After I moved out of my parent's house, I realized that I had a lot of furniture that wouldn't fit into my new place. Instead of giving it to charity or tossing it into the trash, I decided to rent a storage facility. Unfortunately, I was on a tight budget, which is why I started asking friends how to save money on storage units. They taught me all kinds of ways to save, including renting a smaller unit, stacking my things, and even asking for special discounts. After I knew how to save, I was able to rent a storage space that I could afford, and that protected my things. Check out this blog for more ideas on how to save money on storage.
