A Step-By-Step Guide to Organizing Your Garage

The garage isn’t just a place in your home to park your car; it can also be used for the extra storage space it offers. However, the things you no longer use can pile up at a rapid rate so it’s important that you organize your garage every now and then to avoid hazards and clutter. Thankfully, you can do just that, one step at a time.

In this post, Handyman Connection® of Matthews gives a step-by-step guide to organizing your garage.

Acquire Shelving

The first step to organizing your garage is to acquire shelving for the leftover space. The new shelves can be valuable in organizing and cleaning up your garage while keeping your things out of sight. Should you decide to have shelves installed in your garage, you can always hire Handyman Connection of Matthews to get the job done.

Get Rid of What Isn’t Needed

As you go through your things in the garage, you can organize what you find into three categories: keep, donate, or toss. This can make the whole decluttering process a lot easier on you. You’ll be getting rid of the things you no longer need while freeing up space in your garage for the more important items.

Store in Proper Areas

So, you’ve determined the things you’ll want to keep and those you have to get rid of. Put aside the latter for now and focus on what you want to keep. When you’re putting them back, it’s best that you start organizing in zones. For instance, you can put the car supplies in a dedicated area and the sports equipment in another part of the garage. Not only will this create uniformity similar to hardware store organization, but it will also help you locate your things more easily in the future.

Re-Organize Twice a Year

Once you’re done organizing your garage, keep in mind that you have to maintain this system as time goes by. One way to do this is by re-organizing twice a year. While it may sound silly, you’d be surprised by the number of items that can pile up in your garage in a span of six months. To avoid starting from scratch once again, it’s always best to keep an eye on the status of your garage.
