If you've been following along here at Artifcts, you know that Artifcting to support downsizing and decluttering as well as building those intergenerational bonds are very much a part of our ethos. So you can imagine how at home the founders of Artifcts found themselves when chatting recently with Marty Stevens-Heebner on her podcast How to Move Your Mom™ (and still be on speaking terms afterward). Stevens-Heebner's podcast features top experts as well as older adults and family members who’ve lived through it all in the search for answers to the questions most people don’t know to ask and explore the possibilities, complexities, and potential of later life.
Our discussion was wide ranging! Here are a few themes that guided our discussion:
- Where you can preserve and share the history behind your personal treasures for generations to come
- Why documenting your most important possessions with younger family members can bridge the generational gap and create closer relationships
- The surprising crossover between Artifcts and insurance. Make sure you have the proper coverage. File claims faster and easier.
- How sharing these memories makes it much easier to let items go when you’re downsizing.
