Storage space in your house is for YOU!  If you’re struggling for space, don’t store other people’s stuff for them – your house has to work for you. Grown-up children are the worst for this. Note for all grown-up children: Go to your parent’s home asap, remove everything you have left behind there, and deal with it yourself!!! Most parents are so kind-hearted, they won’t tell you they need the space, they will just cram themselves into what’s left!! Some leave entire bedrooms as they were, because you’ve “moved into a smaller house and can’t fit everything in”. Trust me, I visit these parents, and see the horror in their eyes when I suggest they ask their children to collect what they want to keep, and turn their room into a nice guest room/office/storage room, which would be much more useful. Go and collect your stuff – now!!!!
