Blaine, WA, October 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- evalu8.org's Managing Director, Anne Garber, is pleased to announce the expansion of information, tips and guidelines for everyone who is currently facing the challenges of downsizing. As always, access to these helpful tips and guidelines is free to consumers.
"It only takes the experience of moving your folks into a retirement residence to awaken you to the kind of burden you might leave for your own kids if you don't get your 'prized possessions' under control," says Ms. Garber. "Even it your project is just to clean up your basement, it sure helps to have a plan devised by experts with experience."
Among the categories, tip lists and subject areas evalu8.org has launched this week are Making an Overall Plan, How to Store Antiques and Art, How to Store Photos, Collectibles and Mementos, Storing Important Documents, Downsizing and Coping with The Empty Nest.
"One of the lessons here," says Ms. Garber, "is that the process of sorting the wheat from the chaff is a painful one. It can be slow, and it certainly can feel unrewarding as you're working through it. But the satisfaction of divesting yourself of extraneous possessions and simplifying your life is so satisfying that it's really worth the effort. I am not exactly a hoarder, but I do have collections and treasures I can't yet part with. Can I take them with me? No I can't."
