We Transform Kids’ Lives Too

Changing Places changes kids’ lives… one  job at a time

 

In our 25 years in business, nearly half of our projects help families and their children to downsize, de-clutter and organize their lives… not just their homes.
Here’s the story about one of our favorite families.

Changing Places began work with the Dempster clan when Madison was 12 years old. We came back to help with six subsequent moves. Here’s what Madison learned during these projects:

  • Each time she moved, she saw how much she accumulated. We helped her to keep what was important to her and let go of the rest.
  • Madison learned the value of purchasing quality items with the question, “Do I need this, or will it become clutter?”
  • It became her philosophy to donate her old treasures, so others can create new memories.
  • She designed her own floor plan,  creating extra space by adding  a platform bed and containers.
  • She rents long term storage for her seasonal items.  She’s a California girl living in the Northeast now, and needs 4 seasons’ worth of clothing.
  • Her organizational skills allow her to be focused, productive and successful.

Madison created a livable tiny space

Madison’s cleverly and thoughtfully designed dorm room allowed her to be organized and productive from day one as a college freshman. She even inspired her roommates and friends!

There is a place for everything… and everything has a place

Changing Places was honored
to help this adorable young lady to become more organized!

“Dear Margaret:

Madison at age 12

Our family sends you and your team a heartfelt “thank you” for moving us into our new home. With Changing Places’ assistance, you took every ounce of stress out of our move. I wish everyone could have such a delightful moving experience—too often we are too bogged down with the logistics and endless unpacking to actually “enjoy” moving let alone the new house. Your team, with it’s magic, had us cooking in our kitchen and sleeping in our beds the first night and completely unpacked within a couple of days!! Thanks to you we are settled and loving our new home.”
