Do you rent storage space for any stuff you can't fit at your home?

That is why we have a basement.

No, but we probably should. We're overflowing in this basementless house.

When we lived in NY we had a storage unit. Apartments in NY are TINY! When summer came I had nowhere to store my teaching stuff, and after 18 yrs of teaching I have a lot of stuff.

My dad built a huge building about 35 years ago when he was 16 or 17 at my grandmas. it is close to being as big as our house We could fit almost anything in there but it is getting full now. They have another building but it isn't quiet as big.

Renting space for crap you're never going to use is just dumb. Unless you have a real plan to move soon and put your stuff in the new place, you're wasting your money. Most people do better off selling the old crap or donating it than storing it.

Becuz we live in an RV & aren't certain for how long. We whittle down contents when are in town long enough & realize how little of what remains we still care to keep - but mostly becuz we an out energy/motivation/mental capacity to make certain we weren't tossing something potentially important.

I own a big building so I have plenty of space and rent out space.

Yes because I moved from a 4 bedroom to a 2 bedroom house.

I did have one for a while. I moved in with my then-boyfriend and a lot of my furniture went into to storage in case the arrangement didn't work out. Once we got engaged, we got rid of it all.

Yes, it's the dumbest thing I still do. My goal is to get rid of the stuff and save money within three months. Such a waste of money over the years.

Used to, but it became too expensive.

The only time I've used one is when I moved back home with my parents immediately after college. I lived there for about a month before I found an apartment to move into.

"No." & I am in the process of moving & SERIOUSLY downsizing! I basically plan to take clothes, books, kitchen stuff, electronics, & a couple of pieces of furniture!

"No". I'm kind of a minimalist, so am not inclined to pack 'stuff' into my home. Heck, I only have two boxes in my large shed, out back. It echo's when I'm inside of it!

If it doesn't fit in my home it gets donated. In no way will I pay extra to store more junk. If it doesn't fit in my home, I don't need it.

No. I think the fact that those even exist is a sure sign of consumerism in our culture.

I'm embarrassed for those people just thinking of it.

I work at a storage place. There are definitely people who just have too much stuff but there are also many people who use storage while moving. Many businesses also keep files or inventory. People just need to remember that sentimental value isn't real value. I've seen many people pay to store things and eventually donate or throw away most of it after a while.

I'm one of those people. When I retired from the service, my children went on with their lives and I still downsizing. I hate the idea that I shell out money for my unit (down from 2lrg&1sm to 1mid size.
