Garages may have been intended as a place in which to store a vehicle, but many people no longer use them for this purpose. In fact, organizing professionals estimate that only 30 percent of people are actually able to store their cars inside of the garage. Instead, a large number of families use the space in their garage to store other belongings, such as seasonal decorations, keepsakes and other such items. If your garage is cluttered and disorganized, follow these steps to reclaim the space.
1. Set aside some time.
2. Get some help.
3. Go through everything.
4. Organize the keep pile.
5. Put everything away.
After you have organized all of the items you plan to keep, put them away neatly in plastic bins or boxes. Use a garage organization system to keep everything off the floor and out of the way. Depending on your needs and budget, you may purchase a standard, pre-made garage organization system, or you may design your own system complete with custom garage cabinets.
6. Clean the area.
Cleaning out the garage is a lot of work, but your feeling of accomplishment will be well worth the effort. By following these tips, you can get the job done as efficiently as possible. Contact us for more garage organization tips!
