Garage organization at Picket Fence

Getting the garage cleaned up before the snow and nasty weather is always a chore. Either it is too cold and windy to work outside, or it is so nice- who wants to stay in the garage? Picket Fence has an array of items that will make it more fun to get everything off the floor in record time. My favorite is the Bin Warehouse. It has so many compartments that I can literally throw things in bins, label, and stuff them on these racks. Fast, off the floor- and best of all- my garage now has room for essentials- like my car!

The beauty of the web is that is can always be up to date. Want the latest news that just broke? Look on the web! Want the newest products even before you get our catalog? Look on the web! We even have a special link that brings you right to the latest and greatest. One of my favorite New Arrivals is the Cable Capture. This dome shaped hood neatly contains tangles of cords & cables. My computer set up (including 2 printers) is now completely organized. This is just one of over 50 of our newest web site additions. Check them out!


Until next time… Ann 🙂

no cords – lots of bling

I am amazed at the number of products that are new to the market and are solar powered. Although few houses have taken the solar route, marketing has created wonderful home solutions using solar. For example, the newest innovation, solar holiday string lights. I am so tempted to light up my backyard, my hot tub area, etc, but who wants to set up cords, worry about the plug getting wet, etc. These lights just work. I have some solar pumpkins too, but alas, that holiday is gone. Try these for Christmas.

On The Run

There are times when you just don’t want to carry a purse or bulky wallet – quick trips to the grocery store, going for a walk/run, etc. The Wrist Wallet makes it easy to carry your credit cards, cash and I.D. No pocket needed!

P.S. Not to brag, but I am the hand model in this shot. George Costanza watch out!

Until next time…Ann 🙂

My daughter is very environmentally responsible. In addition, she hates bugs, mosquitoes, etc. I found this incredible product, Bugs R Done, that is exclusive to Picket Fence. Spray it indoors, spray it outdoors, it is 100% organic and only disturbs bugs. Go organic!

wiper blades and rainstorms

Truthfully, I don’t think too much about my wiper blades until it is pouring out and I can’t see. Picket Fence Catalog to the rescue! They have an item, Wiper Blade Conditioner, that I have not been able to find anywhere else- even on the web. It not only cleans the blades, but snow and ice will not stick to the blades after treatment. Like getting an oil change, I really need to do this maintenance on a regular basis.

Watch Your Back When Raking Leaves

Raking leaves in the fall to some may seem like a chore and if you are not careful could cause serious harm to your shoulder, back or even your wrists.  Use a rake that feels comfortable and consider your height and strength.  Also switch your arm and leg motions often.   What I do to really avoid back injury is I use the Bos-Sheet. If you live in areas where it isn’t necessary to bag your leaves this is a real time saving and back saver.  Check it out…your “back” will thank you!

Happy Autum,
