It's not quite spring yet, but it feels like everywhere you look there are people "spring cleaning" and talking about the Konmari Method. Do you have the organizing, spring-cleaning, uncluttering bug? We all love how a good minimalizing binge can feel, but here are a few things to remember (whether downsizing or going full #konmari) so you don’t let go of something you might regret!
We definitely agree, keep the things that give you joy! If you want to downsize or minimalize really take the time to identify the things in your home or collection that you love most and hold on to them!
Talk to your family members, you may be ready to donate an item but that doesn’t mean your family members are. Talk to your family and see what things they might be able to take off your hands.
If you’re a collector, are there some smaller items that you could exchange with a new item to your collection?
Not sure about the value of a possession? Before letting it go, reach out to a professional who can offer you an appraisal or an idea of value. Haste makes waste, don’t get in a hurry without giving it some forethought and research.
If you are doing a full downsize, you could also benefit from the support of a professional. They can help you make your decisions with confidence and lessen you stress!
