January is the month for resolutions.  February is the month for those resolutions to begin to fade.  Downsizing typically is part of a resolution, and here are some tips on the process.

DownsizingExpert5 Tips from a Downsizing Expert


What does it take to be a downsizing expert?  Experience both personally and professionally.  Over the years I've learned that downsizing isn't necessarily a bad thing, and here are 5 tips I've learned along the way.


1)  Timing is Everything

Create a timeline when possible.  Start doing a little now..don't delay the process. 


2) Choose Quality of Quantity

Enjoy the finer things in life!  Example:  instead of keeping 10 sets of sheets, keep one with the highest thread count.


3) Work in Stages

To avoid overwhelm, you can approach in different by room or in layers (remove broken, unused items first).


4) Live It Up

By removing excess possessions in your life, you create a calmness and have more time and energy for things you enjoy.


5) Consult a Move Expert

Just like you seek advice from a financial planner, etc. seek help from a move manager who can coordinate all the details on your behalf and greatly shorten the duration of the move.

When downsizing, keep three different bags close by:

- a clear bag for items to keep

- a black bag for garbage

- a white bag for donations
