Storage Success!

The new year plans began with cleaning out closets and packing things into storage! Well, we have packed about 6 plastic tubs with books and clothes and loaded them into our new storage unit this weekend. We certainly have more to put in there.

A little about the unit. They mention we needed our own lock. By that they meant we needed to buy a special lock from them. Eighteen dollars later, we had our lock. Oh, did they mention the $22 administration fee? No, oh, yes, it's there. Then, they added we needed to either buy insurance from them or prove we have homeowners insurance. So, the $63 rental fee was just to get in the door then they hit you will some add-ons. It was annoying.

But, the space is great and I will certainly have more space to breathe when we haul the rest of our junk over.

we are looking for a storage unit - which company did you go with and is it in the city? or outside?

We used Public Storage in DC. They just opened a new location on Bladensburg Rd. in NE. It is pretty nice. It's also new and shiny and that helps.
