IT’S TIME FOR YOUR SPRING CLEANING: Easy Steps to OrganizeYour Garage

By JENYA TUCKER Owner of Minimize and Organize LLC

Garage decluttering and organizing can feel like a daunting task,
but with a strategic approach, it can transform your garage into a
functional and tidy space.

The first step in this process is to declutter. This means taking
everything out of the garage and sorting it into categories such as
keep, donate, sell, and trash. Be ruthless in this process; if you haven’t used an item in the past year or you are no longer into this sport, activity, etc. and it doesn’t have sentimental value, consider letting it go. This step not only frees up space but also gives you a clear inventory of what needs to be organized.

Once the decluttering phase is complete, the next step is to plan your organizing strategy. This involves considering how you use your garage and what items need to be accessible. For items that are used frequently, such as gardening tools or sports equipment, you’ll want to store them in easily accessible locations. Shelving units, pegboards, and hooks can be incredibly useful for keeping these items organized and of the loor. For seasonal or rarely used items, consider using overhead storage or cabinets. Labeling shelves and bins can also be a game-changer, making it easier to find things when you need them.

Finally, maintaining your newly organized garage is crucial for ensuring it stays decluttered and functional. Make it a habit to put things back in their designated spots after use and periodically reassess what’s stored in your garage, getting rid of items that no longer serve you. Implementing a system of regular mini-declutters, such as once every season, can help keep your garage in top shape.
Remember, a well-organized garage not only saves you time and stress but can also be a source of pride and satisfaction.
You can always save your time by hiring a professional team of organizers and spending this valuable time with your family while the team is doing their job.
