Storage facilities – unless you live in a 250 square foot studio apartment in midtown NYC, they are a BAD idea. They suck down your cash. The chances of ever using any of this is about 2%. Get rid of that storage unit and put that money saved in your retirement fund or take a vacation!
If any of the items have sentimental value, take a picture of it and put it in your photo album! If it’s worth something, sell it at a tag sale, eBay, or a consignment shop. If you don’t sell it, donate to charity or a thrift shop. If someone in your family wants it, give them X amount of time to pick it up or else it goes out the door.
