Downsizing can be a daunting task, especially when you have a lot of possessions. At CHS Coastal Homes & Sunrooms, we specialize in designing and building custom homes that are tailored to our clients’ specific needs and preferences, including downsizing. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some things you should consider getting rid of when downsizing your home.
When downsizing, it’s important to consider the amount of furniture you will need in your new home. Large furniture pieces that take up a lot of space, such as oversized couches and armoires, may not fit in your new home and should be considered for donation or resale.
Clothes and Accessories
It’s easy to accumulate a lot of clothes and accessories over time, but when downsizing, it’s important to be selective. Get rid of clothes and accessories that you haven’t worn in the last year or that don’t fit. Donate or resell items that are still in good condition.
Papers and Documents
Downsizing is also a great opportunity to go through your papers and documents and get rid of any that you no longer need. Sort through old bills, receipts, and other paperwork and shred or recycle anything that is no longer necessary.
Sentimental items can be difficult to part with, but when downsizing, it’s important to be selective about what you keep. Consider taking a photo of the sentimental items you are getting rid of and creating a memory book with them. This way, you’ll still have the memories, but you won’t have to hold on to the physical item.
Decorations and knick-knacks
Downsizing is also a great opportunity to get rid of decorations and knick-knacks that you no longer need or use. Be selective about what you keep, and consider donating or reselling items that are still in good condition.
