The thermostat is rising. The coats have been stowed away. It's time to shed that winter weight. No, not the weight on your body - but all those extra pounds stored away in your garage. You can admit it - your garage has seen better days. You're not alone. Folks throughout Greater New Orleans use their garages as a makeshift dumping ground for just about everything.
