possible storage areas for items you want to keep but don't have space for if you are downsizing
        - I had to do this and there are a couple different options to consider.
  6. Maintenance of a daily/weekly "to do" list throughout the moving process
        - This is key!
  7. Assist with miscellaneous details such as; address changes, utility notifications, locksmith appointment, bulky trash pickup, donation of items.

Whatever your circumstances and challenges may be, you will find true value in hiring me to help you get and stay organized! Keep me in mind for relatives and friends who might benefit as well. Call or email me for a free telephone consultation. References available upon request
