Winter Storm Electra helped me clean out my garage
Tomorrow is always the best day to clean your garage. If you think you will do it tomorrow, then you can relax today and not have to worry about where to put your boxes, and you can avoid deciding what to keep and what to get rid of.
My garage had boxes in it all summer. I kept meaning to sort though the boxes , but I wasn’t in any hurry, we didn’t have to park our cars in the garage because it was nice outside, and I could always sort tomorrow.
Saturday morning, December 14th, I woke up at 5:00 a.m. and realized.
I also realized Winter Storm Electra was coming. There was a 100% chance she would deliver 2-4 inches of snow and ice, and I wanted to park our vehicles in the garage.
(Or tomorrow was yesterday, because that’s when I cleaned my garage. And now today is yesterday’s tomorrow.)
I never put off till tomorrow what I can possibly do – the day after.

Oscar Wilde would not put off cleaning out his garage, if cars had been invented yet, if there was a snow storm coming.
Thank you Winter Storm Electra. I cleaned my garage because of you. Boxes were taken to the thrift store, and bicycle hooks were bought to hang bikes. (We still have to hang the bikes. Maybe I will hang them tomorrow.)
What helps you stop procrastinating? Please tell me in the comments, I need help finding a reason to clean out my basement. A winter storm doesn’t make a difference downstairs.
“Holy Mackerel Pamela, thank you so much for getting our cars in the garage. Our cars would be one sheet of ice if they weren’t in the garage,” said Nick, my husband, a few minutes ago.
