Downsizing for Mid-Michigan Seniors Preparing for a Move

Downsizing can be difficult for anyone, but after a lifetime of accumulating treasured items, paperwork, clothing and more, packing for a move can be an overwhelming task for many mid-Michigan seniors.

Our best advice is start small - focus not only on one closet, but one item - for example, winter coats. If you haven't worn the item this past winter, is it likely you'll wear it next winter? If not, consider making a donation. Goodwill Industries has a convenient drive-thru donation procedure - they'll unload your donations from your vehicle and provide you with a receipt for your taxes.

If you or your loved one needs help organizing and reducing clutter, paperwork or sorting, packing and making donations of unwanted items, give us a call for a free estimate.
