I haven’t talked about this yet because I wanted to gather my thoughts on the matter. Around a month ago, I went to my storage unit to put my blankets inside for the day (converting my van from a bedroom to a work van) and the door to my unit was wide open and almost all of its contents were pouring out of it!

It turns out that there were 22 units like mine tossed. The crooks only took weapons(!) but not from me because you’re not even allowed to have weapons in those units. I’m shocked that people were keeping that sort of thing in their storage units!

I guess I felt violated as people say when this sort of things happens but at the same time I looked at the situation as a chance to go thru my belongings again, get rid of some things, and get organized.

Pretty soon I’ll be moving all of my stuff out of there and I have a feeling not all of it is going with me to my new home. I doubt I’ll have room for it all. No big deal.

I probably won’t need any kitchen items as there is a full kitchen in this place. I will probably need to buy a comforter and some towels. Hope I make a lot of money this month! I feel pretty insecure about paying rent again. Then I remind myself that I’ll probably be saving some money cooking at home. We’ll see.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    Oh that’s disturbing Maureen, sorry this happened to you.

    I hope you will indeed continue to make enough money to keep up with the rent. You do small contract type jobs right? That is a special kind of hell, the constant hustle. I can’t do it that’s for sure.

    Think of you often and always hope the best for you.

    Generally storage places have cameras, monitoring services & alarms… what happened in this storage place that some crooks got in so many units & nobody noticed ?? The place should be liable for this sort of situations, shouldn’t they ? Were the renters given notice of this invasion have taken place, or you find it quite by chance ?

    Sorry about this mishap, storage place should be responsable for all this…

    At least your unit wasn’t targeted just one of 22 random break-ins.

    Interesting. What an odd place to steal from. There’s so much to sort through.

    Probably just bust open the door, look through it quick, then move onto the next one. I am surprised that the storage place didn’t call you and let you know they were burglarized.
