We Buy Homes in Antioch California. As legitimate home buyers within the Bay Area, we have seen our fair share of clutter, and we believe that downsizing while organizing your home can be beneficial for you and your family. With less clutter and stuff, your home will feel spacious, open and will be easier to clean. Here are our 7 tips on how you can downsize your home, easily.

The Marie Condo Rule

Marie Condo is a cleaning and organizing expert, and her golden rule is as follows: “Within one years time, deep clean your home. If you no longer have an attachment to an item, you must either give it away, or throw it away.” This makes sense for clothes that no longer fit you, craft supplies that are beyond their years, or old electronics that are made for the recycle bin. If you have zero attachment to it, it’s time to remove it from your home. Not only can you repurpose those items by giving it to someone in need, but you can also donate said items to a goodwill, a clothing drive, or to family/friends who may need those items.

Deep Diving

If you have a garage or attic, it will mostly have stuff that you aren’t using. Random possessions that don’t match the Marie Condo rule should be repurposed, thrown away or given away. Also, with deep diving, you may find sentimental items – things that you should reorganize and place in a more suitable area.

Do You Have Too Much Furniture?

Have a table that can be replaced with a newer, sleeker and modern version? Do you have an entertainment center that can be easily replaced by a mounted flat-screen? If you have had kids and they have left the nest and you would like a more open-concept for your home, selling your/their old furniture to get some cash for newer furniture is the right move. Plus, if you want to eventually sell your Antioch home, having newer furniture makes it easier to stage your home to sell.

Go Digital

File cabinets, storage shelves and random stacks of papers can all be scanned and digitized. Not only will it help with the organization of crucial paperwork, but you can get rid of the clutter that fills up your office or bedroom. With cloud storage services and external hard drives, you can rest assured that your digitized paperwork will be safe and protected from dampness or heat.

Two Much

If you have extra sets of plates, wine glasses, or just duplicates of items you don’t use too often, now is the time to give them away or repurpose them. Keep your favorite items, and keep what you need, again, apply the Marie Condo rule to your duplicated items.
