  1. I too read your article every Saturday in the Marin Independent Journal. Usually I learn something, and sometimes I disagree with you. Your piece on monogramming, for example, made me laugh and remember the period I went through with my mother and sister when we monogrammed a lot of things, then got over it. Your remark in last Saturday’s column (1/27) where you said you didn’t believe in buying stuff to store your stuff also made me laugh. I’m a knitter, and if I didn’t have a good supply of plastic storage boxes for my yarn collection (stash), I would go mad, never know what I have, and end up buying yarn because I couldn’t find the same thing in my stash. Balls of yarn would fall on my head when I opened the closet door if I didn’t have the yarn neatly stored and carefully labelled in their boxes.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. I AM NOT SURE THAT MARNI WILL GET TO READ THIS NOTE BUT SHE IS FAMILY. WE JUST HAPPENED TO BE TOGETHER A FEW WEEKS AGO AND IT WAS VERY GOOD TO SEE HER. THE OCCASION WAS SAD BECAUSE IT WAS FOR OUR AUNT’S FUNERAL. SHE IS WITH HER LORD NOW.
    I DID NOT KNOW MY NIECE WAS THAT POPULAR AND
    I WISH HER THE BEST. LOVE, ELMER

  3. We read your information on Grilling and you talked about Wood-pellet grilling. We have become interested in this type of grilling, and wondering if the exit-or cost for the equipment is worth it>

  4. I read your article in the InsideOut of the Times-Picayunne every week. I love your articles since they are so witty. I hope that you visit our area ( I live in Mandeville, LA, near NewOrleans) one day. Maybe you will be here for a book signing or something. I would love to meet you.

  5. I’d love to meet you in New Orleans. Maybe when my new Downsizing workbook comes out in January!

  6. Yes! Love New Orleans. Hope to do a signing there when “Downsizing the Family Home: A Workbook” comes out in January.

  7. Absolutely love your postings in Denver Post every Saturday. Missed you the past couple of weeks (June 24/July 1, 2017)….where have you been. Did I miss something.

  8. Nancy, See above answer to Carla. Please write the paper and ask them to reconsider. thanks, Marni

  9. Hi Marni, You wrote an article in the Denver Post in 2012 about the nomadic life of a home staging manager. I’m in Boulder and need someone to live in and stage my home while it’s for sale. But a search on the internet and I couldn’t find anyone. Would you be so kind to tell me how I might connect with a home staging manager?
    All the best, Jocelyn Harrison

  10. Hi Jocelyn, I worked with a national franchise that provides this service, usually at not cost to homeowners. The company is called Showhomes. Look to see whether they have a franchise in your area. Good luck, Marni
