Nancy Giehl

My name is Nancy Giehl and I live in Boulder, Colorado. I've been married almost 30 years. My three kids are in college. I own a small business, Simple Moves, that helps people organize, downsize and settle in after moving, with my fabulous partner, Joan. We published our first book, Organize Pack Move! Strategies and Money-Saving Ideas to Simplify Your Move in October 2009.

While Joan and I haul stuff out of people's homes we constantly discuss what things are working and not working in our lives. We've found that as our kids are leaving, and parents aging, things that worked for us before aren't working now. The more we talked about it the more we thought there have to be thousands of women out there just like us. In November  2009 Joan and I launched our blog, Just the Right Things - Practical, cool stuff and ideas for women who are switching gears. Come check us out!
