A 5x5 storage unit is the size of a small closet

It fits furnishings of a small bedroom, including a small mattress set, a dresser, a TV, and several small to medium-sized boxes.  It is also perfect for document storage and seasonal decorations.  Sporting equipment such as snowboards, waterskis, wakeboards, fishing gear are other great uses for this unit.

Group your boxes by sturdiness or weight, placing heavier and sturdier boxes on the bottom, and more fragile items on top.  You can maximize space by using a portable shelving system, or stacking boxes on sturdy furniture.
