Living a full life often leads to owning more than what we need. But scaling back doesn’t have to be painful! We simply need to take our time and focus on what matters most.
I encourage you to keep a reasonable quantity of
what is practical
what is useful
what you love the most now
How do we end up owning too much? In a word: life! And then things change, Our children grow up and move out. Relationships end when we part ways, whether due to divorce or death. Health issues arise that can be life-threatening. Our journey as we have known it has come to a fork in the road!
Now what? It’s time for a change! When we start with the physical things around us, we start to feel space opening not only in our homes but in our minds and hearts as well. This is the essence of space clearing! Honoring the past, accepting our present while designing our future.

I’ve also completed extensive Senior Move Manager® training with the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM). This means I understand the challenges when older adults need to downsize and transition to a smaller space.
