Helping seniors to downsize or age in place

Are you overwhelmed by moving or decluttering?

Do you need a plan to break your project into manageable steps?

Do you want to age in place safely in your home?

Creating a plan

Downsizing to a new home or aging in place safely can be stressful and overwhelming. We can help.

If you’re downsizing, we recommend that you begin the planning process at least 6 months prior to your move.

Whether you’re moving or staying in your home, our process begins with an in-home consultation. After seeing your home and discussing your needs and goals, we create a written plan for the job with estimates on length of project, order of tasks, services needed and approximate cost.

We’ll treat you like we treat our own families: with patience, love and kindness. And, when we leave, we’ll take donations with us and find the best place to give them new life.

Making tough decisions

We understand that decluttering for downsizing or aging in place can be an overwhelming process. We assist you in sorting, making decisions and categorizing what to take with you to your new home, what can be donated or given to others to enjoy, and what should be thrown away or recycled.

Coordinating trusted partners

If desired, we can coordinate our trusted service partners to help with large donations and trash pick-ups, sell valuable items, shred personal documents, move your furniture and boxes to your new home, and clean your former residence.

We hold our partners to our same exceptionally high client service standards, and we’ve curated our network to provide you the best partners for their specific lines of work.

Preparing your house for sale

We pre-pack to help you get your house ready to list with a real estate agent by organizing and decluttering each room, and packing away personal items such as photos, books, decorations, extra dishes, seasonal items and more. This makes your home look more spacious and inviting for potential buyers. We pack like items together and label each box clearly.

Packing and unpacking with care

When you’re ready to move, we pack everything for you. We carefully wrap all dishes and fragile items, pack like items together so they are well organized, and clearly label all boxes with the contents.

And we unpack all of your belongings and organize your new space so that it functions beautifully and fits your lifestyle. This allows you to get settled quickly and enjoy your new home to its fullest. Additionally, we break down all packing materials so they can be recycled or repurposed and arrange for their removal. Our goal is to leave your new home orderly and functioning just how you want it!

Organizing bookshelves

The staff of Cut the Clutter RVA are amazing! Teams have helped me clear my house (two stories in addition to an attic, finished basement, and garage). Cut the Clutter Teams have been thoughtful, considerate and hard working. They have collaborated with me, asking my input, responding creatively to my downsizing issues, and finding a “home” for the items I donated. Scheduling is a smooth process. For these, and many other reasons, I highly recommend Cut the Clutter RVA and am glad to support a woman-owned business!
