Helping Seniors & Boomers Live The Life They Choose
Downsizing and Right-Sizing Your Possessions
Downsizing (Often called Right-Sizing) is the practice of examining your current possessions and eliminating those items that no longer serve you. Don’t be scared, in essence, it is making your home and its possessions match where you are in your life right this moment. You’ll find that when your possessions match your needs and wants, your life becomes much easier and safer.
Too many possessions have become overwhelming
Time to repurpose space to meet today’s needs and desires
Death of a loved one
Time to move to a smaller home
You want a home that is easier to maintain
Children are grown and gone
Health and safety issues to consider
There has been a change in marital status
You want to spare your children and grandchildren the unnecessary burden of cleaning out your home later
It saves money
You are not your kid’s attic

Downsizing Seniors, Baby Boomers and Retirees
Downsizing the possessions you’ve acquired over a life time is a daunting task. One part of you knows you need to do it, while the other part of you clings to the memories these possessions have.
This is where I can help. There is more than one way to keep a memory than actually hanging onto the item itself. Let’s brainstorm ways to do this and then discover ways to help others with those beloved items you no longer need or use.
