The garage tends to be a place where we toss everything that doesn’t fit in the house. Overtime, it’s bound to get cluttered and messy. Reclaim your garage with these simple organizational tips.
- Determine the Garage Layout.
Before starting the task, determine where each item should live. For example, you may want to put your tools near the workbench. Remember, your garage is valuable real estate.
- Trash or Donate Items.
This is perhaps the most crucial step to organizing your garage. If you discover items that you don’t need, we recommend trashing or donating them. The fewer things you have, the easier it will be to organize.
- Categorize Your Items.
Organize your items by category. Categories may include recycling, camping gear, sport equipment, garden tools, season décor, and more.
- Install Shelves and Racks.
The cheapest and easiest way to add storage space in your garage is installing shelves for miscellaneous items and racks for shovels, rakes, and brooms.
- Ask for Help.
If organizing your garage seems too overwhelming, we suggest hiring an expert or a group of friends to help out. Not only will you finish it half the amount of time, but it’ll be easier and a bit more fun.
Organizing your garage is a difficult, yet rewarding task. If you follow the above tasks, you’ll have an easier time. Good luck!
