What's Moveworthy?

You're likely to move more than once in your life...

...You may as well be good at it.


Moving isn't an easy process. It can be one of the most stressful things you'll ever do. Add a new city, or a new job to the mix and the stress grows exponentially. But it doesn't have to be that way. You don't need to do this without a plan.

Under the MOVEWORTHY tab, you'll find tips, shortcuts, and advice to organize the process and keep you on track.

The premise is that if you need, use or love an item, it's worth the effort of moving it to a new home.

The vision is that you'll arrive, content with what you have, grateful that it meets your needs, and happy in the comfort you find there.

Being happy has a lot more to do with attitude, than the things we surround ourselves with.

I love my job description. I look for ways to un-complicate things for people with complicated lives. Moving is a great opportunity to do just that.

Moveworthy articles break down the process of relocating into bite sized pieces, usually three steps each. The goal is to calm the disorder so that you can begin to settle into your new home right away.

You'll choose which items to pack, based on their value. The value that you determine, not someone else's concept of worth. The result is that you will live comfortably surrounded by only what you use, need or love.

How was this method developed?

  • I learned about moving while in the US Navy, which encouraged my affinity for living in new places.

  • I learned about management and productivity as center manager for a successful national distribution company.

  • I learned about organizational challenges as a past member of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers), and while training to become an Organizer Coach.

  • I learned about hard work and persistence from my mother. And from her mother. I come from strong stock.

After living in so many different places that my sister accuses me of moving just to avoid spring cleaning, I currently live in Augusta, Maine. I work both hands-on with folks in the local area, and virtually with those who are further away.
