Downsizing is a concept being embraced by many senior residents in Sarasota. To downsize is to scale back. Often that will mean moving into a smaller more manageable living space. Instead of keeping up with all the maintenance required on a home, you could transition into an inviting community of like-minded retirees who are enjoying an exceptional quality of life. When you don’t have to worry about leaking roofs, old water heaters or mowing the lawn you’ll be amazed at how relaxed you’ll become. Trying to fit all your possessions into a smaller place can be a daunting task. But you have the perfect ally in Junk King standing by to help.
The first thing to remember is to make this transition at your own pace. If you’re selling your current home and moving into a new place then make sure you have plenty of time on either side of that move to sort through all your possessions to determine what you really want to take with you and what you can get rid of. Start with the closets. Do you need all those clothes? Are there other items that you can do without like sporting equipment, holiday decorations or unnecessary papers? If you judge an item by how often you’ve used it in the last year or how many times you might use it in the coming years it will be easy to decide if it belongs in your new space.
When it comes to the bigger pieces like your furniture, knowing where you’re moving to is going to be a big help. Take some measurements. If that big living room set isn’t going to fit in your new cozy family room then it’s got to go. Don’t hang onto anything that is broken with the promise of “I’ll get around to fixing that some day.” How long have you been saying that?
Most importantly, make sure to hang onto mementoes and keepsakes but instead of stashing them away in a box look for a way to put them on display in your new home. There are some wonderful frame or shadow box options that can bring a smile to your face every time you pass by.
