There was no storage initially. If you have too much stuff, you can either put it in the garage/attic, or you can just throw it away.

Texas’ Odessa was where the first modern self storage facility was established. They were extremely useful and very successful.
In a few short years, self-storage had become a standard feature all over the world. Self storage was cheaper than adding more storage to a home, or buying a larger house. Salesmen and businessmen found self storage very helpful. Everyone realized the value in renting additional space and created the Self Storage Industry.
