Quiver Killer for the Car-Light, Commuter, Family, Mountain and Snow biker?

I'm a year round commuter (8 miles each way), who also hauls kids around town on bakfiets/long tail, rides mountain bikes, does the occasional road ride and gets out on the snow in the winter months on a fat tire. My garage is full of bikes, each, I'd argue, with a distinct purpose.

That said, I get tired of all the maintenance and a little discouraged when I think about how much money is sitting in my garage. I've justified these bikes for years by the fact that I hardly ever use a car, but as my kids get old enough to ride on their own, I'm starting to wonder - is there a way to whittle the number of bikes I own down to a reasonable number?

I'm curious if any of you have had similar issues and, hopefully, solutions. I remember when I got started riding a lot more I had one bike and she was well loved.

Anyone got good ideas for fixes?
