Is your garage cluttered, messy or just completely unorganised? For many homeowners, having a garage can serve as a great storage place for many valuable belongings, vehicles, extra fridges and freezers. But they can end up becoming a dumping ground for many household items that don’t get used any more.
There is no better time to organise your garage than now. In this short article, we’ll discuss how to organise your garage like a pro, or at least organise it enough so your wife will stop shouting at you.
The first step to organising your garage is learning to stop hoarding items that you no longer need or use and banquishing them to the garage. By doing your best to stop hoarding all of your old items you can reduce the amount of clutter or mess that ends up in your garage.
Instead, why not sort through the contents of our garage and decide what’s worth keeping and what’s not worth keeping. Why not see if you can sell some of the stuff you don’t need or use anymore? Or better yet, donate it to charity.
Get Some Storage
Why not head to ikea or your local hardware store and pick up some shelving? Shelves can be a great way to save space giving you more room in your garage. You can allocate certain shelves to certain items, such as a shelving unit for gardening and any related tools and equipment or a shelving unit for any boxes of important documents or valuables.
Don’t Be Afraid To Move Things Around
Move things around and organise them by keeping all of the similar stuff together, such as a dedicated space for any tools, tool boxes, electrical equipment and other related items.
Buy some boxes that you can place old photos or documents you store in the garage into and stack them up in a corner somewhere so that they’re out of the way and you know where to find them.
Take Everything Out And Give It A Clean
Whilst your garage can look like organised chaos, a great way to organise your garage is taking everything out and cleaning the floor and walls to remove any dirt, dust or cobwebs. You can then neatly place everything back in, organising it so that you know where everything is at.
