Man, lots of you guys have these clean, open space garages/basements with nothing like 15 year-accumulation of junk..

This is so wrong.
This is not living life to the fullest.

Beside, what do you do when you need that odd washer size...?

Upside of junk: today, in my pile(s) I found a thin metal rod to hold the hop meshbag hanger contraption, and an old wok lid that fits on my new, lid-less, alum. pot... Downside: frequent swmbo reminders "When are you...blabla"
You are looking at the hole in the doughnut and not the doughnut itself.
You primates are so predictable.

My garage is messy, but not overly cluttered. Most of the things that normal people keep in their garage (x-mas decorations, etc...) are in my storage unit.

the wife is a very organized individual.

half the basement is mine, spiderwebs and all, which i leave up to keep her out...

and the garage that's attached to our house, is actually a room for us kids to play in. it's pretty cold now, but we got a huge blast furnace bolted to the ceiling, and a tv with cable, table and chairs. it's the brew house, as well as a hang out.

My cellar is very very cluttered. Cannot even see the workbench just now. and even worse it is difficult to get to the fridge. Luckily the TV is beside the door so I can still see that. In the middle of clearing it out and it looks like a bomb has hit it.

My garage is very full since my last house had a 24'x30' shop and this house doesn't have a shop at all. It gets messy/cluttered and then we clean and organize and wait for it to clutter up again.
