4 Steps to an Organized Garage

If you fight to maneuver your car around piles junk when pulling into the garage, the battle is already lost. It’s not uncommon to use the garage as an extra storage space. It’s also not uncommon for that furniture you’re storing “until I can find somewhere else” to become a permanent fixture in the garage. Spring cleaning season is officially here, and it’s time to reclaim your garage for the car.

Garage Organization

A few tips before you get started:

  • Set aside a Saturday. Better yet, set aside the entire weekend.
  • Grab your gear. This means work gloves, cleaning supplies, and bags or bins for junk items.
  • Assemble your team. Trust us you don’t want to tackle this project alone.

Steps to an Organized Garage

  2. Organize everything. No, it won’t be fun. But if you ignore that box you forgot to unpack when you moved in 1999, you may open it in 10 years’ time to find a box of canned goods that expired before the Y2K scare.
  3. Find a new home within your home. If you have a tool shed, your push mower needs to migrate there. If you don’t, you may need to rethink garage organization. Move as many major items as possible to keep your garage clean.
  4. Play the lava game. Remember that game your kids used to play where they pretended the floor was hot lava? That’s your new organizational strategy. Keep your garage neat by using vertical space. Hang lawn equipment from hooks, build shelves for paint and building materials, and even hang items from the ceiling if there’s space beside the garage door. Just remember: anything that touches the floor becomes a hot mess.
