Saturday was such a nice, warm day here. We have a garage that's a separate building (this house was built in 1975 when that was the norm) and it is, of course, not used as a garage but for storage. My husband has been a tad bit unhappy for a long time with all "my stuff" being in there and in his way. Right. It couldn't possibly be anything like this:
Nope, none of those are in the way.
However, my off season clothes, canning jars and pressure cookers, Christmas decorations, etc. were taking up way too much of his space. :) So I just went out and bought myself one of these:
Mine isn't exactly like this one, but it's very similar. It has two windows so I can put some plants in there in the winter and it has a loft on three sides so I have tons and tons of room! It's 12' x 16' and I added shelves all along the back wall, a potting shelf in front of one window, a shelf with a formica top in front of the other window, a 6' table on one side and a shelf on the other side. All my Christmas decorations are now in red plastic tubs, my fall decorations are in green ones and my spring decorations are in blue ones - all in the loft. Canning jars and supplies as well as small appliances I don't use often are on two shelves. Off season clothes are all in clear tubs, labeled and on shelves. Old pictures, photo albums and old yearbooks are in tubs ready to be sorted and organized and doled out to my unsuspecting children this summer. :) I even took my boots and winter shoes out there - all labeled and in shoe boxes, of course!
Of course since I took all my winter clothes and shoes out on Saturday it was 40 degrees, rainy and windy today! That's spring in Arkansas.
