Is Your Garage an Unsightly Mess? Get It Organized Quickly

Not everyone owns a garage, but many people do. You probably have one car or even two, but if you're like a lot of people, your garage is full of other things. If you want to ensure you can get the car inside and that your garage isn't a deathtrap, you need to organize. Organizing your garage can seem like a daunting task. It might be extremely untidy, and you may even be scared to start moving things in case of an avalanche! If you're not sure where to start, try reading this guide to help you sort it all out. You'll soon have everything looking much neater.


Empty the Garage First

Looking at your overflowing garage can be a tough thing to do. If you avoid it at all costs, it's time to start setting it right. The first thing you can do is take everything out of the garage. It's hard to get anything organized if there's no space in which to do it. Once you've got everything laid out, you can start to declutter. It's unlikely that you need to keep everything in your garage. What do you have that you can or should store elsewhere? What's broken or no longer useful for you that you can get rid of? Decide what you're going to do with everything that's not staying.

Assess Your Possessions

Now that you know what you need to store, have a look at what you have. It will help you to decide what sort of storage you need to use. You'll get a better idea of what to put where and how you can best use the space you have available. For example, do you have gardening equipment or tools for shoveling snow? Perhaps you have bicycles and other sports equipment, or maybe you use your garage as a woodworking workshop. All of these items can be stored in different ways, so it's important to consider them.


Get the Right Storage

Now you know what you need to store, you should work out the best way to do it. It's likely that you have a range of different items to organize. Many people find multi-use garage storage systems very useful. They can give you space to efficiently organize anything from tools to sports equipment. It's also easy to find a range of different storage types that suit you. You might like using shelves, racks, boxes, and other items. You can get creative to store everything how you see fit.

Use All Available Space

When you organize your garage, make sure you use all the space you have. Don't start spreading things out on the floor when you have space on the walls. You can even make use of the ceiling to hang things from it. It can be particularly useful to use the walls and roof to hang up bulky sports equipment, whether it's bicycles or a canoe.

Set aside a day or two to organize your garage and it could be done in no time. You'll finally be able to look at it without cringing.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
