Storage / October 5, 2022
You can keep more than one car in your garage. The likelihood is that your garage will have plenty of room if you simply have one automobile. This extra room can be used to store a variety of equipment, chemicals, and other goods that you no longer need or aren’t using right now. Given that, it should come as no surprise that the garage is the part of your house that accumulates clutter the quickest. Fortunately, there are workarounds for this problem.
In this post, Handyman Connection of Mount Pleasant discusses the best ways to organize your garage.
You may occasionally be storing stuff you don’t need. Typically, this is motivated by sentimental value or the nagging notion that you might need it someday. To prevent your garage from becoming cluttered, get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year or more. Sort your belongings into categories such as what you need, what you can donate, and what you should get rid of. Bring everything outside, then divide it up into zones on your driveway. Alternately, you might decide on a corner and begin sorting the objects there into categories there.
It can be tempting to simply stack everything in a few boxes in your garage. However, this is inefficient, especially if you must search through every box every time you need something. Instead, invest in building some garage shelves for easier storage and access. You can always rely on the professionals at Handyman Connection of Mount Pleasant to build garage storage shelves.
Another way to organize your garage is by taking items of the same category and putting them in certain zones in your garage. Think of it as creating zones like the one you see in hardware stores; divide your garage into certain areas and items of the same category in one area, such as sports equipment in one corner and car maintenance tools in another.
Finally, keep up your organization by returning to your garage twice a year and fixing things up once again. You’d be surprised at the number of items that can build up in your garage over the course of six months, so be sure to check in and reorganize every now and then.
