This idyllic waterfront home on the Bass River just before Grand Cove is a diamond in the rough. Few properties come along with the panoramic views and serenity that this property has to offer. The original 1930's cottage is rich with knotty pine walls and hardwood floors. It has vaulted ceilings in the fireplaced open kitchen living area all which look out to the water. There is a front room with additional living space when you first walk in. At some point an addition was added onto the home along with a poured full foundation under that part of the cottage. The hall leads you to a office space that has a washer/dryer and two bedrooms both with good sized en suite bathrooms. A NEWER 2014 4-BEDROOM Title V SEPTIC was installed as well. The detached two car garage has additional space above that has been used as finished recreational space. There is gas at the street. The lot is almost an acre with some of the property on the waterfront across the dirt road where you can sit in the hammock or Adirondack chairs soak up some sun or head down the path to your own private sandy beach area for a kayak or dingy ride up the river.

The ďsimple lifeĒ is a common phrase but is there such a thing? When defining the words, itís easy to understand the challenge that comes with pairing them together. Simple (easily understood and presenting no difficulty) + life (existence, being, living). Let's rephrase the quote to say, "The simpler life." Creating a simpler life is a more attainable and worthy goal.

The day ahead

For example, the morning routine of waking up and preparing for each day. It might not be easy, but preparing the night before by selecting clothes, setting up the coffee maker and having breakfast or lunch ready to go, the basics start to fall into place. Consider setting the alarm for 15 minutes earlier than usual and use that time to enjoy a cup of coffee before the day begins.

Mealtimes and more

Plan for meals. Create a shopping list based on meals that can be pulled together easily. Consider preparing meal components that can be brought together in different ways throughout the week. This approach often requires some preparation once the groceries are purchased. You may bake or saute some chicken or chop and roast vegetables in large batches. The benefit is that you wonít have to start from scratch with each meal. Set up a crockpot meal and let it cook all day or utilize an air fryer or pressure cooker to prepare a meal quickly. Cook double portions so that you have leftovers or components to in stock the freezer.

Introducing organizational habits and weekly plans takes time and dedication but developing ways to make life simpler is worth the time investment.

Are you planning on moving in the next 6-8 months? Donít let your belongings take ownership of you. As consumers, we tend to accumulate a lot of ďstuffĒ over the years. After spending 5, 10, or 20-plus years in one home, this can amount to more than some of us can handle. Do you have more than 4 sets of dishes? How about piles of toys & board games from when your kids were younger? And then there are those passed-down antiques that no one in the family seems to have use for, yet no one wants to throw away.

 

Rather than rush while packing and having to take the whole mess with you to your next home, consider starting the process early! You can categorize your belongings into the following groups:

 

  • Keep
  • Sell
  • Donate
  • Throw it away


It may be hard to discern which category an item goes in. This is why itís a great idea to solicit help when youíre moving and downsizing your piles of stuff. An outsider can be a bit more objective to help you see whatís useful and what isnít. 


The Keep Pile


The items you want to keep through your move are those that you use every single day. Thereís no question in your mind that youíll need these things at your next residence. Think of the items that are either irreplaceable or still in good working condition like bedding, the coffee pot, furniture, and personal items like books, DVDs, and electronics. 


Sell For Profit


If you have a question about any of the items that youíre going through, you may want to consider selling them. Is your sofa still in good condition, but wonít fit well into your new place? Itís time to get that piece of furniture to another good home and make a bit of cash while youíre at it. There are tons of websites, apps, and other resources that connect you with people who are looking for the items that you want to get rid of.


Donate


Some items may not be an easy sell. You may not even have the time to sell them. This is where donation centers allow you to do some good while youíre cleaning out your things. As youíre packing for the move go through things like clothes, books, DVDs, games, toys, and other knickknacks. Those figurines that have been sitting on the shelf may not be ideal for your new house. 

Itís also a good idea to keep the amount of space that youíre dealing with in mind. If you have less space, downsizing will be ever important. On the flip side, if youíre moving into a bigger house, you donít necessarily need to fill it up!


Trash Pile


Unfortunately, weíll always have a few things that need to be thrown out. Items that are ripped, stained, worn, broken, or plain useless must face the fate of the dumpster. 


No matter how you go about cleaning out your home before a move, you should know that it will feel amazing to have a lighter load to move as the clutter is cleaned out.
