While some families look to make the jump to expansive suburban homes, there is a savvy group of homeowners making a different choice: downsizing to what they need to reimagine their current home’s function.

We are starting to see more homeowners considering trimming down the clutter instead of a move. The easiest way to start the downsizing process is to use a portable PODS container,” said Andrew Mielke, Franchise Owner serving PODS Northeast Wisconsin. “PODS can stay on your property or are conveniently transported to one of our secure, climate-controlled storage facilities.”

PODS Northeast Wisconsin offers tips for downsizing:

Have a plan: Set a realistic goal of downsizing clutter from each room.

Involve your family: Plan a group decluttering and packing party.

Have a yard sale: AARP suggests you ask yourself, “When is the last time I used this?”

Donate: Everything that doesn’t sell can be donated to a good cause.

How PODS unique portable moving and storage containers and services can help you downsize:

Decluttering: When sifting through items, PODS storage containers can help alleviate the clutter.

Storage: Items too precious to part with but have no place in a smaller home can be easily stored in a secure PODS Storage Center.

Extra room: Consider keeping a PODS container on site as easy to access storage during your project. PODS containers are spacious and allow seasonal or sports items to be stored easily on location.
