Q: We are in the process of getting our condo ready to put on the market. We know that we have a lot of tidying up, staging and de-cluttering to do in order to transform our 1100 square foot condo, home to a family of 4, into something attractive to the potential buyer. My question is, what do people do with all their stuff? We've donated what we can, and have a few boxes of things in our damp, unfinished basement, but we still have things that we want in our new place that we have no space for in our current place. In particular, boxes of delicate items (wedding gifts, etc) and all of our children's books. How do we store these things for a few months without getting them damaged? What do people do with their things while going through the staging/selling process?
