Spring Cleaning - working in the garage
I've spent the last 3 days cleaning in the garage. Something that was beyond overdue. The attached garage to my house is a 3-car, but it is the "drive-through" style so it has 6 freakin' doors. (It's like a semi-circular driveway with the house in the middle. I only use 4 of the doors, the other 2 I use for wall space). I took everything out of the garage, opened up all the doors and ran a pressure washer over the whole thing. Man it is amazing how a garage just becomes a catch-all for the junk you have no idea where else to put. I filled up a few trash cans and as I put each item in there I was like "Why were we storing this? Why didn't we just throw this out 2 years ago instead of putting it in the garage? Why do we have a toaster in the garage?"
The other thing I did was clean out my tool box. I dumped all my tools into 3 totes and gave the box a proper cleaning (with the pressure washer). Sorted and organized all my tools, labeled the drawers, etc. The tool box had become another storage location for stuff I would never use. It's all sorted out now though. I had so many sockets!! I actually made up 3 entire 1/4" drive sets from my junk drawer! BTW- I no longer have a "junk" drawer. The junk is gone! (well, almost gone, there is still a pile of junk in the driveway, right next to the snowbank, yep there is still snow on the ground)
