Moving to a Simpler Life

June 26, 2024

Thinking about moving? It’s easiest if you know where you’re going, because you know what will fit. Start by planning your new space with a floorplan or room measurements. Decide on essential furniture like a bed, chairs, table, TV, and maybe a bookcase or stereo. Add comfort items such as lamps, pillows, a throw blanket, and a side table. Then layer in a few precious mementos that you have to keep – just don’t keep too many! Consider your kitchen needs—just a pot, pan, and a few place settings might be sufficient.

Following that, you’ll still have a house full of things. Remember you’ve already chosen what to take. Family and friends may take some items (unlikely but still worth asking!). An estate sale is helpful if you have a lot of items + some items of value. Or, our move manager can handle donations to charities and responsible disposal for everything else. This leaves the house empty and ready to sell.
