School Teacher

Cary helped me clean out and organize an office space that had become a default holding space in the house.
I had moved from a larger house I had lived in for almost 30 years a few years ago and, at that time, had to downsize significantly.  Nevertheless, I still ended up with boxes of "stuff" I didn't know exactly what to do with.  I didn't want to throw it out, so it all ended up in the office. I decided to hire her to help me get that office finally cleaned out so I could actually use it.
She arrived right on time and we went immediately to work.  She is very systematic and I found it extremely helpful to talk through why or why not to keep something.  I had tried to do this myself, but just kept going around in circles, mentally speaking.  Having someone else to bounce the logic off  was key for me.  One of the things she said that will continue to help me in this regard were, "If you lost this, would you buy it again?"   I realized that the answer many times was "no", but I nevertheless hung onto the object because it had been a gift or because I felt that to get rid of it would be "wasteful."  However, it helped me to realize that I was going to be donating all these items to someone else who could actually use them made me realize that they wouldn't be wasted.
Cary also made things so easy by taking care of bringing the items to donate and doing a lot of the physical work.  
The final cost seemed on the high side to me, since I'm just a public school teacher, it was TOTALLY worth it!!  I love my office now!  In a few months, I plan on hiring her again to help me tackle the GARAGE!!!
Totally, totally worth it!  Thank you, Cary!
