WOW! What a word! Everybody uses it ………….from clothes, houses, volunteering, circle of friends to yards, circles of influences and the list goes on! BUT,

Which type of “downsizing” affects YOU!?  When are YOU supposed to do it? AND HOW?!!                  So we are now down to the WHEN and the HOW“?


1. Death and dying: If you are lucky enough to know if and when it might be a good time to do it before.

2. Sometimes “downsizing to ZERO” in some things is not a good idea!” Not clothes  Or Food!

3. Life in general is OVER Crowded……………good time to go “Uncrowded”!

4. Depressed? Clean out and make room for NEW!

HOW? Let me count the ways! The main thing to decide is the WHAT! A lesson learned from The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People/Stephen Covey is to make a list of your MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE AND THINGS! IN ORDER! When you know who your most important people and what things in your life are, it becomes simple.

    Good morning Yoda1!

    Here’s another resource to help with “downsizing”…it’s an excellent book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”:

    This book made me go through closets, drawers, files, etc. to de-clutter.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend.


    • Thanks for the link! Every book you have recommended has led me to something/information I needed in my quest! So I will definitely take a look. I tried to be “brief” in the post making the WHO and WHAT is most important in “downsizing”. 99% of people wait until it is too late on some “items”! 🙂 Yoda 1
