Has your lifestyle changed?  Are you preparing to downsize to start another chapter of your life? Downsizing, also known as "Right-Sizing" is a process we will all experience at some point in our lives.   

Today, people of all ages are realizing the benefits of right-sizing and living a more simple and peaceful life.  For some, the right-sizing process starts at a younger age as people prepare for the urban condo experience.  Others may wait until they become empty nesters to right size decades of treasures.  

Instructor, Laura Leist, experienced a crash-course in right-sizing when her mom passed away when she was just 16.  Laura knows firsthand how difficult it is to part with the treasures you've cherished over the years as, as she helped her Grandparents downsize her mom's home in order to prepare it for an estate sale.  (You can read about this experience in Eliminate Chaos:  The 10-Step Process to Organize Your Home & Life in the "Laura's Story" chapter.)

Everyone at some point will need to "right-size" their "stuff" and some may find that they will be responsible for rightsizing their parent's stuff.
