Posted by Junk King on Oct 28, 2020 8:00:00 AM



For many people, there comes a time in life when they feel they need to simplify. Downsizing is an option many choose and this often requires junk removal.

Along with possibly moving to a smaller home, many people also divest themselves of as many of their personal belongings as possible.

Less Stuff Can Mean More Life

Things and possessions can be enriching, useful, and add to the enjoyment of life. They can also become weights.

Being weighed down with the concerns of your property, your belongings, your valuables can be wearisome. So can the perpetual stress of ownership and all the responsibilities that come with it. There's payments, maintenance, cleaning, repairing, storing, and on and on. 

All of this, combined with the multitude of social and personal commitments, activities, financial and career goals, and everything else we busy ourselves with and fill our lives with can become overwhelming.

And life killing. 

Which is why so many people, at some point, mentally take a step back to survey the landscape of their life and decide they must simplify. And, for many, this includes downsizing their lifestyle and possessions.

The thinking is - and is backed up by research - that fewer possessions and less "activity" can lead to a healthier, freer, and more fulfilling life that leaves time for the things that matter most.

There are multitudes of great resources both online and in print to help you plan and navigate the ups and downs of downsizing. The important thing to keep in mind, however, is that there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to downsizing. 

For some, it means getting rid of almost everything and moving into a 'tiny home' or an RV. For most others, it simply means simplifying their lifestyle while reducing their consumption and being more selective in their pursuits and activities. 

Regardless of the degree or type of downsizing you choose to engage in, there will be many occasions for getting rid of junk. And that means finding the best resource for making that happen.
