Scott’s House Call: The Jennings Family

The Jennings family is always on the go – literally. With 3 kids who play a combined total of 13 sports, their life is about as close to chaos as it gets! Parents, Brian and Marnie, get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of stuff, and they need Scott’s help to organize their life, starting with the garage (aka locker room).


Scott surprised the Jennings family with a complete garage makeover. Want the same results? Check out Scott’s simple guide for organizing your garage – and your life!

Tips for Setting Up a Workshop – Whether it’s a garage or a dedicated workshop, there are certain things you should think about when organizing this type of space.

Gladiator Garage Works modular system – For Marnie and Brian, a modular system was the best choice. With three kids doing so many activities there’s no telling how and when their needs will change. This modular system allows for maximum flexibility – everything can be moved without the need for drilling or screwing.

CIBC Alerts – Even the most organized person can lose track every now and then. Setting up alerts that can be sent to your phone is a great way to ensure you never miss a payment while you’re racing around from Point A to Point B (or Point C, or D…).

CIBC Mobile App – When you’re on the go all the time like Brian and Marnie are, instant access to your financial information can be a lifesaver.

Scott’s Last Word…

“Brian and Marnie’s situation is similar to what so many families go through. They’re always on the go, and no matter how hard they try there never seems to be enough time to get ahead of things. And when parents have trouble staying organized, the kids generally follow suit. It’s a tough cycle to break. We were able to help them with the garage thanks to Gladiator and Bouclair, and now it’s up to them to translate what happened here into other aspects of their lives. Every parent knows how tricky it can be, but I’ve got a feeling that after seeing the results here, Brian and Marnie are motivated to make it happen.”
