Decluttering for Seniors
Spring is here and that means it’s time for spring cleaning. Our Sales Director Christine shared a decluttering tip that was featured in a recent Redfin article:
🌱 If you’re struggling to get your senior to throw anything away, focus on reframing their thoughts from “I can’t believe I have to get rid of this,” to “I can’t wait to give this item a new life in someone else’s hands.”
According to Christine, many seniors can struggle to let go of items that they’ve had for years. Reframing their thoughts in this way can help them process those feelings, and it can help turn a fraught activity into something productive and fun.

Vineyard Gives – The Encouragement Project
We were so excited to support The Encouragement Project for March’s Vineyard Gives campaign!
The Encouragement Project is a nonprofit created to encourage, help and serve others in a variety of ways. They look for creative ways to serve and support the children, families and individuals, and partner with reliable ministries that work in certain service areas.
Our Tribe donated items for their Simple Gifts project – who would not benefit from a small token of encouragement. These simple gifts are handmade, beautiful paper containers that hold a sweet treat and a small note of encouragement and thanks. Take a look at our video for more info!
From our Tribe to yours, we wish you a wonderful April and a very happy Easter.
