One of the hardest parts about the move is knowing what you should get rid of while downsizing. Here are some ideas to help you figure out what to part ways with before you move.
Clear Out the Broken Objects
It might seem like something that doesn’t need to be said, but it’s time to throw away any broken objects that you are not likely going to get fixed. Some of us keep objects that may have held importance once long ago; however, now that they’re broken, these items don’t serve a purpose.
Unless you intend to get them fixed or put them to a different use than intended, get rid of them. Different objects have to be disposed of in different ways, so make sure to ask a professional if you can.
some minimalistic ideas to consider
Clothes accumulate silently. It’s not a problem if you wear all of them often, but excess clothes can easily create an unmanageable situation.
No matter your situation, keeping in mind when it’s time to downsize your wardrobe will make your life more organized. Clothes are an essential part of knowing what you should get rid of while downsizing simply because your closet space might be downsized too.
It might be necessary to let go of clothes that still fit or clothes that you even still love. Try having another person sit with you while you sift through some of your clothes; this person can help you decide what to keep and what to donate. If the clothing is damaged or dirty, consider throwing it out or repurposing it.
Collectibles and Trinkets
Do you have a collection that takes up a lot of space? It will be hard, but it might be time to slim down your collectibles a bit.
Depending on the space that you’re moving into or how many people will be in the house, you might still have some room for a collection. In general, however, it’s better to have space in your house for you or the people living there.
some small patio ideas to consider
If you’re collecting something that has a market, try selling some of it to make quick cash. Keep high-quality pictures of your collection and the objects within it.
Unused Appliances and Electronics
Electronics and appliances can take up a lot of space that you might not have when downsizing. If you don’t use them, sell them to someone who will! Consider giving up some of your appliances if you have multiple, hyper-specific machines.
Try to get your hands on an appliance to replace these appliances that will do multiple appliances’ jobs. Remember that donating unused, working objects—even if they’re outdated—is always an option. Someone will always be in the market.
