Nightmare in Garage!!

Update: 2-17-15
Life got crazier, haven't had a chance to get back in there, soon! 
Will keep you posted! 

After being inspired from Pinterest for garage storage, 
I decided it's TIME for me to DO IT!!


Yeah, I know, it's a disaster!!
Can't believe I'm posting this for all the world to see!


But starting off right for the year,
 I knew I needed to get this garage under control!

For months, my son had his truck parked in here.
That took up the entire right side!

BEFORE
  So as soon as I got the space back I started purging the house and dumping it all in the garage.

(Isn't that what a garage is for? To store our "stuff")

Good thing I don't have a husband . . . wait! 
Could this be WHY I don't?  

Anyways . . . 
BEFORE
By the way, 
I have about 10 pcs. of furniture on my back patio that need to come in here! 

You can see, I had SOME organization in place, but need to make room for a workshop, a car, projects, & massive storage.

One of the issues I have to face here, living in AZ. is that I can not store my paints, glues, or anything that extreme heat can alter or damage, 
during summer in garage.

I have most of that stuff in my laundry closet (dang!)

So, I spent several hours in and out,
 sorting, 
moving shelves around, 
purging, (you'd be proud of me, Peter Walsh!)
 planning, etc yesterday.

Finally I had to call it a night, and do homework.

Here's the garage this morning . . . 
IN PROCESS

I know it doesn't look like much, but I'm happy with the progress. . . 
I will go step by step as to what I did in the end . . .

Today, after Chemistry, I am buying some pegboard, hooks, and lumber.
My goal is to not spend more than $50 and be done by Friday.
I am leasing the house, so I want to be able to take whatever I build, or be willing to leave it for next renter. 

Day 2 coming . . .

Sunday

Touching base . . .

Happy New Year!! 
I know I've kinda fallen off the blog wagon
and I have MISSED you all and all my projects.

Life happens, and it's not a bad thing, 
just having to prioritize and manage my time.

I'm almost finished with my Associates degree, which
has taken me 4+ years to accomplish.

Once it's done, I will have my AA and will have all my pre-req's for nursing completed!

In between all this, I work at my own business doing home care on weekends,
3 generations of family have moved back home with me for a while,
and of course I attempt to create, scavenge and blog!
These are my de-stressers, so I'm not giving them up,
just learning how to manage my time!!

Hope you all stay with me, and follow in my journey,
because I know many of you are wearing multiple hats in life, 
and if I can do this and accomplish even little successes,
YOU CAN!!

I'm planning to revamp my whole blog, re-design, and re-structure my blogging life
come the new year 2015!
I want to spread my wings, share in many more different medias, and just keep moving forward!
I hope you will continue to follow me and PLEASE comment, email or keep in touch!!
Hugs and Smiles,
Theresa
