With summer well on its way, now is an ideal time to declutter and reorganize the garage. Spring has long been representative of a fresh beginning, so it makes total and complete sense as to the reason spring cleaning is so popular around this time. A garage can be a very convenient storage space, particularly if you are short on space within the home. However, at times, it can turn out to be so easily over-cluttered to the point where you are struggling really hard to find anything.
If you would like to dig out the gardening equipment or bikes that have long been stashed in the garage for safekeeping, it may seem like an intimidating task in the beginning. However, you will be so grateful once your decluttering mission is finished and have a garage space to be proud of!
Beginning with a plan in mind is the most promising approach forward, not just will you be attentive, but the plan is also supposed to make the process more practicable. In this guide, we have outlined some of the proven tips that are sure to help you deal with the garage once and for all.
- To begin with, get rid of the biggest things initially
This consists of items such as a lawnmower, a bike, a car, or any other large equipment taking up a lot of space. By getting rid of everything at first, you can see how much space you are working with. If you have an adequate amount of space, and tolerance, it is a good idea to take away everything and put each item on the driveway or in the garden. Like this, you can have a dedicated spot for different items, in which you can gradually search through everything you have, and work around this.
- Throw away the things that are not in use
Once you have started getting rid of things from the garage, begin asking yourself whether you need to keep everything. Mull over the last time you brought something into play and whether you will bring it into play again. People usually keep things that they do not at all make use of. This is just for the reason that they do not want to part with them however this turns out to be counterproductive, so be merciless. Donate the things in good condition where possible and throw away the items that are not in use or broken.
- Clean the space
When everything is out of the garage and you have a vacant space, it is an ideal time to give it a thorough clean. Without any doubt, you need not clean the garage to make it look spotless if it is being utilized just as a storage space. However, a quick sweep and dust will not go a miss. Giving it a clean signifies a fresh beginning and provides you with a clean space to work with.
- Split the entire space into sections
By sorting everything, it makes the task of putting the entire stuff back a lot more manageable. In addition, if you tag every item and stick to a storage system, you will find everything so much faster and simpler, averting a mess forming. When every item has a dedicated space, it turns out to be a lot simpler to stick to the system.
- Get practical storage solutions
The final step is to make sure that you have some practical storage and put everything back. Tall shelving works wonders for garages and it offers a massive amount of storage without taking up too much floor space. Baskets and boxes can be stored on the shelves, putting items you make less use of at the top. Hanging racks are simply amazing for gardening equipment and bikes, again freeing up that all important floor space. The mess will turn out to be a thing of the past when storage is the best.
