Downsizing is rightsizing 10 ways to de-clutter and de-stress your move. Research shows that older adults who have moved as a part of their retirement plan are happier than those who stayed put. If you're considering relocation it is never too early to start de-cluttering. MySolutions and The National Association of Senior Move Managers suggest the following:
Start Early - End Happy
Focus on the attic, basement, garage, closets, and filing cabinets.
Save Your Memories
Consider ways to preserve family photos and stories.
Now is the time to "gift" some of your treasures to special people in your life.
New Looks For Books
Consider donating books to libraries, senior centers, and used bookstores.
Use It Up... Don't Move It Out
Use up canned and frozen foods and paper products before you move.
Recycle The Toxins
Take time to remove properly hazardous auto, yard and cleaning products.
Space Plan Ahead
Request floor plans of your new space to determine which furniture items will fit.
Don't Lose Touch
Create a list of people, utilities, and services that need to be notified of your move.
When You Cannot Decide
Ask yourself: "have I used this in the last year? can it be replaced?"
