Make More Room for Fun

Whether you’ve recently retired or you’re getting ready for retirement, you may be thinking about downsizing your home. For many seniors, this is an attractive option because it means less house to take care of and more time to spend enjoying life, but is it right for you?

Are You Ready to Downsize?

There are a lot of options out there, so how do you know that downsizing is right for you? If you find yourself agreeing with the following points, you may be ready to downsize:

  • You Want to Preserve: You hate clutter but have cherished items and family heirlooms you want to keep in an optimal environment.
  • You Want to Simplify: You don’t have a need for a large home anymore and are looking for something easier to take care of.
  • You Want to be Flexible: You aren’t a fan of long-term contracts or leases that keep you locked down. You want options and the ability to change your mind later.
  • You want to Save: Staying on a budget is important – you want to spend less on your living expenses and want to find the best deal in town.

Giving Yourself Room to Thrive

You’re nodding along to all of these ideas, so what’s the problem? What to do with all your stuff, of course. 

Sure, you could always sell the items you no longer want or need, donate them to charity, or give them away to friends and family. But, some items are simply impossible to part with. The cedar chest that has been passed down for generations. The clothes you wore at your wedding. Your family photos. The list goes on. 

We all have treasures we want to preserve for our children, grandchildren, or even ourselves at a later date. However, we don’t necessarily have the space to store them, and when you’re trying to downsize, that’s a real problem. That’s where we come in. 


Downsizing is all about getting a sense of freedom back, but you don’t want to make major sacrifices to achieve it. Finding an affordable self storage solution can help you get the best of both. Scale back to a home or apartment that is easier to manage without tossing the items you cherish most. 

What makes it an easy decision? The peace of mind knowing you’re choosing a self storage solution that represents the best value for your situation.
