Theo recently relocated to New York City from Chicago with all of his belongings, and like any transplant coming to NYC, he was faced with the difficult task of downsizing. Theo had to make the adjustment from a 680-square-foot one-bedroom apartment to a 380-square-foot two-bedroom apartment! If he was going to make this new place work, he had to be brutal in his choices of what to keep versus what to toss. After he successfully sold most of his things, what remains in his home is everything he absolutely needs or loves.
