Did you know that National Clean Out Your Garage Day is celebrated on September 8? Even though that date has come and gone, there's still time to clean up your garage before winter hits -- don't wait until the Spring Cleaning urge hits! We do a big garage clean-out every 1-2 years, regardless of the season. It's amazing how much JUNK our family of 5 can accumulate in just 2 years! Whenever it gets too difficult to park Alfie's motorcycle, we know it's time to clean out. It's not just a clean-freak issue, it's a safety issue. Check out some statistics from a recent home safety survey conducted by The Lehigh Group, manufacturer of Crawford branded garage organization products:
* 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
