Downsizing? Use a Toronto self storage facility

As people approach retirement, many consider downsizing their home in order to maintain their lifestyle. Many spend their lives working hard, acquiring a great deal of valuable items. Self storage is a great solution to keep your new, smaller home free of clutter and feeling spacious.

According to MarketWatch, there are five questions you should ask yourself before downsizing. First, what are your total costs? This question includes what your current home will realistically fetch on the market. Secondly, will you downsize your social network? Many retirees move to a new location when they downsize, often displacing themselves from their strong social network. This can be a deal breaker for some individuals.

Will a smaller home mean a smaller lifestyle? And lastly, how long can you live there? This last question is really referring to the design of the new house: does your new place have the proper amenities in place you will need as you age?

Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage.
