Curating Your Lifestyle Essentials
At Essentially Yours, we take the all-at-once approach to downsizing. This means we gather every item in a category and present them in one place for your consideration.
All of your clothing, for example, could be collected and sorted on garment racks in one room to support your decision-making. Think about where you are going as you create a new wardrobe featuring your best color palette and coordinates for your new lifestyle. Keep what you will need and what you love...as long as everything fits you and will fit into your new space. Save a few special occasion outfits as well as room for future purchases if needed. Once you have chosen a collection...wait a day and double-check after you have gone through the same process in other areas.
