Is Storage Costing You Money?

The answer is yes! “According to market research, Americans will fork over $37.5 billion this year on storage, at an average cost of about $90 a month. The most common unit rented measures 10 feet by 10 feet, enough to store two to four rooms’ worth of furniture. If the American dream includes buying a home, it often involves renting storage space to go with it. According to the Self-Storage Association, the 1 in 10 of us who pay for storage are more often homeowners with a garage or attic than apartment dwellers,” reports AARP.

“Storage units are the bane of my existence,” says Ann Zanon, a certified professional organizer, who cites the example of one client, a recent widow, who moved in with her daughter and moved many of her possessions into storage for three years, at a cost of about $320 per month. Zanon calculates that her client ultimately spent about $11,500 to store about $1,000 worth of items. When she finally cleaned out the unit, “everything she kept fit into two boxes,” Zanon says. Zanon estimates the average household could free up 20 percent of its space by getting rid of items that are not needed or used. The common space cloggers she encounters include excess clothing, shoes, frames — and, ironically, unused storage containers and organizers. Another source of excess: bulk buys from wholesale clubs.
