You know that you are ready for a change. You know that you need to sell your large home, possibly on a large acreage size lot. The huge question looms above you like a dark cloud ‘NOW WHAT?” I have noticed more and more attention being given to downsizing. Not just in the size of our homes but in the amount of things we have surrounding us in those homes.
You may have been an avid collector of vintage kitchen things, shabby chic things, old cars books etc. You too have come to realize that these things can consume our time and energy and we are ready to pare down.
More and more there are articles in magazines, segments on television, books, blogs & the list goes on. Everyone of that certain age (baby boomer;) as well as some of our younger friends has given or will give this careful consideration. We have come to understand that things require attention. They require cleaning, caring, etc. We come to see that a smaller home with less objects cluttering it could actually free us to live a much less stressful life!
You are NOT alone!!! I too am a collector of all things vintage. I love old kitchen, garden, furniture I love things that other’s have used. There is a great deal of satisfaction in thinking about who used these things before I acquired them! I have been giving serious thought about what I really love and what are just things that I have collected. I am going to pare down to those things that I love and find new homes for the rest.
In every area there are professionals that can help you sort through your treasures & pare down. Now is a good time to start giving things to people who have mentioned how much they love something of yours. Come join me on this journey!!! I believe that we will find out that Downsizing can really UPSIZE the enjoyment of our lives. Stay tuned!!!
