Storage Totes

Postby Jabberwalk [OP] » March 16th 2016, 9:42pm

Anyone looking to store/move things in totes for your van (I have an '03), I recommend these. You can tightly place 6 in the rear with the back seat out, or 12 is you double stack. They are more "rubbery" than most hard plastic totes and very durable. They are a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

Now hide those totes before your wife decides that they are perfect for storing her holiday decorations. Don't ask how I know....

One of my students is a most practical fellow. Since his family lives in a relatively small house, his wife suggested that they rent a storage unit to store all their xmas decorations in from year to year.

He did the math and figured out that it would be cheaper to throw them away every year and buy new vs the cost of renting storage. Even cheaper if they'd donate the decorations to Goodwill or similar and take a tax write off.

He stopped short of going one step further in the practicality continuum. That would have been to say "Honey, I spent another $100 this month on the storage unit" and then in reality, spend the money on hookers and booze.

So I guess he's not THAT practical.
