Default so my car is leaking a lot of oil... how to clean?

I still haven't gotten my frikken engine (anoyed!) so I'm still driving my POS impreza L.
NOw it has an oil leak coming from the oil pan (asshat crashed the car and br0k3d it) which isn't a huge deal execpt for the fact that I'm leaving oil everywhere i park.
I feel bad because I'm leaving marks (somewhat big) everywhere I park at home (on street parking) and I'd like to clean some of it up. Possible? not possible?

I thought you were Mexican?

If you park your car in the yard, then you don't have to worry about oil cleanup!

You can get some stuff in your local auto parts place. Looks like cat litter.

i was thinkin about the pan, but I don't know where I'd put it when I leave..I don't have a garage or nething.
I could put it in the car, but that blows and can be "messy"

no point in doing that, waste of money. Also don't have a garage to do it.

edit:waste of money becasue I'm not buying another oil pan if I have one coming in. Just waiting on it.
