Downsizing Your Home

When Downsizing and Moving to a smaller place you’ll see that we tend to accumulate stuff – lots of stuff. We have drawers full of stuff, gifts that we have never used (and never will), furniture we don’t really need but keep “just in case” and items that we’ve had for many years may be extremely difficult to part with, but we need to make a decision. Here are some steps that we can do:

  1. Assess your actual needs
  2. Go through your home, every cabinet, shelf and closet should be cleared.
  3. Measure your furniture.
  4. Assess your new storage areas.
  5. Ransack your old storage areas.
  6. Sell your stuff if you have too much.
  7. Get organized. Before you move into your new place.
  8. Move large items first like furniture into new home first.
  9. Put away storage items.
  10. Organize boxed items. Your labeled boxes can now be put into their respective rooms and the unpacking can begin.
  11. Organize your space as you unpack. Utilize closet and cupboard storage solutions as you unpack.
  12. Relax and enjoy! You have now entered the realm of living small.
