Downsizing Tips

Posted on 09/16/2015

Downsizing a home can be stressful. Whether you are a senior, empty nester or moving into a smaller home, we all face a challenge.  You love your stuff but not the clutter it can create. Below you will find simple tips to make the process a little easier.

Plan Ahead: Start early and set goals. For couples and families, make sure everyone knows the plan and agrees.

Determine Needs: Think about your new lifestyle, how much smaller your new place is. How will your furniture fit? Do you believe you should keep something just because you paid a lot of money for it?

Quality & Multipurpose:  Choose quality over quantity.  Pick that one piece of furniture that makes a statement instead of squeezing too much into a room. If you are buying new furniture, choose multipurpose furniture.

Objective Opinion: Need help deciding? Consider hiring a professional or asking a friend with a objective opinion.

Create A List: Create a list of items that you cannot live without. This helps you get rid of other items.

Create Bins: Keep - Sell - Charity - Toss

Remove Duplicates: No one needs 20 mixing bowls.

Children’s Art Projects & Schoolwork: Keep your favorites and take photos of the rest.
