Family Heirlooms: Downsizing with a Storage Unit in Alhambra

The tiny house trend is still going strong in Alhambra and across the United States. The increasingly high cost of real estate in California has inspired people to live with less by adopting a “minimalist lifestyle.” Adorable micro cottages and stylish studio apartments make living in cramped quarters look almost alluring. How do people live in homes with less storage space than a backpack? They often search for “Alhambra storage facilities near me” and find the perfect option with US Storage Centers.

Not all those looking to downsize are trendy tiny home dwellers. When the kids move out and start their own families, retirees and empty-nesters often find themselves with more house than they need or want. No one in Alhambra wants to pay prime California real estate prices on rooms they don’t use, not to mention all the upkeep involved with a larger home. Selling the family home and downsizing to a smaller home, condo or apartment can be a smart financial investment. People have been able to retire years ahead of schedule by selling their homes at the right time. Although downsizing looks good on paper, it can be difficult for retired couples to let go of all their treasured memories, family heirlooms, and prized possessions. The good news? There is no need to throw away your mementos when you can keep them in a storage unit in Alhambra.

We All Have Things We Want to Keep

Everyone has something they want to hold on to, even if we don’t use these things every day. It might be your grandmother’s wedding china, your comic book collection, or your children’s baby clothes. It might even be your own clothes that you hope to fit into again soon. Maybe you are holding on to your son’s nursery furniture so you can pass it down to your grandchild someday.

The die-hard minimalists might tell you to eschew your personal belongings in favor of a life without possessions. We understand the intrinsic and sentimental value these items bring to our lives. U.S. Storage Centers can help you find the best of both worlds; the freedom you feel when unencumbered by clutter, and the peace you find knowing your treasured belongings are safely tucked away nearby.
