Well, I downsized this month, but not until I moved
Well, this month, I “downsized”. I sold “my” house (belonging to my late mother’s trust), and bought a spacious one-bedroom highrise condo for cash with the proceeds. I left it in the trust’s name, after some controversy.
There were a lot of things I just didn’t know as I went into this process, and was pretty much committed to it by mid-August.
The actual move happened in mid October and went in several steps. But dealing with the huge amount of accumulated stuff in the house turned out to be a much bigger problem than I had expected. That even has moral implications, if you want to think about it.
In the YouTube video above, note that the downsizing really starts before you move, by reducing clutter.
I’ll be covering some of the more detailed and more controversial questions on a newer Wordpress blog in November.
