The other day I heard birds chirping outside my window. Spring is coming! I don't know about you but we are excited for some warmer weather and all the fun that it brings. Alongside having lots of fun some of you may be planning on selling your home and downsizing, or in other words rightsizing! This can be a stressful time as there is lots to do but Room to Breathe is here to help curb the stress with some tips for downsizing!
START PAIRING DOWN BEFORE CRUNCH TIME.Your move may be months away, but now is the perfect time to start getting ready. Dedicate a bit of time each day and go through closets, cupboards, and storage spaces. Tackle one box, drawer or closet at a time, and slowly chip away. Giving yourself lots of time will help prevent feeling burnt out or overwhelmed.
BEGIN WITH THE LEAST SENTIMENTAL AREAS FIRST.Start by editing areas that contain non-sentimental items. Closets, kitchens or bathrooms are a great place to begin - most people can tackle clothing or dishes fairly easily. Also, if you are downsizing from a house to a condo, be sure to spend time in the garage - snow shovels, lawn mower, ladders… you most likely won't need them after you move.
DONATE, SELL OR CONSIGN RATHER THAN THROWING AWAY.
Now is the time to bring in reinforcements! Not only is it helpful to have a spare set of hands to assist with furniture lifting or moving boxes, it is great to have an objective second opinion when you can't decide whether to keep or get rid of something.
GIFT NOW AND ENJOY SHARING IN SOMEONE ELSES HAPPINESS.
