So I live in a neighborhood where everyone has a garage... oddly enough as we were heading out today, I realized something. Over half of these people don't park their cars in their garages. Ya know why??
Seriously, the lady living next door to us puts this picture to SHAME. Laundry baskets, tall standing fans, big wall pictures, boxes of who knows what... YIKES. There is even one house down the road that has an ENTIRE wall of shelving on one side of their garage full of ........ shoes. Yes. 100+ pairs of shoes in the two-car garage.
From what I've seen anyone that parks in the driveway here has a garage that would rival an evil Halloween corn maze, except there's no room for walking paths. Call me crazy, but I have a funny feeling that junkola in there isn't going to be used anytime soon... why not, hmmmm, throw it out? I know we didn't pay extra for a two-car sized crap storage unit attached to our house. Our cars go IN the garage. Not in the driveway, while mounds upon piles of those creepy little ceramic frogs that sit in your garden take over your garage. Or old desk furniture. Or 200 pairs of worn out, fashion-backwards Payless* shoes. I just can't stand clutter in large, ominous amounts! (You know all those garden gnomes are going to amass at the foot of your bed one night, staring at you...........)
(Note that I do love Payless, just in moderation!)
