Here in Hampton our rental property has a one car garage....which is fine considering we have one car....lol. Yes we do park in our garage. I have noticed a trend in America as we go on walks or drive by homes with their garages open......they don't use them to park their cars in them because they are so full of junk. The garage can be a dangerous place to store clutter because it is out of the house and you don't feel like it is taking up any living space. Also many things stored in garages are duplicates of things found throughout the house because you have purchased them again since you didn't want to dig through your garage to find it =).
Our last garage we used grey totes. This time around we decided to use clear so we can easily see what is stored inside even if we didn't have the label. I couldn't find a big enough clear tote to store our tree though =(.
This is my husbands portable office he puts in the van for his luncheons and presentations.
All of our Christmas decorations are neatly stored away for December.
