The Inconvenient Truth about Garage Storage image

Greetings to our extended family in home storage! Is your car an innie or an outie? According to the US Dept. of Energy: 25% of people with two-car garages do not park any cars inside, and 32% parked only one car inside.Does this sound familiar to you or someone you know? With temperature fluctuations, the garage is a poor storage option for many of our personal and household items. But the truth is, most of us need to store some things here like tools and outdoor gear. The trick is to maximize storage without stealing precious floor space from our vehicles.

Wardrobe Preppers – Who, What, Wear? image

We’ve all had difficult mornings. You know those mornings. You can’t find that one matching sock. The shirt you grabbed has a stain on it. Your keys aren’t “where you left them." And the downward spiral continues. One of the best ways to get your time back is with Monday through Friday wardrobe prepping.

With the holidays approaching and family and friends coming to visit, many of us suddenly find ourselves scrambling to find space and bedding for out-of-town guests. Having a spare room is convenient for times like these, but rather than having a room that’s really only used when you have overnight guests, you can hide a bed in any room and instantly double its usefulness.

They fold out from the wall (either lengthwise or widthwise) when needed, and when they’re not in use, they fold right back up to be easily disguised as stylish cabinets or closets. Gone ...

The Ideal Seasonal Garage, Tips and Tricks image

Your garage should be the hardest working space in your home, but our garages often become the last stop for hundreds of items, and many of those items come from “decluttering” projects elsewhere in the home.
