It can be difficult and time-consuming to downsize. These are three ways to prepare for moving into a smaller house.
Give yourself time
You should start planning as soon as possible to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Also, you will want to allow yourself to reflect on the precious items that you find when packing. Instead of worrying about the packing process, take the time to cherish the moments.
Make a list
Make a list of the rooms, including storage areas, that you need in your new home. Also note what furniture and essential items are needed for each room. To ensure that they fit, measure the rooms in advance.
Keep your possessions in one place. You can easily weed duplicates and dispose of what is not needed by sorting your possessions into piles. Donate, sell or toss the stuff that you don’t want.
Do not feel that you have to do it all yourself. Ask your REALTOR(r), for suggestions for reliable movers, professional organizers, and other relocation services.
