Fabulous Won – National Clean Out Your Garage Week! {GIVEAWAY!}

National Clean Out Your Garage Week! {GIVEAWAY!}

National Clean Out Your Garage Week! {GIVEAWAY!}

This past week (September 8th) was National Clean Out Your Garage Week and at our house, we took full advantage of the holiday. Our garage is usually pretty cluttered between bikes, wagons, and tools. Of course we also have to fit our cars in there, too! We really needed to do some organizing though, because we were always tripping over a cord or broom when we’re in the garage.

This year, Ace Hardware and Quickie are joining The Lehigh Group, manufacturer of Crawford branded garage organization products, making the 2012 program the largest campaign to date. The observance is not just about cleaning out your garage, its also to help educate Americans on garage safety as well.

 Here’s a few stats:

  • Nearly four in 10 (39 percent) have tripped over an item in their garage.
  • More than a quarter (27 percent) have hit an object when opening a vehicle door.
  • 22 percent have accidentally hit something when parking.

We’ve definitely contributed to those stats in our household. So when we were sent a  Garage Organization Kit (worth $83.16) to try out, we were ecstatic. My husband is always trying to organize our garage, but he gets frustrated with everything that needs to be in there. With this kit, he was able to hang our cleaning tools up and out of the way. This was a huge improvement for us, no more kids pulling the large brooms down and hitting our cars with it.

We’re giving away one of the same Garage Organization kits we received!

Garage Organization Kit filled with the following items:(ARV $83.16)

Crawford 16” Adjustable Storage Organizer: Designed for use anywhere in your home, garage, workshop, tool shed or basement, this system is great for hanging brooms, rakes and other lawn supplies.

Crawford Sliding Spring Grip Organizer: Grips slide into position anywhere along the bar for maximum use. Guaranteed to never lose tension, the grips can hold hardware, garden tools, shovels and more.

Quickie 2-in-1 Squeegee Pushbroom: This 2-in-1 pushbroom is designed for both indoor and outdoor use. Effortlessly sweep away dirt and debris or use the built-in professional-grade squeegee to push away excess water.

ACE Multi-surface Pushbroom: This durable pushbroom is perfect for sweeping heavy debris, including caked-on dirt, gravel and construction materials.

 Lysol Sponges:Super absorbent and safe on most surfaces, these sponges can help tackle any tough mess.
