But there are also a great deal of people with garages who still have to park their cars out in the driveway, because there’s no room in the garage. And why is that? Because the garage is full of junk.

Garages often become a catch-all for various odds and ends, because it’s a good place to toss things to get them out of the way. Especially if you’re entertaining, you can just toss a pile of books or a stack of papers or a bag of clothes into the garage, if you don’t have a
