Do you park your car in the driveway because your garage has become a glorified storage unit? Your vehicle is a substantial investment; protecting it from the elements is a wise choice. Whether you’re ready to give your car a new home indoors or you just need to reclaim valuable space, a clean garage can make a very real difference in your quality of life.
A Place for Everything, and Everything in Its Place
The first step to reclaiming your garage is to sort through everything it’s currently housing. If the only time a particular item is touched is when you shift it aside to get to something else, it pays to consider donation or disposal.
Most garages are home to not only a surfeit of unused items, but also a number of things that should belong in other areas of the home. If your out-of-season clothes and holiday decorations are taking up space in your garage, you don’t have room to park your car or work on projects. Small, affordable outdoor storage buildings can be a perfect solution for decorations and lawn work implements.
If there’s no other place to store infrequently used things, simply finding a better method of organizing them can make all the difference. Invest in inexpensive, stackable storage totes to take advantage of vertical space. Install shelving along walls to hold boxes, bins and recreational equipment. Hooks and pegboards are ideal for tool storage. Think outside of the box in terms of storage space, and you may be surprised by the creative solutions you find.
Heavily edited collections and minimalist trends are all the rage right now, but you don’t have to get rid of everything you own in a quest for cleanliness.
Organizing your garage will almost certainly require you to donate or throw away items you no longer use. Broken, worn or damaged things you never get around to fixing might be destined for disposal, but there’s probably some life left in many of the things you no longer need.
Donating gently used goods benefits both you and others in your community. When you donate the things you’re not using, you’re able to clear out valuable space in your home. Someone who may otherwise be unable to afford an item can often score it at a bargain through a donation store.
