(Strip Number 4986, Original Publication Date, 24 June 1988)
Panel 1: As Elly does her gardening, Anne comes to the fence to congratulate her on getting a new kitchen before explaining that it's driving her nuts.
Panel 2: As she points to a huge pile of wreckage, she tells Elly what's driving her crazy: John's habit of letting Steve have all the stuff he tore out of the old kitchen.
Panel 3: When Elly asks, Annie says that yes, Steve actually does have plans for all of this stuff.
Panel 4: The problem is that he never actually bothers doing anything with all of the crap he salts away.
Summary: Again, this is rather familiar to me. There was always going to be a use for various things but either it was not gotten around to or done in a slipshod manner.
