When my husband and I decided to move to Egypt for a year, we could only make it work by moving out of our apartment and stashing all our stuff in self-storage. We chose an Extra Space Storage facility (incidentally; this was before I wrote for this blog) and had our movers arrange all our couches, tables, and boxes, Tetris-like, in a 10’ x 10’ unit. We moved...
