Staging & Renovation
Change is hard and transitions in our home can pose real challenges in how we live an organized life. Homes that are staged sell for 30% more so utilizing professional organizing services can have a significant impact. Whether you are renovating your home to stay or staging/preparing your home for sale, creating an organizing plan to make each process successful.
Renovations and staging are challenging to living an organized life because you are living in the midst of the process, which is temporary and transitional. Each requires a lot of planning, flexibility, and improvising as you go. Check out this blog post on "Planning your kitchen renovation". Start by taking away.

What can be reused and repurposed to serve your needs?
