I really did clean out my garage. Really. And then I went on vacation. And then I came back and it was cold and depressing. Brrr!
Just as I said I would do in early April, I tackled my garage. I literally pulled just about everything out of it, shop-vacced the walls (buh-bye creepy spider eggs), recycled and trashed the junk (ciao cheesy cheetah), and grouped everything that I put back in. How much did I spend? Some sweat, tears (of relief) and a big fat ZERO dollars.
This was just the first step of the process. Now that I know what I own, and because it’s grouped together, I can easily see how much of any one type of thing I have. My wheels are turning for real now – NOW I can think about how I really want my space to function for me. I’m thinking of bringing in some pegboard so I can hang up all my shovels and rakes, and ripping out some of those old crusty shelves and building some new ones in between the studs.
I found some good resources online for inspiration. If you’re thinking of tackling your own garage, check ’em out:
