Tips for Downsizing Your Home

When it comes to downsizing your home, there can be many reasons for that choice. It could be anything from a financial decision to a longing of wanting to live more simply. Regardless of your decision to downsize, take a look at some of our tips to make downsizing stress free!

  1. Go through your belongings and determine what is important and what isn’t. For the items that aren’t that important to you, consider donating them or simply throwing them out.
  2. With a smaller home, you’ll most likely have less room to entertain guests. Think about purchasing a smaller table or donating those 20 place settings you have. Bring all the items that you know you’ll be able to use.
  3. If you’re moving into a home that has less kitchen cabinets, try to decrease the amount of appliances you bring along with you. You want to make sure that all your kitchen items will be able to fit into the space you’re given.
  4. If you find that your new home has less storage, use what you have around you! Add shelving to your walls to take advantage of the open space. Find storage bins that can fit under your bed for out of season clothes. If you’re still in need of storage, consider a U-Fil storage unit.
