State Farm Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winners are Heather H., shawn, and clarissa. Congrats!

What does your garage look like? Mine is so cluttered that I am way to embarrassed to even take a picture to show you! Yes, it's that bad. We park the van in one half and the other, well, it looks like a tornado may have hit it. We have stacks upon stacks of miscellaneous stuff. I even think we have a mattress out there! If you are in Chicago (like I am), make sure you check out the Chicago Auto Show from February 11 – February 20, 2011, and explore the State Farm Garage! This will inspire car owners everywhere to transform their ordinary, cluttered garage into something that represents who they are and can call their own. At the State Farm Garage, you will also have the opportunity to enter the Garage Makeover Sweepstakes for a chance to win a brand new garage valued at $35,000. (Anybody not need that? Anyone?)  The garage will have fun activities for parents and kids – can you say games and prizes?

Since I don't have $35,000 to give away to my readers, I've arranged the next best thing:

· (1) $200 gas card

· (1) $300 Lowe’s gift card

· (1) Eco Car Care Kit (valued at $49.99)

Since I like to spread the wealth around, I will pick 3 (aff) winners. (Each winner will win one of these items:  for example, one winner gets the Lowe's card; another winner the gas card; and so on and so forth.). Here's what you need to do:

  1. I would really love to organize it and have cabinets and baskets for my kids toys that have taken the garage over.

    Thanks so much.


  2. I would like to arrange my garage to get more use out of the space that is in there, put up racks and shelving, and space savers

  3. I don't have a garage so maybe I would want to have one? But the next time I do have a garage I will want lots of shelving and storage!

  4. Oh goodness, what DON'T I need to change about my garage? I need to take a picture and show you some time.. the north east corner of the garage has grown into this abysmal black hole. we kept piling things one on top of the other and now its just a mass of who knows what from floor to ceiling and i'm not exaggerating. it's chaotic, I once tried to organize it and get it under control, but without the help of some lazy men in my house i didnt get far as a lot of the things got way too heavy to lift, so I guess the first thing, is to figure out how to get that part of the garage under control and organized!

    My garage needs a major overhaul, thanks for the heads up on the sweepstakes, going to enter and wish on my luckystars hehe.

  5. My garage looks like junk yard. I need cabinets to put my gardening sprays, bug strays etc in so I don't have to worry about my 4 cats getting into or a neighbors dog or cat to explore. Also need a tool box for tools that belonged to my son, mechanics, and just all over reorganization. I am retired and need help to accomplishe a clean up.

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter giveaway.

  6. My garage needs a total makeover…floors need work since we have a flooding issue…there are hardly any storage shelves so things just get piled in the corners. I would love to add some shelves in there and get the flooding situation resolved

  7. we need more storage that goes up to use the height of the garage better for off-season items instead of everything pretty much being at floor level because it is very crowded in there. between 2 minivans, shelves of toys etc, a lawn tractor, sleds, ride-ons, bikes, etc sometimes it's hard to get around without bumping into something.

  8. Right now my husband just has a little shed that he is housing all his tools in and until I get enough money to buy a garage, I would love to get him some organizing shelves and pegboards and things like that to help make a small space seem bigger.

  9. Love this Giveaway! Shared with my friends via Facebook and about to tweet as well.

    It would be awesome to get my garage organized so I could park in there! My truck has been broken into twice already! Chronic pain from broken back and neck makes it impossible to do alone!

    Fingers crossed!

  10. oh dear – everything – so overcrowded – needs organization in a huge way!

  11. What I would like to change is my garage is….just the fact of actually having one! I would feel so blessed not to have to dig my car out from the mounds of snow we've gotten.

  12. I would like to make our garage usable again. Since the fire, that pretty much means taking the entire structure down and rebuilding, We had plans to do that this Spring before we ran out of money.

  13. I know what my husband would like to change – he'd like to actually be able to park in it again! We can get one car in there now, but the other side is a complete and total mess. I'd love to get it cleaned out and organized!

  14. There's a building in our backyard that we've been wanting to convert into a garage. Our first step would be installing a garage door and replacing a side window.

  15. What would I change about my garage? Hmmm…. Perhaps the fact that it ISN'T A GARAGE! It's a carport. It has no walls save for the one that keeps you from going out the other side.

  16. If I could change one thing, I would make it bigger. Right now it is not larger enough for all our stuff and a vehicle.

  17. It needs to be organized big time, too much junk cluttering up all the space, we should be able to put 2 cars in there no problem but instead we have left over junk from 2 prior garage sales that I keep thinking I might do again and unload the rest of the junk, but its been 2 years since the last one and I doubt if I will have another one anytime soon, so my problem is lack of useable space/or organization that would allow us to put the cars in especially the winter time

    thanks for the great giveaway

  18. My garage is super messy and cluttered. I would like more storage space and cabinets!
