Great Garage Tidy 2016

Okay, so it’s not gardening related, but it is what I did with my weekend and I thought it worth documenting for future reference.

We’ve been on holiday from work for the last 2 weeks. We had a brief break in Cornwall, but then spent 4 days (yes, 4 whole days) tidying out our garage.

We took 6 van loads to the tip:


Actually, I’m not quite clear what we threw out! There were lots of old toys and games  – our tip has a re-use shop attached which raises money for Age Concern (or maybe Help the Aged?) so they took all those to sell on. There were rather a lot of old boxes! You know when you buy a new kettle and keep the box for a few weeks just in case? Well we still had boxes from kettles long defunct. There was too much furniture in there, but it was all upcycled anyway – nothing we had bought new. In fact, one cupboard was in the kitchen when we moved in in 1998.

So here’s some before and after pics:


We did find a few really useful things- some Rootgrow that had been forgotten, a lovely set of watercolour pencils, and an Eden Project guide from our first visit in 2004.

So, just the shed to sort now:
