I've read 3 definitions from Oxford Dictionary about the definition of out of the way. I.e.:
- no longer stopping somebody from moving or doing something
- finished; dealt with
- used in negative sentences to mean ‘unusual’
However, it seems like the definition doesn't match with the usage of the phrase in the sentence below:
We keep our skis up in the loft. They're out of the way up there.
I took that sentence fron my exercise book, by the way. I wonder what its meaning is. Is it like out-of-reach or something?
