While most people will have a “junk drawer” in the kitchen, a lot of people have a… well…”junk garage.” Instead of using our garages for storage, we have resorted to putting every item we may, some day, possibly, if the chance arises, use in there. But let’s be honest with ourselves…you’re not going to use those hair curlers you bought from the “As Seen on TV” aisle, so let’s get to work.
Firstly, set aside enough time to properly get this space organized! Undoubtedly, you will come across some fun, memory provoking things along the way as well as some moldy questionables so it is important that you allow yourself plenty of time to respond to both scenarios. We suggest taking two days in a row. Don’t forget to check the weather first! You will definitely need to be pulling items out of the garage, so you want to make sure they and you are not getting rained or snowed on.
Categorize the items and have a plan of action. Are you hoping to purge or sell a number of items or just reorganize as a whole? Either way, when separating the items, make sure to clearly label the boxes you are putting them into! We recommend putting the label on the front so you are able to clearly see without having to pull everything down to check it out.
When putting items back into garage think of them in terms of “valuable real estate” or not. You want to have easy access to things you use more frequently, but for those you don’t they can be put on the higher shelves. At the end of the day, you just want to place things in such a way that your life can be made a little easier.
