  • How About An Organized Garage For The New Year?

    If you're like me, then you know how frustrating it can be to walk outside in the morning to a cold car. Why not take some time and organize your garage better so you can park your cars inside? Here are some tips for arranging your garage better, and getting rid of all the clutter!

    Winter is well under way and if you are like many people, your cars have been banished to the driveway because your garage is overrun with bikes, kids’ toys, garden tools, trashcans, and the holiday decorations. Your garage serves as more of a storage unit than its intended purpose of housing parked cars. If you prefer a warm car to begin your morning commute, then it is time to reclaim your garage by making better use of your available space.

    Tip 1: When beginning any home organizing project, the first step should be to throw away any damaged or broken items that cannot be repaired. The second step should be to identify any items that you could sell or donate. As you organize the garage space, these “castaway” items should be placed in another location to help give you a clear idea of the items you plan to keep which will be efficiently organized in the garage.

    Tip 2: Take advantage of the vertical space in your garage. Vertical wall space is often under-utilized and can be a great place to install shelves. When selecting a shelf size, be sure to maximize the depth of the shelves while allowing enough space to walk around your car when it is parked in the garage. Shelves should also be installed from floor to ceiling to again maximize the use of space. In taking advantage of this space, be sure to put items that you need less frequently on higher shelves and more frequently accessed items on the middle to lower shelves. The top shelf is perfect for holiday decorations and the bottom shelf is perfect for the kid’s toy trucks or a bin full of garden tools.
