Storing Things

I was adamant that I didn’t want to store anything. It just made no sense to me–you pay for storage and it winds up costing you more than it would have cost you to replace the things and/or you have things stored at no cost to you and it winds up costing you more to ship them out cross-country than it would have cost you to replace the things.

My mother is adamant that I store my kitchen things in her garage if I’m not bringing them with me, mostly because the stuff is either very new or has sentimental value. She’s offered me a corner of her garage for a year or two. So, I figure that the only way I’ll get her off my back about this subject is to let her get involved a bit. Therefore, when she comes to pick up the furniture my sisters want, I’ll let her take off with a few boxes of the kitchen stuff I’ll miss the most–my dad’s casserole dishes and mixing bowls, my blue willow, my collection of beer glasses, and a few other items.

This isn’t entirely altruistic, of course, nor frugal, because it’ll give me an excuse to stock up on new, more RV-friendly things! I want to get a lot of ‘popware’; that is silicon and plastic items that store flat, lighter pots and pans, light dishes, etc. I do so love setting up a new home. 🙂
