Waiting until the last minute to make decisions about what to bring on moving day triggers both stress and indecision. If space is a concern (and it always is!), there are ways to downsize and keep what’s important to you. But please don’t try to do that on moving day.
When moving to a smaller space, be prepared to make compromises, and be open to realistic solutions.
- If you absolutely need a computer desk, you may have to sacrifice another major piece of furniture.
- If you have no room for photos in standing frames, mount them on a board instead.
- Moving to a space with just a dining nook? Trim your dishes to four place settings.
- No oven? Donate all cookware.
If you know you won’t be using it, it makes sense to lose it!
