The last time I moved to a new home, I was kinda proud of myself for being able to fit everything I own into my Tacoma (with a cap on the back). It really goes without saying that we all have too much stuff. Today I'd like to explore the process of downsizing and see if it nudges you in the direction of limiting (and eliminating) the wasteful stuff we all seem to collect.

Reasons for downsizing can vary as much as the process itself. Sometimes the kids are finally out of the house and it doesn't make sense to heat/cool that much space. While it is somewhat convenient to have some extra rooms for office space, crafts and hobbies, guests, or anything else, you have to determine if the extra space is worth the extra cost and hassle. Another reason for downsizing is simply the desire to have a smaller footprint. Let's get started.
