Sometimes a significant change in a person's life results in the need for a self-storage unit. This could happen due to inheriting a parent's possessions. It also can occur when a couple decides to combine households. People who suddenly have far too many belongings for their home may plan to get rid of some things, but they might not want to do so in a hurry. Combining Households A couple deciding to get married or become domestic partners may want to rent a storage unit if they have each been living on their own for years.
Including my husband and I, we have a family of six, but we live in a smaller house to help stash away more money in our children's college funds. Our family does a big house spring cleaning every year, and up until a few years ago, it used to be a lot more stressful. It got a lot easier when we decided to start renting a storage unit. Now, we keep our winter clothes in the unit during the summer and vice versa, and we store items we only use occasionally. Not having so much "stuff" around the house just makes it a lot easier to keep our house clean and free of clutter. I have learned a lot about storage units since we started renting ours, so I thought I would start a blog to share my tips on to help anyone who needs them!
