Just signed the documents for your new home? What an exciting time for you!
Hmmm now for the packing. How on earth did I accumulate so much stuff you may ask yourself? It’s easy to do, so don’t beat yourself up – I’m sure we’ve all been there.
It’s a great idea to get rid of some of the clutter before you start filling up those boxes for the move to your new home. You may like to follow some of these suggestions to get you on your way:-
If you haven’t used it within the last year you probably never will – out it goes.
If it’s broken and has been so for the last 12-18months, you probably have no intention of ever fixing it or using it – toss it.
If it doesn’t fit you, and hasn’t for a year – in the op-shop pile
If it’s past its use-by-date – turf it
If it’s a gift you are hanging onto because it was a gift, not because you like it or use it – op shop
If I have 20 sets/pairs of the same thing – let it go people!
I’m sure by now you’d be feeling a lot happier about packing up your decluttered house. But what about the unpacking at the other end?
Just imagine coming home to your new home to find the boxes unpacked, your kitchen in order, your beds made and the rubbish removed. There might even be dinner and wine in the fridge for the first night in your new home. Pure bliss!

Taking Time off to Wait for Tradies?
How much time off work have you taken to stay at home waiting for a tradesman to arrive? We can do that for you and clean out a few cupboards or fold some washing while we are waiting.
Running out of Time to Buy that Present?
I know a science professor who has commented that in the past, if her young son was invited to a birthday party, the present had to be bought from Safeway or 7eleven or it just didn't happen.
Want to Have a Party But it’s all Too Hard?
Is it really that time of year already? My, how the year goes past so quickly. Party time! You may find you are running out of time, so many bits and pieces to source -Delegate the job to us, not a problem.
Going on Holiday and Need House Key Minding?
So you are off on a holiday, wonderful! Whilst you are away, we will collect your mail, feed the dog/cat, take your dog for a walk and if need be, pay some bills for you. We can even stock the fridge with some essentials for your return.
