Carlsbad Home Owners: Get Organized for your Relocation

By
Real Estate Agent with Solutions Real Estate CA DRE #01490977

New Year's ResolutionThe NEW YEAR is here, and it’s time to get organized.

Sound like another new year’s resolution? Well, perhaps.

But if you are planning to sell your Carlsbad home and move into a new one, your success, and happiness, depends on being organized. Most of us probably aren’t as organized as we would like. And as my friend Linda Scanlan asked so poignantly in her recent, and popular, article, is your life organized? I had to say no. Perhaps you do too.

Selling your home, moving, and getting settled in a new one can be a Herculean task, enough to challenge the most organized obsessive. And, admittedly, no matter how organized you might think you are, things will just not go the way they should, or clutter and confusion will take over. Life is just that way sometimes. I know, I’ve been there.

So, making the assumption that you might be in need of some assistance, if you are planning a move, here are some tips to help you on your way. And if you are sticking around the homestead but really need to apply a bit of organization to your home and life, this may benefit you as well.

While I have my own ideas on the subject, I thought I would ask Encinitas business owner and Founder of addSpace to Your Life!, Kathi Burns, to help us out. Kathi's expertise, and business, is all about organization. You can tell the minute you talk to her or visit her website.

Hi, Jeff -

we can always use organization help. My LIFE organized? Even my office is filled with piles of paper, despite all that I scan.

on your relocation blog, you may want to reconsider your title. The blue letters against the black background are almost invisible.

Thanks, Marlene. I think there will be some good suggestions...maybe I will have to keep some of them in mind to clean up my own house. :)

Jeff that was a very good blog by Linda.  If anyone does not think that they have clutter in their home, just try to empty out on room, just one is all it will take.

LOL, George. That is so true. I really enjoyed Linda's post, which is why I mentioned it, and it's inspiration for me.

Jeff D. ....  being organized is key for so many things. Especially when moving and relocating. and as George mentioned, clutter can certainly sneak up on you, when you finally try to clean it up.... it can surprise you on how much stuff or junk that you have accumulated.

Jeff - well that certainly is true. I think we often can do so much more but don't take the time, or perhaps don;t even realize the mess we are in. I think Kathi wll have some great tips for all of us, no matter whether we are selling and moving, or not.
