The idea of downsizing for Retirement is naturally met with mixed emotions by many. It can be a very emotional transition, potentially for good and bad reasons.
On the one hand, there is the emotional excitement of having more freedom in your life to do what makes you happy, but also the emotional stress of moving out of your family home to a new location
With the downsizing of your home, you may also realise that your current belongings may not fit into the new home. So, what do you do?
For the not-so sentimental items, you can of course sell them before you move. Places like the Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree, eBay, Car boot sales and more can be great options to free up some extra cash for your move.
For the sentimental items however you may not want to simply sell or throw them away. You can either get a family member or friend to free up some space for your goods or, of course, you could use a self-storage company like M54 Space centre. This way you can keep your items safe and secure and not have to throw them away due to lack of space. You’ll then be able to access your goods at any time whilst in storage.
