The garage...

Yep, I did it, I actually faced the heat and cleaned out my garage!  I bought two more storage racks and filled up my two trash cans.  Now I have home and Christmas on one side of the garage, and tools, gardening, and auto stuff on the other.  All organized and cleaned up.  Have you every noticed the stuff you have that you had no idea you have when you start cleaning up.  Found all kinds of stuff that I can use, and all kinds of stuff for the trash can, and all kinds of stuff to give away.   Result, a clean, organized garage, at least until I'll have to do it again. :)

We worked in our garage for a little while this weekend. Result: lots of things to donate to the Humane Society which helps the community and the homeless animals!

Ditto to what Jill said! It always makes me feel SO GREAT when I do something like that! Here's to you!

But is there room for the car?????? Got to have my car in the garage. That would keep you from piling other stuff in there, too!

I don't even want to think about cleaning the garage, even with room for the car!!

What, no picture?? I cleaned my garage out a few months back. Seems like it was mostly a storage unit for my children. Now we can fit one car in the three car garage. In my defense, we have no basements here in Arizona so we have no place other than the garage for storage. I would love to see what you did so I can get some ideas for better organizing my own space. Enjoy the coming week.

Organizing and cleaning always makes a person feel good doesn't it? I hope you are putting up your feet and relaxing now!

Good for you! If your garage is as hot as mine is, I don't know how you worked in it, though. That's a job I will be doing when it gets cool.
Have a nice week and enjoy that clean garage!

Oh Susan,
I'll bet it feels so good to get the garage organized!
That's a chore that we need to get to one of these next days.

Have a great week!
