Many of us simply want to simplify our lives. Over the years you’ve accumulated lots of stuff. The decision to downsize is not an easy one.
Self storage is a clean, convenient, low cost solution when downsizing or rightsizing!
1. Start Early and Start Small
Starting as early as possible to make the downsizing process less stressful. Give yourself ample time to get things sorted. The best method for downsizing is to go room by room. Start with a smaller room, then move on from there.
2. Pace Yourself
Downsizing doesn’t happen in a day, or even a week. Give yourself plenty of time to downsize so that you don’t stress. Plan on 2 – 3 weeks minimum to get things organized. The key is to pace yourself, take as much time as you need. If at any point you feel overwhelmed, add another week to complete the project.
3. Donate, Discard or Trash Things You No Longer Need
Anything that is damaged or worn down should be discarded. More than likely you’ll have valuables that you don’t want to part with but don’t have the space any more. Additional pieces of furniture, antiques, and seasonal decorations and clothing can easily be stored in a self storage unit.
Donation is a great option to consider, many times you can take a tax deduction. Lastly discard, trash, throw out, and eliminate anything that simply has no value. The process is liberating, trust me.
4. Think Self Storage
Self storage literally gives you the space you need. Store seasonal items, like summer chairs, gardening supplies, winter shovels, fall décor, Christmas décor, and everything in-between in storage.
The process of downsizing may be difficult at times, but with planning and patience, you’ll get through this. Not sure what size storage unit you’ll need? Give Montgomery Self Storage a call.
