Clean up the garage , gain back some space instead of arguing about it. It looks very messy , items that are laying around and have been for a long period should be discarded . I purge ocassionally , if I didn't the junk would accumulate and overwhelm what little space I have. The first time , it was hard parting with treasures that had been stacked in boxes , I needed room more than I needed to archive un needed items , now it's easy to sort through and toss old useless crap and has become an anual event . Ever watched that television program called Horders ?
