I have never been in need of a storage unit rental in the past, but now for the first time I find that it would be the best and most useful option for me. I have things that I’m not sure if I want to get rid of yet, but I also don’t really have the space to keep them in my place. I just don’t really want to get rid of some of these things that were passed down to me in my life, but I don’t necessarily have the room for them in my current living situation. I need to be using my garage, as the winters here are long and cold and it is hard to have the garage full of things that I am storing instead of my car as it was designed. There are things that I can get rid of that are in my house now, I just need the time to figure out what to remove and what to replace with what is in the garage. Until then, at least through the winter months, I think I need to put everything that is in my garage into a storage unit that is insulated and has some form of heating. That way my car does not have to be scraped every morning, and I can keep it inside in the garage and out of the snow. And then the things that I have stored in there in boxes can be in a safer area that is insulated better until I get around to taking care of them. If I have a monthly bill that is for storage, then I know that I won’t forget to deal with them either. I will remember every month that I need to get out there and go through all the boxes and get rid of some stuff and replace other stuff.
The real thing is that I don’t have much need for any of it, but it definitely has sentimental value for me. I don’t want to get rid of any heirlooms or things that my parents left to me, but I also don’t really need it or use it. So, a storage rental unit is probably the best way to go on that for sure, and then it will save me some time. It will be in a safe place, and out of the way of what I am already doing, and I won’t have to feel like I need to get rid of it. I think that is probably what storage units are really for anyway, when you think about it. They are there to help you in the interim, when you aren’t sure or can’t decide what to do with something or where to put it or store it, but you don’t want to sell it or give it away either. So, the answer for the short term is certainly the storage unit, and in the long term it is using some of that stuff and getting rid of the stuff that I don’t need.
