WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2010) -  Wondering how self storage facilities can help you organize your life or when to use a self storage unit as an extension of your home? How about learning how to de-winterize your boat before you remove it from the long-term storage lot or what to do with all that winter stuff when spring finally hits? U-Store-It Trust (NYSE: YSI) plans to answer these questions and more through its new blog at blog.ustoreit.com.

The blog will feature a variety of content, including tips to help people stay organized while moving or remodeling, ways to maintain your valuable belongings and get even more life out of the items already in storage, and insight on how to maximize living space throughout the year.
