Declutter and Downsize: 4 Tips for Older Adults

I’m going to share 10 years of tips to help the processing of a downsize and declutter when you are just that much older!  My view is – go easy on yourself!!

1st Tip: Get some help

Your real value is the decision making. Clients of mine will remember me saying “please make yourself comfortable and we will do the running around”. It’s important as an older adult that you can direct and think about the items without doing the ‘doing’, so you can take time to consider decisions and direct what you want to do.
You can always swap hours with a friend doing the same thing

2nd Tip: Make it a ‘part time job’ and diary weekly hours

Each time you declutter, and achieve a desired outcome, you will naturally feel better. This will be your motivation to continue along.




3rd Tip: Reward yourself and create milestones
