This week you can link up a regular blitz and/or a big project edition. Because we had company, I was not able to work on my big project, but I did get a one hour blitz in.

The garage is basically orderly, but it only takes a short time for the clutter to start creeping in as pictured:

The garage ends up being the dumping ground for the items that I need to get rid of or need to find a new home for.

So, I set the timer for an hour, and for the first 12 minutes I just moved things into piles.

1. Trash

2. Donation

3. Gardening

4. recycling

5. in house

6. pitchforks and rakes

7. Car maintenance

After a while, I asked the kids to come out and help haul things.

and sweep! (Thanks, crew!) With their help, it took less than an hour. I’m spoiled, I know!

These were not part of the blitz, but I wanted to show you a cupboard that I found on the side of the road (last year?) and made it into a car supply area.

Also, this is not completely up to speed, but all like items are together. I could not give away this desk on freecycle, so I decided to keep it and use it for a potting shed/area.

Also, another great find from a garage sale (2 weeks ago). This is all cedar 3/4″ paneling/ boards. (for a very good price) Not sure what the project is exactly, but I know a certain young lady is hoping for a hope chest….


Are you working on your big projects? Sorry I couldn’t get mine done this week. I’ll have to do double next week!


New to blitzing? Here are some links to get you started:

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

Read about the: one hour blitz and staying focused.

Getting started with posting for blitz-it Friday.

Also, blitzing with kids is a blast if you are an airchair general.
