Retiring? Use Olympia Self Storage

Retirement can be an exciting and daunting time of life. After years of hard work, it’s finally time to do whatever you want whenever you want!

It’s also a time of decisions about where to go, what to do, whether or not to move, and what to do with a lifetime of possessions you’ve accumulated. Extra Storage has a few tips on how self-storage can help you manage and navigate your retirement.


Downsize With Extra Olympia Storage

One of the biggest decisions people make when retiring is whether to stay in their longtime home or to move to something smaller and more manageable. While it can be hard to leave your home, sometimes a condo or townhome can be easier to maintain.

The question is, what do you do with your items if you move to a smaller place? That’s where our Olympia storage units can help.

Rather than get rid of everything or be forced into quick decisions on what to keep, let Extra Storage units help keep your items safe and sound while you are free to downsize as needed. 


Travel the World   

Since 70% of Americans dream of traveling in retirement1, chances are you’re going to want to see the world.

As you do, you can leave your items in self-storage. Rather than leave them in an empty home or with friends or relatives, it’s so much easier and safer to put your items into an Olympia storage unit so you can have peace of mind as you’re out exploring the globe. 


Store Your Hobbies and Toys


Another thing people often do in retirement is pick up new hobbies or get heavily into old ones. Whether it’s golf, painting, boating, skiing, or any  number of other hobbies and interests, most of those hobbies and toys will take up space.

Rather than storing your clubs and easel in your garage or letting them take up space and clutter your home, leave your toys inside an Olympia self-storage unit. 


Save Your Memories

If you choose to downsize your home, it may be tempting to also downsize everything, including memories, memorabilia, and other items you’ve collected through the years.

Self-storage allows you to keep these things and go through them at your pace rather than as your situation may dictate. If you have heirlooms and valuable memories, don’t get rid of them because you run out of space. Use Extra Storage’s Olympia storage and keep them as long as it takes to go through them and decide what to keep.
