Holiday Downsize

It is hard to think about “keepsake holiday decorations” in the middle of a hot summer!

If you are planning to downsize or move (or are even just contemplating a move) in 2019, now is the perfect time to part with some of your decorations!

When Simplified Lives staff helps our client’s sort and organize for a move, we help identify the most memorable and precious holiday decorations. We help our clients think about decorating in a smaller space – we pack and move precious irreplaceable holiday decorations and mementos.

As you put up decorations this year, think about giving some of those decorations to family members and friends! What a perfect way to remember holidays with you!

And, as you pack up decorations after the holidays, we suggest you separate items into three categories:

1) “Have to move, irreplaceable”

2) May give away to family and friends, or donate

3) “To be reviewed” – and try to keep this stash as small as possible!

Good luck and Happy Holidays!
