After a year of downsizing, estate sale, and many carloads of donations, we still seem to have had every closet in the house full of miscellaneous things. To get these into our storage unit we started over, renting a slightly larger unit (10 x 15 ft) and purchasing steel shelving units, six in all. The shelves, from Home Depot, proved very easy to assemble and it took only two visits to get them up and move the contents of the smaller unit moved. From there we began adding boxes from the house.
