Sometimes it’s easier just to put things that are in your way out of sight out and out of mind until you need them. Most of the time, the garage or basement is always the first choice for these objects. When spring rolls around we open our garages to a winter’s worth of clutter. Here are some simple tips to get your garage in top shape.
Like all other big projects, make sure you allow yourself enough time to see your garage organization through to completion. Whether it takes you an entire day or only a few hours, budgeting out time allows you to get on a roll and not waste time backtracking.
Make a list of what you need for the project. Items such as storage totes, trash bags, boxes for donation, and cleaning supplies are a few we recommend having handy. Having all of these items on hand before starting saves you from breaking your momentum mid-clean.
We recommend splitting the garage into imaginary boxes of 4. When cleaning one part, make sure it’s completely clean, wiped down, and swept before moving onto the next section. This ensures no section of your garage gets overlooked or missed!
Once you have all of your tools in one place, analyze how much there is of each item. Many tools can be hung up, which will give your garage more floor space for other items. Not only does hanging up tools clear some space, it also allows you to put dangerous tools out of reach of small children. Tools should never be hung too high that they could fall onto someone’s head. Cabinets, overhead storage, and pegboards are great options for getting important tools off the ground.
We are all guilty of having a designated “save for later” space in our home, but with these few tips, you can have your garage ready for your family’s spring needs.
