A few years ago, when I started moving into my fiance's house, I put a bunch of stuff into a rented storage unit, planning to sell my old house. Then we decided to keep that old house as a get-away cabin. So I moved all the "storage" stuff back there. I did this 100% myself, no one else was involved at all. You would not believe how much stuff I am "missing". A few things that come to mind right now:

An antique lamp- GONE.
Two boxes of DVD's (about two hundred) - disappeared
One big plastic tote full of music CD's - went to Mars ??
A bunch of clothing - evaporated
An old red backpack full of hiking gear - walked off

Haha, when I got married, we bought a bunch of fancy silverware. When we boxed out our stuff for remodeling, we only kept the strictly necessary silverware for daily use when we moved to our tiny apartment.

Dinner knives, we brought 3 with us. One for me, one for wife, one spare. Guess how many dinner knives we have now, 3 years later
All of the other knives went AWOL

😂😂😂

I thought this was a good idea, as I"ve done the same thing.

Oh hell..this "upgrade" won't let me post an Amazon link apparently. Search QR smart labels. You stick em on the totes, use the app to record what in that tote and then scan the label with your phone when you're looking for something.

With this you leave the tag and change the list in the app as you take stuff out of the box. App is free.

I came across this box SO MANY TIMES through the years that I thought had some spare plates and mugs.
Right? Wrong. Scroll down to see what I found

- Fender American Standard Strat case candy: hang tags, spare tremolo arms, etc. I bought this guitar new in 2012, my first American strat.
