It’s About Time Organizing
Life is better when you’re organized

Senior Situation:

My Aunt had no children and named me as her executor. I’m pulling my hair out trying to manage all the clutter she amassed and the tangible assets of her estate. I need someone organized to assist and guide me.


Senior Solution from Mary Lynne Murray:

I would love to help you get your Aunt’s house in order. I can meet you there to evaluate the situation, give you an estimate, and get started on the path that works best for your situation. My experience will be invaluable to help you decide what to tackle first. You will find me honest and easy to work with. You may prefer to work alongside me or to delegate sorting to me as you tackle other priorities. I can arrange for appraisals, sales, moving, storage, and donations with all the documentation you will need as the executor. Give me a call and let’s get started!

From Mary Lynne:


“When I was a little girl, our house was so small that we had to right size with each season. I got used to clearing things out regularly, starting with Mom’s purse. Organizing is second nature for me, and I enjoy it immensely.”


“I’m a college graduate, wife, and mother. My previous career in a retirement community opened my eyes to the unique situation of seniors. I opened the doors of It’s About Time in 2000. After working with a variety of clients from all walks of life, I met Alice, and we began the journey together of right sizing, helping her live better at home, which included a condo, and later an assisted living apartment. Since then, I have devoted myself to an organizing practice that specializes in working with Seniors, Boomers, and Heirs.”


“You can be assured that I will prioritize your needs throughout the process of organizing or rightsizing your home. You will be treated with respect, dignity, and integrity. I will be an advocate for you, and a resource for your family. I give practical support with the kindness and concern that I would give to my own mother. Wherever you call home, I’d like to help you live better.”



As they mature, people tend to settle in one place. The years roll by without a household move or conscious paring down. Folks want to right size, but are uncertain about how to get it done. The physical effort and organizing involved in rightsizing can be difficult and overwhelming, as well as emotionally draining. The process is made even more challenging for those experiencing issues around illness, mobility, and memory. Along with the general anxiety that accompanies life changes, family dynamics can add complications to rightsizing as well. It’s About Time can help you and your loved ones get organized and stay organized.
