Women who are overwhelmed, but ready to take action, contact SOS to help them simplify their life by eliminating the excess that weighs them down and causes them to feel stuck. Stuck in a way that keeps them from moving forward in their life.
They crave the freedom to get out there to see what the world has to offer as they move into the next chapter of their life.
Many years of accumulating things, as well as other family member’s things, that they no longer want or even remember they have, turned into clutter. The clutter is like a boat anchor that weighs them down.
These women want to downsize their things, or maybe even their homes to provide a clear path to bring in fresh air so they can breathe, so they can think clearly, so they can regain peace of mind.
With a clear mind it’s easy to make plans to do more of the things that matter to you, that make you happy. The possibilities are endless!
We would love to collaborate with you to open the door to the next chapter of your life!

So just what exactly is a staging area? Here is the definition according to the Merriam Webster dictionary – ‘an area in which participants in a new especially military operation or mission are assembled and readied’.

A staging area is a designated area, and the participants are actually items that are stored until they can be removed from [...]
Cardboard boxes are great tools for temporary storage. Notice how I used the word ‘temporary’? They are not designed for long-term storage for obvious reasons. At some point over time, their stability comes into question due to the environment in which they live. Cardboard boxes have other temporary uses as well. They work great for moving your things from one home to another, or when you are downsizing to take donations of home goods to [...]
There are many companies that provide attic storage solutions. Most of what I’ve seen in these solutions look like good ideas in terms of storage and organization. Installing these solutions, and then accessing the items, may make you rethink the solution. As with anything in life, there are pros and cons with attic storage. In my experience, there are not many pros that I could find if I decided to actually make a list. Most [...]
Estate sale companies are not used solely when someone passes away to clear out a home. The name is actually a misnomer since many people use them as a resource when they move. Most everyone that I know downsizes, or reduces the amount of their belongings when they move to a new home. A lot of times when people downsize to move to a smaller home, they have excess that they feel could be sold [...]
Quite awhile ago I added meditation to my stress therapy regime. Life is full of ups and downs that can produce an overwhelming amount of stress. We all need to learn how to manage our stress. How you handle stress can have a significant effect on your physical, as well as emotional and mental well-being. It’s well known that meditation can reduce stress, but there are additional benefits to be had from practicing meditation regularly. [...]
