    file away in storage

    If I were to document that I'm putting an old, unused desk in storage and not going to use it anymore, could I say "I'm filing it away in storage."?

    That doesn't sound natural.

    We file documents — not furniture.

    How could I describe, if I needed to document the desk being put in storage?
