This last weekend, Derek, my husband said, "I have the urge to clean the garage." My jaw dropped and I immediately responded, "OK!" I didn't want him to loose that ambition because sometimes it doesn't last long. So, our Saturday was filled with dust, leaves and spiderwebs, but it was mighty refreshing to get it done. Ella was loving being outside and since it was 80 degrees, we worked up a bit of a sweat too.
|We began by getting absolutely everything out of the garage. That took some time because there was a whole lot of stuff crammed in there! NOTE: Our neighbor kid is on the weird big wheel thing. (they had to see what was going on.)|
|After the garage was cleared out, we swept and then started to get things off the concrete. Derek nailed this board to the wall to create a tool rack. Nicely done, eh?|
|We slowly started to add things back into the garage. We really wanted to think about the placement of each item, so perhaps, in the future, we would put them in the "right" place.|
|And there you have it: a much cleaner and more spacious garage.|
Not only did we work outside, I moved inside as well to get things organized in my closet while Ella was napping. Here's how that went.
|This is what our room looked like when I just dug in! Yikes!|
|Piles were then made: winter, summer, goodwill|
|Ta Da! A well organized closet.|
Wow, it makes me feel good to look at it! Give spring cleaning a try soon, it really does lift your spirits!
