What are the Steps in Rightsizing My Home?

Rightsizing your home can be a complex process, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming if you approach it step by step. Here are some key steps you can take to rightsize your home:

  1. Assess your current living situation: Take an inventory of the space you currently have, including the number of rooms, the size of each room, and the amount of storage you have.
  2. Determine your needs: Consider your current and future needs, such as the number of people living in the home, your work and lifestyle habits, and any special requirements (such as accessibility or storage needs).
  3. Set your budget: Determine how much you can afford to spend on downsizing, including any costs associated with moving or renovations.
  4. Identify potential downsizing options: Research different options for downsizing, such as moving to a smaller home, selling your current home and renting, or decluttering and reorganising your current space.
  5. Evaluate your options: Consider the pros and cons of each option and decide which one is the best fit for your needs and budget.
  6. Create a plan: Once you have decided on a downsizing option, create a plan for implementing it, including a timeline and budget.
  7. Execute your plan: Follow your plan and take action to rightsize your home, whether that means decluttering, selling items, or moving to a new location.
  8. Adjust to your new space: Once you have downsized, take the time to adjust to your new living situation and make any necessary changes to make the space work for you.

Rightsize Your Home Online Courses

We have 3 online courses to help you get started in your Rightsizing journey.

Shifting Your Mindset ($27)

This course helps you understand what you’re thinking and how to think about blockers.  It’s ‘mindset’ talk from the people that know!  The ones who’ve done it!

Empty nesters often find themselves with too much home and things, and not enough time. They may also feel like they need to downsize, but the prospect of packing up a lifetime’s worth of memories can be overwhelming. In order to move forward, it is important you shift your mindset from ‘you’ll never get rid of all this stuff to ‘it’s time’. These online courses will help you sort through the clutter in your home and set aside things that mean a lot – the rest will be given away, sold, upcycled, or discarded. The goal is to create less stress and more organisation, which in turn helps you live more comfortably. 

It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone, but once you do, moving on will be easier than ever before. Join this course to learn how to downsize without going crazy, so you can make room for the things that really matter most.
