What a year it has been! ‘Tis the season in which we take some time to reflect on the good, learn from the not-so-good and look forward to all that we have in the present. We remain eternally grateful to our amazing clients, loyal colleagues and collaborators and blog readers! Your support means so much to us, and we plan to continue providing content and resources that make life easier for you in 2020 and beyond!
In review, please find below our ‘Best Of’ blogs of 2019. These articles represent the most-talked about topics and most transformative trends of the year. Enjoy!

We have to admit we hit a sore spot when we published this blog – and it below up the phones! We nick-named this blog ‘the one that launched the hiring ad’. So many of our readers admitted that they hated something that we loved… un-packing! This blog is a reminder that our services are customized to your needs – so you can still utilize us to un-pack even if you managed to pack up without our support!
Let’s keep it real – one size does NOT fit all, and neither does one downsizing process! Ask yourself these questions before you change spaces and settings and do not hesitate to let us know if we can help!
We hope you have also had a chance to read our T-O-P Move Annual Holiday Poem – a favorite of ours because we get to think outside the box (hee hee, moving box, get it?!) and share our wishes for you.
Hugs for a healthy, happy and memorable holiday season!
