Downsizing to a smaller property is a practical choice for those of us who are ready to retire or who want to simplify their lives. Once all the kids have moved out, moving to a smaller home makes sense. It means that your living expenses will be minimized which is always a win. Furthermore, maintaining a large property and house takes time and energy and both of these could be put to better use by pursuing hobbies and even taking that trip or cruise you have been promising yourself.
But downsizing is never easy. It requires letting go of a home that you may have lived in for many years, and which holds special memories of family times. So the decision is an emotional one as well. But living in a large space can be impractical for someone elderly, and it may well be time to let go of personal belongings and furniture, consolidate, and move somewhere more manageable.
Sorting through your possessions that you have collected over the years is difficult and emotional as you will feel as though you are living your life again. As an example, that old cooking pot you inherited from your family will bring back many memories of the old times and the meals shared, so give yourself plenty of time when you need to start sorting out your belongings.
This is the time for your kids to decide which of your possessions they want to keep. Often you may find yourself hanging onto artworks, or furniture, or other items, that you think they may want one day, whereas in fact they may not be interested. So rather than keeping items that no one really wants, get rid of them during the downsizing process.
