This is NOT our garage. Butt someday it will. We have been cleaning out a lot of things that simply need to go. Like anything, it's a work in progress.
Grooming your garage probably ranks high on your list of chores to put off until later, so definitely tackle it first.
With any organization process, the key to cleaning is clearing away the clutter. Get rid of anything you haven’t used in two years, is broken, or otherwise considered junk. Use your driveway to look through everything you’ve piled into the garage. Then, group by use such as tools, garbage, and equipment.
Storage is key. “Make sure it’s organized, clean, and can fit cars too,” recommends Lou Manfredini, Ace Hardware’s home expert. Buy hooks to get as much as you can off the floor. Peg boards, wall shelves, rolling carts and wall hooks should be used whenever possible.
Manfredini suggests using blue painter's tape to map out where you are going to hang hoses, ladders, or sports equipment. This way, you’ll be able to place your hooks easily.
Staying organized will help you get the most of your garage all year long!
