How can Self Storage help me downsize?

Self Storage is an organised method of storing your items in an external space. There are three ways in which you can use Self Storage to downsize your space. The first step to using Self Storage is to identify what items you need sporadically. Go through all objects in your space and select those that you have not used in many years. Organise piles according to things that you want to donate, sell, discard entirely, or move to your next location. Put items that do not fall within these categories together for Self Storage.

Once you have organised items, make an estimate of how much you would like to spend on Self Storage. You may need to adjust how many items you are storing based on the budget you can afford and the dimensions of the space which you will procure based on your budget.

You should also select the appropriate storage unit for your needs. Storage units come in a variety of sizes, and it is best to opt for one which is slightly bigger than what you need currently. This will allow you to add more things later. Depending on the kinds of items that you are storing, you may also need units that are climate controlled or have extra security.
