From "Down-Sizing" to "Right-Sizing" Your Home

December 3, 2018

Right-sizing Explained by Jessica Jenkins

Down-sizing is not just about wanting "less" or "smaller" - it's about wanting better. Author Ciji Ware prefers to call it "right-sizing" - fitting your possessions into the space that's right for you at that time in your life. This can mean a home that's a better fit and reducing your possessions to the best and most important of what you own.

How to "right-size" your home?

Make five categories as you are going through your items. Designate each item in your home as one of the following: Toss, Donate, Give Away, Keep, and Sell It. Once you have done this, and you are able to take a second look at your "Keep" pile, it would be a good idea to go through the process once more. 

Keep in mind that this process does not have to be stressful, it could take days, weeks, or even months to complete. Take your time and only go through one room at a time. Give yourself enough time to go through all your items at a pace that feels more comfortable for you.
