Downsizing is difficult no matter if you are moving from a larger home to a smaller space, or if you’ve recently become an empty nester. And, regardless of how much stuff you have, throwing anything away can be emotional as well.
Of course, the process of deciding what to throw out, what to put in storage, and what to take along to your new location can be difficult too! But by taking the following steps into consideration, you can be sure that you throw away, keep, and store the right belongings in the right places.
1. Plan of Attack – Regardless of how much you have or how much space your new place allows, getting on board with a plan of attack is essential. For example, keeping the floor plan of your new place in mind when taking inventory of your belongings big and small can help you determine what can fit and therefore keep. Essentially, this approach it gives one the ability to evaluate everything with a critical eye.
2. Cut out Belongings – When it comes to throwing away your belongings and determining which items would be better off at a mobile storage in San Diego, its easiest to begin with the least sentimental items you have or the ones you can live without and work from there.
