Start making a list
The first thing that you need to do, is to make a list of the things that are in the garage that you are going to need later on. If you don’t remember all the things in the garage, it really means that you won’t be able to need it anymore. You will remember the things that are important, without going into the garage.
The secret is to just keep the stuff that is on the list. If you see something that you forget about, but want to keep, you should ask yourself if you really need to have the item. Because you did forget about it. Don’t even try to keep everything that is stored in the garage.
- Organizing the items
The next step is that you should organize the garbage. Sort the stuff out in three piles. One is for garbage, the other one is for donation and the third one is for keeping. And, make sure that the donation pile is higher than the keeping pile.
And remember the list that you have made about the things that you are going to keep. Don’t add too many other items.
- Plan your layout
Now that you have just a few items that you need to store and organize, you need to think carefully about the layout of the garage. You need to make sure that you have space for parking your vehicle as well.
The best way to plan your layout is by sketching it on paper. This will give you a great idea if your layout plan is going to be doable or not. It is important to make sure that your plan is going to give you access to every item that you are keeping without making a mess again.
- Installing shelves
When you have created your plan, you can start adding the shelves that you might need to store your items safely. If you want to have a well-organized garage, you are going to need to have some shelves added to the garage. This is the only way that you can ensure that you use the garage as storage space and to park your car.
These four steps will make it easier to start organizing your clutter in your garage. After step four, you can actually start putting your things away according to your plan. With these steps, you will have an organized garage that will not have clutter anymore. And, it will not be taking as long as what you might think. This clutter nightmare can be over, in no time. But, only if you are using these four steps in creating a clutter-free garage.
