Are You Storing for the Right Reason?

If you have been renting a storage unit for quite some time for a reason other than one similar to those listed above, it might be time to assess your reason. Are you an obsessive collector? Are you a procrastinator that never got around to the yard sale you were going to have? Have you forgotten what you have stored? If so, you probably don't need those things. Storage rentals can be a tremendous help but you should be comfortable with your reason for paying for extra storage space.
