Do’s and Don’ts of Storage

Having a storage space can be an incredible blessing. Nobody thinks they have too much stuff until they no longer have anywhere to put it. The garage is full, the shed is full, the attic is haunted so you can’t put things there, etc. Finally, when it’s gotten to the point that you have turned the guest room, the basement and the bedroom of your second-born child into “storage space,” it might be time to consider renting an actual unit.

Also, you’re 40. You shouldn’t be sleeping on couches or futons anyway. Grow up.

Anyway, the point is that now you need somewhere to sleep and the options are limited. Granted, you could always just go stay in a hotel, but who needs the added expense of that, especially when you’re already paying for a space that even has some of your belongings in it? So you decide to take a pillow, a blanket and … Read the rest
