MAINTENANCE

                          We've set the stage for a joyful, productive life.

    As decluttering is not a one-time affair,

    regular check-ins are helpful. I’m here to help

    you maintain your calm and your papers when

    things get out of hand. Not to worry, it happens.

    I'll be there as often as it takes to keep you on                    track, so you can leave your legacy, not a mess

 

Yes, it can be hard work and emotionally taxing; it can also be fun and nostalgic with a little “Do I have to go through this?” mixed in. It takes commitment to follow through and to be accountable. The calm will come.
