    Our cars have ALWAYS been in our garage. I guess that's because I'm an immigrant?

    That REALLY made me LOL And we have a small garage. Shelving along 1 side and barely enough room on the front wall for our small upright freezer, garbage and recycle bins as well as an old particleboard bookcase I use for my gardening stuff-it sits in front of my car.

    At the moment, there is only 1 home on our block that keeps a vehicle in the driveway. And they are hoarders......I saw inside their front door once...a goat path to the kitchen is all I saw....so sad. They are wonderful people and very active outdoors.

    We've always been able to pull our cars into our garage - we just have more room now around them. The walls are lined with shelves, but stuff is off the floor for the most part.

    We may have been able to park our car in our garage for 3-4 years after we bought our house, in 1985. Since then it's been home to tires, tools, outdoor furniture, live pigs, memorabilia, Christmas decorations, unused paints and varnishes, detritus from elders' estates, furniture we may "need someday" planting solutions, lawn machinery and hand tools, car repair equipment, and on and on.

    Now, without a garage, we are forced to re-evaluate every year and give stuff away. DH still doesn't understand the beauty in that, but I do.

    That made me laugh! I take comfort in the fact that we never got as bad as that. Although it was pretty close.

    Notice she said "pigs," not "pig". . . Yes, tell us!

    No garage here, which may be a good thing. Would probably end up arguing over who got to use it. LOL.

    We have a small one car garage with a work bench, washer/dryer and it’s full of DH’s junk.
