This was such a valuable service for us! We live in a one-bedroom apartment with a toddler, and things are a mess. We have all kinds of challenges and piles of stuff that we just couldn't seem to tackle.
Lynne was just great -- totally positive and non-judgmental, but really skilled at finding the problem areas and coming up with manageable solutions. She spent three hours going over every inch of our apartment with us -- and at the end, she drove away with her PT Cruiser packed with stuff she was taking to Goodwill for us. (It's a part of her service -- she even schlepped several boxes up our basement steps -- and it was so great! We never would have gotten all that stuff out of our house otherwise. She's going to send us the receipt.)
She was also a very good "therapist," helping us think through our relationship with unopened wedding presents, stacks of books, etc, and figure out which stuff didn't make as much sense to keep. It's funny, but once we put that waffle maker and that Henry James book in the giveaway pile, all our attachment vanished and we couldn't understand why we'd been carting those things around with us for years.
All in all, money very well spent. It's always a treat to meet someone so genuinely helpful and good at what she does, and our lives will be easier because of her visit.
