Organizing for Life Transition with Cara Nottingham Bretl – 9-24-16
August 9, 2016
Last week we discussed getting our households organized for the back to school transition. This week, we continue talking about organizing our homes, but taking into account bigger life transitions, like downsizing and moving a parent into senior living housing. It’s a time of critical and emotional decisions, and the advice and insights of an objective, professional organizer can be steadying. We are joined again by guest Cara Nottingham Bretl, to get her advice on how to make these important transitions go smoother.

Clients gain a greater sense of control, reduced stress and increased productivity that can positively affect their business and personal lives. Paper management, time management — home offices and business offices located in the home – these areas are an ongoing struggle for many busy people.
