Downsizing? Self Storage Tips To Store Your Belongings

Downsizing? Moving into an apartment or condo with less space?  Moving in with your new partner? Kids are grown up and you simply don’t need such a big house? Moving into a small living space doesn’t mean you have to sell everything that wont’ fit. is a big project. 

A self-storage unit is a great solution to help make the downsizing process easier. 

When downsizing, consider things that are no longer of value that can be donated, sold, or thrown out. When you downsize, sorting through all your belongings can take a long time and make your move a real problem. There are several super easy methods to take the stress out of sorting out what you’ll keep and what needs to go.


  • Self storage can save you money, it’s cheaper than paying more rent for space that you don’t need. There are a wide variety of sizing options to find the perfect self storage unit for your needs.
  • Storage units can be short or long term to fit your needs
  • Store and protect those precious memories and sentimental items. 
  • Store your items in a self-storage that is located conveniently near you.  
  • Self storage units can help you transition into a downsized lifestyle while allowing you to keep belongings that have sentimental or monetary value. 
  • A small space typically doesn’t have a garage or spare room where you can keep seasonal items like seasonal clothes, holiday decorations, and tools and sports equipment.

Downsizing and moving doesn’t have to be stressful and overwhelming. Start the planning and downsizing process early. Don’t wait until the last minute to start packing and then realize you don’t have the space for all your stuff. Start small by taking it room by room, item by item. Keep items that serve multiple purposes, as they will save you space.

If you know what you have, you will know what to get rid of. An inventory lets you track what you have, what you have too much of, and what needs to be purchased or replaced in your new home. 

Downsizing doesn’t mean getting rid of the things that are important to you, by simplifying your life and your home so that you surround yourself with the things that are useful and make you happy. 

You will be amazed how good it feels to rid yourself of all the clutter!
