Essentials when downsizing to a smaller home

With spikes in property taxes and the cost of purchasing a new home, many families are choosing to downsize. Maybe your kids moved off to college, you are ready to settle into retirement, or otherwise. There are a number of reasons you are looking to trade in your home for a smaller space. What some people fail to realize, however, is that downsizing your home also frequently means less storage for your belongings.

There are a few options you have in deciding which items will remain with you after the move. Many homeowners choose to sell their older belongings in order to purge unnecessary items from their home. These items are usually the ones we keep around “just in case” or “because it might come back in style.” Moving is a perfect reason to finally clean out much of the stuff that has cluttered your attic for years.

With all of the belongings you still wish to keep but do not necessarily have space for in your new home, self-storage units can be a good investment. The following items may be perfect for storing when your new house just doesn’t have the space:

  • Seasonal dishware
  • Sports equipment
  • Furniture
  • Decorations
