It’s time to start coming out of hibernation and start thinking about summer. Before you can laze around though take a peek in your garage. Yeah, doesn’t look too great does it?!! Organizing a garage is tough but it doesn’t take long and it’s one thing to knock off the list this weekend!
1) Pitch It!
Don’t be afraid to pitch stuff. Use the 1 year rule: If you didn’t use it last year the chances are you won’t this year.
2) Trash Can.
If your garage is like ours it’s a home for junk and it needs to be pitched. Move your can into the garage and start getting rid.
Make a collection of things to donate and drive them to the thrift store soon before you forget.
Make sure when you donate items that you get a tax deduction for the amount. Just think you’re making money cleaning up!
5) Re-Arrange and Organize.
6) Window Screens.
It’s time to put those screens back in the windows so while you’re cleaning the garage give the screens a good clean too.
7) Get Things off the Floor.
If you’ve got a bike, buy some brackets to attach it to the ceiling. If you need to invest in or build some shelves. There’s no need for a garage to look like the ultimate dumping ground.
8) Have a Garage Sale.
If you’ve never had a garage sale, although they’re time-consuming they can be worth it and will make the spring cleaning easier when you know there’s a goal! See my 20 Tips To a Successful Garage Sale.
