28 Mar Tips for Organizing Your Garage – Charleston, SC
In most homes, the garage is the designated catch-all, storing unused sports equipment, broken toys the kids (or parents!) couldn’t quite part with, and the fantasy that our future selves will have the time and energy to use the accumulated stuff for exciting projects or activities. Here are some tips for organizing your garage and decluttering the space.
Organizing Your Garage The Easy Way
Working with a professional organizer is the best way to purge the space and make your garage work for the life you have right now. Your garage represents the space to store your vehicles, as well as a place to carry out handyman projects, if the room is free of clutter.
We’ll begin by discussing your goals. What do you want to use the space for? Will it be strictly for storing vehicles? Do you intend to turn part of the space into a work space for your handyman projects, a “man cave” or exercise area? Your goals will begin to define how your space will be reimagined.
The initial purge will involve bringing everything out of the garage. It’s a lot of work, but by removing everything from the garage and cleaning the space, you and your helper create a fresh start. It’s also easier to begin sorting your items into the “Trash,” “Donate,” and “Keep” piles. When you begin looking more closely at the piles, it’s easy to get caught up in the future fantasy or the memories linked with the items. A professional organizer can ask the tough questions: Have you used this item in the past year? If it has real sentimental value, why is it gathering dust in the garage? Does it deserve a place in your home, on display? Or, is it time to let it go?
Finally, we’ll work together to design a system of storage for your remaining items. Accessible storage means that you’re more likely to actually use that ski equipment during the season, and those projects you’ve been meaning to finish. Organizing your garage is a big job that pays out big rewards. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
