Ah, the cold weather has arrived and you’ve begun entertaining the thought of never leaving your home all winter long… same. It’s understandable, as the thought of going outside when it’s frigid and snowy sounds less than ideal, especially to:

  1. Find a storage place.
  2. Find a storage place that isn’t sketchy.
  3. Find a storage place that isn’t overpriced.
  4. Find a storage place that won’t have bed bugs, rats, hand grenades or human body parts (yes, those things have actually been found in storage units).

The good news is you won’t ever have to step foot outside to deal with storage if you use Stashable AND we’ve got a killer movie list that’s perfect for your I’m-never-leaving-the-house-this-winter motto.
