Don’t let downsizing get you down!
There are many reasons that you may be deciding to downsize and you should know that it happens all the time. Though downsizing can feel like you’re losing part of your home, you may find that it can actually be very liberating. Today we’re going to be talking all things downsizing. Let’s take a look.
Take a look at the floor plan of your new space.
Whether you’re moving into a smaller home or simply one of a different layout, you should take a long look at your new living space. By looking at the floor plan, you can determine how much space you will actually have and which large items are going to fit into your new rooms. The key to downsizing is planning and a floor plan is a great place to start.
Cut the clutter!
Do you need every single article of clothing that you own? Do you actually use that antique gaming table you just had to have? Are you absolutely certain that you need six different kinds of bed sheets? These are the kinds of questions you need to be asking as you consider downsizing. At the end of the day, only you can decide what you absolutely need versus what you don’t, but please be realistic with yourself. Be honest and make the difficult choice so that you can enjoy your new home without excess clutter. The best place to start this process is in the room that you use the least. You’re bound to find a whole lot of items that you don’t need in there. Work your way up to areas you use every day until you’re comfortable with the items you have left.
Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed.
Moving and downsizing are very large projects and should not be handled all in one go. By trying to get it all done at one time, you may find yourself getting overwhelmed and then stopping. Without real progress made regularly, you are bound to find yourself rushing when moving day comes. Spare yourself the hassle and simply take it one day at a time. Start as soon as possible and block out at least an hour per day to address this project. By the time moving day comes, you’ll be comfortable and ready for the challenges it will bring.
