Have you seen the show Hoarders on A&E? It's all about people who collect so much stuff in their house that it impedes their ability to live well. If producers from that show saw my garage right now, they might stage an intervention.
Fortunately, this is just temporary; these are all of the boxes from our move. In fact, we're already started getting rid of them. Right around the corner from us is a huge recycling/waste center. I've never seen anything like it back home. It is a huge parking lot filled with dumpsters. Each dumpster is labeled with a type of waste, e.g. "cardboard," "motor oil," "garden waste," "florescent lights."
We've gotten rid of two car-loads already and probably only have one left. Sorry A&E. You'll have to find a different family to profile :)
