    About Kim

    After spending 30 years continually assisting friends and family in clearing the clutter and organizing their homes, I created Joyful DOWNSIZING and was certified as an Organizational Specialist.  Living an organized life is the only way Kim knows how to live. WHY? Having moved 25 times in 64 years (both domestic and international), downsizing has been a frequent part of her life. Kim’s clients praise her expertise in decluttering, downsizing, and dealing with the challenge of “letting go” as being extremely efficient, organized, and resourceful in the most pleasant way. Here’s what Wayne from Gilbert had to say:

    “Kim was so helpful when downsizing twice – from a single family to Assisted Living in 2015 and to Memory Care home in 2020. Immediately, she gave us a spatial concept of what to take and what to remove. By minimizing our stuff six months before every move, each process went very smoothly”.

    The Downsizing Process


    • Eliminate worry, have peace of mind
    • Treasure valuables and possessions
    • Enjoy having company and another opinion
    • Feel satisfied with an organized home-minus clutter
    • Gain storage space
    • Simplify by eliminating items no longer used
    • Accept that your kids don’t want your “stuff”
    • Learn that you can do without or with less
    • Get your “Honey Do” list actually finished!


    • Moving to a smaller house or an apartment
    • Relocating to a different city or in with family
    • Moving to a senior community
    • Combining households to create a blended family
    • You feel overwhelmed with too much clutter and stuff you never use

    Why Customers Like Us!


    For my move from my single-family home to a Senior Independent Living community, Kim’s expertise in downsizing and moving was extremely efficient, organized and resourceful in the most pleasant way. She guided me to keep the objects bringing joy and allow others to be passed on to others so that they may bring them joy as well. This process really allowed me to simplify my life.“

    Dorothy, Sun Lakes AZ

    Organizing of documents, paper, files, both paper and electronic are a stumbling block for me. Kim truly simplified my electronic world for the rest of my life. She reorganized my entire desktop so I can easily locate what I need.”

    Mary, Chandler, AZ

    I used Kim’s service and it is now a pleasure to visit my pantry closet. She accomplished so much in just 3 hours. I have been ill, and all I had to do is sit in my kitchen. Kim did it all, even took things for donation. Have her come and visit for a assessment, you will be more than pleased.”

    Linda, Sun Lakes AZ

    Great job Kim! I love the work you did. I am so happy so much of what would have been tossed went to great use to those in need! I will get a check out to you in the next day or two. Thanks again!”

    Brian, Gurnee IL

    So thankful my friend told me about Kim to help me move from Sun Lakes back east. She did all the heavy lifting, helped me pack personal items ahead of the movers, took loads to donation and consignment and returned my cable boxes. Best of all, she helped me think through so many details involved in downsizing and moving across country. She is very flexible and a joy to work with – I highly recommend Kim of Joyful Downsizing!”

    Ellie T, Sun Lakes

    I decided to sell my home in Sun Lakes but did not have an opportunity to go to my home to pack my belongings. Thankfully I was able to meet Kim at my home via FaceTime and we went through every room, every closet, every cabinet, and every drawer. I decided what I wanted to keep and what I wanted to either throw out or donate to charity. Kim then organized and packed everything and arranged for shipping to me in Chicago. Everything arrived in perfect condition and in perfect order. And Kim was efficient with her time. I couldn’t have done it without Kim and highly recommend her!
