Spring is here and spring cleaning is a big deal at my house. As the hockey gear gets washed (finally) and put into storage, the baseball and soccer equipment as well as the fishing gear comes back to the garage. The great sports migration as we like to call it is a perfect time to do a deep cleaning of the garage. We re-organize tools, sweep, and clean the entire area. For this to be successful, we need to be organized. I have learned that with a house of 6, it doesn’t take very long for piles to start building.
Now that you are done judging me for how messy I am, I’ll keep going on this post.
One way I like to organize is not only by category, but by who’s stuff it is. I can tackle a big project by breaking it into smaller pieces pretty easily. This year, I got the highly rated Gladiator GarageWorks Premier Series Modular GearBox. This will be the home of many of my tools you see above. I’m going from a rat’s nest of cords and equipment to something that will make my garage look organized. If you are familiar with our blog, you know that we do a lot of projects. I’ve always been handy and early on I found out that it is much cheaper to learn how to do a project and buy the equipment than it is to hire a contractor to do it. Needless to say that after a couple of decades of homeownership, I have done a lot of projects and have accumulated a lot of tools.
If you are like me, you know that these tools, while they take up some space and require organization, empower you to take care of your home and keep it in great shape. These tools are my “Spring Keeping” items. I am utilizing the highly rated GearBox, but Gladiator has a number of other other products that may fit your needs at http://www.gladiatorgarageworks.com if you have other needs.
The GearBox was delivered right to my house and two friendly delivery guys helped me haul it into my garage.
After unpacking it, there was a small amount of work to put it together, but it was very easy.
After a short 15 minutes of bolting various pieces together, I had a mobile work bench that looked great in my garage.
After rolling it into place, I locked the wheels and started organizing my power tools. They are organized, protected by a sturdy gear, and will be easy to find and keep neatly in the future.
That is one victory in our spring cleaning war. I’ll be looking at more of the Galadiator GarageWorks equipment for more spring cleaning next week.
