Is the clutter in your garage telling you it is time for a cleaning? One by one, outgrown bicycles, broken tools, defunct lawnmowers and other junk that looks so foreign you can’t even figure out what it is started piling up.
Now is the time to reclaim that space and put it to good use. Except for one thing. You open the garage door and the prospect of cleaning it out is so overwhelming that the only thing to do is close it and relax until you can figure out how to tackle the job.
Don’t Be Overwhelmed By Chaos
Do you remember this riddle? – How do you eat an elephant? The answer? One bite at a time.
How do you clean a messy garage? One bit at a time!
Unless you have some pressing reason that the place needs to be cleaned out in a hurry, you actually have the option of pacing yourself. As you survey the tangled confusion in front of you, break the area down into sections.
You can make as many or as few sections as you feel you can manage. Feeling ambitious? Make three sections, maybe even two. Feeling bewildered? Make six sections; left side, middle, and right side of the front half and the same for the back half.
Work on one section each day. Or maybe each weekend. As the old folks used to say, by the yard it’s hard; by the inch, it’s a cinch.
If you have an urgent need to get your garage cleaned out quickly, don’t panic. Contact Jiffy Junk. We can send out a team to take care of everything for you. No need to worry because our teams are fully licensed and insured.
Garage Cleaning: Trash, Treasure, Trade
As you go through your things, consider creating three piles.
Trash: One pile goes straight into the trash can. These are the things that are broken, unusable, and not worth fixing, and of course, actual trash!
Treasure: The treasure pile is where you put the things you really want to keep. That letter jacket from high school barely fits now, but if it brings back good memories and you can’t bear to part with it, it’s a treasure.
Trade: Those things that are still in working order or usable but you don’t need or want them, go into the trade pile. Whether these things wind up in a garage sale, your friend’s garage or at Goodwill, you are trading them for the peace of mind that goes along with reclaimed space and a job well done.
