How to Move Into a Smaller Space: Guide for Packers and MoversPosted on: Thursday, September 12th, 2019
Here are some tips on how to downsize from the professional packers and movers at Nor-Cal Moving Services
In today’s economy, many are finding they have to switch to more affordable, smaller living situations. While it may sound like a bad thing, moving into a smaller place does not have to be entirely negative. Sure, you will lose some space, but you will likely save on bills and a small place can be just as cozy as a large house (less cleaning too!).
The expert team of packers and movers at Nor-Cal Moving Services is here to offer some advice on how to downsize your life and make the most out of a smaller living situation.
Sell old things
If you are downsizing due to financial reasons, then you do not want to drop a lot of money on the move. Since you likely won’t be able to take all your stuff, go through everything and decide what to keep and what to get rid of. You can sell any unwanted things on the internet or marketplace apps. If you are smart about selling, you can actually make some money during the moving process. Having fewer things also means you will pay less if you hire packers and movers.
Get creative with storage
A smaller place means less space for storage, so you may have to get creative with how to store things. Some pieces of furniture double as storage containers and with the right organization, you can make the most out of your storage space. Just like the game Tetris, it’s all about fitting the pieces together just right.
Digitize what you can
Things like photos, documents, CDs, and DVDs are relatively fragile and can be a pain to move and store. Instead of having packers and movers load those things up, digitize what you can. You can turn photos into image files, rip songs off of CDs, burn DVDs to a hard drive, and upload documents on a hard drive, so you have all of the important things without all the physical baggage.
