Funny, sometimes we agonize over clearing clutter and throwing stuff out, then can't remember a month later what we actually THREW out!

Magazines and books are my weak spots, also in the shop, the OLD car parts I take off to replace (except the fliters and empty fluid bottles of course!)

I'm not a packrat... only because I approach this head on... if I don't need something I don't buy it. Amazing how this prevents things from piling up!

Both cars are parked in the garage every night... plenty of room.
