Save money by only renting a storage locker if it is an
absolute necessity. Too many people rent storage lockers to store items
that could be easily replaced with new items for the same money that it cost to
rent the locker. It is more thrift conscious and a better use of your time to
limit your possessions, and get rid of what you don't need.
some addition frugal tips for storage.
- Do whatever you can to find
free storage. However, be mindful that when you store items with a friend
or family member, they are more easily stolen or lost.
- If you do need to rent a
storage unit, only store items worth the cost. Declutter and sell
- Rent the smallest storage
space possible for the size of your items.
- Price check and compare all
the storage units in your area. If there are a lot of vacant units, you may be able to find discounts and coupons.
