    Thanks for your tips on how to pack things when renting a self-storage unit. After moving out of my apartment, I’ve decided to leave my belongings for the meantime in a storage unit while I’m still looking for another new place to stay. With that said, I shall then follow your advice to make an inventory of the items and keep them somewhere in the room that I can easily find.
