My husband is a contractor.
This means that my garage has become the home of many tools, equipment, and materials.
My husband has done an amazing job of organizing our garage the best way he can. But at some point, we have come to the realization that we just need to do something about the situation that looks as if it is out of control when in fact it really is not.
The real problem is that we just have way too much stuff stored in our garage.
All of the regular things you would expect to find in a homeowners garage have been given very little attention because of the fact that we have large air compressors, table saws, drill presses, concrete mixers, ladders, kerosene heaters, and the list goes on and on.
There is no longer any room for my yard tools, lawnmower, snow blower, gardening supplies, or any other regular garage stuff.
I am so excited to get working on this project.
However, I realize that it is a big project and I want to avoid burning myself out. Therefore, I will be tackling this project in stages.
The first step is to create a space for my yard tools, lawnmower, and other gardening supplies.
I think the best thing we can do is remove all of this stuff from the garage and give it it’s own home.
Rubbermaid has some really great sheds.
They come in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit every yard and need. Also, they are attractive and heavy-duty so they will actually enhance the look of your yard and stand up well against elements.
We will add some shelving and other organizational products from Rubbermaid to make the best use of the space. It will be my own space. I have never really had a space of my own sharing a contractor’s garage.
Once I have the shed in place, filled and organized with my stuff I will move on to my husband’s area.
There are a lot of things that will have to remain the same just because he knows how he needs to function in his work area.
But I hope to add better storage options for him as well as an area for my son to keep his toys that aren’t this box!
I am really looking forward to this project, and I’ll be sure to share my progress with you.
Also, we are lucky enough to have Rubbermaid employee/ organizational expert @RubbermaidErin following along and giving advice to people in the comments whenever she can.
So don’t be shy =)
