A Daunting Task

cleaning out

Emptying a loved one's home is never easy. Here's how to simplify the process. Start by identifying, gathering, and labeling items of personal or financial value. Then inventory and label those items by what to keep, sell, or donate. If you have emotional attachments to things, be prepared to let go, and don't agonize over every item. Find ways to purge responsibly through donating and upcycling. Remember that the main goal is to get the job done quickly.
