Downsizing

Do any of the following apply to you?

  • overwhelmed about cleaning up

  • feeling like your home isn't big enough

  • planning to move

  • inability to focus and relax at home

  • having trouble finding things

  • dread of looking inside certain rooms/closets in your home

 

Throughout our lives we acquire.  Some of this is from our own purchases, whether essential or nonessential.  Some of this is from things given to us, whether desired or not.  Living with other people adds more complexity and more things.  We all have reasons for the build up of things.   

We will never judge you.  We only want to help!

Having things is okay, but all too often the things inside our home make us feel overwhelmed and complicate our lives.  At MG Home Organizing, we understand that some belongings are very special, but we have methods for sifting out what is not.

Whole Home

Have a lifetime of mass accumulation?  This kind of downsizing takes a little time but we move at your comfort level and yield results that obstacles keep you from reaching on your own.

Services include:

  • Grouping items so we can understand the totality of what you own

  • Helping you evaluate what is meaningful and useful to you

  • Taking items to charities and providing you with receipts

  • Offering suggestions on what you can do between sessions to keep things moving along if you feel comfortable

  • Tips on how to move forward in order to prevent a similar situation in the future

Single Room

Is there one room that ends up holding everything that you don't use on a day-to-day basis?  This could be a basement, crawl space, garage, guest room, etc.  It might be that the rest of your home functions well, but you need help working through that one (or two) rooms that is your dumping ground.

Services include:

  • Grouping items so you understand the totality of what is in that room

  • Helping you evaluate what is meaningful and useful to you

  • Taking items to charities and providing you with receipts

  • Tips on how to move forward to prevent a similar situation in the future

Consultation

Do you want to do most or all of the sorting and removal of items on your own but just don't know where to begin?  This might be an option for you.

Services include:

  • Showing you my methods of grouping and sorting

  • Teaching you my questions to ask yourself as you decide what to keep and what to let go of

  • Providing you with resources of charities and types of items taken

  • Suggestions on how to store items that you decide to keep

Removal Only

Do you just need help removing items from your home?  This may be bags of clothing, household items, or that couch in the basement.  This service is highly convenient for those with limited time to take care of items, those with limited strength and/or mobility or those unable to drive their items to appropriate charities.

Services include:

  • Pick up of household items and drop off to an appropriate charity 

  • Scheduling of a professional "junk removal" company so your items can be discarded or donated of properly
