Most Senior Move Managers® and Professional Organizers hear a similar refrain from new clients: “We just don’t know where to start!”. While you may be tempted to climb into the attic or dive down to the basement first, we’re here to tell you there is a better way.
We’ve found one of the easiest ways to make an accurate floor plan is to use the “paper doll” method, where you make the room and your furnishings out of graph paper. It’s a little time-consuming, but you can do it yourself pretty easily with these pro tips and free download-able tools.
One of the upsides of downsizing is the opportunity to upgrade your furnishings and accessories. A consultation with a professional interior designer can provide the advice and direction you need to make your new home beautiful, functional and safe.
We hear from our clients that dealing with photo albums, scrapbooks, loose photos and various types of video tape devices can feel like an insurmountable challenge.
With some planning and commitment, you can have peace of mind that you’ve preserved a complete and curated collection that documents your family, loved ones, milestones, history, and adventures
FairSplit is a proprietary software that was originally designed to simplify the estate settlement process. We’ve noticed, however, that Professional Organizers and Senior Move Managers® have also been using the FairSplit system to downsize and manage their clients’ belongings.
