The Bagster Bag Bloggers Challenge Part 2 (and a giveaway)~

This is a sponsored post

In my first post about the Bagster Bag Bloggers Challenge, I told you all that we had decided to use our Bagstser Bag to help us clean out our garage. 


When we moved to this house, we downsized a bit from our previous home, and a lot of our stuff ended up in storage in the garage.  It was about time for us to get rid of some un-needed stuff and to organize the stuff we wanted to keep just a little bit better.

You can see a some of what we were up against in this lovely photo (I can't believe I'm posting this. Argh.)


This is where the Bagster Bag got put to some good use.

Here I am setting it up. (It's easy enough that one person can do it!)


And here is the hubby breaking apart some old palettes. (gasp!) Don't worry.  They weren't worth salvaging.


Here is our loaded-up Bagster Bag.  Yep! We really had a lot of stuff to get rid of.


And here is the same wall after we were done cleaning.



The other side of the garage is a story for another day.  But hey, it's a start.  Right?

Because they are trying to spread the word about this great service, the good folks at Waste Management are offering a $100 gift card to one lucky reader of The Shabby Nest.

why haven't I heard of this bag before?!? As soon as I saw your post I said "I need that"! I was looking at our garage the other day and knew it needed to be cleaned soon so we could park our cars in there during the winter. Well this bag would certainly help!

You are brave to put your garage out there for the world to see. Very nice transformation. Mine is really bad...filled with old furniture and paint cans.

Looks great...we just downsized and moved also. We seem to have stuff everywhere, closets, drawers and the storage unit. This would help. Thank you for sharing.

Where have you been all my life Bagster Bags?!?!? What a great idea for those of us who love to organize our garages or break our backs getting rid of yard work debris...I hope I win so I can start this fabulous trend with my family and friends!!!

Becky said...

I could use a couple of these. I'm determined to declutter and minimalize by the next time we move. Hopefully that's not for a couple more years, but I want to make myself think it could happen any day.

That would be great for a bathroom remodel. Which is not on the "soon" list, but maybe I could just hold on to it! Nice job on the garage!

Why do garages get so messy? Mine needs an overhaul with a bagster bag! Thanks for the chance to win one!

Heidi@TheCraftMonkey said...

Doesn't it feel great to have it all cleaned out though? We just moved, and so a huge purge was part of my packing process, and I'm still purging as I unpack. Apparently, I have A LOT of stuff! haha

That is a brilliant idea.
We all have stuff to get rid of!

I could very much use this to clean out our garage. It flooded and got some things very, very nasty.

This gives me hope that there is something out there that will help us to clean out my father-in-laws garage as planned this fall (I know, we are running out of time).
