I’ve moved homes many times. Every time I moved, it seemed I had more stuff to move than the time before.
None of it was useless. Well, most of it wasn’t. More kitchenware. More furniture. More books. More clothes.
It all meant I needed a bigger place. Every time. Just so that I could live with all my stuff.
Some people are lucky enough to have a shed or a garage where they can store stuff they don’t need right now. None of my places had the extra storage space.
The last time I moved was especially challenging. There was a week’s gap between the time I had to vacate the previous flat and the time I could move into the new one. A week during which I had to put all my stuff somewhere.
So I rented a storage unit for a week. I was never aware this service existed before! Here’s what I learned:
– Storage units can be very affordable.
– Storage units can be huge.
Now, when I’m considering my next home, I can go smaller. I can store the things I don’t need immediate access to in a cheap storage unit. Why pay for an expensive property only to store stuff?
This is how cache works, too. You store the stuff you don’t need right now in a fairly accessible, fairly cheap storage space.
So if you’re anything at all like me, consider getting a storage unit. It’s an easy way to make your home bigger.
