This is kind of a fun (and cheeky!) poke at all of us who hold on to too much for no particularly good reason. Downsizing is hard but its useful. If you’re moving into a smaller space, its time to take a good, hard look at the things you’re holding onto and whether they still serve a useful purpose in your life.
You may need to downsize, if…..
You have been saving magazines (for recipes!) and haven’t used the recipe or looked in the magazine in the past five years.
You have at least a half dozen decks of cards and no one in your home likes to play cards.
Your stash of margarine containers is threatening to fall onto the head of an unsuspecting family member attempting to put the dishes away.
You have twist ties in your kitchen drawer older than your oldest child.
Your evening dresses from the 60’s are still hanging in your bedroom closet.
The shoes you wore to be a bridesmaid in your sister’s wedding is also still in your closet.
The applehead doll your daughter made you for Mother’s Day one year is in the cedar chest with no head and no dress.
You have sets of sheets for a bed you no longer own.
You have more than four mismatched pillowcases.
You have more than two hammers, one staplegun and one wheelbarrow.
You have 8 track tapes or records but nothing to play them on.
You have BC Tel bills that date back to 1987 and the rotary phone to match.
You have household items you are saving for your children/grandchildren/neighbour/a museum/public library/ charity that you have been saving for more than 6 months.
If this sounds like you, call us today and we’ll help you find a new home for the unused twist ties and we’ll get those BC Tel bills to the shredder where they belong.
