You think you've got stuff! Books, photos, grandma’s tea set, art, tools, cleaners, Christmas decorations…oh, my! Everyone has a motivation for downsizing— moving, mobility, order. And what to do with all your stuff? Downsizing is often a stressful process, both emotionally and physically, but it doesn’t have to get overwhelming.
