It is also something that can happen anywhere...

In an effort to assist the residents of Houston, Mayor Annise Parker announced...

Edgy. Fresh. Hip. Avant guard. These adjectives describe Manhattan Mini Storage. They are well known for their ads; some poked fun at New Yorkers, some at politicians, some at life. Regardless of the topic, they were the talk of the town. Manhattan Mini Storage is also known for their unique customers. Remember the ‘crazy piano guy?’ The guy who stored...

The bed and breakfast was a delightful place and I had a wonderful time in Carmel. People in the self storage industry have the opportunity to enter a contest  (that is just as wonderful) and win a free trip to...

When I was growing up, my father was a Scoutmaster for a Boy Scouts of America troop. I memorized the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. These memories came back to me as I learned about the family events that OMGstorage.com and the Girl Scout Council of Tropical Florida, Inc. are sponsoring. OMGsotrage.com participated in the family event that the Tropical Florida Girls Scouts...
