Downsizing Tips and Tricks

Downsizing your life is often tricky. Items held on to through many decades can carry strong memories and personal attachments. When it’s time to start downsizing, the inevitable question is where do I begin? First thing, is don’t stress, take a deep breath, and follow our easy downsizing guide to help you clear out the clutter.

First decide what absolutely has to come with you. These would be utilitarian items like your bed, kitchen table etc. Those items are usually easy to identify and work around. Second, decide what can obviously be given away such as old linens and clothes, mugs, holiday decorations etc. These items can be easily donated to your favorite local charity.

But what do you do with the remainder? This is when it makes sense to call in the experts. You'll want to consult with someone with experience in the secondary market who can tell you just what your items are worth and be knowledgeable in the best way to sell them. These companies can often assist you in selling the items using their proven marketing and sales techniques.
