Start early and small
Begin with small areas, like your closet or garage, and work your way up from there. Then, gradually build up to larger items like furniture and appliances. If you have a large home, you may want to consider hiring a professional organizer who can help you tackle all of the big-picture decisions of downsizing.
Get rid of duplicates
Cut down on your collections
Make keep, donate and get rid of piles
Consider downsizing by selling some items and donating others so that only the most valuable pieces stay behind where they’ll be put to good use every day! Donate items that are no longer needed, sell them online at sites like eBay or Craigslist, or pass them along to friends and family who may want them. And, finally, throw away the articles that are taking up space without any need.
Ask for help
Ask your kids or grandchildren to help, or hire some experts. Many organizing, moving and other pros can be extremely helpful while you’re decluttering and downsizing. Having an estate sale run on your behalf can be time-consuming, but if your items are valuable, it might be worth hiring a service.
