5/26 I am behind in posting because I have already moved out, but want to share some of my experiences with this.
Last Thursday, the movers came to pick up my furniture and bring it to the storage unit. I gave them all of the boxes that were packed and brought them to the new unit. The 5 x 5 space is half the size and a good purging experience for me. Fortunately, it’s 8 ft. high so I can get a lot of stuff in it. My side board fit perfectly and they piled everything on top of it. I have room to move so I can organize things.
Still need to pack the kitchen and clean up.
