Are you a clinger? Do you cling to all the stuff you have and don’t like the idea of getting rid of any of it? “But I might use it someday,” you’ll say to yourself and anyone within earshot.
Sometimes in life, you’ve just got to downsize, and let go of some stuff. For instance, what happens when you finally—FINALLY—meet someone else you’re ready to share your life, and stuff, with. Whether you are newly married, joining families, or even making a new space for your mother in law, finding space for everyone’s belongings becomes tough.
Inevitably, you and this person in your life are going to move into together, and you cannot keep your stuff and their stuff because there’s just not enough space in the one place to store all the accumulated items you’ve both acquired in our consumer-driven, product-hungry, yet disposable society.
Back to the issue at hand—how can a person properly downsize their stuff when merging homes? First, assess what you two want to keep, and what they insist, “needs to go!”
Next, it’s time for a yard sale. If the weather/timing isn’t right, it’s time to go online and utilize Craigslist/eBay and sell, sell, sell. Getting rid of some old clothes? Donate them to charity shops. And, if you’re feeling friendly and want to bless your friends with some “gifts,” then give your friend that couch she always compliments or that weed wacker he so desperately needs.
