There’s a pink pineapple in there somewhere…

What does a pink pineapple look like? Well, it sure doesn’t look like this. 

My garage - ugh! What a mess!
My garage - ugh! What a mess!

Welcome to my garage. I’m going to be charitable, and call this a mess. Really, it’s a haven for black widow spiders, dust, and junk of all descriptions. There are some good things in there, too, but they’re buried. At the front,  you’ll see the sub-woofer (?) for the speaker system we never successfully installed. On the right are some clothes meant to be sold on Poshmark. The pink school desk is from my daughter’s homeschooling days (she’s now 23 and engaged), and the item wrapped in the orange sheet… well, maybe I’ll model it for y’all someday!

Did I mention it's a three-car garage?

Did I mention it’s a three car garage? Not that we’ve ever managed to get more than one car in there. Here’s the other side. It’s not quite as bad as the first, except for my husband’s workbench at the back (the one with the styrofoam ice chest on it). The workbench is a mishmash of tools, screws, and who knows what else. And I don’t have any idea what’s in the file cabinet at the back.

It looks pretty bad...

And that’s because it IS pretty bad. But what you’re actually looking at it is the earliest stages of a pink pineapple. Over the next thirty days, I’m going to use the Find Your Pink Pineapple method to clean up, organize and TRANSFORM this mess into a usable space that functions for our family.

My pink pineapple is buried somewhere under all this junk

The obvious question at this point, is “If the pink pineapple method works so well, why is your garage a disaster?”

Excellent question. Here’s the answer: Getting started is sometimes the hardest part, and I’m human just like you. Until recently, I worked a 40+ hour/week job, and spent three hours a day commuting. I was overwhelmed, because although I had a GOAL of cleaning out the garage, I didn’t have a system to accomplish it and keep it clean and neat going forward.

My priorities were out of whack. I was chasing many pink pineapples all at once, and never really finding any of them.

Thirty days... and counting

Check this space for regular updates. I’m going to explain the highlights of the pink pineapple method as we go along, one step at a time.

In the meantime, please join our private Facebook group, and tell us about the pink pineapples you want to find! And, as always, please comment below with feedback. I LOVE feedback!

And if for any reason I don’t post for a while… please have someone check my garage. I may be trapped.
