Garage Overhaul

The day we moved into our house, the garage door opener broke.  We soon forgot about the convenience of having a garage to park the cars in, and it became a spot for garbage, storage, kids messes, old-unused items, and even more garbage.  Last weekend, we decided to do something about it.  Here is a before picture, which doesn't look too bad, but it was  a disaster.
The Husband and I worked hard and got everything organized and cleaned up, and we were just left with one big oversized garbage pile.

We also set to work on replacing the garage door opener, and The  Husband worked hard (with a bit of my help) to get that done.

We borrowed a friend's truck and loaded it to the max with our garbage, then took it to the dump.
Well look at that.  A clean garage!  It's so nice and organized!

Both of our vehicles fit inside, and the garage door opener works now.  Perfect timing too, because a few days later we got a big snowstorm!!
