Downsizing - Top 10 tips for downsizing Part 4 of 5 (Tips 7 and 8)

7. Get an objective opinion. If you can't decide whether to keep or kiss that dusty '70s-era sewing machine goodbye, Sarah says, "It's good to have someone who'll say, ‘Oh, please, you never use that!'" It might just be the kick you need.

8. When selling your goods, try an auction for high-end items. Then look for reputable antique and secondhand dealers. Often, they can buy all of your wares or put you in touch with booksellers and other specialty dealers. "Some dealers will come to your home, take what you don't want and even drop off the charity stuff," Sarah says. "That way you won't be trudging all over town." If you can't sell an item, donate it to a shelter.
