Renting a Storage Unit

My husband has finally agreed to rent us a storage unit. Sigh… I’ve been begging for years and finally, I’ve worn him down. I’m psyched to get cleaned up and organized, but just like the old saying goes, “it’s gotta get worse, before it gets better.”

I know that some people consider renting a storage unit, a waste of money. That was my husband’s hesitation. His thought process was… We own the home that we live in, so why should we pay someone else to store our belongings. His second jab (at me) was that I have too much “stuff.” (BTW, he didn’t use the word “stuff.”)

Now that I’ve been working, he sees how hard it is to maintain everything. Just getting pots and pans out of the kitchen cabinet, and putting them back properly is a project. There’s nowhere to store the laundry baskets…

For us, getting a storage unit is the right thing to do. We need a place to store our Christmas and other holiday decorations, I’ll also store my good china and things I use only a few times a year.

It would be nice if this sleeping beauty was willing to help, but I’m lucky if I can get him to take out the garbage.

It’s filling up very quickly. I’m not even half way there. I still have three more closets and whatever is stored under the beds, to go through.  Hopefully, it’ll be done in a few more weeks. I feel lighter already.

We should have done this years ago!
