Big Blue Truck: Donation Pickup

Big Blue Truck: Donation Pickup So, you have finally taken the time to clean out the closet, the garage, and the guest room. You got everything up off of the floor, you made giant piles of things you haven't used or worn in years and you put things back in an easily identifiable fashion. CONGRATULATIONS!

I found that through organizing for others, giving them a new insight or new direction, I could heal my heart and finally begin this new chapter in my life. It wasn't long after that I had the pleasure of meeting Deborah, one of the sweetest people you could ever meet. She too was going through a major transition in life and after a stressful move from Mercer Island, she didn't know what to do or where to start. "The clutter was stifling my growth, in terms of this new direction in my life." -Deborah (Kirkland, WA) Deborah sat down with me last week and shared her personal experiences of relocating, downsizing and working with our team to turn a new space into a relaxation destination. This is Deborah's journey...
