Time for a Bigger House? Or Just Need more Space? (AD)

 Time for a Bigger House? Or Just Need more Space? 

With my children getting older, we seem to be acquiring more 'stuff' and lately the storage in our home, or lack of it, is becoming a bit of an issue. The kids are getting bigger which seems to make our house feel smaller. Maybe it's because of all the things they now have and need. The school equipment, the sports team kits, the holidays accessories and so on. 

Most of their 'stuff' gets used every day so doesn't need storing but then there's this pile that just sits there with no where to go. The memory boxes, the childhood treats and the toys they no longer play with but are too attached to, to throw away. What do you actually do with it all?

That is the question I've been thinking a lot about lately. I don't want to throw it away as that would make the kids feel sad but there simply isn't room in our house to store it for much longer. We can't afford to move to a bigger house and we can't really afford to extend our current house either so that's why I've had to think outside of the box for a different sort of solution to our problem. Now Storage self storage could solve all our problems. They're a  family run business that offers personal storage with the added peace of mind that all of their storage units are fully insulated to protect your items from the elements and keep them in pristine condition. Somewhere safe to store our keepsakes and special belongings safe and secure, that sounds like a great solution or definitely one to be considered.

How do you make room for all the 'stuff' in your house? I'd love to know. I'm so useless at making room for things that we don't need. I'm always watching those DIY programmes to make storage myself but I'm just no good at it so I guess this is the best kind of solution for me. I'd still love to hear what you do in your home though. Where do you store your 'stuff'?
