Bigger Storage Space

Friday, after getting the tags for the truck, we went to our storage place and switched to the bigger unit I have been wanting for two years.  Once the Salvation Army comes and gets the washing machine, fridge and freezer Tuesday, I will have room to organize a work space!

Edit: I am calling the Goodwill tomorrow. The lady who insisted on calling the Salvation Army for pick up neglected what I had told her, the washingmachine needs a new x-large load censor.  Salvation Army wants everything in pretty much brand new condition.  At least Goodwill will employ some one who will do the small repairs like a gasket for the freezer and a new sensor for the washingmachine and some one will be glad to have that huge old thing that does a whole bedload of blankets in one go.  I will miss the old beast! So I have no idea when I will be able to sort out the moving mess in storage, but it will happen.  In the mean time I am working on the Dior project as soon as my muscles stop aching from the moving!   

Also, we fell in love with a used R-pod trailer at a local Cruise America agent, and while we may not get the credit union to grant a loan soon enough to get it, we may eventually get a newer used one later on. They are pretty awesome and we could park it at storage for 90 a month, and take it camping.  At this point, we are seriously done with apartments.  So many people are saying screw it and going mobile, it just makes more sense to get a travel trailer and go camping.  So when we can afford one (definitly sooner than we will get into an apartment!) we can down size to a smaller storage, put everything we need for the doll business in the trailer, and just use our park pass to enjoy using it.  There are quite a few of them out there for sale used in excellant condition.

  1. aernath here. YES! We fell hard for the R-pods too! You'll probably get one before we do though. lol They used to be the only company around that did that size with toilet/shower. Now, there are several out there that have flat out copied R-pod, and made a few improvements. We also love the idea of the R-dome, basically a three sided tent that attaches to the side of the R-pod and basically doubles your space. That way you can be outdoors, but still under cover. Anyway. Good luck, I really hope you guys get a good one! They are so nifty looking and perfect for two people and a cat. And a few dolls. ~_^

  2. Is there a way to strangle blogger for not sending notifications about comments?
    From what I have seen, they go from used at 10,000 to new at around 15,000, so with the wait for a place being 5-7 years now, we could save up a down payment, and get a new one with a credit union loan.
    What do you mean a few dolls. >.>;; I could leave the hubby in storage....mwahhahahahaa! *Hugs*
