In between semesters don’t trash your stuff, pack it up and store it! Store you belongings in a self storage unit, you provide the lock and keep the key.
Most college towns like Miami, Los Angeles, Houston, New York and Denver have many storage facilities to choose from. And because many self storage facilities offer discounts to students, it makes it cheaper than buying new stuff the following semester. Save even more money by sharing the unit with a trusted friend. A typical 5 x 5 x 8 unit will hold the contents of two person dorm without furniture.
