SWOOP THROUGH YOUR HOUSE TO GET READY FOR A SHOWING

By

Swoop Storage BagYour house is on the market and your Realtor has just called to schedule a showing this afternoon!  What to do with all those odds and ends of things that shouldn't be in your house when it's being shown . . . 

Grab a Swoop.  That is this delightful over-grown, pumpkin-looking object in the photo.  It is actually the Swoop Storage Bag and Play Mat-in-One.  Okay, it's clever and cute as a flexible toy bin, but the moment I saw it I thought it was the perfect thing for sellers to use to clear up the last little piles of "stuff" that should be removed from their house during a showing.   

I normally suggest to clients that they keep one or two empty plastic bins on hand to collect things like beauty products, dirty laundry, newspapers, magazines, children's and pet's toys, etc.  But this adorable Swoop would make the process so much easier. 

Swoop Storage Bag

First of all it is probably easier to carry than a large bin.  Second it will adjust to the space available for it in the trunk or back seat.  Third, fourth, fifth, sixth--it takes up much less space to store when not needed. If you have young children they can quickly gather their toys into their own Swoop and off they go to grandma's ready to play when they arrive.  I bet the children would love to help fill up a Swoop just so they can make everything disappear inside. 

I have spent countless hours picking up my grandchildren's Star Wars figures, little shoes for Disney princesses, Lego pieces and many other toys, so I definitely have to have one of these just for that purpose.  And I think I am going to order a few more because they would be great to have on hand for clients.  You can order your own Swoop at Spoonsisters.com.  (And they come in Hot Pink, Lime, Orange and Turquoise!)

HOW COOL IS THIS?  I agree with Roger, great way to 'end' a staging project.
