As the new building is being built, I am in waiting mode so I thought I would embark on organizing the Storage Unit. There are a couple of reasons for doing this now:
- Opportunity to get rid of stuff I have not used for 2 1/2 years. Why move it next year?
- Still waiting to do the finish selections (wood floor, carpet, cabinetry, granite, etc) so I have time now. Doing the selections always take longer than you would expect.
- I also remember how much time it took to get qualified for the mortgage loan when I moved into the Stonebridge Lofts building. It was surprising how much time it takes to find and scan documents for the underwriters.
- I have noticed when I try to ‘find’ stuff, I am forever looking in multiple bins to find what I was looking for. Very time consuming.
The Unit itself is 4 feet by 8 feet and pretty full from what you can see in the pictures.
My plan is to go through each of the bins/containers and inventory each of them by creating a spreadsheet to capture the items and the location of the bins themselves. It will be a big undertaking!
