Storage Units for Retirees

Storage Units Can Help You Transition into Retirement


Retirement is an exciting new chapter in life! After cutting the cake and going home with well wishes and cards from coworkers, many people choose to downsize and simplify. Eagle Store & Lock, the leading self storage facility in Muskegon, MI offers access to self-storage units that makes transitioning to a smaller space that much easier.


Downsizing is appealing for many retirees. Why spend time cleaning a large home or maintaining a huge yard and garden if you no longer need that much square footage?


Easier upkeep leaves you more time to pursue your passions. Perhaps you’ll take a class at the university, travel to see friends or family, visit new places, or make time to enjoy a favorite hobby. As the real estate market improves, selling your home to downsize can also make financial sense, as you can use the extra equity in your home to increase your retirement funds while you move to something smaller.


Putting plans to downsize into action can be a challenge after a lifetime of accumulating possessions. Uncluttering is a skill, particularly when it means sorting through things you’ve acquired over decades of living and loving.


Renting storage units from Eagle Store & Lock in Muskegon, MI can make the process go easier because you don’t have to get rid of everything. You can store a wide variety of things safely with us, including:

Some people find it helpful to go through the house room by room over several weeks, taking their time to consider what they have and whether it can be given away or thrown out. Other people prefer to take a weekend or a day to get through everything quickly and get it over.


However you attack it, the best strategy is to sort things into what to keep in your new residence, what to store, what to give away, or what to throw out or recycle.
