    I always thought storage like this cost a lot more. I could have done with this when we moved house. x

    I’d like a storage unit for my kids until they grow up!! Only joking, I love them really. I do know a few people who have had to store things like this. Particularly when they’ve gone to stay in another country for a while. I’ve never had the need to use one myself though, but you never know what the future will bring.

      I used to know the feeling when mine were younger. These storage units are great for when you need somewhere secure to store your items

    Thought it would cost more than this, I’d definitely recommend this to my cousin who never seems to dispose of unused things

    Your post took me back to the good years when my kids were babies, now they are older. Although last year, I use storage units for different reasons.

    I wish there are more storage options here in the Philippines but there arent much so rates are quite high. I like the idea of storage spaces because even if you don’t have much space in your house, you can keep your CLUTTER. Hehe.

      That’s a shame, I hate clutter but do seem to get more and more and love that there are places like this that I can store unused items

    I’ve never used a storage unit myself. My friend thought they were great when she had to store items after moving. It’s great that you can keep items somewhere safe.

    This seems like a very cheap and affordably way to create good storage. Makes things much more organised and clutter free.

    I’ve been seeing storage units on auctions on televisions/cable, is that the same as that? cause if it is like that, that is in a reasonable price, I don’t think owners will abandon it.

      I think they used to be a lot more expensive and a lot of people did not realise how affordable they now are

    Storage units can definitely be a pretty good, and cost effective way, to store extra items. We did it once when we had to move house into a small apartment. It was temporary so instead of having to get rid of or sell all our household stuff, we kept it in storage until we could move into a house again.
