blitz-It Friday # 11 the garage update

Grab My Blog Button!

Hey! It’s time to blitz-it again. For those of you who are just blitzing for the first time, here are some great starting points.

Basically, blitzing is forcing ourselves to focus for a set period of time on hands-on tasks.

Originally, I wrote about the one hour blitz and staying focused.

Also, blitzing with kids is a helpful place to start.


Well, last week, I started the garage.  I knew that it would take more than one blitz to get this place up to speed.  

The blue mats were moved, and grain storage was moved under the shelf.

So, this is basically what the garage looked like a week ago (after the blitz)

Since then, I did three one hour blitzes and one family blitz to get it to the point it is now.  Can you say: exhausting??? No wonder I slept in the next day!!  

Basic things accomplished during the sessions:

1) all grey storage boxes sorted through and cleaned out.

2) 4 boxes were completely emptied and contents in the donation pile

3) Kids and hubby hung a cupboard and all car supplies were placed in cupboard and car-maintenance area.  (Yes, I allow him to leave things on the counter..in the garage)

4) Bikes organized

5) old countertops and miscellaneous junk placed in big van to be dropped off.  

6) swept out garage

7) and finally Jamie was thrilled to:

PUT the CAR in the GARAGE!!  (First time in a long time!)  TA DA!!  

The real question is: how long will it stay neat???  

So, I hope you have enjoyed your weekly blitzing! I love it when you guys tell me what you’ve been doing!
