About the Event

The most commonly used word to describe the downsizing process is “overwhelm”.  In fact, many people find themselves paralyzed by even the idea of moving to a smaller or more manageable space.

The good news is that there are people, strategies, and services that can make the downsizing process much simpler and far more manageable!

Discover simple strategies for getting started, how to hire the right help, and what to do with all that “stuff.”

If you are considering a move today, a year from now, or anytime in your future, this seminar is designed to help remove the overwhelm and inspire you to take action — even if it’s just a small action!

If you are considering making a move – now or in your future – you owe it to yourself to be prepared.  Join us for this free seminar and learn how you can improve your life by following these simple downsizing strategies.  Expert panelists will share insights, tips, and secrets to effectively downsize your household.  What’s valuable and what’s not?  What are my options in getting rid of years of accumulation?  Find out how to make this process manageable for you!  “Simplifying your Life should leave you overjoyed, not overwhelmed.”
