Just in Time for Spring Cleaning, The Big Downsize is Back



Order meet chaos when professional organizer, Jane Veldhoven takes on two Nova Scotia households with too much stuff in Tell Tale Productions’ The BIG Downsize, Season 3, premiering on VisionTV Monday, April 5 at 9pm ET and airing Mondays through May 3. Each Season 3 episode will be followed by an encore episode from Season 2, Mondays at 9:30pm ET.

Season 3 of The BIG Downsize, an exploration of why we love our possessions so much and the emotional baggage and stress that comes crashing down when there is no choice but to let go, sees Veldhoven helping freewheeling artist Doug Bamford prepare to move from a 3000-square-foot Victorian house in Lunenburg to an apartment and Dartmouth’s Sparks family downsize from their large family home to a much smaller one.

“This season was especially challenging for both Doug and the Sparks family,” says Veldhoven. “As often happens with clients who are downsizing, going through years and years of belongings brings them face to face with the huge life change they are about to undertake. I hope viewers will discover some helpful tips and tricks when downsizing themselves.”

Host of this popular TV series, Veldhoven is the only Professional Organizer in Canada who is also a Certified Interior Decorator. An industry leader for the past 18 years, she has served on the National Board of Professional Organizers in Canada and is a founding member of the Nova Scotia Chapter. With a thriving business, Get Organized by Design, based in Halifax, Veldhoven is Past Chair of the Nova Scotia Interior Decorators’ Association and was a columnist with Herald Homes for 10 years.
