Garage Clean Out

Have you ever seen a garage that is so jam-packed with boxes and other stuff that there’s no room to park a car in there? Wait. . .did I just describe your garage?

In Arizona, where I’ve lived for the last seven years, basements and attics are a rarity, which leaves the garage as the sole storage place. Not surprisingly, we see a lot of cars parked in the driveway! But it doesn’t have to be that way.  Assuming that you would LIKE to be able to park your car in your garage, let me ask you a few questions:

What’s in your garage?  A lot of things that end up in our garage are there because we just didn’t have the courage to keep walking them to the curb. Look around. What do you see? To get a really good idea of what you have, group like items; for example, lawn and garden, camping equipment, holiday decorations, etc.

Would you rather have the stuff or the space?  Make a decision NOT to store anything that’s just taking up valuable space. If you’re holding onto things for grown children, tell them it’s time to come and get them.   Do you still have unopened boxes from three moves ago? Yes? Then you already know that you could live quite happily without that stuff.   Are you holding on to things because you paid “good money” for them? Why not sell them and get some of that cash back?

Are you maximizing your storage space?  Think vertical. Floor-to-ceiling shelving lets you get those boxes off the floor and out of the way. Hint: Use same-size storage boxes for easier stacking and a neater look.  Also look for ceiling-mounted storage platforms and hoists for bicycles, kayaks and canoes, and other items.

Is paying for off-site storage an option?  Let me answer that for you: NO! You’ve heard the saying: Out of sight, out of mind. Invariably, what happens when you rent storage space is that you end up paying month after month, year after year for stuff you’ve all but forgotten about.  If you need additional storage space for things you really do need and use, an outdoor shed may be a more affordable, convenient solution. Look at the variety of outdoor storage sheds offered by Lifetime to find a shed that suits your storage needs.

Hot Chocolate Delight!
Is there anything more fun in the wintertime than coming in after an afternoon of fun in the snow and enjoying a cup of hot cocoa? It is definitely something we look forward to . . . especially if we are hosting family or close friends. We have a delicious hot chocolate recipe we use that I would like to share. Offering an assortment of fun additives to your cocoa makes it even more memorable! You may also want to consider serving the hot chocolate outside. A Lifetime adjustable-height folding table makes set-up quick and easy whether you are setting it up inside or out. Most of us dont have a thermal Airpot dispenser kicking around the house, so a large thermos or a crock-pot set to low will make sure that your cocoa will still stay warm so you wont have to miss out on that last sled run down the hill.

Win a Lifetime Garden Caddy
This giveaway had ended.Spring is finally starting to show up and give us hope for a warmer world! It's funny how by late Fall I am tired of yard work, but by Spring, I am itching to get out there and pull some weeds. Like for many of you, it seems to me that the yard projects never end. This season, we at Lifetime are excited to announce another innovative product to help you get those yard chores done. The Lifetime Garden Caddy. Here is how my typical time working in the yard is spent: I go to my Lifetime Shed and pull out my Lifetime Wheel Barrow. Then I climb, fall, and otherwise search for the tools I am going to need for my project throughout my shed. To carry them all to the worksite I put them in my wheel barrow usually losing the shovel or other tool along the way. Finally ready to work, I empty out the tools from t...
