Take a few minutes and think about your garage. Does the garage door open to reveal an interior that is meticulously organized, clean, and neat? Do you find yourself leaving the door open to allow the neighbors to pick up a few pointers on how they can improve the domestic dumping ground they call a garage? Do you drop subtle hints in conversations about how your overhead racks and cabinets give you so much space that you have room to park your new golf cart next to your large SUV? Every morning as you drive to work, do you have to play a game of “dodge car” just to make it down the street making you wonder why the neighbors don’t just park in their garages?
Or are you that neighbor that has not parked in your garage in years? Right now, close your eyes and try to remember the last time you spent more than five minutes in your garage. The truth is your garage is more of a storage unit that is reaching full capacity. Spring rolls around each year and you tell yourself that you’ll get it organized next year. You fight your way through the boxes, bikes, and clutter to find the lawn equipment, and you refuse to open the garage door all the way because you’re embarrassed by the mess. The last time you opened the garage door, a soccer ball rolled into the street and almost caused a neighbor to take out your mailbox with their car. Your garage has become an eyesore and a hazard.

Mostly "A"s: My Hot Mess
You would clean your garage if you could clear a path to the garage door. It's just short of a landfill. Boxes are stacked high in front of bigger boxes that sit on top of stuff, and it’s all piled on the mysterious junk underneath. The unidentifiable odor makes you cringe, and it seems to fluctuate daily. It may be chemicals, dirty socks, mold, or animals. You keep telling yourself it's fine and that you know where everything is, and the smell must be from the trash bin outside. Is it really?

Mostly "B"s: Hobbyist, Hoarder, or Both
You have it all. As soon as you start to think about throwing something out, you remember that one time you needed that extra bicycle helmet that you gave to a neighbor down the street. Never again! You own more bikes than there are people living in your home. There are duplicates of everything…kids' toys, skateboards, roller blades, deflated balls, and tools are everywhere with no place to belong. The last time you went to look for a hammer, it took you 45 minutes and your 12-year-old ended up borrowing one from the neighbor.
