English term or phrase: downsizing party
Consejos para implementar cambios en la vida personal.

Maybe you have decided to cut expenses by moving to a smaller home.
Invite people over for a “downsizing party” to help you get rid of the furniture and other items you no longer need.

  -> gracias, saludos ;)

agree  Maria Diehn: Me parece que sí es una venta de lo que sobra, pero entre amigos. "Nos achicamos" me parece bien. Seguramente hay invitaciones personales, no anuncios en el periódico o en letreros puestos en la vía. Probablemente por correo-e. Simpática idea.

venta de garage


Explanation:
Es lo único que encuentro similar. En mi país estas "fiesta de reducción" no existen, pero sí las ventas de garage donde uno pone a la venta todo aquello que no le sirva o no va a ocupar más.
