Downsizing When Moving to Riverside

Downsizing When Moving to Riverside

We don’t need to live in such a large space, and many people are trading their large places for smaller ones. This saves money and makes for a more economical lifestyle. But how does one do it? How do you go from living large to living small? Riverside Senior Living has the answers.

Downsizing

Measure

This should be first on your list. Measure the size of your new place and get a feel for how much room you have to work with. Even better, once you measure, take some tape and mark out the area in a larger space and start to place your furniture to see how it might work.

Big First

Okay, move day is here, don’t worry, but move the large items first. It may be harder but the items that are larger are harder to manoeuvre and the less stuff you have in the way inside your new space, the easier it is to get the larger items in.

Take it apart

It may take longer, but trust us, if you take things apart they will be much easier to move and be harder to damage accidentally when moving. Take the legs off tables and the drawers out of cabinets to make your life easier.

Find Additional Storage

Face it, you can’t take everything, but why throw it away? Store it and keep it around for later. You are moving into a smaller space so you don’t need those skis or winter coats hanging around your place taking up valuable space, put it in a storage unit or keep it with a family member.
