Downsizing Your Home Tips

moving home 375x225Got too much stuff, too much house, too many bills? Here are some quick tips for downsizing:

1. Access your needs
What do you really need? Walk around your home and see what you’ve used in the past year and how often. One tip is to take everything out of your closets, cabinets and shelves and only put back what you actually use. If you like to hang on to your stuff, you may want to ask your spouse or children to do this for you. Don’t throw away anything valuable. If something might be worth a good amount of money, sell it. If not, be sure to recycle or dispose of it properly. Do not flush or throw into the trash any expired/unwanted medicines. They will contaminate the water supply. Any drugstore will dispose of these items responsibly, free of charge. You can also see if your city has a hazardous waste disposal facility.
