Not enough storage? Or... too much stuff?
Helping people downsize and move can be emotional which is one of the reasons we do our work WITH our clients, not TO them. When people think about releasing surplus stuff, they often say they don't know where to start and they are OVERWHELMED.
How many times have you craved more space only to realize you have enough space… you just have too much stuff!
At our Diva Laugh + Learn presentations, we like to showcase a few of our favourite things - a jar of pen springs, a container of twist ties, a tin of lottery tickets, a bag of swizzle sticks…. Then, we watch audience members nudge each other and laugh at what some of our clients have collected over the years.
It is much easier to help others let go of their stuff than it is to let go of your own stuff as you tell unique stories about your stuff to anyone and everyone who will listen. It’s no wonder letting go is so challenging!
The decision to move to a smaller home is the most common reason people downsize. With years of memories to choose from, selecting the right items to take for the next part of your journey is critical.
Will you miss some of those items you sell, donate or recycle? Perhaps...but the space you will free up in your home will be well worth it.
