One of the reasons people move to a more compact space is practicality. Early this year, it was found that rental rates in Sydney have a 1.9% increase every year and that because of the Coronavirus pandemic, rents have reached an all-time high of $477 ex GST as of July 2021 (source: https://www.domain.com.au/research/rental-report/june-2021/#nationwide) However, you might encounter one problem when moving to a smaller home is storage space. It is only normal to have more stuff from your bigger property.
Downsizing is a process that takes time and a lot of effort. Of course, you don’t have to do everything on the same day. What’s important is that you begin the decluttering process. In this way, you don’t think too forward about the mess and cleaning you will deal with later. You should already plan to downsize your things at least three months before your move. This gives way to more important stuff like contacting removalists and getting paperwork ready. There are different methods on the internet on how you can begin decluttering.
People’s one mistake when trying to declutter is by doing all rooms simultaneously. This would lead to an overwhelming experience, and you might not get to finish or declutter thoroughly. You can first start with the room with the least clutter so that you can ease into it. Then, you can try out categorizing or assigning the order of the spaces where you intend to begin cleaning and where you plan to end. In this way, you can avoid one big pile of junk in your room that is hard to clean.
Another way you can fit your things into your new property is by knowing how big or small your future home is. This will help you estimate how much stuff you can move or bring over without making a mess in your new space. Knowing the correct measurements of the space you will live in will help you prioritize which stuff to move first. It is why Hiring Removalist services is helpful when moving to a new area. AAA City Removalist can ease the burden of figuring out what can or cannot fit in your new home.
One complicated thing about downsizing is not applying your established rules to all of your stuff. Instead, you are constantly making exceptions for certain things that you think might be useful one day or something that you have been saving to use. Stick to your rules, and don’t make any exceptions. The more you make exceptions, the higher the chance that your downsizing will fail.
Nowadays, social media has painted pretty pictures of what desirable living spaces look like. Because of that, people have conformed to their lifestyles from what they see on the internet. So, if you think you want to live a minimalist lifestyle, you cannot achieve that with a mountain of junk that you don’t need.
