Tackle it Tuesday.. more garages!!

Here are some BEFORE shots of the garage.  We have 20 years of accumulated boxes, furniture and nails stuffed in a 2 car garage.

Some workers flattening boxes..
An overcrowded workbench
A fishing clean-up station, overcrowded.
Extra stuff...
 Basic organization problems:
1. Garage was used as a storage shed for miscellaneous things no longer needed.
2. There's a limit to how many EXTRA cardboard boxes every family should collect.  
3. Fear of getting rid of things.

Got rid of extra sink and moved this cupboard for extra space along wall.
Labeled drawers with basic masking tape.  Behind it is the new and improved fish-cleaning station.

Found some nice pieces of furniture-- You may be seeing this piece again in the future.
Check out the cool outfit! Here we are cleaning off a lot of the extra furniture and shelves.  This piece is going to be home for the gasoline type of products near the mower in back.  The rest of the extra furniture was given to neighbors.

Here's the neatened-up workbench.   There are jars of nails and screws along the back.  The tool box holds the hammers and stuff .  Underneath, we put recyclables and yard toys.

There are a few "choice" pieces of furniture that the owner wanted to give to family, so we made a nice home for them.  Along the back are the gasoline cans and corrosive materials. 

Done!  For more tackles, look here: 5 minutes for mom.

Wow what a big job, congrats on getting that done. We don't have a garage only my dad's and that is off limits so we manage to keep junk to a minimum.

Great Job! I wish I had your energy! I have sooo much to get done before the baby comes!

The garage isn't mine; it was a friend's. I have a "team" of workers now that the kids are teens and pre-teens. When we had babies, I didn't clean garages! It's a mid-life thing!

You are so amazing!

And thanks for the reminder that cleaning garages is not for the baby years. Mine looks just like your "before" pictures.

You're therefore incredible!

As well as many thanks for that reminder which cleansing garages isn't for that infant many years. My own appears the same as your own "before" photos.
