Hoarding stuff in a Storage Locker: Last August, I wrote about my Aunt’s Storage Locker. At the time, I remarked about the long term cost and the amount of stuff in there. Well, seven months have ticked by ($2,700 storage fees) and there has been no resolution to the contents. Should we sell it as is without inspecting all the contents? There is almost no room in the giant locker to inspect the contents. Should we remove the contents and to where? It would refill the garage and carport or the entire patio and storage shed we just cleaned out. It has to be removed and soon.
And, this is how my Aunt got herself in a bind. She had a lot of her stuff in a shop where for several years she moved her stuff in and out at a profit in addition to sales at home and at my moms. Then she lost the shop and had to move all the contents to her home. It never went away, yet she continued to buy stuff.
It is mentally daunting right now to consider moving even more stuff into the spaces we have worked so hard to open up. But, something must be done.
