It’s amazing how much clutter and stuff one can fit into a home, particularly if it has ample closets and storage areas. If your home is large, if you’ve lived in one home for a long time, or if you’ve raised a family there, you are likely aware that you need to let go of many items that haven’t been used or needed in years.
Apart from what you already know you need to get rid of, it’s possible you have much more in your home than you realize. Once you dig deep into closets, cabinets and storage areas, you might be surprised by how much you actually have hidden away but no longer need to keep.
Fortunately there are steps you can take well in advance if you plan to downsize! The earlier you start, the less stressful this experience will be. Whatever your end goal is and no matter how much time you have to complete it, it will help to break down the projects into manageable action steps.
