Making the decision to move in with someone is a big commitment, whether the person is your friend, sibling, boyfriend or girlfriend, fiancé or fiancée, husband or wife, or significant other. Sometimes, you both may find a place and have no problems moving all your life’s possessions in together, but most often, both people cannot fit all of their belongings under one roof. This can cause tension, frustration, and sadness during what should be an exciting time in one’s life. And if you were recently married, you have all those wonderful wedding gifts to find a place for as well.
Many people think the answer to making two lives fit together is to dispose of or give away their possessions, even those that have sentimental value and meaning to them. Though this is an option, it is an unnecessary one. Just because you cannot physically combine your possessions together in one space does not mean you have to get rid of the furniture, books, clothes, and knick-knacks that remind you of your family and who you are. The best answer for this problem is simple – self-storage.
Contrary to popular belief, renting a self-storage space to keep your belongings does not make you a candidate for the Hoarders TV show. It gives you a place where you can store belongings that don’t fit in your new home but are too much a part of you to give or throw away.
At STORBOX, our self-storage facility in Pasadena offers secure storage units in 75 unique sizes so that you can choose the one that best fits your needs. We offer packing and moving supplies as well as storage tips. And, since we’re open seven days a week, you can visit your unit any day you feel like it, whether to take a trip down memory lane, to add a few things back into your life, or to place a few new things for safe keeping.
