If your garage is cluttered and crammed, you’re not alone. A lot of people have trouble organizing their garage. It can be tough to know where to start. In this blog post, we will provide tips for getting rid of the clutter and organizing your garage so that it is functional and looks great!
Assess what you need to store and what can be thrown away or donated.
The first step is to take everything out of the garage and sort it into three piles: things to keep, things to donate or sell, and things to throw away. This will help you get a better idea of what you need to store and what can be removed. If you’re having trouble getting rid of anything, ask yourself if you’ve used it in the past year. If not, chances are you don’t need it.
Empty the garage and clean it thoroughly.
This is probably the most daunting task on the list, but it’s also the most important. You can’t really organize your garage properly until you get rid of all the clutter. So, set aside a day (or two) to empty out the entire space. sweep and mop the floor, wash any windows or shelves, and dust everything off. Once the garage is clean, you’ll be able to see what you’re working with and start planning your organization strategy.
Sort everything into categories- tools, sporting goods, holiday decorations, etc.
This will make it easier to know where everything goes and how to best utilize the space. Once you’ve sorted and purged, you can start planning where everything will go. Utilize wall space by hanging bikes, tools, and other larger items. This will free up floor space and make it easier to access those items when you need them. Install shelves, cabinets, or storage bins to store smaller items. This is a great way to keep things organized and off the floor. You can buy these items or build them yourself.
This will help you know where everything goes and make it easier to find what you need when you need it.
Put things back in the garage in an organized manner.
This is the most important step! You can have all the storage in the world, but if you don’t put things back in an organized manner, it will all be for nothing. Take your time and put everything back in a way that makes sense to you.
Don’t forget to maintain your new organizational system!
Set aside some time each week or month to ensure that everything is staying in its place. This will help you keep your garage organized and looking great!
