Theres nothing like moving and downsizing to start the purge! As a designer I love clean interiors but at the same time I have to admit that I have my collections from travel, art shows, and children's works of art. These are all sentimental and they say a lot about who I am. I am proud to have an eclectic home with loads of personal meaning. At the same time I an getting near retirement and have to face the music. Guess I will put into storage that which I cannot part with after layers of purging before each move to this place in life. It will allow be to postpone the inevitable.

@Rebecca Abraham Design, I'd only consider downsizing if I could no longer afford my current house or climbing the stairs. So far so good. I wouldn't want to part with most of my things especially since our kids don't value ANYTHING at all. But maybe by the time I have to move I'd no longer worry about anything, I'd be going into some old age home and just daydream all day in a

haze.

When downsizing, space is limited. Kitchens are one of the most heavily used areas of the house and are generally full of "stuff" that can't be reached. Here is a great BEFORE & AFTER, which increased space by 30% and made everything perfectly organised. Best of all, it took only 60mins to do! Click here for more Small Space Solutions.
