I dislike storage units for many reasons, not just the monthly expense. They are basically a black hole for all the junk you accumulate. I’m at the time in my life when I want to minimize my belongings, not add to them. I’m going to rent a dumpster this summer and toss out anything I can’t sell at a garage sale or donate. It’s all going in the dumpster. My mantra is “if you don’t use it, lose it”.
