With over 17 years experience in helping families move and downsize, we have learned a thing or two! Read on for tips and tricks to make downsizing your home and moving to something smaller less daunting!
Tip #1 - Start Small
This is our number one tip - don't look at the whole house, it's too daunting. Start small, set yourself a goal of one or two cupboards a day to tackle sorting and packing up. Give yourself plenty of time so you can take a methodical approach to this step.
Tip #2 - Be Ruthless
Sad but true, you can't take it all with you. It just won't fit.
Ask yourself the hard questions - Why do I want to keep this? How often will I use it? How does this make me feel when I look at it?
If you can't live without it or it brings you great joy to look at it or use it then it has a place in your new home. If not, consider giving to a family member or a charity.
"Once our clients start the process of decluttering and discarding, the feeling of freedom it brings is often a real motivator." – Danielle Rose, Director of Home Remedy, Decluttering and Downsizing Experts.
Tip #3 - Bring in Family and Friends
It can be much easier to part with things if you know they are going to a good home. Offer furniture and household goods to friends and family. Sentimental objects such as photos are often gratefully received by family.
Tip #4 - Donate, donate, donate
Contact your local charities to enquire as to whether they will send a truck to collect some of your items that they may have interest in. This can save on the cost of having to move these items later or have them taken to the tip.
Tip #5 - Call the experts
