Decluttering and Downsizing: The Difficult Decisions   

Z  Online Class:  A Zoom invitation link will be sent one day before class begins.

Acquiring is easy; downsizing is hard. Whether rearranging or relocating, by choice or not, sometimes we just need to get rid of “stuff.” This presentation is not primarily "What to do with the stuff," but rather the entire process which must begin with the hard part, actually gathering the stuff and making the decisions. In this class Dina Shtull will focus on the process of downsizing – of getting to the point of doing it (what stops us and what the benefits are), and helpful hints on actually getting organized enough to do it. She will address such questions as: Should I sell or donate? What if I cannot part with an item? Do I need an appraisal? Helping seniors with potentially difficult decisions is Dina’s specialty. She believes that downsizing is not a one-time project, but a way of life, and that downsizing is not only about what to give away, but also about what to keep.

Dina Shtull holds advanced degrees in the fields of both social work and business. She is an expert on the decluttering and downsizing processes, and has been helping others with downsizing since 2015 – with a year's break during the pandemic. This is her second "career," which she began after her retirement as an elementary school principal. Dina is the founder of Downsize with Dignity, LLC, and a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers.
