Face it, we should all downsize a little bit, and there are plenty of reasons to do so. At Security Mini Storage we have tons of people who come into our facility looking for space due to downsizing. Here are some of the best reasons people give us for downsizing their lives.

Downsize? Why?

Less Work

Do you really love taking care of a 4 bedroom home when there is only two of you living in it? More to clean, bigger lawn to mow, more things that could break. Many people who have their children move out seriously consider downsizing, it just makes sense. We all just want to relax, leave the work for someone else.

More Money For You

Selling the home, buying a smaller place will leave a nice amount of money in your bank account. You can enjoy the money anyway you want, take that trip, buy some friends gifts, get a pet, the possibilities are going to be as endless as your bank account. Not to mention, lower property taxes and monthly expenses.

Get Rid of Clutter

During the downsizing process, you can finally get rid of all that clutter. You can choose to store your stuff away, storage units are great for this or donate your items. Totally dependent on what you want to keep, think of this as a chance to start fresh. We are big believers on keeping all things free of clutter.

Less Stress

This one is pretty simple, the less stuff you have to look after, the less stressed you will be. There is an extremely liberating feeling that comes with downsizing that many of our customers have mentioned. We think that we could all use a little less stress in our lives, a well earned vacation will help with the de-stressing process.
