Moving to smaller home, can be stressful. Here are some tips to ease some of the stress of downsizing:
Determinate your essentials.- You might feel overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the move, but making a list of the bare-bones essentials for your new place will give you a tangible guideline of what you should keep versus what to bid farewell to.
Give yourself time.- Months before your know you’ll be moving. tackle one room at a time and start purging - throwing out or donating the things you know won’t fit or be used in your new place.
Consider storage .- Ideally you’ll either pack or get rid of everything you don’t need before your move, but if moving day is almost here and you still have some possessions with a big question mark on them , perhaps items with sentimental value , you may want to secure an affordable, short term storage unit to house them in until after your move , when you have time to think through.
