Mostly "A"s: A Hot Mess

You would clean your garage, if only you could clear a path between the car and the entry door. It's just short of a landfill. So much junk is piled on junk; you're just living off the stuff piled on top, and that's usually boxes of bulk products such as hundreds of plastic water bottles. You keep telling yourself it's fine and that you actually know where everything is, but you really don't.

Mostly "B"s: A Hoarding Hobbyist

Like Elsa said in “Frozen,” “Let it go!” The Hoarding Hobbiest won't let go of anything. You own more bikes than there are people living in your home, and most of them have flat tires (the bikes, not the people). There are duplicates of everything…kids' toys, skateboards, roller blades, deflated balls, and tools, tools everywhere with no place to call home.

Mostly "C"s: Hot Rod Obsessed

You still have a framed picture of your first car on your desk. Each Saturday morning is time for a carwash and wax. You hose off your concrete daily so nothing smears onto your tires. A consummate tinkerer, your garage is filled with tools, and, of course, it's heated so you can work on your ride 24/7.

Mostly "D"s: A White Glover

Your garage is as immaculately clean as your home. There is a doormat on top of your doormat. A doctor could handily perform major surgery on your cement floor. Tools, bikes, and toys are all smartly aligned and arranged alphabetically. Every surface of The White Glover's hollowed space is polished and gleaming.
