What is the number one question self storage renters want to know? According to StorageMart, it's "How much storage space do I need?" In an effort to answer the masses, StorageMart set out on a journey to discover just how much Thanksgiving dinner would fit into a self storage unit.
A crew of StorageMart staff documented their journey to max out a storage space with Thanksgiving goodness. What was in reality a 3-hour quest has been whittled down to a dynamic 4-minute video viewable on the StorageMart Self Storage YouTube channel.
In answer of the question we all want to know - How much Thanksgiving dinner fits into self storage? StorageMart today announced that a 5x5 self storage unit will hold more than 1,500 pounds of food. Inventory of the jam-packed storage unit included:
- 192 cans of Del Monte corn
- 120 cans of Ocean Spray cranberry sauce
- 24 family-size boxes of Minute rice
- 384 bottles of Nestle Pure Life water
- 63 pounds of russet potatoes
- 14 family-size boxes of Betty Crocker sweet potato casserole
- 216 bags of Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix
- 192 cans of Swanson chicken broth
In summary, staffers stuffed the storage space with a Thanksgiving feast the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri was more than grateful to receive. Upon completion of their quest to fill the storage space, StorageMart donated the goods to The Food Bank, who will distribute the goods across 32 counties in Missouri.
