Downsizing? Here Are A Few Quick Tips!

  1. Avoid tackling the whole house in one go.

It can become overwhelming and stressful if you try to do it all at once. Think in terms of months, not days.

  1. Use the new space as a guide.

Measure exactly how much closet or cabinet space the new place has, and fill an equivalent amount of space as you sort.

  1. Banish the “maybe” pile.

The less decisive you are about what to do with an item, the more you risk becoming attached to it. Moving things in and out of “maybe” piles also takes up time.

  1. Focus on most-used items (and let the rest go).

Don’t go by the newest and best; go by what you use the most. If it has been hiding on the back shelf and you haven’t touched it in more than two years, maybe it’s not that important to keep.

  1. If time is tight, investigate one-stop solutions.

Deciding whether to sell, donate, give away, or throw away is stressful and takes a lot of time. Another way to outsource the tasks is to hold an estate sale.

  1. Frame decisions as yes-no questions.

Open-ended choices can put you on the spot and raise stress. Yes-no questions make decisions a bit easier and help you to feel successful in making your choice.
