Go Fetchit is a new service I tried out the other day which runs like an Uber service for delivery and pickup of items. I needed to get rid of two appliances and lumber materials to be taken to the dump. We use Uhaul for our Staging service on a regular basis.

- Decluttering and cleaning needs to be done inside and outside of every house for sale.
We want everything out of the house that lets a person know who owns the house. – Andy Capelluto
Given my rather stiff stance on staging, my editors and I agreed it could be fun for me to speak with a woman who recently authored a book on the subject.
