We had a two car garage in the Midwest. We have streetparking in our Capitol Hill neighborhood. We also had a good sized patio, and luckily for us, we actually have a patio here in DC too. That is quite unusual for an 1800's building. So we take advantage of the space because you simply can't fit everything you own inside a tiny living place. Even though it takes up some square footage from the patio, we had a shed built to fit up snug against the fence. We use it for all the gardening equipment, and a place to store our luggage. It also houses the cushions from the outdoor chairs during the winter months. We did have covers for the seats, but decided it's easier to store in the shed especially when it rains during the rest of the year. So, as all things go, junk starts to accumulate and it was time to clear out the stuff that we didn't need anymore. Yesterday was a bright and sunny day to do the task so we unloaded all the contents on to the seats, threw a bunch of it away, and organized the rest all in the way it was intended. We do need to get a new pair of gardening gloves, and that's about it. Now we need to tackle the indoor closets for the same reason. Being in such a small place necessitates this cleansing activity at least every few years! Now we just need to find the energy to do it.
