Productive Garage is not a messy one
slows progress like a messy garage, or excessive storage.
I know I get
frustrated when I have a job to do and head to the garage only
to have to search for the tool that I know that I have, but cannot
find. I blame the kids, the wife, and, Yes, even the dog. When
the mistake is only mine. It is often easier (on my temper), and
usually faster to just go get another one. Now, how does this
help in your production, and gaining some of your day back.
I know this
sounds pretty simple, but get organized. I am
preaching to the choir when I say that. Let me put it this way.

and get all your tools and parts organized, you will find that
doing projects around your house will get done faster and simpler.

be thinking that why waste that time getting it all organized,
when I could be doing more projects around the house. You will
actually save your self time. If you spend that time now, when
it comes time to do a project you will get "up and running"
faster. Rather than spend that time looking for tools and such.
if you spend 30 - 45 minutes looking for parts and tools. You
will have that time saved after just 4-5 projects. Depending on
the amount of time it took you to get organized.
