My long time friend is moving from house to townhouse. She is a widow with a son in college. She is not rich but is comfortable financially. She is a clutter queen. She broke down and hired a local professional organizer for 10 hours, $80 per hour. She said it was worth every penny. Even had to rent one of those haul away junk dumpsters for $1,000! In fact, we hired 800 Got Junk to clean out after my mom passed away. They were awesome.
my point is that often you need professional help to make the decision as to what to keeo, donate, toss. Amy could well afford that.
