Look Out....I'm Onto The Garage!!!



It's Tuesday....that means another Tackle I will take on for the week!! This week it is all about the overflow grocery/storage area that is in our garage. We just do not have enough space in our kitchen for all the groceries/paper products!! Um....no it is not that I have a slight stockpiling problem...LOL LOL

Let me explain the storage in our garage...There is a wooden cabinet....about 5 feet tall by 1 1/2 feet wide and 2 storage units (about 5.5 feet high by 3 feet wide), of the storage units I only really use 2 shelves for groceries/household products....the others are for garage stuff.

Here are the before pictures.....




Here are the much better organized after shots..


Now...we can actually see what we have in excess...it's gonna be great...I can feel it!! LOL LOL You just do not know how many times I go out to the garage in the midst of cooking dinner to get a bottle of "X" and find out then that we have no more!!! Grrr!! Hopefully this ritual becomes a thing of the past!!! LOL LOL

It took about 45 minutes from start to finish....and as always the kiddies helped me tackle this project too!!! Little Man loves to be the strong one to move all the heavy stuff!! And he does a great job at it...he always reminds me of what a strong helper he is...and how sometimes Mommy's are just not strong enough to lift heavy things.....If he only knew what his Mommy has lifted over the years...I think he'd be amazed.... LOL LOL

Great job! You toatally can tell the difference in organization. Doesn't it make you feel good? Not to mention you know what is there and you can find things! Nice blog BTW, stop by my blog, I am tackling an outhouse, not a bathroom but yes an outhouse!

Wow this looks really great. Here in AZ, it's about 110 inside the garage, so it makes for a great excuse to not clean the mess up, for at least 8 months out of the year. Way to go!! Have a great week.

What a great tackle. I LOVE your header too. Very cute.

That's a good project! I'm a little bit of a stockpiler too. :)

stop pretending like you have an organization problem. I've been to your house and I have never seen anything remotely disorganized. I am looking at your before photos and I still don't see anything....

I have an idea. Why don't you perform a civil service on Wednesdays and clean a organizationally disadvantaged family's home? Like mine! The history channel could run a special on the relics in my garage..
