Whether you are moving now or in the future, it’s always feels good to have your residence organized and free of clutter. By having everything in its place along with systems to follow, you can be more peaceful and present in every situation. The problem is that downsizing can seem daunting and difficult. How do you even start?

Gain Expert Tips from Professionals

Our speaker, Bee Organized, will give practical tips to break down the downsizing process and make it less stressful to tackle. To downsize effectively, it takes time and thoughtful consideration. If you are short on time, or if you’re not thinking ahead to the end result, you may end up making mistakes. You’ll learn from our event what steps to take.

Here are just a few ideas to consider:

  1. Downsize the big stuff if you are moving.

There’s no reason to take three beds and three dressers if you are moving to a one-bedroom residence.

  1. Take the small stuff with you.

It’s a good idea to rid yourself of the general junk in your home, but pay attention to items you use regularly or memorabilia. You may want to take this step slowly and conscientiously separate the “must keep” and “maybe keep” into designated boxes before the move.

  1. Sort through every box.

You may have multiple boxes piled up in the basement or garage that have followed you from numerous moves without ever being unpacked. Now’s the time to unpack and sort them.

  1. Plan for storage.

Even after you have separated items you no longer need or use, you may still be left with more stuff than you have room to store. Before you start giving away things you might need or use, assess and plan your storage. You may need to enlist a storage unit or rely upon family members to store a few things.

  1. Rehome special items.

Are there special people in your life who could benefit from items you really don’t want to give away? They may hold value and memories for you, but at the same time, you have no use for them and they may just be taking up space. Offer them to friends and loved ones so you can enjoy the knowledge that they are being used and treasured.

Paring down and carefully organizing everything can keep a residence livable and clean. The entire process may leave you feeling much better about your lightened up, rightsized space.
