Storage Issues

I think it is safe to assume that I have outgrown my apartment. I love my apartment and don’t really want to move but I am running out of storage options. I remember when I first moved in and thought the place was huge and that I would never be able to fill it up, I apparently took it as a challenge. Although I have spoke about these issues before I have never really taken pictures of it before..
The closet
The closet, admittedly this doesn’t look so bad until you realize the dimensions of the closet. It’s only about 5ft tall by 4ft wide but it is 15ft long and it is packed throughout as tight as possible with doll boxes and figures boxes.
More bedroom piles
I already have two full storage units out in town and I really did not wish to rent a third so I have actually been piling the boxes from all of the newer acquisitions in my bedroom, this particular pile is in the corner of my bedroom and goes from floor to ceiling ^^;

The far side of my bedroom by the windows is actually inaccessible because I have so many boxes piled up ^^;

I bet you are wondering where I am going with this post, it is not going to result in a sales post although now that I know I am not going to Anime Boston this year I am considering selling the content of my trade box as at this point it is just taking up needed space lol. I spoke to my property manager on Friday, discussing my lease that runs out in a few months wondering if the one apartment larger than my own on the property might be available it doesn’t look like it would be available in the time frame I want but the property manager did inform I had forgotten about a free storage unit in the building of my apartment complex.  I am going to use the storage unit to get the anime figure boxes that are currently in my bedroom out. I spent all morning sorting through them and packing them up to prep them to go into storage.
Off to storage
I made lots of discoveries in the process of packing everything like Super Dollfie/ Dollfie Dream shipping crates can hold nine standard nendoroid cases each.
Off to storage
I also decided that I am going to completely rearrange my apartment tomorrow as I don’t like the current layout. I am effectively going to move my living room into my dining room completely take over the living room area for use as my doll room and I haven’t quite decided where my dining room table is ending up, I eat at it so rarely I am tempted to just use it as a display place honestly at this point ^^; . I have more work to do with the boxes now but first I have to break down my pinky tree so I have a place to put all of these damned shipping crates of boxes ^^;

    My house doesn’t have a dining room at all, it’s so rarely necessary though that I don’t mind. I agree with your decision to fill in the dining room, I’d do the same.

    My empty boxes will be going all into the attic this spring. In the spring we’ll be laying down some boards up there.

      Most of the time it is just me and the zilla and she is rather insistant I sit with her in her toy room and sit at the tiny dora the explorer table she got for Christmas and eat there. I honestly can’t remember the last time we really used the dining room. I did get all the boxes pictures plus another large load down to storage (there is still space too :O ). I am in the process of moving all of my living room stuff to the dining room at the moment but I can’t do anything myself at the moment with my ribs being messed up so I am kind of dependant on when people have free time to help me ^^;

      I already filled my attic unfortunately >_< I have definitely maxed out on space here lol.
