If you’re thinking of downsizing your home after retirement, you’re far from alone! According to a recent survey, half of all people over the age of 60 think that downsizing is a good idea. The survey results also found that 64 is considered the “perfect age to downsize.”

Why are so many people choosing to simplify their lives and move into smaller homes after they retire? There are as many reasons as there are people. Now that the nest is empty, some find themselves with more room than they need. An empty house can be depressing, not to mention expensive and time-consuming to care for, and to heat and cool. Others find that they simply don’t need as much space as they once did, and don’t necessarily want the hassle of going up and down stairs. Still others choose to downsize in order to save money.

Downsizing may be a way to reduce clutter and stress, a way to remove obstacles that are keeping you from enjoying your life as much as you otherwise might, but it can also be a daunting task. Fortunately, climate-controlled self-storage in Lawton can help take some of the weight off, and make downsizing easier for everyone!

If you’re moving into a smaller home, there’s going to be less space. You may sell some of your stuff at a garage sale, or donate it to charity, but there are bound to be things that you don’t want to part with. Collections that you’ve built up throughout your life, mementos and heirlooms that hold great sentimental value even if you don’t use them every day. There may be things that you’re keeping for your kids or grandkids. After all, chances are you didn’t have a thing in the first place if you didn’t want to keep it, right?
