About Santa Rosa Organizer Donna Declutter
If you are considering professional organizing, Santa Rosa specialist Donna "Declutter" Roses can help. She originally started Decluttering Solutions Now! several years ago when some family friends were downsizing from their home after 40 years of building memories in one, big house.
It was extremely difficult for them, physically and emotionally, to decide what to save and what to part with. We knew they needed the help of someone with a gentle yet practical approach to sorting through all of it and creating order.
Since then, Donna has focused on helping people who need to move, especially if they are elderly and need local loving support to help them clear out their homes they have lived in for many decades, staging, packing and unpacking after the movers drop everything off.
Donna has had many clients with home offices that needed to be purged of paper and then systems set up so they could manage the constant incoming paper flow.
