Plan to surround yourself with things you love and treasure. We don't own anything forever, we're just caretakers!

Get rid of obvious garbage. Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Pass along items you no longer want, use or need. The lucky recipients can be family, friends or your favourite charity!

Remember the heavier the box, the higher the risk of damage to items in transit.

Now you're ready to enjoy your new home!

Everyone is talking about simplifying, organizing and downsizing. The best time to do all of this is BEFORE you move, not after you move. Here's what we're hearing...

"I want to move, but I don't know where to begin."
"What do I do with all the stuff my family and I don't want?"
"There's so much to do and so little time to get it done before Move Day!"
"Moving? Am I doing the right thing?"

Moving for seniors is often accompanied by feelings of excitement, guilt and anxiety. Just the thought of going through years of accumulated treasures, downsizing and getting organized, causes people to become... OVERWHELMED!

No doubt about it, moving for seniors is stressful. Whether you're moving for the first time or the fifteenth time, moving across town or moving around the world, the Diva can help. We'll plan and organize your move, sort and downsize your stuff and take care of all the details to reduce the work and worry for everyone involved.

With Downsizing Diva, you will have some fun and enjoy the downsizing and moving process as much as the move itself!
