Downsizing Power Purge: 3 Questions to Ask

Kristen Christian joins Suzanne to talk about downsizing and decluttering. The goal is to own less. Be a gatekeeper for your next chapter: only bring what you like, need, and use. Bee Organized takes clients through a power purge. About every item, ask yourself: Do I like this item? Do I use this item? Is this item valuable or irreplaceable? There’s no loophole in the process, and the more you go, the better you’ll get at it.


It may seem overwhelming, but doing a little at a time gets it done. Give yourself time, and start small. All that stuff didn’t accumulate overnight. Don’t make it daunting, make it fun, turn on the music, invite a friend, hire a downsizing company like Bee Organized. Keep in mind the end goal and revisit it – if your goal is to move to a smaller space, hold on to that, and it’ll push you through, give yourself grace.
