Three categories of household items can easily be placed in storage if you don’t want to let go of them yet.
Baby and children’s clothing and toys. Outgrown baby and children’s clothing can be placed in storage if you plan to add to your family. This would provide a ready source of hand-me-downs when you have a new baby. Similarly, kids tend to outgrow their toys when they start growing up. A storage unit would be the perfect place to put them aside for use by later children or until you are ready to let them go.
Items that could be fixed at a time in the future. Let’s say you like to fix broken things, which can range from bicycles to computers. Of course, if you happen to be someone who has a busy schedule, such items should not lie around the house until you can get to them. Hence, you can set these future repair projects aside and out of the way until you have some time on your hands and can get to them.
Memorabilia. You are likely very reluctant to get rid of things that have sentimental value. These things can range from old sports trophies to clothing that you have grown out of, to any other item that causes you to remember some happy time in your past.
On the other hand, there are some items that shouldn’t be put in a storage unit. These include:
Perishable foods or breakable items. Even in a climate-controlled unit, perishable food should not be stored where it will remain for a long time. Breakable items, unless they are packed away carefully, also should not go into a storage unit.
High-value items. You should not put items such as expensive jewelry, designer clothing, or anything else that would be missed if it were lost or stolen.
