Wow, it's been quite a month here at A BETTER SPACE. I have had the pleasure of working with some new clients and continuing projects with existing clients as well as doing a vendor event at a Senior Activity Center and an interview that will air on You Tube next month where I discuss time management tools. (Stay tuned for details coming soon!)
My latest project was to work with a client who is relocating out of state and needed to declutter her basement. She had lived in her home for the past 8 years. We spent two days going through her basement and determining what to keep for herself, what to give to family members, what to sell at an upcoming garage sale and what was trash.
The basement had not had much attention in the past and some of the boxes we identified had not been opened the entire time she had lived in this house. They came with her 8 years ago and were never looked at again, until now. (This is more common than you think.) The basement was filled with cobwebs and dead bugs as can be common in many unfinished basements.
I am happy to report that after two days, the basement is now decluttered, the trash is ready for pick-up and my client feels so much better after getting through a project that was too overwhelming for her to tackle on her own. She has now identified what she can sell at her upcoming garage sale and looks forward to making some money to put towards her moving expenses. She is now able to sleep better at night knowing that her basement went from "Spooky" to "Spooktacular" in just a matter of two days.
Fall is a great time of year to eliminate the clutter in your home. Think about how much better you would feel if you were able to eliminate what you no longer need or want, whether it is by throwing things away, donating them to a local charity, passing items onto family members who would enjoy them or selling them at a garage sale or perhaps online.
Imagine how good you will feel when you turn your home from "Spooky" to "Spooktacular" before Halloween! Pick a room in your home to work on and get started now!
If you need any assistance in getting past your feeling of overwhelm and want to get that project done once and for all, don't hesitate to contact me. As always, I am here to help and I would love nothing more than to help you make your home "Spooktacular"!
