Celebration Giveaways September 2-9, 2008!

I am celebrating the September 2 launch of Three Steps to Becoming a Downsizing Professional ! It is #17 in my 1-2-3…Get Organized series. This manual is a complete guide to starting a downsizing business, marketing it, and learning the nuts and bolts of downsizing.

As 76 million Baby Boomers reach retirement age in the next 20 years, this is a growing niche for both new and experienced organizers. I have found this to be a very rewarding and fulfilling career, helping people downsize to a smaller residence.

About the Manual
Drawing upon my years of experience in downsizing (my specialty), I want to make the journey for others quicker and easier than my own trial and error method. Included in the package is

- a CD containing contracts, intake interviews – all the forms you will need
- a DVD comprised of proven techniques and methods needed for downsizing
- a buyer's guide for recommended products
- and a membership to our members-only blog designed to provide a forum for sharing ideas, asking questions, and getting support from me and other downsizing professionals.

About the Celebration Giveaways
In light of the launch of Three Steps to Becoming a Downsizing Professional, I wanted to celebrate by having a week of giveaways. Each day from September 2-9, I’ll be giving away one of my books.

I’ll be posting my regular blogs on organizing tips. At the end of each post, I’ll list the giveaway for that day, and you will need to comment on that day’s blog to enter the giveaway for that day.

Here are the rules:
1. Leave a comment on each day’s blog to enter the giveaway for that day
2. If you post a blog sending your readers to the Celebration Giveaways, you can enter a second comment saying you did so
3. For each update on your Twitter, Facebook, etc. pages about Celebration Giveaways, you can enter another comment (each location counts as one comment)
4. For every 10 people you email about the Celebration Giveaways, you can enter an additional comment saying you did so
5. Celebration Giveaways will end at midnight on Tuesday, September 9, 2008, Eastern.

I’ll select the winners randomly and announce them on September 10, 2008.

I'm usually pretty good about not accumulating lots of stuff. However, my home office is another story. I need to get better organized in the place I spend so much of my time. I have books, files, etc. in piles...need help!

Jeannie said...

Our office is moving to bigger space to accomodate more people. That part is awesome - what isn't so awesome is all of the money we're spending for things we "need" for the new office! Any ideas in keeping ourselves functional but not with a ton of "stuff" would be wonderful! I'd love to win this book.

When we moved into the house we now live in we had one child and another on the way...She was a surprise as was our third. (It's a really long story) Anyway needless to say we have a lot of stuff mostly belonging to the kids and I could use some help downsizing.
Since now our once big enough house is WAY too small!

My husband has a home office, and now a room in our new home has been designated just for me. I'm going to have my own space. I think your ideas might help me make it a more useful space. Thanks!
