The UNpackers are a group of Professional Organizers who work as a team to unpack and organize your home completely, the day after the movers deliver your furniture and boxes.
We organize and put away the contents of 12 to 15 boxes for only $280.
Valerie Cantrell was eager to speak with us about our needs. She is very detailed, wanting to know what we needed done and what we expected. She was quick to return calls or emails. She is honest and communicated clearly what she would do and how she would make our home look and feel better before she left. We asked her to come in to our small condo and help us organize the small space we had for a bedroom and a few closets. Before she came she suggested we get large and small boxes to put items in as we started going through our “stuff.”
Valerie came on time and called to alert us she was on her way. From the moment she came into our house she made us feel at ease. She asked what we really wanted to work on and how willing we were to let go of items she would find. We always had the choice to say no. Valerie wanted us to accept our choices and she was quick to move on to the next item to say, “Stay or Go”. The more we said those words, the faster we went through clothes, hats, shoes, jewelry, electronics, pictures and art supplies. As a husband and wife we had fun saying to each other, “Out, gone, or you are not using it, so get rid of it. It is just Stuff. Lets give it to someone else that will put it to use tomorrow.
Our empty boxes got filled and we needed more. Valerie has a wealth of information as to stores to purchase better storage containers. Ones to hang, ones to slide under the bed, and some for drawers. Valerie had suggestions for art and school supplies to be donated to Treasures 4 Teachers. There are consignment stores for new and gently used items from your home also. We laughed a lot and she just kept encouraging us to “lighten up our load.” Lesson of the day, be happy with the small gifts life brings.
