    Agreed. Renting storage units can be such a drain! And half the time they’re so packed people don’t remember or can’t get to what’s in them. Plus, most sentimental items are only sentimental when you see them. The rest of the time most people don’t even think of them. Obviously, some exceptions, but, for the most part, we try to abide by that if we haven’t used it in a year, chances are we don’t need it.

    I agree that these units can often times be a waste of money for the renters. However, I will say that a storage unit has saved me one time when I was moving. I was able to get the first month for $1, the subsequent month for $79 and got to use their moving van for free. Instead of paying for a moving truck or van, moving instead ended up costing me $80 plus a little gas and a lock for the storage unit.

    For long term though, I definitely think they are a waste of money. In my area there are so many that have popped up that it seems like a lot of people must be using them if demand is that high.
