Decorations of all kinds are often stored in self-storage units. Holiday decorations can be found in a lot of units because people tend to have at least several boxes of them taking up room in their homes, and they only need to use them once a year. Businesses sometimes store the decorations they put out during sales events; they may not have enough storage for all the decor in the business. 


Before just about everything started being done and saved on computers, there was paperwork. This is why many people and businesses sometimes have boxes upon boxes of paperwork. In some cases, they want or need to keep that paperwork. In other cases, they may just need to find the time to go through it all to decide what to keep and what to get rid of. Instead of keeping all of those boxes of old paperwork in their home or office, they often move it into self-storage.

There are many reasons why so many people end up storing baby items in a self-storage unit. Sometimes, they don't want to part with a lot of things from their child's past. They want to save things like their finger painting and other artwork, homework they have when they were younger, their baby clothes, and more. Other times, parents plan on having another child, so they put all of their baby items into storage.
