This is the Hardest Thing About Downsizing (But, I Have a Solution!)

Life after 50 is a time of transitions. With our kids out of the house and our career plans shifting, we find ourselves rethinking so many things… from where we want to live to how much stuff we have in our lives. And, in my experience, one of the hardest things about downsizing (or rightsizing for that matter) is letting go of items that have personal meaning.

So, in this morning’s video, I’d like to share my own experience with simplifying my life. And, I would like to specifically talk about how I dealt with the school projects, postcards, photos and other objects that, while meaningful, didn’t have a place in my new life.
