If you ever feel the need to rent a storage space, don't. Trust me on this one. It is not worth it.
I am in the process of liquidating our storage space. Moving our furniture out of our house and into the storage space a year ago was a nightmare. I still can't believe how easily stuff accumulates and how small storage spaces are. Josh left for Prague before our house sale closed, so I was left alone to move everything. My parents came up from Cincinnati to help and we spent a day moving dresser after bed after dresser after table after bookshelf. My mom spent the better part of said day alone in the storage space organizing things so that it would all fit while my dad and I made multiple trips between the house and storage transporting the never-ending pile of stuff. I definitely could not have done it without them.
A year past and the storage space became a faint and distant memory. It became such a faint memory that we decided to get rid of the storage space because we don't know how long we will be gone and nothing in there is really worth what we are paying to store it. Last month I went back to the storage space to assess the situation all by my lonesome self and found it exactly as I had forgotten about it being:
Needless to say, I opened the door, took one look at it and started to cry. It took me four hours to get to the back of the storage space so that I could get to the bed so that I will have something to sleep on while I am here finishing school.
This picture was taken at the beginning of the process of single-handedly dragging everything out of the storage space and into the hall. By the time I was finished there really wasn't room to walk and it was quite the fire hazard.
Four hours later: the final result. Does anyone know anyone in the Buffalo area in need of gently used and expertly stored furniture and/or household goods?
