case study: kitchen downsizing 101

Updated: Feb 12, 2019

Once a month I will bring you a case study to give you a peek into my world of organization. Names and identifying features have been changed to protect client’s privacy.


Sarah and her husband needed to downsize from a 5-bedroom house in Westchester to a 2-bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side. The occasion was a joyous one – their three daughters live in the city and they were moving in an effort to be closer to the grandchildren. Sarah was overwhelmed and what’s worse is that she felt guilty for being overwhelmed because she was moving for positive reasons. This is not uncommon; good stress is still stress.
