Start Early

Begin the downsizing process well in advance of your move to give yourself plenty of time to sort through your belongings and make decisions about what to keep, donate, or discard.

Assess Your Needs

Ask yourself questions like: Do I use this item regularly? Does it have sentimental value? Will it fit in my new space? These questions can help you determine what items are essential and what can be let go.

Sort by Category

To stay organized, tackle one category of items at a time, such as clothing, books, or kitchenware. This will make the process more manageable and less overwhelming.

Consider Alternative Storage Options

Maximize your space by investing in storage solutions like under-bed storage bins, hanging organizers, and multi-functional furniture.

Take Inventory of Everything

Create a detailed inventory of your belongings to help you keep track of what you're keeping, selling, donating, or throwing away. This will also be helpful when it comes time to pack and move.
