Some Downsizing Hints



Whether you are downsizing to simplify their lifestyle, to cut costs, to be closer to grandchildren, or to address medical needs, it can be an awesome task.

Here are a few hints to make it easier. 1. Tackle the hardest rooms first. Garages, attics and basements tend to accumulate the most clutter. 2. Organize backwards,” suggests Jamie Novak, author of‘Keep This Toss That.’ “A common suggestion is to pick out the stuff you don’t want and pack the rest. Try theopposite – pack the keepers.” Then you can donate, sellor give away what’s left. 3. Get rid of duplicates. Do you really need three spatulas;two stock pots and four different sized cookie sheets? 4. Get help. Call a real estate agent who can help youthrough the entire process and sell your home for topdollar.
