Decluttering your belongings can be the hardest part of downsizing. Many people find the process emotional, yet refreshing.
The first thing to do is draw a floor plan of your new space and work out what furniture will fit. For special items that don’t fit, offer them to a family member or put them in storage with companies such as Lovespace. Anything else can be donated to charity shops, sold at auction or online sites such as Ebay, Gumtree and Freecycle.
Specialist companies such as The Senior Move Partnership can help you with the whole relocation process. From furniture planning, to packing up your house, they provide a hassle-free move.
