Well, imagine this: If all the self-storage units in this country were combined, it would cover a land area of 78 square miles. That’s three times the size of Manhattan Island all under one roof. All of that, just to stockpile the junk that we can’t already fit in our closets, basements, attics, and garages. Wow!
What do we do with all that stuff? Apparently nothing, that’s why it’s being stored. We aren’t using it but, we pay good money to keep it dry and secure just in case we might need it one day. It seems to me that is just too much stuff. As the Director of a ministry that cares for hurting families and children, I sure can think of better ways to spend 22.6 billion dollars. But, that’s just me.
Take Away: It seems to me that is just too much stuff.
