Don't Make My Downsizing Mistakes

Having moved fifteen times in 30 years and lived in four states, I've processed my household goods enough times to know the challenges of downsizing when you want to preserve your family history and the cost of waiting until it's too late to save your heritage. 

Additionally, I've participated in downsizing family members and friends who have had one-hour to clear out an apartment to a year to plan for a move to assisted living. I've made nearly every regrettable mistake possible. 

Avoid making a similar list of "should have," "would-a," and "if only" errors by following the strategies I curated from decades of mistakes and successes.
