The United States contains 2.3 billion square feet of self-storage space.
That’s more than seven square feet for every man, woman and child in the country, says Howard Mansfield, author of Dwelling in Possibility: Searching for the Soul of Shelter, in an article in The Dallas Morning News.
“The shed is a symptom of our cluttered lives,” Mansfield concludes. “Clutter is the cholesterol of the home.”
I don’t have a storage shed—although I’m sure I could fill up my seven square feet with the clutter in my home.
I think I’ll start my fall cleaning.
