What's the difference between garage and garbage? The letter B.
Do you have a functioning garage that actually safekeeps your car? Is your garage organized? Do you know exactly where things are when you need them? If not, here are the first three steps you need to get started on your garage clean out.
Assess the clutter Start by creating three categories: keep, donate, and toss. As you go through the items, assign each one to a category. If you rarely use a piece, it’s probably a good candidate for the donate or toss pile.
Donate or toss Contact local charities and arrange for a pickup of items to be donated; put the toss items out with the trash or recycling.
Edit the keep pile Sort the items you’re keeping into new categories, such as sporting equipment, power tools, etc. Assign each category a location: Sporting equipment, for example, might go in a wall cabinet or a bin in a corner; power tools might be hung on a system of hooks on a large piece of Peg-Board.
