Start in a room you use the least and don't move to another area until you have made a decision on everything in that room. Ask yourself: Do I use it? Do I absolutely love it? Do I need it? Does it bring value to my life? If an item makes you happy and adds value to your life then take it with you. Otherwise put it in a sell, donate or a family box.
For a big project or move, the first thing you should do is set up a binder with sections so everything is always in one place.
When sorting paperwork, use the OHIO rule (Only Handle It Once). Start with one handful of paperwork at a tme and sort into these categories: Take Action, Memorabilia/Keep, Reading/Research, Shred/Recycle, or File.
* Without your support, amazing organizational skills, knowledge, wisdom and hard work, we would not have been able to complete this move. Libby H.
* We love our apartment and the work you did to make it lovely. You made it all so easy. Olive M.
* What an amazing job you did...it seemed rather magical to have everything in place, even the tasteful hanging of our paintings and all by dinner time. You turned the moving process into an art form! Flora L.
* Do you need to start packing when you decide to move?
NO!! It is better to let the movers do the packing. They are very detailed when they pack a box making it easier to unpack at the other end. They also cannot insure a box that is packed by the client.
