It is a myth that downsizing automatically means you’re about to move out of your home sweet home. In fact, there are many good reasons to declutter.
To live unencumbered: Many downsizers who have cleared up space by getting rid of all the things they never use and live wisely with only the things they need, feel an enormous sense of relief and freedom.
To be light enough to travel: For others, a simplified home base makes it easier to make travel plans at the last minute or to stay on the road for extended periods. With less to maintain, you are better able to take advantage of great travel deals or make yourself available for spontaneous family events.
To find more time: Our lives have gotten busier and busier and more stuff doesn’t help. A downsized home means you spend less time cleaning, repairing or just wandering around wondering where you put something!
