Need More Storage Space? Rent A Small Storage Unit And Fill It Up Completely

by Irma Soto

After storing enough items in your home, you will run out of room. This will lead to a situation in which you need to determine how you want to handle not having enough storage space. If you do not want to make any permanent changes in your home and you do not want to stop picking up items that you find, you will need to find a way to increase how much storage space you have.

Renting a storage unit is a great solution to this issue. If you want to minimize spending and use up all the space in storage, you should consider renting a storage unit and getting strategical with putting certain items away that are easy to use for filling in every nook and cranny.


A collection of CDs and DVDs is worth putting into storage because you can fit them into the same-sized boxes so easily. This means that you can pick up a few tall shelving units that fit into the storage unit and then stack boxes full of CDs and DVDs to fill in as much space as possible.

The great thing about CDs and DVDs is that they do not weigh much at all, so you will find it beneficial to put these boxes towards the top of the unit as they will not be hard to get down.


If you own a lot of books, you may know that you will not be reading most of them for a long time. Storing books should open up a lot of storage space in your home, especially because you should be able to transport every box of books to the storage facility without a problem. Putting the boxes into the unit should not be hard because you can keep them all close to the floor.


Once you become an adult, you may start to hold onto papers such as pay stubs, tax documents, vehicle upkeep invoices, and online receipts. Over time, you may end up building a large collection of papers that you want to keep in storage in case you need them at any time. This is the perfect kind of item to put into a storage unit since you do not need fast access to the papers.

An advantage that comes with storing papers is that they are also easy to fit into a medium-sized box. Then, you can put them above the book boxes and below the media boxes as this is where you will have a lot of empty space that is waiting for boxes that are not too light or heavy.

Using these tips will help you fill a small storage unit to the brim to maximize value and clear up plenty of storage space inside your house.
