I use our garage for equipment storage, and it takes a considerable amount of space to do it. I also have a workbench, and tools galore, power and hand tools. I have a small refrigerator, and a Bose Wave Radio, a true man's paradise. That was the deal. I got the garage, she got her workspace in our little Tiki-style Hut. As more and more of her stuff started getting in the garage, it became impossible to work, and downright unsafe to do anything, in the garage. The Tiki Hut is spotless. So I convinced her to have a garage sale, to get rid of some crap, after more than a year of asking. What does she do ? She tells her sister. Who should have a show of her own…. Her bright idea, combine their stuff for the SAME garage sale….you know where this is going ? This was two months ago. Now I have a garage full of BOTH of their crap, my van is full of equipment & tools, I can't get at my bench, and the Tiki Hut, and my sister-in-laws garage, are still spotless.
