Has your car been left out in the cold for far too many months? If you’re fortunate enough to have a garage, actually parking your car in the garage can extend the life of the car many years. S Are you guilty of cleaning out the attic or basement only to relegate mismatched items, items for disposal or donation in the garage. If you have trouble finding a pathway to walk through the garage, that’s assign that it’s well time to begin discarding, donating and reclaiming your space. Sheltering your vehicle from the harsh elements is always a sound idea. Follow these recommendations from the professional organizers to reclaim your garage for your vehicle.
Empty everything from the garage. Sweep the floor and discard all trash. Sort items into piles to keep, donate, dispose of or return. Seasonal decorations, lawn and garden, household tools and sports equipment can all find an organized home in the garage. If you’ve kept certain items to give to friends and relatives, have them claim these items during your cleanup and organization process. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and invest in the terrific organizational systems offered by The Container Store. For maximum storage, utilize the space on the walls. Hanging tools, garden equipment and sports equipment will free up floor space for maneuvering and parking vehicles. For seasonal decorations, take advantage of the great storage options available using large plastic bins or wood containers. Label the sides of these with the contents and stack in the corner of the garage or back wall. They won’t be accessed that frequently and hence will not need to be placed near the access points to the garage.
Finally, make room for garbage toters or the lawn mower if there is not a separate location on your property for these items. Best of luck to you on organizing your garage and actually giving your vehicles a new home at night!
