Moving into a smaller home takes planning and organization. If you’re moving into a smaller space, you simply won’t be able to take everything with you. Streamlining your home before you move will make the process easier.
Here are some tips to streamline and downsize your home.
1. Start Early and Plan Ahead
Plan ahead when you are downsizing. Long before moving day, take a look around and make note of what you truly want to take to your new home and what can be left behind. Walk carefully through each room, and make notes about the important furniture and accessories you want to take with you and what will fit into your new home.
Get the family involved, and have them do the same to their personal spaces, like bedrooms. Have them take a look around the house and decide which items are important to them and which they can either sell or give away.
