Organization Tips For Your Garage!

Does anyone else have spring fever?!?!!

As a new homeowner I am itching to get my new garage organized and ready for spring! We purchased our home in October and since the move our garage has just become a catch all of summer outdoor furniture and storage. I have high hopes that this will be the last winter that I cannot fit my car inside of the garage!

Steps:

1. Declutter!
-Get rid of junk and clutter that you have been holding on to. Stop using your garage as limbo for
items that you have yet to make a decision on!

2. Plan!
-Make a plan for your garage! Using “zones” may be a good way to do so! Common zones are workshop, storage, sports equipment, tools, lawn and garden, and seasonal .

3. Organize!
-Organize the items that you are keeping. Once the decisions have been made for the items you are keeping, group them together. You can use the “zones” that you decided on previously!

4. Consider Storage Solutions That Will Work for You!
-More than other types of storage areas within your home, your garage does not typically have a lot of free floor space. Instead, the floor space must be kept clear so that you can park your cars. Think outside the box when considering options!

5. Label and Inventory!
-The last step (Finally!) in the Organize Your Garage Challenge is to label all the boxes or other containers of stuff you’ve decided to store in there. Make sure to label all four sides of each container, as well as the top, so you can tell from any direction what is in the box.

I LOVE using ceiling space for storage. The ceiling is there, unused, available square footage! Why not use it to the best of your ability. Although this suggestion requires precise preparation, it would offer more storage at an affordable price. And it stand the test of time!
