Are you one of the 42% of Baby Boomers who are thinking about downsizing their home? Are you doing a lot of “thinking,” because the actions required to downsize are so overwhelming and you don’t know where to start?

Houses aren’t just filled with our belongings, they are filled with our memories, treasured traditions, reliable routines and family folklore. How can a person move from “thinking” to “doing” the job of downsizing 3,000 sq ft of stuff to fit inside something half as big? Or less?!

I understand and have great compassion for your worries! My clients are often relieved to have found someone who will walk them through the downsizing process and provide a framework for the tasks. Allow me to suggest you start in the least emotional space.
