There are many things that you can do to help downsize your home when you are moving. First, understand all of the benefits of downsizing such as lower utility bills and more free time. When going through your items, sort them into 5 categories. Those categories will be things that you sell, things you take, things you’ll gift to friends, things you’ll donate and things you can recycle. Finally, don’t move any of your furniture. These items tend to be large and if you’re downsizing you will need furniture that fits your new home properly.
