Boomers Downsizing After Upsizing

Allen Fitzsimmons is CEO of Transitioning Forward. Allen Fitzsimmons, of Belchertown, MA, helps people transitioning to a new life phase by selling high-value items for them, alleviating financial stress in a time of great change.

The Baby Boomer generation is now meeting another challenge head on, that of downsizing after up-sizing. Even though the house may be too much for only two people in the empty nest, real estate agents say that Boomers aren't moving on very quickly. Most transitions begin by getting rid of the clutter.

If you are not quite ready to move from the house, at least begin removing the excess furniture and stored items that are too valuable to throw away. This is an excellent time to consider using Transitioning Forward and donations. Start by weeding out the bookcases.

Place three boxes in the room marked keep, trash, and sell/donate. As you move through the room, from one side to the other, sort the items into the boxes. If you haven't worn it or used it in a year, it is time to donate or sell. If you have duplicates of something, try to decrease your quantity to two or three. Check the expiration dates on toiletries like makeup, and put those in the trash.

The money you make or the tax deduction from donations will help you with moving expenses.
