Hello sweet sweet storage space! I'm so glad you've decided to be a part of our family!
For the past few years we have lived apartments without an extra storage space and when we moved to our current apartment which is smaller then our previous place the issue of all that extra stuff a little more daunting. Do we own too much stuff? Probably. Should we get rid of some of it? Definitely. Can we get rid of all the things that take up valuable space in our closets and corners? No. We simply had some things in our apartment that needed a new home, one that was away from our every day path. Enter the storage space. In our current apartment building there are only a hand full of storage spaces down in the basement, not everyone can have one but we've been persistent about it, reminding the superintendent that we badly wanted one. Our persistence paid off and now the hockey equipment, golf clubs, camping equipment, and several other large items have found a new home.
There is still room down there and we will be emptying out another closet of rarely used items so that they can live down there as well. I can't believe the difference that it has already made in Buzz's room, while he didn't seem to notice the large smelly hockey bag in his room this past year, I'm sure that sooner or later he would have and he wouldn't have been pleased. Now that his closet is clean we finally have a place to put all the boxes of baby clothes that were sitting in a corner, the difference is amazing.
Keep an eye out for a tour of Buzz's lovingly curated room to show up sometime soon, now that the clutter is gone, only the awesome is left.
