What’s the current state of your garage? Is it a cluttered space you try to avoid as much as possible? 

It’s time for a change!

The good news is that you don’t have to organize it all at once! 15 minutes here and 30 minutes there can make all the difference.

Having an organized garage can be a total game-changer - you’ll be able to find what you need when you need it (without tripping or falling) and you’ll have room for other fun activities such as DIY projects and indoor games.

Here’s a simple guide to help transform your garage into a space you actually enjoy being in!

1. Purge

Before you head to the store to find some cool storage pieces, go through all your items and purge out everything you don't need. You can do it in sections if you don’t have a full day. 

If you haven’t used something in over a year it’s probably time to let it go.

As you declutter, group similar items to make arranging easier.

2. Get rid of the junk

After decluttering, you’re bound to leave a trail of unwanted items. You can sell valuable items online or donate them to local charities.

Broken appliances, such as computers, printers, and refrigerators should be recycled to prevent environmental pollution. 

If you need a hand, hire a junk removal company who’ll handle all your trash for you. 

3. Find storage solutions

Measure your storage area and use these measurements to get shelving and storage bins. Install a wall rack and pegboard for your tools and an overhead rack if you need extra storage. The goal is to keep things off the garage floor. 

4. Organize

Now that you have your storage pieces up, it’s time to find a convenient arrangement. Label your storage bins for easy access and place rarely used items on the farthest shelves.

Items you use often should be placed in easy-to-reach spots.

5. Stay diligent

Maintenance is key. The more diligent you are about putting things back in their place, the less frequently you’ll need to declutter and reorganize the space.
