We are going to be packing up our house and putting everything into storage and I am not sure how I should store my albums which I have lots. Things will be in storage for 3-4 years as we are off travelling in our caravan.
Don't leave it with your parents! It will end up in the basement and get ruined by water damage!
Personal experience. Yes it's hard to let go. Those were a really good collection of baseball cards and comics.
Do you have a longtime friend or do you have family you can leave them with? If you put them in regular storage it would have to be temperate controlled - definitely. Even then I worry about bugs and things. Best in someone's home, even if you just leave your favorite scrapbooks with someone.
My mother lives 10 hours from us but if we took off for several years (and BIll has considered taking overseas jobs for years at a time for us), - we left for an extended time, I would drop them off with her.
