Help the Sandwich Generation Downsize on Twitter!

Join us for the second Comfort Life #sandgen tweetchat tomorrow, July 11th from 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. EST.

TOPIC: How to downsize!

What is the ‘sandgen’?

It’s the sandwich generation—all of us who are sandwiched between the demands of raising our kids and the stress of caring for our elderly parents. We’re stuck in the middle, trying to manage our work and our homes and squeeze out a little time for ourselves—even if it’s only to sleep!

Downsizing is within your control!

Hope to (tweet)chat with you tomorrow!
