Anyone that has a garage probably knows the importance of organization. This is especially true if you need to park your car in your garage. Everything should have a place and everything needs to be in that place. This will make it a lot easier to use your garage for what it was intended for.
Here are a few things that you can try in order to help you get your garage organized.
1.) Start by taking the time to look at what you have in your garage. This will give you an idea of what needs to be stored where. Everything should have a place and you can determine where that is.
2.) For a rule of thumb, if you had not used an item in the garage for 2 years, you should get rid of it. This will help you keep your clutter down. Donate the items to your local Good Well or charity.
3.) Take seasonal things and place them in areas that are out of the way when it is not the season to be using them. You can create container designated for each season and marked with what season the container hold. For example if you have an Halloween container with all your Halloween decorations and your fall decoration in.
4.) Place smaller items in bins or cabinets so that they will not be lost or misplaced. For example, you can keep all of your small gardening tools in a labeled box or a bin so you will always know where they are.
5.) Keep items that are not used all of the time in locations that are out of the way.
Hopefully, once you have taken the time to really look at your belongings you will be able to find the appropriate places for each of these things. This means that you will be able to clean things up a little bit and use your garage effectively.
