We are packing and packing and packing. And then we look around — and nothing’s packed.
It’s amazing how much
crap er stuff one collects in just 13 years. In less than 1500 square feet. I’m throwing out tons. And giving tons away. But there’s still so much stuff!
Wouldn’t it be lovely if someone would come in and take care of all this for me?
Like Christine Smart of Designing Moves.
According to this article, she is just the sort of person who will take care of all those tedious details, like she did for the Thorpes of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
She dove right in, arranging an auction, handling online sales on craigslist and eBay, and donating to charities. Ms. Smart also oversaw move-related details, such as cataloging items, space planning, packing, shipping and unpacking.
People in their senior years (ahem!) are downsizing from large homes to small. There is such a need for people who help the downsizers adapt to their new life that there’s a National Association of Senior Move Managers.
Give me a few days and I will be on the phone to get their help.
