Christmas is quickly approaching. That means lots of new shiny toys/games will be entering your home. And if you are like me, just the idea starts making me anxious. So how do I prepare for the influx of new stuff? Plan ahead, start decluttering now. I know you feel like you don’t have an extra second this time of year, but you will be able to enjoy the holidays so much if you take the time now.
Hello! It has been too long since I have made a blog post. We have lots of new and exciting things going on at Tabulated and with my family that I need to update you all on. But today I want to share with you all about our trip to Utah. We have gotten so many questions about it.
So here we go!
This client had reached out to me about wanting help with decluttering before they moved. Being a coach’s wife she is no stranger to moving and knew she did not want to take stuff with her across the country that she no longer needed or wanted.
When I went for our consultation I mentioned to her that we could help her move as well. Unlike most moving companies we don’t pack junk. We strive to make the moving process on our customers as painless as possible. As I told her, we are mommas and understand that we need to make this move as easy as possible, so we DO NOT just toss stuff in a box and wish her the best.
So off to work we went. First, we took a day to declutter and reorganized holiday decor and other things that had gotten disorganized in previous moves. A couple of weeks later they were ready to head to Utah. So our team packed their house for The Fireman Moving Company to load the trucks and hit the road.
A couple of days later Ginger and I were on a plane with some of the movers to meet the trucks in Utah. After a long day of travel, we crashed at the hotel to rest up for a couple of full days of work.
As the Fireman unloaded the truck, we went around the house and placed sticky notes for where we wanted everything to go in each room and in each cabinet. Since we had packed the house we had a good idea of what the client had, so we could plan things out easily. Then we unpacked the boxes and got busy organizing. After two full days of work, we had unpacked and organized: 2 kitchens, a living room, a family room, an office, 3 kids rooms, 7 closets, a playroom, master closet, & a master bath.
Here are my takeaways from this trip:
- Utah is one of the most beautiful places I have visited.
- The altitude is no joke. You have to drink tons of water and not stand up too quickly.
- I am so thankful this family made the decision to declutter before they packed and moved, it made the unpacking and organizing so much easier.
- We love traveling for work!
- We have the best clients. They made sure we were fed and got around safely in that Utah snow. They were so easy to work with.
