Downsizing WorkshopSenior downsizing expert Kirsten Awe, Three Pea professional organizer and expert on senior moves, was at KMH in late July to give tips and tricks for de-cluttering and organizing your home. She gave guidance on how to tackle such a big job by starting small, recruiting help, and dividing-and-conquering. Ms. Awe shared with the group how downsizing and being organized isn't about getting rid of "stuff", it's about prioritizing what you use, need, want and love- saying "yes" to the cherished items and "no" to the things that drag you down.
