Downsizing Differently, With Care and Heart

The Consider It Done team working on a downsizing project in Bloomington, they are reviewing the contents of a garge
Over time as lives and families grow, we can accumulate a lot of stuff. When we face major life changes like moves, divorce, or death, we can be faced with the challenge of dealing with all of our stuff. Here at Consider it Done, we understand the sensitive nature of these situations, and we’ve learned to make the process as smooth and compassionate as possible.

So, what have we learned? It starts in our approach—with heart.


First off, we prioritize empathy above all else. We understand that every item holds memories and emotions, and we treat each piece with the respect it deserves. Our team members are not just professionals; they’re compassionate individuals who understand the importance of preserving memories while facilitating the transition.


Secondly, we personalize our services to meet the unique needs of each family. We know that no two situations are alike, so we take the time to listen and understand each specific situation. You may need help sorting through belongings, packing, organizing an estate sale, or coordinating donations. Don’t be afraid to reach out for help! You may be surprised how many friends and family members would be willing to lend a hand.


Being mindful during an estate clean out could mean reducing waste and giving back to the community whenever possible. We work with local charities and recycling centers to ensure that items find new homes whenever feasible. Reframing the letting go of treasured items to see how they could bring joy to others or have a new life can ease the process.


There isn’t just the physical aspect of clean outs and downsizing. There is a need for emotional support throughout the process. Be patient and understanding and remember there are trained professionals who can help navigate the emotional waters of these big changes. Take a time out when needed and consider working in short sessions.

There are also the behind-the-scenes aspects of downsizing. From handling paperwork to coordinating logistics, you may need help taking care of the details so you can focus on what matters most—taking care of yourself and your loved ones. Stay organized with all the details by creating a central location to keep paperwork, receipts, or notes. Maybe designate someone to take care of those details.


If you’re facing the daunting task of an estate clean out or downsizing, remember that you’re not alone. Reach out for help and let others help handle the heavy lifting with heart. Together, we can navigate these transitions with compassion, understanding, and a commitment to making the journey as smooth as possible.
