clear out your garage

Yes, it is officially Fall…which means the weather is starting to get cooler and pretty soon…we will get frost and snow. If you are one of those people with a 3 stall garage and no room for your car, it’s time to take action and clear your cluttered garage once and for all!

Start by looking at what you currently have in your garage. Get rid of all trash, recycling, and other items that need to be disposed of. Then take anything that should not be in the garage and put it in it’s proper home.

Then, set up activity zones. For example, group garden tools in one spot, sporting goods in another, and tools in their own area.

Also, try using the walls (vertical space) and the ceiling (over head storage) will help you make better use of the space you do have within your garage. Use various storage solutions such as peg boards, containers (see-through and labels make it easy), and open crates which allow for easy access and are easy to clean. Do not use cardboard boxes because of water damage, mold and bugs.

It might take a little hard work now, but it will be worth it when you don’t need to spend 15 minutes scrapping off your car every morning.
