What exactly is “rightsizing?”
Rightsizing is finding that place between too much and too little in your life. Changing Spaces assists people in finding that place while they prepare for a move, or even if they plan to stay in their current home. The goal is to direct a process of clearing out items that people no longer use or love in their homes, and find a way to keep those items that are near and dear to hearts. By clearing out the excess, there is more room to display and enjoy those items that bring happiness!
