So the kids have moved out and you and your spouse still live in the 4-bedroom family home? For most people, such a large property for only two people to live in it is an unnecessary expense. Why not downsize to a two-bedroom home? With fewer tenants living in the property, there will be no need for all the furniture your home needed before. Large items like beds, sofas and wardrobes can go or be passed on to their respective previous owners, along with linen, old clothes and towels. Remember that you don’t need to be the storage property for your family’s old things.
