There comes a time in a child’s life when, after the death of both parents, they are faced with the daunting task of closing down their parent’s home. They may be faced with years of accumulation. Who gets what? Who wants what? Should I sell it or have it donated? What do I do with what’s left? Then there’s the problem of preparing the home for sale, stopping the bills, magazines, newspapers, finding all the important paperwork and making any needed repairs before buyers come into the home.
It’s not uncommon to find this huge task unmanageable for busy children with kids of their own or those who live far from the homestead. If you need help, consider hiring As You Wish Organizing for all or part of the job.
