Why Didn’t I Do This Sooner?

 Survival Essentials has worked with a delightful array of people over the years and there has truly not been a one that hasn’t said “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”  On the other hand, they also all started out feeling overwhelmed.  How about you?  Survival Essentials can relieve the overwhelmed feeling and also get you “there” sooner!

Downsizing is "Essential"



Are You Thinking About Moving

Would your home sell right now?

Before you begin the move process, walk through your home with a camera, and photograph every section of it. Those photos will be helpful for critical review for staging and later for your personal “before and after” views. 

Will your trash cans be burgeoning as you prepare to move? 

Using contractor’s trash bags will not only help secure unwieldy trash but also make the process progress smoothly. 


It’s nice to have a bottle of wine handy when you are finished packing, but leave the liquor boxes at the store. Purchase multiple sized moving boxes (or check with your moving company if they can provide moving supplies) at your local big box hardware store, packing tape and tape gun, and packing paper. LOTS of boxes will be needed and once the move is complete you can recycle them or offer to someone else in need.
